Free Pattern: Chocolate Truffle Scarf

I still need to copy all of my Michaels.com patterns back over to my blog here, so bear with me! Someone recently requested the Chocolate Truffle Scarf, so here it is! I will try to update all the old links, too!

Eat your chocolate and wear it, too! I designed this scarf of candy truffles so that you could feel like a walking box of chocolates — cute and scrumptious! Mix and match yarn colors to create your favorite truffle flavors, then decorate with dots, hearts, swirls, or stripes. Guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth, this scarf makes an enjoyable and decadent treat!

Materials List

  • Crochet Hook, size I/5.5mm, or whatever size needed to obtain gauge
  • Crochet Hook, size H/5.0mm
  • Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™ in Chocolate (1 skein), Aran (1 skein), Soft Rose (1 skein). Note: if you want truffles of only one color, you’ll need 2 skeins of that color to make a whole scarf.
  • Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™ in Cherry (approx. 15 yards)
  • scissors or yarn cutter
  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • optional: 5mm pom poms, washable fabric glue like Aleene’s® OK To Wash-It® or Fabri-Tac™.

Gauge

Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™: 14 sc x 16 rows = 4 inches x 4 inches

Abbreviations

ch(s) = chain(s)
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
rnd(s) = round(s)
sc = single crochet
sk = skip
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
[  ] = repeat what is inside the brackets the number of times indicated

Truffle (Make 16 in colors of your choice. I made 5 Chocolate, 6 Aran, and 5 Soft Rose. Hint: the Truffle is worked upside down, starting with the top of the dome shape.)

Unravel approximately 18 inches of yarn to use for sewing later, then with I-hook, ch 9.

Row 1: Sk 1st ch and work 8 sc evenly across. (8)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. [Work 2 sc in the next st] 2 times. 4 sc evenly. [Work 2 sc in the next st] 2 times. (12)

Rows 3-4: Ch 1, turn. Work sc evenly across. (12)

Row 5: Ch 1, turn. [Work 2 sc in the next st] 2 times. 8 sc evenly. [Work 2 sc in the next st] 2 times. (16)

Rows 6-16: Ch 1, turn. Work sc evenly across. (16)

Now, without turning your work, you’ll make a border of sc evenly around the sides and top of your Truffle. You can follow the chart below.

Here’s the chart written out:

Work 2 more sc into the last st worked (i.e. last st of Row 16). 10 sc evenly along the side of your Truffle until you reach the beginning of the curvature. Work [2 sc in the next st, and 1 sc in the following st] 2 times. Now you should be at the top of your Truffle. 8 sc evenly across the top. Then, along the next curvature, work [1 sc in the next st, and 2 sc in the following st] 2 times. 10 sc evenly along the side, leaving one st remaining. Work 2 sc into this last st to turn the corner, then sl st into the 1st st of Row 16 to join. Break off and weave in end, keeping the 18 inches of yarn from the beginning for sewing Truffles together later.

Drizzle Decorations

I always think it’s a good idea to sketch your scarf first, so you can map out colors and embellishments that you want to use. Check out the sketch I used for my project.

Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 12.56.01 AMTo decorate the tops of my Truffles, I surface-crocheted chains in zigzags and spirals. If you’re not comfortable with surface crochet, you can use an H-hook to work approximately 12 inches worth of chains and sew them onto your Truffle in fun patterns. Weave in yarn tails as you go.

You can also use mini pom poms and fabric glue to add sprinkles to each Truffle.

Small Heart (Make 5)

I crocheted 1 small heart for each Soft Rose Truffle. Using a smaller hook makes the hearts dense and tight.

With Cherry and H-hook, make magic circle or ch 3 and sl st to first ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1 and work 5 sc into ring. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (5)

Rnd 2: In same st, work 3 dc, 1 hdc, and 1 sc. 1 sc in next sc. 3 sc in next sc (which forms bottom point of Heart). 1 sc in next sc. In the next st, work 1sc, 1 hdc, and 3 dc. Sl st to next st to join (which should be your sl st from Rnd 1). Break off leaving about 18 inches of yarn for sewing. Weave in yarn tail from beginning of Heart, and use the 18 inches of yarn to sew Heart to Truffle.

Assembly

To make the Truffles at both ends of the scarf hang vertically when worn, arrange them into two separate strands — one that is 9 Truffles long and one that is 7 Truffles long (as in my sketch above). I make them different lengths so that the change in direction doesn’t appear in the very center of the scarf. Make sure that you like how the Truffle colors are organized, then align and sew them together using the 18 inches of yarn from the start the Truffle. If you don’t feel comfortable eye-balling the stitches, I’ve included a chart below (Photo #2).

    You know when you said to give ideas about Valintines Day I know it’s a little late ( a lot late ) but I have an idea.
    Have you ever done a pattern for Reese Peanutbutter Cup? It’s like my fav candy and it is really tasty ( in my opinion )

  3. Melissa says:

    Do I really NEED another scarf?? Probably not….but I’ll make it anyway!!

    I know this is really late, but I think Slurpuff would make the perfect Valentine’s character pillow. It’s a Pokemon made to look like sweets.

    I just showed the picture of this scarf to my teenage daughter — who has been ‘yumming up’ a box of Pot of Gold “Excellence” Fine Chocolates and Truffles that we had received for Christmas. Unsurprisingly, she loves this scarf! You create the *best* designs! I think I’ll be making one of these for my daughter and one for me, as we’re both chocoloholics, ha-ha! Thank you for sharing this pattern!
