You can make a lovely, warm, pretty crochet scarf. It is not that difficult. If you know how to double crochet, this will be quick and easy.
5.5 mm crochet hook
Make a slip knot. (If you do not know how, you can learn by watching a YouTube Video.)
Chain 13. (If you do not know how, you can learn by watching a YouTube Video.)
In third chain from hook, do one double crochet. Double crochet in every chain all the way across the row. At the end, chain three and turn. (If you do not know how, you can learn by watching a YouTube Video.)
*Double crochet in the first chain from the hook and all the way acr0ss the row. Chain three and turn and repeat everything in the paragraph until the scarf is as long as you want it to be.*
Once your scarf is long enough, clip the yarn with scissors, leaving a yarn tail of about six inches. Pull your needle out from the stitch it is in. Pull the yarn tail through the stitch and tighten. Thread the needle with the yarn and run the needle across a part of the scarf for about an inch and then run it through the opposite way underneath the first inch. Do this one more time underneath the second inch. Clip the extra yarn.
Go to the other end of the scarf and repeat weaving the tail through the scarf. Clip any extra yarn and your scarf is ready.
For my crochet scarf, I used a Caron Cake so the different shades of blue were all one continuous piece of yarn. Caron Cake Yarn is 80% acrylic and 20% wool which gives it a soft texture. You can find Caron Cakes at Michael's Craft Store or at michaels.com.
You can use any type of acrylic or other yarn you like.
If you would like a wider scarf, at the beginning you can chain, 15, 20, or 25 stitches instead of 13. I make scarves using all of these sizes. You can also use a larger crochet hook.
variation you can use is to change the stitch. This scarf uses a double
crochet stitch. I also use single crochet on some scarves and
half-double crochet on other scarves. There are also many other
stitches. I suggest buying a how-to crochet book and watching a lot of
YouTube videos to learn how to crochet different stitches.
