How to Crochet a Scarf Pattern

Crocheted scarves are stylish accessories to wear with casual or more formal clothing. A simple scarf is constructed of chain and double crochet stitches and is crocheted to a comfortable length for a child, teen or adult. The simple design is a fine mesh which can be created in a 3-ply solid or variegated colour pattern. A more experienced crocheter will be able to use a novelty yarn such as bulky or fine eyelash fibre.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose a solid colour 3-ply yarn. Baby yarn will produce a soft scarf while the commonly used 3-ply worsted yarn provides warmth for winter wear.

  2. 2

    Make a chain of 26 stitches with a size G or larger hook. Wrap yarn over the hook. Make a double crochet stitch in the third chain from the hook.

  3. 3

    Chain-1, skip one stitch in the foundation and make 1 double crochet in the next stitch along the entire chain. There will be 15 double crochets and 12 chain-1 spaces in Row 1. The scarf will be 6 inches wide.

  4. 4

    Turn the piece and chain 4 for the first double crochet and chain-1 space in Row 2. Double crochet in the top of the first double crochet of row 1 and chain-1. Double crochet in each double crochet with a chain one in between to the end of the row. End the row with 1 double crochet in the double crochet.

  5. 5

    Repeat Row 2 ending with 1 double crochet in the top of the chain-4 for Row 3. Continue repeating Row 2 until the scarf is at the desired length. A 60-inch long scarf will have 90 rows.

Tips and warnings

  • Trim scarf with handmade fringe or tassels fashioned from yarn for a different look.
  • Keep an accurate count for each row to prevent a crooked or misshapen scarf.
