diy crochet scarf

November 11, 2011
This tutorial shows you how to crochet a scarf using 2 simple stitches (single crochet and double crochet)
  • 4 different colored balls of yarn (I used worsted weight)
  • Crochet hook (size K)
    [A single crochet chain is the starting point for all crochet projects. To begin, tie a knot and slip it over the hook. The wrap the yarn from the back to front and pull through. The video below shows how it is done]

    To make the scarf: Crochet 125 chain stitches. The rest of the scarf is made using a stitch called “Double Crochet”

    Here’s a video illustrating the Double Crochet and explaining a turning chain:

    IMPORTANT- Remember to make a single crochet turning chain every time you read the end. This keeps the shape. Otherwise you’ll rectangular scarf will end up looking like a triangle!
    The scarf is 6 feet long and 20 inches wide. I crocheted the white yarn until it was 5 inches wide, the light grey until it was 7 inches, the charcoal until it was 5 inches and the black until it was 3 inches. I kept my stitches loose so the scarf would have a loose, lace-y texture.
