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.

      @Annie The scarf took 5 hours to make. Not the fastest of DIY projects, but it gives me something to do when I watch movies =)

      This is so pretty. I would love to make it. Are you using US or UK terms and is it all one stitch?

        Hi Kandi- I'm using US terms and the scarf is made using 2 different stitches; a single and double crochet

      Once you start the double stitch on the second row do you just continue with the double stitch throughout the process?

        Yes, that's correct. The rest of the scarf is made using a double crochet stitch.

      hi, how did you make this scarf? by crocheting the first color until 6ft? or 125 chains?

      could you be so kind and respond with a quick step by step
      i just want to know if i should make 125 chains in one color or make 5 inches one color and 6ft down and then start the next color thanks

        The scarf is knitted lengthwise. The 125 chains (6 ft)are made in the first color (white). You crochet until the pieces measures 5 inches wide. The next color is added by crocheting along the 125 chains. Continue to crochet until the new color is 7 inches wide.
        I hope this clears things up!
