Easy Scarf Crochet Pattern- make in just one and a half hours!

 

Finished Cream and Brown Easy Crochet Scarf Pattern

 

This simple crochet scarf is a simple one-row repeat after you get past the first two rows. This will make a great project for last-minute gifts. 

 

Finished Simple Crochet Scarf in brown color

 

The stitch looks a little like the bean stitch but is far easier to work. It also has the much-needed drape for a scarf as opposed to the dense fabric of the bean stitch.

I really love this stitch and want to design a matching hat for this scarf. Maybe I should add a pair of fingerless mittens to complete the set. What do you think?

 

Finished Simple Scarf to Crochet

 

The original pattern was written for chunky yarn but I figured a lot of people would love it in worsted weight yarn too. So I am including that option as well.

Materials

1. Cozy Wool yarn from Loops and Threads in color Harvest and Fleece was used to design this easy crochet scarf pattern. It is a size 6, super bulky yarn but has far more drape than other commonly available yarns of the same weight.  

2. A 9mm hook. You might have to use a bigger hook if your scarf doesn’t turn out 6 inches wide. 

3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. 

 

Finished Sizes

4 to 5 Years – 5 inches wide and 40 inches long

6 to 10 Years–  6 inches wide and 60 inches long

Woman– 6 inches wide and 76 inches long

 

Yardage

4 to 5 Years– 2 skeins of Cozy Wool yarn or 150 yards

6 to 10 Years– 3 skeins of Cozy Wool yarn or 220 Yards

Adult– 3 skeins of Cozy Wool yarn or 270 yards. 

 

Stitch Abbreviations

ch- chain

sc-single crochet

sk-skip

YO- yarn over

 

Stitch Explanations

SHD(single half double decrease)-Insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, YO, and pull up a loop in the next st, YO, and pull through all the 4 loops on your hook to complete your SHD. It is like single crochet and a half double crochet stitch joined together. 

 

Gauge

Start working the scarf and if after a few rows, it is not the width you want, switch to a bigger hook.

Pattern Notes

Stitch counts for bigger sizes are given in brackets in the order 4-5 Years(6 to 10 Years, Adult)

 

Ch 11(13, 13). You can chain any multiple of 2+1 to adjust the width of the scarf to your liking. 

 

Row 1: SHD across 3rd and 4th ch from hook, *(ch 1, SHD over next 2 ch), repeat from * across to last ch, ch 1, 1 sc in last ch, turn. See Stitch Explanation above to learn how to work an SHD. ——4 (5, 5)SHD and 1 sc st

 

 

Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st here and throughout), SHD over first sc and next ch-1 space, *(ch 1, SHD over next SHD, and next ch-1 space), repeat from * across to last SHD, ch 1, sk last SHD, sc on top of skipped ch 2, turn. ——4 (5, 5)SHD and 1 sc st

 

 

Row 3: Ch 2, SHD over first sc and next ch-1 space, *(ch 1, SHD over next SHD, and next ch-1 space), repeat from * across to last SHD, ch 1, sk last SHD, sc on top of beginning ch 2, turn. ——4 (5, 5)SHD and 1 sc st

 

Keep repeating row 3 until your scarf is 40(55, 76) inches long. See how to join a new skein of yarn below. 

 

If you want to customize the size of your scarf, a good rule of thumb is to make it as long as the height of the person. 

 

 

How to join a new skein of yarn

Joining a new skein while working your last sc: Start working the sc as usual and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, YO and pull through the new skein of yarn. 

 

 

Joining a new skein while working an SHD: Start the SHD as usual and once you have 4 loops on your hook, YO and pull through the new skein of yarn.

 

 

 

Finishing

Weave in any tails left. 

 

 

Easy Scarf Pattern- Worsted Weight Version

 

Crochet Scarf made with worsted weight yarn

 

Choose to make the scarf in a solid worsted weight yarn or use a lovely self-striping yarn for a completely different look. 

 

Materials

1. Big Twist Soft yarn in color Rose

2. K(6.5mm) hook

3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. 

 

 

Finished Sizes

4 to 5 Years – 5 inches wide and 40 inches long

6 to 10 Years–  6 inches wide and 60 inches long

Woman– 6 inches wide and 76 inches long

 

 

Yardage

4 to 5 Years– 1 skein of Big Twist Soft yarn or 230 yards

6 to 10 Years– 1 skein of Big Twist Soft yarn or 320 yards

Adult– 2 skein of Big Twist Soft yarn or 420 yards

 

 

Crochet Pattern

To make this same scarf in a worsted weight yarn, ch 17 (21, 21) and follow the same pattern for the chunky scarf above using a K(6.5mm) hook. Your stitch count at the end of the rows will be 8(9, 9)SHD+1 sc st

 

Adding Fringes

Note– I added fringes to the worsted weight version as a finishing touch. You should factor in the length of your fringe while deciding on the final length of your scarf. 

 

Wrap the yarn multiple times around a small book. Cut along one edge to get yarn strands of equal length. 

 

Take 2 strands at a time, fold the middle, pull the fold through the edge of the scarf, grab all 4 strands with your hook and pull through the loop formed. Repeat to attach more fringes along the base of the scarf.

Do you have a video of how to single half double decrease? I'm a visual learner, the written instructions do not make any sense to me (dyslexic)(love speech to text)

Love the scarf pattern and all your patterns. Enjoy your emails! What is the organization to send scarves to the military. I want another charity project for winter. I make charity baby blankets but would enjoy another option.
