Simple Crochet Scarf Pattern

Simple Crochet Scarf

Sometimes it’s just nice to sit down with a Simple Crochet Scarf Pattern and work away at it mindlessly. There is something about it that has a very relaxing effect.

A simple crochet scarf pattern can be a great comfort to someone who is a beginner too and just learning to crochet. It’s a relief to be able to find a simple pattern like this one and know you will be able to get through it all without getting confused. There is even a video tutorial you can follow below if you do get confused.

Materials Required

5.0mm Crochet Hook

1 ball of Red Heart With Love Yarn (Medium Worsted Weight Category 4). This is a really nice yarn to work with and is soft so it can be worn around the neck.

Yarn Needle

Written Instructions

ch 15 loosely.

Row 1: 1sc into 2nd ch from hk, 1 sc into each st across to the end, turn. (14 sts)

Row 2: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as join, 1 sc into each st across, turn.

Use my Crochet Turning Chain Chart if you are unsure of which stitch to put your hook into at the end of the rows.

Rep Row 2 as many times that is required to obtain the scarf length that you desire.

Tip: If your work starts looking more like a triangle rather than a rectangle then it means you have been missing on making the last stitch at the end of each row.

To Make up

Finish off; leaving 15cm of yarn to weave into the back of the last row of the scarf with the yarn needle to hide the yarn tail.

Tip: I usually cut the yarn the same length as the width of the scarf so that I can run the long thread right through all the stitches of the whole length of the scarf. This way you can be sure your end thread will never pop out when wearing your scarf whereas if you had a short thread there is the possibility it will pop out of your scarf over time.

All the best,
