Cute Long Scarf = Perfect Easy Winter Project

January 30, 2011

I never learned to crochet when I was growing up.  My Grandma Mae was a big knitter so I learned to knit instead.  Having recently taught myself to crochet a few simple stitches, I must say I’m hooked!   I finished this up watching American Idol with my 12 year old last week.  It’s warm and long and I love it!

Here’s what I did.

  1. Start by chaining until you have the length you want.  My scarf is 80 inches long, without the fringe.  I used a size N crochet hook and some bulky yarn I’ve had lurking in my closet.
  2. Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain until the end.
  3. Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), turn, work a double crochet in each stitch until the end.
  4. Chain 1, turn, work a single crochet in each stitch until the end.
  5. Repeat rows 3 and 4 until it’s the width you want.  My scarf is about 5 inches wide.
  6. Add fringe to the ends if you like!

  1. That turned out beautiful! I've been addicted to crocheting lately. It's very therapeutic. I'm making a throw blanket now just using Lion Brand Super Bulky yarn and it's coming along very quickly!

  2. Nice! and quick! I have one I've been working on for years now. I usually go the width instead of the length. Mine's about that long. I was going to turn up the ends for pockets, but I might just add some fringe and call done! :D
