Do you want to make a cute scarf for the fall time or winter time? If so, i’ve got the perfect free pattern for you today. The beginner crochet scarf is made using simple crochet stitches and the most softest yarn.
Can you believe this scarf uses only one skein of yarn! Plus, the color change is made gradually throughout the yarn. So you don’t have to worry about constantly changing the yarn per row.
But before I get way ahead of myself talking about this gorgeous yarn. Let’s talk a bit about the inspiration behind this crochet scarf.
Inspiration + Design
As most of my designs do, this crochet scarf was actually suppose to be a crochet blanket. After making a few swatches, I realized that this was definitely not going to be a crochet blanket.
Don’t get we wrong, I love crochet blankets and have a few here and here on the blog. But I didn’t think the yarn was the right choice for a crochet throw. Plus, it would definitely be on the expensive side.
So what do I do with this yarn, create a really cute beginner crochet scarf. Using only skein that naturally changes color per each row.
Boom, the beginner crochet scarf was made! I think it turned out pretty good if I say so myself.
It’s easy enough for a beginner, but also fun to make for a more experienced crocheter. I can’t wait to wear this scarf during the cooler months, with a hot cup of tea in hand. How about you?
Yarn Sub + Sizing
The yarn I chose for this project is by Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee collection called TURIN Antique Rose. Just like the name suggest, this yarn reminds me of antique colors.
It’s a really nice yarn that changes colors gradually. Plus, it’s super soft and you only need one skein to make this beginner crochet scarf.
However, if you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you or live in a different country. Any number 6 bulky yarn would work for this project. I would definitely recommend checking your gauge.
As some yarns do differ. But any yarn will work for this project, so check to see what you have in your yarn stash.
As far as sizing goes for this beginner crochet scarf. It will fit any person. I made the crochet scarf this way because I really wanted everyone to be able to wear it.
So let’s get into this pattern. But first check out these patterns below.
OTHER PATTERNS YOU MIGHT LIKE
What You’ll Need:
- About 270 yards of super bulky yarn (6), I used Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee yarn in TURINAntique Rose.
- Size N Hook (10mm)
- Tapestry needle
- 8 stitches x 4 rows = 4 inches
- Scarf is 62 inches long (not measuring the tassels).
- Tassels are 6 ½ inches.
- ch- chain, sc – single crochet, hdc – half double crochet, hdcblo – half double crochet back loop only
- Chains at the beginning of each row do not count as a stitch.
- Make sure your tension is on the looser side when making this scarf, because if your tension is tight it will start rounding.
- To get the rib affect in this pattern, I used the stitch half double crochet in the back loop (hdcblo). So instead of going into two loops, you’re just going in the back loop only.
- The tassels on this scarf are totally optional. I think they look really cute with the scarf, but it also looks good with no tassels.
Row 1: hdc in second chain from hook and across (107)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, hdcblo across row
Row 3 – 11: repeat row 2
Row 12: ch 1, turn, sc across row
Finish off and weave in ends.
The tassels are completely optional. I think they look cute with or without them.
I cut out a 6 inch cardboard rectangle and wrapped my yarn onto the piece of cardboard 3 times. Then you want to cut the yarn.
Then remove the yarn from your cardboard and insert the yarn with your crochet hook on the bottom of your scarf.
Then take your two fingers or crochet hook and insert it in the loop and pull the string through. And there you go, you have a tassel! All that’s left is to cut the bottom of the tassels to your preferred length. I added 9 tassels to my scarf.
And your done with your scarf!
