One Skein Quick Crochet Scarves

Since the beginning of October, I've taught a few knitting and crochet classes. To the dozen or so new yarnies out there: Hello! I hope you're all enjoying winter's lure to stitch up warm things.

Also in October, I hooked up a couple of beginner scarves - the staple first project for my crochet classes. They also make nice quick gifts, under an hour if you're fast, and if you're a coupon-slinging shopper, it costs less than $5.


Long & Skinny: 4" x 76" (10 x 190 cm)
Thick & Warm: 5" x 60" (13 x 152 cm)

You'll need:
1 Ball of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick-n-Quick for each scarf
Size P/16 (11.5mm) crochet hook, or size needed for gauge

Gauge: 5 DC x 4 Rows 4 x 4" (10 x 10 cm).

CH 98(78) very loosely, leaving tail as long as desired fringe.
Working into the back loop of each CH,
DC in 4th CH from the hook and in each CH across.
Including turning (skipped) CH's, you will have 96(76) DC's.

Turn. CH 3 (counts as 1st DC). Skipping first DC, DC in next and in each DC across, 96(76) DC's. Repeat this row 2(3) times more, for a total of 4(5) rows, then fasten off, leaving tail as long as fringe.

To make fringe, cut yarn into 20(24) equal strands, twice the length of desired fringe. Use 2 strands for each fringe point - at the beginning and end of the first and last rows, and in between each middle row.

  2. i love the scarf pattern.I was just thinking that you look like winny from the wonder years.(Thats a compliment)

  3. This is one of the best patterns for a quick yet stylish scarf I've seen! I've made 7 of these so far and I'm constantly being asked to make more. This is perfect for all of the chunky yarn stash I didn't know what to do with. Thank you so much!

  4. I really like this pattern. I think I am going to have to learn how to crochet...

    It's so cute!

  5. I am not a crocheter, but I was able to make this scarf today and it's now blocking! Thanks for sharing this with all of us. I now have the confidence to try other crochet projects :)

  6. Thanks for posting this fun little scarf. I had a need to crochet late one night and found your project filled that need. Thanks again.
