FREE Crochet Scarf Pattern

So, here it is:- An easy enough crochet pattern for a warm wintery scarf that even a beginner crocheter can enjoy making!!!

Supplies:- One skein of Red Heart Super Saver acrylic yarn (appx. 6-7 ounces) and a size I or K hook (depends on how loose or close together you like your stitches). Guage is not critical for this project.

Step 1:- Chain 15 ( It is important to chain one stitch more than you will need, because it will "disappear" when we start crocheting :-)...).

Step 2:- Now, the stitch we are doing is the single crochet. To do it, insert your hook under BOTH loops, yarn over, pull through, and yarn over again and pull through. If you want to make a scarf like my beige one in my earlier posting, simply place your hook under the back loop ONLY. This will created a ribbed stitch appearance.

Step 3:- When you have reached the end of your row (you should have 14 stitches- not 15, because one should have disappeared) chain 1. This chain 1 is called a turning chain, and allows you to turn your work.

Step 4:- Repeat Step 2 until the scarf is as long as you would like it.

Step 5:- Finishing your scarf is a very important last step:- Cut your yarn, leaving a 6 inch tail. Using a tapestry needle, weave it in between the stitches. Do this same thing with the beginning tail.

Wrap the scarf around your neck and enjoy!!! For cool videos on how to crochet, I highly recommend youtube...It is an awesome resource!!!:-)...
