PA316052 This simple scarf was inspired by an easy stitch pattern.  I wanted a scarf with some texture and durability to make as gifts mainly for the men in my life, but this would be nice for just about anyone. Combining two basic crochet stitches, the simple repeat pattern works up quickly and is a great one skein project. This design is great for beginners and would also be a great pattern to use for charity projects. A shorter scarf length makes a great neck warmer.

Materials: any worsted weight yarn

“K” hook

scissors

tapestry needle

Notes:  Scarf can be made wider by increasing # of beginning chains; likewise, narrower by decreasing # of beginning chains.  Adjust hook size if using different weight yarn.

Gauge is not critical for this project.

Instructions:

ch 19

R1:  1 sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in each remaining ch across. Ch 3, turn. (Do not count turning chain as a stitch here and throughout).

R2:   dc in next sc and in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.

R3:  sc in next dc and in each dc across. Ch 3, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 to desired length, ending with R3.

Finish off by weaving in ends.
