You will want to make these for everyone on your list!

Hello everyone! Once again I am sharing one of my favorite crochet patterns for you to make and give to all those young gals in your family. This beautiful crochet scarf is so easy you can make it in one sitting, seriously! It's a simple pattern that does not require much time to crochet. I have made a few in my day and the girls I have given them to have loved them. My dearest friend Carolyn received a black one last year for Christmas and she was delighted. It was just what she needed and uses it during the cold season all the time. It just warms my heart when I see her wearing it to church. It looks great on her and I am so proud to have given it to her.

I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have some chilly winters and cool fall seasons so these beautiful scarves come in handy for sure. I really believe that you will love making this beautiful scarf and that you will get creative as to the type of yarn you use. In this case I used “Impeccable” yarn which is 100% acrylic and you can purchase at your local Joann’s fabrics or Micheal's. But you can also use a Red Heart Soft yarn called "Love", or even try a variegated yarn in your favorite color, which will get a totally different effect and look. You can skip the fringe if you want to or add beads to the bottom of every other fringe for extra pizazz. I know that whatever color or type of yarn you decide to use, your scarf will be gorgeous. So grab those things I told you about and get started – and be sure to have fun. If you would like to purchase an already crocheted scarf go to my Etsy Shop!!

This is what you will need:


  • 1 skein "Impeccable" 100% acrylic yarn 268 yards
    or "Red Heart's Love" yarn


  • Crochet hook size 10.5 or K

Instructions for crocheting this cute purple scarf

These are the stitches you will use: HDC: half double crochet - SC: single crochet

  • 1st row: chain 20
  • 2nd row: HDC in second chain from hook and in each chain across - 18 HDC made. Chain 2 turn
  • 3rd row: HDC in each stitch across - 18 HDC made. Chain 2 turn. Repeat this until your piece measures approximately 57".

Last step, SC around the long edges of the piece to give it a finished look.

Add fringe by cutting 6" pieces of yarn and using 4 threads for each section. Tie each 4 piece threads at the bottom between each HDC, so you will tie approximately 9 fringe sections to each end of the scarf.

That's it, told you it would go fast. So easy and it is so warm and cozy using the impeccable yarn, whoever gets one of these will rave on for months about it - guaranteed!
