Make This Fashionable Scarf in One Sitting

I'd was out and about and stopped into a country store. I saw this lovely yarn and was taken with how pretty it looked. I loved the range of colors that peeked through the thick lofty and slightly fuzzy yarn. I grabbed some skeins to take back home with me, not sure what I would make with it.

I wasn't disappointed when I later made a scarf from it. I was very pleased with how this yarn worked up and how it looked--so soft and full and with fab colors--rather amazing for such an easy scarf.

As such, this scarf would be a good project for beginners but it's certainly pretty enough that even seasoned crocheters might enjoy making it.

Bernat Frenzy yarn is perfect for creating fashionable winter wearables that look as though they came out of a high-end boutique.

Because of the thickness of the yarn, this scarf whips up quickly and a scarf could easily be made in a sitting or two.

It Just Doesn't Get Easier

  • Ebay
  • Etsy
  • Various online sellers who still have some left

Buying Tip

If buying your yarn online, make sure to buy yarn from your own country, if possible. Why? Duty charges can add up, so this is an important consideration when purchasing any item from a country other than your own.

Pattern

Foundation chain: Make a loose chain of 78 stitches (these are worked loose so that bottom edge does not curve).

Row 1: Ch 2 (serves as first Hdc). Work hdc in second chain from hook. Continue along row, working hdc in each chain stitch (79 hdc, 78 loops). Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: In next row, work hdc into each loop along row. Ch 1, turn.

Complete 10 rows, inserting hdc into loops along each row. Fasten off.

Fringe

This yarn has a neat little kink to it so if you choose a fringe, it works well. I did, as can be seen in the photos, and liked how it curled and squiggled, which only added to the look of the scarf.

Tassels may be added to either end in the loops. (Cut yarn to desired length and thread through loops.)

If a wider scarf is desired, simply work additional rows.

Loft in Bernat Frenzy Yarn

I was impressed with the loft of this yarn and how it felt to the touch and found myself thinking it would be a perfect yarn for hats too. A set could be made using this scarf pattern and making a hat to match.

The two videos below demonstrate the stitches used in this scarf pattern.

A Word About Half Double Crochet

This stitch is compact enough to offer warmth yet offers a pretty, lacy effect. It's one of the faster stitches, which makes it a good choice for crochet projects. It's also a sturdier stitch, which serves well for outerwear.
