Ridged Scarf Crochet Pattern

Scarves are the first thing most people make when they learn to crochet. And, it is nice when you can add variety to your projects. Here is an easy pattern for a beginner to crochet to give as a gift or keep for personal use. This pattern will have a ridge on every other row on both sides.

Materials:

Worsted Weight Yarn. Red Heart Super Saver Yellow.

Size J crochet hook

Pattern:

Chain 22

ROW 1 - In third chain stitch from your hook, single crochet (sc). SC in the rest of the chains to the end. Turn.

ROW 2 - In each SC across, SC in the front loops only. Turn.

Repeat ROW 2 until the scarf is about 55-60 inches long.

Bind off and weave in any loose yarn ends.

Tips:

1. Be sure to only crochet through the front loops of the stitch. Watch for the yarn to separate. If this happens, you will have a messy looking scarf when you are finished

2. Check each row when you finish for stitches that have gone through both loops. There will be a gap in the ridge. It is much easier to tear out a few stitches than it is to tear out several rows and do them over. Making the same stitch over and over again can be monotonous and it is easy to let your attention wander. It is not the end of the world if you miss a stitch. However, if you are giving this scarf as a gift, you want it to be as close to perfect as possible.
