An Easy Crochet Pattern For Beginners

When first learning to crochet, it can be difficult to find patterns for projects that are at your level of skill. Many patterns will say they are easy or for beginners, but they can be misleading. This pattern uses two stitches that most beginners can use. And, this pattern may even be of use to some veterans, as well.


This pattern can be made with any yarn that catches your fancy. Look on the label of the yarn and you will find a suggestion for the size of crochet hook that will work best with your yarn. The scarves I have shown in the photos were all made using Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Weight Yarn and a size I/9 hook. Since there is not set number of stitches, you can use a bulkier yarn or even a smaller yarn. It all depends on what you want, how you want your scarf to look.


First, decide how wide you want your scarf. You may want a skinny scarf or you might fancy a wider look. Whatever the width, make a chain that is the width you desire, then chain 5 more stitches and turn.

Next, in the fifth stitch from your hook, double crochet in the stitch. Double crochet to the end of the chain and turn.

Chain 3 and skip the first double crochet. Double crochet in the next (second) stitch and continue to the end of the row. Be sure to do a stitch in the second chain stitch of the turning chain. This will keep the sides even. Turn.

Continue with the above until you have a scarf that is the length you desire. You can add fringe, if you choose. Remember to skip the two outermost stitches when working your fringe into the scarf, or your ends will be wider than the middle.

If you would like to make a scarf that is stripped, change colors every few rows. Change every 2 rows for skinny stripes, every 4 rows for medium stripes, or every 6 rows for wide stripes. The top photo of the burgundy and gold scarf was made changing colors every 6 rows. If you like a quirky look, make your stripes different sizes or even all different colors.

No matter how you decide to make your scarf, it will be a one of a kind creation. You can either keep it for yourself, sell it at a craft fair, or give it as a gift. Hopefully, these instruction will help you make as many scarves as your heart desires.
