This Has To Be The World's Easiest Scarf Pattern To Crochet!

Recently I was at Hobby Lobby doing my yarn shopping thing, and I saw something new they were doing! They are selling little bundles of various types of their fancy yarns as scarves! The intent is that you just tie off the bundles at intervals and voila, you have a scarf.

Well, I was intrigued by the possibilities and took a bundle home with me. I thought that yarn just hanging there was a bit too simplistic, so I sat here and started chaining the strands of yarn. I chained, and chained, and then I let the chained strands hang out for awhile to look at them. Then I decided to play with braiding the chained strands, and that look really intrigued me!

So here you go - the world's easiest scarf to make! If you can make a crochet chain stitch, you can do this! And you don't have to run out and buy the $9.99 bundle from Hobby Lobby, either! I think this would look very nice in virtually any combination of scrap yarns. You could also buy 3 different skeins of yarn and make your chains just from those. Whatever yarns you choose, this is a winner for a fun look or for one very fast gift to make someone special!

What You Will Need

A whole bunch of your favorite yarns

Crochet hook size H or your preferred

How To Make It

Chain, chain, chain... Make each chain the same length without stretching. (Remember variations in yarn size will make each chain turn out a different number of chains per inch). Fasten off each chain by pulling yarn thru last stitch tightly. Weave in end.

If you wish, braid three strands of chains together. Or try braiding larger groups of chains. Or, just let the chains hang out without braiding.

I did not want mine to be "permanently" tied so I tied bows at intervals along my scarf with a pretty shiny yarn, as shown. That way I can simply untie them if I want later on.

      so many people in family can crochet, they're so talented ..I learned very young, but didn't keep it up - I do love it though, it's so addictive and calming (at least for me)
