Basic Skills Necessary:

  • work basic crochet stitches: ch, sc, hdc, dc
  • read and follow a crochet pattern

Pattern Description:

This scarf is quick and easy to make. Even newer crocheters will be making this scarf with ease! If you already know how to make a chain, single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet, as well as how to read and follow a crochet pattern, you're ready to make this scarf.

The pattern is easy to follow and includes full instructions for making the scarf with the fringe. It also includes close-up photos of the scarf and fringe, instructions and step-by-step photos for working in the back bump of the foundation chain, making a Long double crochet (Ldc), starting a row (joining) with a sc or a hdc and making the fringe.

The scarf is completely reversible, thanks to the special stitch worked in the black rows. And, best of all, there are no tails to weave in, since the tails are included into the fringe.

The scarf, as shown, uses 175 yds of black, along with 25 yds each of watermelon, mango, lemonade, limelight, blue mint and grape Caron Simply Soft yarn. You can use any colors you desire to make your scarf.

The scarf size is adjustable in width by working more or less rows and in length by working more or less repeats across the rows. So you can make your scarf whatever size you desire!
