Easy Crochet Scarf Pattern

by Johnnie Collier

Easy Crochet Scarf

It was love at first stitch with me and Lion Brand Homespun yarn.  Rummaging through the ol’ yarn supply, I found a single skein of this fluffy, soft, variegated fiber in the warm color scheme “Bourbon”.  A simple scarf I whipped up a few years back came to mind, and I got busy.   Today I will share with you this beginner level, super fast pattern that creates an elegant spiral effect, using evenly spaced increases every row.  The only stitch you need to know besides chain stitch is double crochet.  I made this in a single evening while catching up on a miniseries.  I plan to make a few more for Christmas gifts.  This project is ideal for sharing some holiday handmade love!

You will need:

  • Size K crochet hook
  • Single skein of Lion Brand Homespun, or other bulky weight 5 yarn

Crochet gift ideasIf you have never crocheted, I hope this inspires you to learn.  It brings great joy in many ways.  For my favorite resources to get you started, visit my craft links page and look under “Crochet”.  I taught myself using Crochet Cabana, which you will find linked there.  Happy hooking!

Hello! I’ve just followed your directions and the scarf is beautiful, but I do find it a little long on me. I would like to try to make another one a little shorter but I’m unsure if it would have to be done at a certain increment so that the rows will work out correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
