If you have been mulling over crocheting for long, but have been pushing the idea for a while, then a scarf can be a great choice for you as a beginner. So grab your spools of wool, lay your hands on a pair of crochet hooks, and follow the simple instructions given below on how to crochet a scarf to end up with a fine looking scarf.

Crocheting A Scarf

Things Needed
  • Crochet Hooks (number 1)
  • 2 Spools of Yarn
  • Tapestry Needle
  • First choose your desired yarn color. You can either make your scarf out of solid colors or make easy patterns by using two or more colored yarns. If you are a beginner, choose solid colors to crochet your scarf as this will be easy for you.
  • If you still wish to have some designs, make it striped by changing the colors every few rows. To crochet a striped pattern, work with even number of rows which is always easier than working with odd number of rows. For example, you can alternate the color after every 10 rows you stitch to make simple but colorful stripe patterns.
  • To start with, agree on the width of your scarf. You will have to accordingly increase or decrease the number of rows. Then, single crochet a chain with your desired width.
  • While crocheting, be sure to count the chains so that you don’t skip any. When you are doing a single crochet in the second chain from the hook, don’t count the chain that is already on the hook. For example, crochet 31 chains in the first row, then 30 chains in the second row.
  • Keep on doing this until you have reached the desired length. Scarves can vary to a great extent in their lengths and widths, so it is important for you to decide at in beginning as to how long you want your scarf to be.
  • If you run out of your yarn or if you wish to change the yarn (if making a colorful pattern) then pull the end of the yarn through the final loop and secure it properly so that it doesn’t loosen up and spoil all your hard work.
  • To secure the loose end, thread the yarn with a tapestry needle and stitch it.
  • If you wish to make your scarf a little fancy, you can add decorative fringes at the ends of the scarf.
  • If you decide to add decorative fringes to your scarf, you will first have to decide the length of the fringes. If you want your fringes to be 8 inches long, then cut your yarn to 16 inches in length and fold it in half.
  • Now, fasten the yarn thread one by one into stitches at the last part of the scarf for each single crochet stitch.
  • With a doubled strand, use the crochet hook to slither through the single crochet stitch. Then loop the yarn by putting in place the two ends of the strand into the circle you have made.
  • Now, pull and you will have two threads for the fringes in the single crochet stitch. Replicate this until you have finished all stitches.
