Simple Crocheted Scarf

I would still classify myself as very new to crocheting, but have had some fun with various projects, making headbands and purses etc.  I wanted to make a scarf for my Dad and couldn’t find a pattern I liked so I decided to just make my own, if you are new to crocheting this would be a great project.  Or if you are just wanting to whip up a quick scarf here you go.

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet

Okay I did my scarf in two colours but you could use more if you wanted to.

Colour A
make a chain the desired length of your scarf
Row 1 (turning ch) ch 1, sc in each ch stitch
Row 2 (turning ch) ch 2, hdc in each stitch
Row 3 (turning ch) ch 3 dc in each stitch

Colour B
Row 4 (turning ch) ch 3, dc in each stitch
Row 5 (turning ch) ch 2, hdc in each stitch
Row 6 (turning ch) ch 1, sc in each ch stitch

Repeat Colour A and B until your scarf is your desired width.

I left a few inches of yarn each time I switched colours and then worked my ends in to the scarf. You can end there or you can add a single knot fringe to the ends.UPDATE:  Just occurred to me that I neglected to mention hook size I used a ‘I’ 5.5 mm, with medium yarn (4) worsted.  Depending on how bulky or thin you want your scarf you could change things up and it would still work.
Happy Crocheting!
