Crocheting a scarf is a simple project and is achievable by anyone who has mastered the basic crochet stitches. The article provides some simple steps on how to crochet a scarf.
Required Raw Materials. Basic things needed for crocheting a scarf are: o Scissors o Size H hook o Any worsted weight yarn
Pre-requisites to crochet a scarf. Before you begin to crochet a scarf, you need to decide the dimensions of your scarf and accordingly calculate the number of stitches and rows. Generally, crocheted scarves vary in length from 55 to 100 inches.
Simple Steps on How to Crochet a Scarf. To crochet a scarf, follow these simple steps: o Make a foundation chain. To begin with, you may make a chain of 15 crochet stitches. o For crochet row 1, follow these steps:
Keep a single crochet in the second chain from the hook, in one loop only. You can use the remaining loop for adding fringe when you finish crocheting the scarf.
You should have 14 single crochets when you finish the row.
Chain one stitch at the end of the row.
Turn the work around and start the second row. o For row 2, follow these steps:
Put single crochet in both the loops of the stitch. You should have 14 single crochets when you finish the row.
Repeat row 2 until you get the crocheted scarf of the desired length.
When you reach the last row, do not chain row one at the end, as is the case with the other rows.
Finish off crocheted scarf by cutting the yarn and weaving its ends.
Simple Steps on How to Crochet a Loop Scarf. For a loop scarf, follow these steps: o Crochet the foundation chain with the required number of stitches. o This crochet scarf pattern repeats a ‘right side row,’ which is on the right side of the fabric and the ‘left side row,’ which is on the left side of the fabric. o While working with the rows on the right side, follow these steps:
Insert the crochet hook under the two loops and bring them together to form a new loop.
Now, let the hook release the loop, and with your left hand, make this loop long.
Make a single crochet in the back loop. o While working with the rows on the left side, the only difference is in the last step. Here, you have to make a single crochet under the two loops of each single stitch from the previous row. o Repeat these two rows alternatively, until you get a crocheted scarf of the desired length. o Finish off the scarf crocheting by cutting and weaving in the yarn.
