Simple Scarf Pattern

This is a crochet scarf that I have been making for a couple of years.  It works up really quickly and is easy to make.  It looks really great, too!  The scarf makes a great Christmas gift!  I know I am making one for my daughter in her favorite color.  I have already made a couple for myself as well!
Enjoy!!

Simple Scarf


Worsted Weight yarn
I hook

Abbreviations
Ch-Chain
DC-Double Crochet
ST- Stitch
Ch 2 does not count as a stitch.

Row 1: Ch 18, dc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across, turn.  (16dc)
Row 2-End: Ch 2, dc in each st across.  (16dc)
Continue Row 2 until the scarf is the length you would like.  I usually make my scarves about 60 inches long.

If you want to give the scarf a bit more of a finished look you can add tassels to the ends of the scarf.

    1. I never thought of adding instructions for the tassels! I am so glad you asked. I will get something put together to explain how to add the tassels. Hopefully, I will be able to have it added by the end of the day.

  2. How do you get that shadow or ripple look? I am fairly new to crocheting and like the look but cant seem to gat it to look that way.

    1. You get the ripple look by crocheting in back loop of the stitches.
      You know how on top of the stitches, the stitch looks like a sideways V? Instead of inserting your hook through both loops of the stitch, you only use the back loop.
      Hope this helps!

    3. Did you do the ripple look on every row? Or every other?

      Did you ever say how to do the fringe?
      Thank you

    1. Yes! Actually it used up less than a skein. I can't remember exactly how much I had left when I was finished, but it definitely didn't use a whole skein.

  5. Hey! So I'm taking the 13in13 challenge, and have created a blog shadowing these efforts. One of the thirteen goals is crocheting, and this scarf is my new goal!

    And believe it or not, a very ambitious one. I just learned to chain stitch for my wedding in May for a ceremony element.

  7. to get the ripple look is it one row regular dc and one row in the back loop. I have made several in the dc with fringe but this look is better. Thanks

    1. Every row is done in the back loop. That is how you get the ripple look. :)

  13. Thanks so much for this pattern. I crochet scarfs for our church giving tree each year, and I will include this pattern in the group. I have made afghans using the same "back loop only" ripple pattern", using Home Spun yarn and they are soft and lovely. All the people I give them to love them. I also make them for different charities, for their gift raffle table each year. Again thanks for sharing your pattern.
