Some weeks ago, I decided to design a very simple scarf that can be made using any yarn weights and couldn’t be happier with the result of this easy crochet scarf pattern that is now available as a free pattern.
The simplicity of this easy crochet scarf made it a design even a beginner crocheter can make. It uses basic crochet stitches and has simple repeats of basic rows. This is a pattern you can crochet while watching your favorite movie as you do not need to be glued to the written pattern.
Yarn suggestions for this easy crochet scarf pattern
This prototype was made using fingering weight yarn gifted to me by Wecrochet. The yarn is simply amazing! It was fun crocheting with the yarn and can’t overemphasize how much I love the completed scarf.
