Hi everyone! I’m Cyndi, Tiffany’s sister and she is teaching me how to crochet. This is my very first project which is an easy fun pattern for the absolute beginner!
I made this scarf using two colors of gray and another version in teal and winter white but any color combo that makes you happy works!
It took me approximately 6-8 hours of crochet time to learn how to make this, and that doesn’t include the time I spent undoing and re-doing until I got the hang of it. But it was so worth it in the end. I’m glad I finally figured it out.
Single Crochet: Insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.
Back Loop Single Crochet: Insert your hook into the little ‘v’ that is to the back of the work or furthest away from you. Work Single Crochet as described above.
Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (100% Acrylic Ball Size Solids: 100g / 3.5 oz, 99 meters / 108 yards, 6 weight Super Bulky)
2 skeins, 1 gray heather, 1 true gray
Size M/N 9mm crochet hook, tapestry needle, scissors
72 in x 7 in
Choose either color to begin. Chain 17
Row 1: Begin in the second chain from the hook with a single crochet (SC), work 1 SC in each chain across the row. CH 1 turn. (16)
Row 2: Work 1 SC into each back loop across the row. CH 1 and turn. (16)
Repeat row 2 for 126 rows or approximately 36 inches
When you have 36 inches, pull through on the last step of the stitch with the new color.
Continue repeating Row 2 for an additional 125 rows or approximately 36 inches.
To finish, cut about an 8 to 12 inch tail then pull the tail through the final loop. Then, using the tapestry needle, weave the end in and out of the stitches about 5 or 6 time. Clip the yarn close to the fabric.
Fringe: Cut 64, 16 inch pieces of yarn. I made an 8 in x 3 inch card with cardboard to wind the yarn around in order to keep the pieces even. Thread two pieces of the fringe through each of the 16 stitch openings on both ends of the finished scarf using a loop knot.
I’ve had so much fun already learning from my sister. We chat about each project for about 40 minutes LIVE on Tiff’s Youtube channel if you want to listen in and learn more about how I’ve been doing. Here’s the episode where I show this half and half scarf:
