*I forgot to take a picture of it wrapped twice around my neck, but this pattern does allow for it two be wrapped two times around the neck. 🙂
Isn’t it fun to see all the great scarves in the stores right now?! The idea for this crochet scarf actually came from a knit lace scarf that I saw while my mom and I were out shopping (though that scarf was a greenish color). Had I knit this, it would have taken weeks for me to finish.
I made this beginner crochet scarf in three evenings, and could probably have done it quicker! And by beginner, I mean BEGINNER. I actually started off by trying to do some crochet lace, and then trying some half double crochets, etc. But after playing around for quite some time, the best look was to use a big hook and single crochet the whole thing. No need to complicate things. Ha! It’s a lot like the yellow summer scarf that I made not all that long ago. 🙂
I found this amazing yarn when I was browsing at Jo-Ann Fabrics while baby was in preschool. Normally I do not like hairy, furry yarns because they tend to shed. Those fuzzies always end up in my eyes and my mouth, and though it looks cool, it’s just too hard to wear I tell ya! Am I just getting old?! I tried to kind of test this yarn in the store to see if any of the little fuzzies would come off, and they didn’t. Even after crocheting this entire thing, I didn’t have one piece of fuzz come off of it. I was even crocheting in black pajama pants, and had NOTHING on my pants. I am so impressed and happy to find this yarn. Really, I wish you could reach through the screen and feel it because it is SOOOO SOFT!
See pictures below of it being made. 🙂
*This is great for a beginner
*Uses up two skeins of yarn
You will need:
Size US Size P16 / 10mm Crochet Hook
2 skeins Buttercream Angel Hair Yarn from JoAnns or comparable yarn
How to make it in the round (what I did):
Chain 74, slip stitch to join, ch 1
Round 1 until you use up both skeins of yarn – single crochet around (no need to join each round, or count rounds)
It doesn’t get much easier, right?
The chain seemed to want to twist, so if you are a TRUE BEGINNER, here is an easier way to get the same look
How to get a similar look crocheting it flat:
Row 1 Single crochet across, ch 1, turn
Row 2 until you use both skeins of yarn or you reach desired length – Repeat row 1
Once you reach the desired length, whip stitch both ends together
I think this would make a really thoughtful gift for just about anyone. If you make it, I’d love to see a picture! Just post it to my Facebook page, or send me an email. 🙂
What do you think of the fuzzy yarns? Are you picky with them too?
