Learning how to crochet a scarf is so simple. There are tons and tons of crochet patterns on the internet and in books that you can follow or you can always make up your own pattern. Once you know the basics of crocheting, it will be very easy for you to crochet any scarf that you desire.

The basic instructions for crocheting a scarf are to start out with a foundation chain that is as long as the width of the scarf you want to crochet. Using the foundation chain, you can continue to make rows of crocheted stitches, using any crochet stitch that you like.

Each row you add will make your scarf longer, so just keep adding rows until it is the perfect length for you. When you determine that you added enough rows, simple cut your yarn and tie the end, so your scarf does not unravel. To finish off, weave the end of the yarn as neatly as possible into your scarf.

There is an infinite number of ways you can crochet a scarf. Here is a very basic, easy to follow pattern for beginners.

Crochet Pattern: Scarf
Row 1: ch 31, sc in second ch from hook, sc in each ch across
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across
Repeat row 2 until the scarf is as long as you desire. Finish off the scarf by cutting the yarn and weaving the end into your scarf.
