Like chunky knits? Then this is the craft project for you! Try making my really simple crochet scarf. It’s made using just one easy stitch but, with super chunky yarn and colour blocking it looks completely awesome!
Make this warm and woolly scarf using the written pattern below And there’s a video tutorial to accompany it. Pop across to my YouTube channel HERE or click on the picture above to go straight to learning how to crochet.
Before I kick off with the pattern, I’m going to tell you that there is a small and perfectly formed Patreon crochet community for Zeens and Roger and also a Ko-Fi account. Patrons get exclusive content every month; ko-fi spenders are helping out by raising cash for a new, better camera so that photography improves and video quality on the tutorials and podcasts is clearer.
- The written pattern is in US terminology as it seems more people use that than UK. Substitute for 1htr instead if you only speak in UK terms.
- For a neater finish work the first row into the back bumps of the chain.
- I used a 9mm hook and super chunky yarn.
- I decided on seven balls of yarn for this scarf.
- If your tension is really loose try an 8 or 8.5mm hook instead. Tight? go up to a 10.
You’ll need four balls of King Cole Timeless (90% acrylic, 10% alpaca, 93yds/85m/100g): Turquoise, Grey, Rose Petal and Mustard and three balls of King Cole Explorer (80% acrylic, 20% wool, 87yds/80m/100g): Hawkins, Drake & Earhart. (Full disclosure, I received the yarn for free as I’m an ambassador for King Cole).
Row 1: 1hdc in second ch from hook, hdc to end, turn. [28 sts]
Row 2: 1ch, hdc in front 3rd loop to end, turn.
Rep Row 2, changing colour every 20 rows. Alternate solid colours with variegated colours. That’s it!!
