On a scale of one to ten, one being easy and ten being hard, crocheting this scarf is a two. If you can chain and double crochet, you can make this scarf. Double crochet makes a great drapey scarf that is easy to tie or wrap into any style you like.
Now, trying to take a picture of a cat wearing a scarf?
Yeah, that’s about a nine.
Yarn: Lion Brand “Wool-Ease” 4-ply worsted weight 80% acrylic, 20% wool – 3 ounces/85 grams – 197 yards/180 meters per skein
You will need at minimum two skeins per scarf (~400 yards/360 meters total), but since this project is a great stash-buster, you really can use any worsted-weight yarn or combination of yarn as long as the care instructions are the same.
Color: I went for a solid look, but again, with the stash-buster theme, you could try multiple colors for stripes. If you like the color I used, it’s called Blue Heather.
Hook: size J or something close enough that you have lying around
Gauge: 3 double crochet and two rows of double crochet is just shy of one inch – but gauge really isn’t that important with this scarf
Size: approximately 9″ by 78″
Row 1: Skip 3ch (count as 1 dc), *dc into next ch; rep from * to last ch, turn
Row 2: Ch 3 (count as 1 dc), *dc into next ch; rep from * to last ch, turn (You should have 26 dc per row)
Rep 2nd row until scarf is approximately 78 inches long (about 124 rows)
Weave in all ends. Find cat and attempt to drape said feline in fabulous new scarf.
There may have been bribery involved to get Kif to hold still long enough for this picture to be taken. I recommend many, many treats and lots of patience!
