  • 8 inches wide

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Ch 24

Note: There is no special stitch count for this scarf, if you need to make it wider or narrower just increase or decrease the number of chains when you begin and proceed with the rest of the pattern.

Row 1: In the third ch from the hook, work a dc.  Work a dc in each ch across.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn.  Work a dc in the first st and in each st across.

Repeat row 2 for 68 inches or until desired length.  Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.

  1. Hello Jennifer! Thanks so much for this tutorial, it's so simple and your instructions are great! I'm working on my scarf now and was wondering if you steam blocked this scarf? Is it necessary? I'm new to crocheting and just read it somewhere today. Thank you!
