Are you ready to make a Super Simple Scarf? Scarves may be one of my most favorite items to crochet. They can really be made in all shapes and sizes and with any size yarn. This Super Simple Skinny Scarf is made with a fingering weight yarn. It is a good project for someone who has never worked with a fingering weight yarn before and wants to try and expand their ability.
One of my favorite weight yarns to work with is a fingering weight yarn. It always adds such nice stitch definition as well as a very nice drape. This weight yarn also looks good when worked in a lacy stitch or in a solid stitch pattern.
This super simple scarf comes to a point at each end. The first point is created with increases and the second point of the scarf is created with decreases. One stitch is used throughout the scarf and that is the half double crochet stitch. This stitch is also a favorite of mine to work with.
You will find that this design includes instructions on how to add a beaded edge. This step can be totally optional. I just had some beads that went well with this yarn so I decided to add them. I think beadwork in crochet add such a nice finished detailed look to a project.
This scarf pattern is part of a Blog Hop of 30 Unique Gift Ideas for MUM hosted by Me ‘n’ My Hook.
