Crochet modern yet very easy scarf or How to Crochet easy modern scarf- with step by step photos and video tutorial.

As a crocheter you must be familiar with the feeling of satisfaction when you make something for your loved ones! I always like working on projects for my little ones or for my hubby than for myself and this is one of such projects which I made for Pranaw.

The climate is very extreme here in Bahrain which gives me chance to design challenging projects with 100% cotton for summer and warm wool for winter. 🙂

When I was thinking of this scarf, I wanted it to be modern and elegant looking. I knew, I am gonna keep stitches simple as I had decided to go with Lion Brand’s Silky Twist and Homespun yarn and both of these yarns have strong character. I have already used Lion Brand’s Homespun yarn for U-shaped Travel pillow and knew its very warm and very soft, so perfect scarf. Both these yarns are machine washable and dry-able which is very important for me!

As I said, I wanted to keep the stitches simple so I decided to play with front post double crochet to get some depth to the scarf. Then tried implementing a new weaving technique with contrast color yarn, that I had learned recently, so read the post below to check that!

R3 to R6 is one pattern. I repeated this pattern 14 times. You can decide repetitions depending on your desired length.

To match the ends, make one FPdc row and a single crochet row, cut the yarn and sew in the yarn.

Tassel:

Take Sand Dune color yarn. Leave almost 12″ of tail and then make slip knot. Start making little loose chains. The number of chains depends on length of your scarf, keep chains on the scarf and work till you get the full length. I have made 130 chains for my scarf. Then cut the yarn by leaving again almost 12″ tail and fasten off. Similarly make total 6 of chains with tassel.

Assembling:

Take one chain and insert in the gap between 1st and 2nd stitch of 1st row, take it out from the gap between 1st and 2nd stitch of 2nd row, again go down at 3rd row and come up at 4th row. Keep on doing till the entire length of the scarf.

Leave 3 or 4 stitches and insert next chain.

Then take a string of linen color yarn, fold it into half. Insert hook in between the two chain tassels and pull up the linen yarn loop.  Pull out two ends of yarn through the loop. Connect 5 tassels on either sides of the scarf.
