The Classic Crochet Scarf

This crochet scarf is classic but oh so trendy! The Granny stitch has made a comeback and she’s here to stay. You see her in the streets, on the catwalk and in fashion magazines. And we can make our hip accessories ourselves! How cool is that!

This easy to make classic crochet scarf is not only fashionable, it’s also really warm because it’s made with wool!

I chose to use one colour, but you can easily change the look of this scarf by playing with colours. What about changing colour each row?

You can easily make the scarf longer or wider. You’ll find the instructions in the printable pattern.

Beginner friendly crochet pattern

This scarf works up super fast and is beginner friendly. The printable PDF contains helpful photos.

If you scroll down, you can find the free pattern of the shawl but there’s also a printable PDF available in US and NL terms with extra instruction photos.

Yarn selection: Hobbii WoolPower

I love his yarn. It’s so thick and soft. It’s single stranded so its super easy to work with! And its 100% wool! So the warmest you’ll get. The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294) which is a big plus! View all the colours here.
