Materials: assorted scraps of yarn in desired number of colors, any weight, approximately 100 grams total (be sure to keep yarn the same type & weight for easy washing & stitching), & a size K (6.5 mm) crochet hook
Gauge: doesn’t matter, but keep your stitching steady & work the slip stitches loosely
Measurements: completely customizable
Abbreviations (pattern uses US terms):
sl st BLO: slip stitch in back loop only, loosely
Pattern Note: Slip stitch crochet is considered an intermediate skill level, even though the slip stitch is one of the first crochet stitches you learn as a beginner. Most crocheters are used to crocheting these stitches tightly. In order for the scarf to look “right” and have a nice drape to it, it is important to crochet slip stitches looser than you are used to. Try to make your stitches as consistent in size as possible. Scarf is worked lengthwise, turning after each row, always starting & ending with a 6” tail for fringe. Change colors as desired.
Foundation Row: With first desired color, starting with a 6” tail or desired length for fringe, create a slip knot & slip onto crochet hook. Ch 200 or desired length for scarf. End off, leaving a 6” tail for fringe.
Row 1: Turn work. With next color, starting with a 6” tail, create a slip knot & slip onto crochet hook. Sl st in the bottom bump of ea ch across row. End off, leaving a 6 “ tail for fringe.
Row 2-24: Turn. With next color, starting with a 6” tail, create a slip knot & slip onto crochet hook. Sl st BLO in ea ch across row. End off, leaving a 6” tail for fringe.
[ *tip* Counts rows is tricky in slip stitch crochet; instead, count your yarn tails. Each tail is one row]
If you wish a shorter or wider scarf, simply add or subtract desired number of rows.
End off. Do not weave in ends. Trim yarn ends evenly to use as fringe, block, and wear with pride!
