Easy Crocheted Ribbed Scarf

I have probably made a hundred of these scarfs in the past couple of years.  They are easy to work on since you don’t need to count stitches except for the starting chain.  Even that is variable since you can make the scarf as long as you like.  Because you are crocheting in the back loop of each stitch the scarf has a nice ribbed look when it is finished. The finished size is approximately 4” x 60”.

With worsted weight yarn and size H hook, chain 230 stitches.  HDC in third chain from hook and in each chain across.  CH 2 and turn.  HDC in the Back Loop of each HDC to the end.  CH 2, turn and HDC in the back loop of each HDC.  Repeat rows until scarf is the width you desire. I like to finish my scarf with a final row worked in SC in the back loop only.

It takes about 3 oz. of yarn to make each scarf depending on how long and how wide you make it. I have never needed more than one skein of yarn to make this scarf.

For a more decorative (instead of practical) version of this scarf, ch 275 stitches.  Work in the above pattern until the scarf is only about 2 inches wide.  Finish off.  Tie the scarf around your neck in a very, very loose Windsor knot (like a loosened man’s necktie).
