Curly Wurly Crochet Scarf - The Pattern

A simple easy to make scarf, but it looks so groovy when finished that everyone will want one.

I made this in a gorgeous fluffy lemon and lime coloured wool.

So, all you need is your yarn  - any weight yarn is ok up to Aran Weight.  (amount depends on length and width of scarf) and a size 4.5mm crochet hook.
If you need to learn how to crochet have a look on You Tube, loads of stuff on there.

  • First of all you will need a chain stitch. Make a long chain in simple chain stitch the length of how long you would like your scarf to be.

  • Working back along the chain -Treble Crochet into each chain stitch. (PLEASE NOTE: in the USA the UK TC or Treble Crochet stitch is referred to as the DC or DOUBLE CROCHET stitch)

  • ***The next row is 2 x Treble Crochet stitches into each of the stitches on the previous row. This increasing is what will make your scarf curl.

  • Repeat from *** for each row until your scarf is as wide as you would like it to be. Tie off.

Let me know if you make it, would be interested to see any piccies.
