Another great option for beginner crocheters to learn and practice is with this simple beginner crochet scarf. This one is very easy to make and works up quickly using a bulky yarn.
As you know, I firmly believe that the best way to learn is by doing. So, I have created this video tutorial and written pattern for a very simple, but stylish, crochet scarf pattern.
Be sure to have a big hook and three skeins of a bulky yarn. For this one, you will measure the length to finish it to your specific size.
Scarves are a great beginner project because they are usually a repeating pattern and they are fairly fast to work. Plus, you only have a few stitches to count!
You will get practice with your foundation chain, double crochet stitch, and learn how to join a new skein of yarn to your existing project. I show you one technique to add in a new skein of yarn and secure it to the first skein.
We will also add a quick fringe to this scarf to give it a little extra something fun!
So, let’s get started!
- 3 skeins of bulky (5) yarn. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in Los Angeles Tan.
- M/N 9.0mm hook
- measuring tape
Techniques and Abbreviations

Video Tutorials for Beginner Crochet Scarf Pattern
In this first tutorial, you will see how to start your project and work your foundation chain and row 1 of the pattern.
In this second video, you will learn how to work row 2 and beyond in this pattern.
In this last video, you will learn how to add a new skein of yarn to your project and how to finish your project.
How to Make A Yarn Fringe For Your Scarf
Step 1 – Fold a piece of yarn and cut your yarn to the folded length you would like your fringe.
Step 2 – Slide folded end of yarn through bottom stitch to create a loop.
Step 3 – Take two ends and pull through the loop.
Step 4 – Pull the two ends tight to secure the fringe to the scarf. I used two fringe pieces for each stitch on the scarf – so 32 fringe pieces for each end.
And now you have a gorgeous scarf to wear or share as a gift!
