Simple Scarf - Part of the Charity Stash Bash crochet along...

Hello everyone, it is time for our next pattern in the Charity Stash Bash CAL.  This month we have a crochet scarf designed for absolute beginners.  It's a quick and easy pattern and matches the Basic Beanies that we made at the start of the year.

This pattern is also being featured as part of the Crochet for a Cause CAL and as such, the pdf version will be available to download for free for one week, starting Monday 17th July.  Each Monday during the event, two designers will make their pattern available to download free. Their pattern will be free for one week only so be sure to check back every Monday.  You can find more information about the cause and links to the free patterns here...

All designers will be sharing hat and scarf patterns with the aim of donating them to your local homeless shelter, school, cancer centre or pregnancy resource centre.  This coming Monday it is my turn to share a pattern and you will be able to download the pdf for my Simple Scarf free for 1 week.  Remember this pdf will only be free for 1 week so be sure to head on over to Ravelry for your pattern.

Click the picture above to find other great patterns, you will need to check each Monday to see what pattern is available for that day.  Click the picture below to get your free pdf of the Basic Beanies pattern.

The Simple Scarf

Darning needle
5mm hook


2-4 [5-10, 11-Teen, Adult]



Abbreviations US Terms (UK conversion)

hdc - half double crochet
ch – chain
st(s) - stitch(es)
sl st - slip stitch
mc - main colour

Other notes: Ch 1 at the start of the row does not count as a stitch.  The scarf is worked back and forth in rows horizontally, with fringing added at the end.

Foundation Chain

With mc ch 110 [160, 190, 220]

Row 1 Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn.  (109 [159, 189, 219] hdc)

Row 2 Ch1, hdc in each st across, turn.  (109 [159, 189, 219] hdc)

Repeat row 2, 6 [8, 10, 12] more times or until desired width, fasten off and weave in ends.


With cc cut lengths of yarn slightly more than twice the length you would like the fringe.  Using 3 strands of yarn for each tassel, fold in half to make a loop, push hook through the bottom of scarf and pull the loop through.  Pull the ends of yarn through the loop to form a tassel (you may need to pull each individual thread in order to neaten and tighten the tassel).

Add one tassel at each row end and trim to neaten.  Repeat on the other end of your scarf.
