Easy crochet scarf pattern for beginners – This Cozy Autumn Days scarf is the perfect beginner crochet scarf pattern if you’re looking for a fast 1 skein project that still has a unique look!
It’s been a very cold and wet fall this year and honestly, I really don’t like that type of weather. The dampness gets into my bones and just makes me ache.
So I decided I need to make a new warm and cozy scarf that would keep me warm this fall and winter. I love how fast this scarf
More Crochet Patterns:
I wasn’t sure what color or yarn to go with at first but then I found the Lion Brand Scarfie yarn I fell in love with the colorway Oxford/Claret. This is a pretty yarn that has both light grey and a red wine color.
It reminded me of the grey sky we have here during the fall and winter months and the pretty contrast with the red autumn leaves.
Scarfie is a soft wool blend yarn, 22% wool, and 78% acrylic. Each colorway is a blend of 2 solid colors that slowly blend from one to another. Since Scarfie is also a bulky yarn your scarf works up fast!
Back Loop Double Crochet Stitch
To give my crochet scarf a unique look I decided to use the back loop double crochet stitch instead of a normal double crochet stitch.
Don’t worry this is very easy to do!
When you insert your hook into the crochet stitch instead of putting it under both loops in the top of the stitch, put your hook in through the top of the stitch and out the back loop.
You can see how to make this stitch in the video I did for my easy crochet headbands tutorial.
But don’t worry if you would prefer to use the normal double crochet stitch you can do that, the scarf just won’t have the same ribbing look to the pattern.
