How to: Crochet a Scarf (double crochet)

I have included written instructions with pictures, as well as a video:

  1. Create a slipknot.  Then crochet 13 chain stitches. Chain 2 more stitches. IMG_0976IMG_0977
  2. Count down 3 loops from the edge and do a double crochet into the 3rd loop.
    • You will wrap the yarn around your hook once before inserting it into the 3rd loop.
    • Once the hook comes out the other side of the 3rd loop, wrap the yarn around your hook again.
    • Now pull it back through.  You should see 3 loops on your hook.IMG_0979
  3. Wrap the yarn around your hook once and pull through the first two loops.  You should only see 2 loops left. IMG_0980
  4. Again, wrap the yarn around your hook and pull through the last two loops.  IMG_0981
  5. You will continue steps 2-4 into the next 12 chains.
  6. Once you reach the end, chain 2 additional and then rotate your work.  (you should always work from right to left) IMG_0983
  7. Repeat the double crochet stitch until you reach the desired length (typically 4-5 feet in length, or 48-60 inches.
  8. When you’re done, cut your yarn and pull it through the last loop and tighten. IMG_0985IMG_0987
  9. Use a crochet needle and hide the tail.IMG_0989
