If you have yarn and can made a double crochet, this is the simplest scarf/cowl you can possibly make. It’s got a lot of impact for such a simple project. The yarn really does all the work for you! As usual, Sara has turned out a wonderful free pattern for us. This is both a great project for a beginner, using a skein of a favorite yarn, or for a more experienced crocheter who needs to use up scraps and partial skeins – a stash buster.
Half double crochets are my favorites as you’ll seldom find me making a project with very many single crochets in it. But, a double crochet project seems to really finish up quickly. I bet you’ll enjoy making this one. As usual, color choices will make all the difference. And, since the scarf pattern is no-frills, it would work fine for a guy. School colors, team colors, camouflage yarn – find out what will work best for him and crochet it up lickety split!
