Easy Curly Scarf [crochet pattern]

Curly Scarf

This is one of my favorite scarves in the world to make!  It works up so fast and it's fun to see it curl while you work!



Copyright 2010-2012 LiLu Studios: This Crafting Life, by Lori Steffens. {http://www.thiscraftinglife.com/} Make it, Wear it, Love it, but above all, Share it, don't Sell it!

Special Notes: When you start this scarf, just make a chain that is however long that you would like the scarf to be.  You can use a variety of needle sizes, for this one, I used an "I", for the next two, I've used different sizes.... The black on is a "N" and the purple is a "P"
Pattern:
ch however many you like for the length
sk 1st ch, sc in ea ch after, ch 2, turn
sk 1st sc, 2dc in ea sc to end, ch 2, turn
sk 1st sc, 2dc in ea dc to end, tie off.

  5. Anonymous,
    however long you want it to be, that is how long you should make your beg. chain... I usually make a scarf with 200 ch stitch using an I hook ..if you use a bigger hook maybe use less chains?

  7. About how many rows do you do?

  8. If I do more rows will it still be curly?

  9. tecksbuk, yes, provided you continue the pattern of 2dc in each st. it will just make the scarf wider :)

  10. LiLu,
    Im a beginner and i am stuck on the second line of instructions. I am trying to teach myself to crochet so I am unsure how to execute the second line of instructions. Can you give me more detailed instructions? How do I put 2dc in ea sc?
    Thanks,
    Lu

  11. Well first, I'm going to assume that you know how to execute both a dc and an sc, and that you know how to stitch in both loops on the top of a stitch as in standard crochet. Where in a normal square pattern you would just put one stitch in the top of another stitch, you put two. In essence, it is an increase in every stitch across the row. Please see this link for some pictures and a different way of describing it:

  12. Just wanted to say thanks so much for the cute easy pattern! I'm new to crocheting and slowly learning. This is the second scarf I've made and the very first pattern I've followed. Super happy about how it turned out!!

  14. So, I actually looked up this pattern while trying to find a way to make a ruffle scarf. I ended up making half a curly scarf, then tied off and went back to the original chain and did the exact same thing but on the opposite side. Takes a massive amount of thread, but the resulting scarf was very cute and VERY ruffly. So, thank you for posting this pattern - I hope you don't mind that I expanded upon it a little.

  19. Hi, I'm wondering about changing color...did you change after every row? Thanks, I can't wait to try it out!

    1. You can do that, and it would make an interesting spiral- however the color changes in the picture above are from an ombre yarn by Red Heart (I can't remember the color) but it just worked up that way! :)
