I wanted to make a scarf that’s not too thick and that I can wear during the spring & autumn seasons. But if you use a thicker yarn you can easily transform it into a really warm winter scarf.

The stitch I’m using in this pattern is commonly used for ribbing. It’s elastic, soft and resembles knitting. The main stitch is single crochet (SC) and back loop single crochet (BLSC). This pattern is so easy which makes it perfectly suitable for beginners. If you are an absolute beginner, you can watch this tutorial first on how to start to crochet, making the first loop and single crochet stitch.

I love this stitch. I think it looks great especially in scarves, beanies and wherever you need some stretch. It’s an easy and repetitive pattern, so you don’t have to pay a lot of attention to what you’re doing! 🙂
