My Crochet Pattern Notes
This beginner crochet pattern is perfect for learning crochet with something other than the same old boring double crochet on every row. It doesn’t look like a beginner scarf when you’re finished and that’s the best part.
This scarf is the worsted weight version of the Knit Look Beginner Scarf. It’s the same stitch pattern, but in DK weight instead.
The scarf is crocheted from short edge to short edge. Once finished, you have the option of adding knotted fringe.
Crochet Spider Stitch
The stitch pattern I’ve used for this scarf is one of my all-time favorites. I use it a lot. It’s quick and easy to do and has a nice drape. Read more about the Crochet Spider Stitch and find other patterns in the same stitch pattern.
There is only a one-row repeat and it’s made of only single crochets and chains. The simplicity of the crochet spider stitch is the jewel of this design.
Making Fringe on Crochet Scarf
This scarf includes a knotted fringe, each one is made of 3 pieces of a 15-20″ piece of yarn.
Making fringe on a scarf is very easy. It just takes a little time. Once the scarf is complete, trim the ends so they’re all the same length for a professional finish.
How To Wash A Scarf With Fringe
The best way to wash a fringed scarf is to gently hand wash. Shape and allow to air dry. Be sure to straighten out the fringe while the scarf is wet so the yarn pieces will be nice and neat.
If you prefer to use a washing machine, use the gentle cycle and wash in a garment bag. You should still shape and air dry, though. The dryer won’t straighten out the fringe and they can get very tangled and curly.

Free Crochet Pattern Instructions
Row 1: Ch 30, sk 2 ch, *sh (see Special Stitches above) in next ch, sk 2 ch, rep from * to last ch, sh in last ch, turn: 10 sh.
Row 2: Ch 1, sh in each ch-2 sp of sh across, turn: 10 sh.
Rows 3-150: Rep row 2 (or until length desired). Fasten off.
Weave in all ends securely.
Each fringe is made with 3 strands and there are 10 evenly-spaced fringe on each side. Wind yarn 60 times around the cardboard or really, anything that measures about 8-10″ tall. I like to use a DVD cover.
Remove the loop of yarn and cut along one side (the side where the winding was started). This produces 60 strands of yarn.
Take 3 strands of yarn and fold in half. Insert crochet hook from back to front in a space, pull the strands through to form a loop about 2-3″ long. Bend the ends of the strands over and pull them through the loop. Pull down on the strands until the knot is tightened.
Once complete, straighten and trim the lower edge of the fringes to match. You may need to spray the fringe with cool water or steam if the strands are curling.
