This is a pattern for those who hate following crochet patterns. This stained glass scarf is so easy to make, and if you can make a foundation chain and single crochet, you can make this project with ease.
The great thing about this scarf is that it works up so darn quickly…so you can have a fun lightweight accessory for summer in no more than a few days.
Stained Glass Summer Scarf
What You Need:
- Yarn of your choice, 1 skein should be plenty
- Crochet hook of your choice (whatever you have on hand will work for this)
- Make a foundation chain of roughly 30-40 stitches. This will be the width of your scarf, so you can add or decrease stitches as you see fit.
- Turn your work over and chain 5 stitches. Single crochet into the 10th stitch from the hook. Chain 5 stitches and single crochet into the 5th stitch from the hook. Repeat chaining 5 and single crocheting into the 5th stitch until you’ve reached the end of row 2.
- Now you’re free to go crazy! What I did was I’d chain 5 and single crochet into the middle of the loop. I didn’t count stitches, I just did it at random. I like the uneven look of the scarf…and not using a consistent pattern does give it a stained glass appearance.
- You can make the holes bigger or smaller by increasing or decreasing your chains. Keep making loops until your scarf reaches the desired length.
This is a great project for beginners, too! Believe it or not, it’s one of the first things I crocheted when I was learning!
