Stained Glass Crocheted Summer Scarf

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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
