This scarf is perfect for cold winter months. It's nice, thick, and made with a heavier yarn. It will definitely keep you warm. I used a cake yarn by YarnBee that I got at Hobby Lobby for about $6. You can use any yarn you would like for this pattern, but I suggest using a medium weight yarn (5) as that's the size the YarnBee was. This pattern is perfect for making a scarf for yourself or for giving one away as a Christmas present.
- Size K crochet hook.
- YarnBee cakes yarn in size medium (5), a little over half a skein
- Darning needle (for weaving in the ends)
- Ch: Chain
- HDC: Half Double Crochet
- BPHD: Back Post Half Double Crochet
- FPHDC: Front Post Half Double Crochet
- DC: Double crochet
To begin chain 23.
Row 1: DC into third ch from hook, DC across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1 BPHDC across, turn.
Row 3: Ch 1 FPHDC across, turn.
Row 4: Ch 1, DC across, turn.
Row 5: Ch 2 DC across, turn.
Repeat rows 2–5 until you reach row 143, or you can loosely wrap it around your neck twice.
Once you have your long piece that can wrap loosely around your neck twice, you have a few options for finishing. You can tie off in slip stitch all the way across to join the end to the beginning (that's what I did on this scarf). You can also use a darning needle and whip stitch the ends together, which would make a much less noticeable join.
