The other day I showed you the basics of crochet, namely chaining and making single crochet. I also shared a simple washcloth pattern you can make with just those two techniques, but what if you want something even simpler?
It’s another quick and simple project that uses up a ball of yarn — in this case a big, bulky ball — and a little bit of leftover yarn can be used as an accent, too. That may be my favorite part on mine.
There’s so little to this project I feel bad even calling it a pattern, but here it is.
How to Crochet a Chain Stitch Scarf Necklace
To get started, you’ll need a ball of super bulky yarn (mine is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Constellation) and a giant crochet hook. I think mine is an N-13, or 9 mm.
Bring the yarn over and pull through both loops. Then pull the yarn through that stitch to end the chain loop. (This is also called a slip stitch, which is used to join rounds when you start working crochet in the round/square.)
Find where your yarn ends went.
I love this pop of pink, and the yarn actually has a bit of black in it, too, which is cool. The contrast of the big, fluffy metallic and the smoother, thinner wool is great, too.
I love this project so much, and I can’t wait to do it with kids. It’s a great way to get really comfortable with making chain stitches, and using bulky yarn makes it go really fast, too. (I worked my chain in a day and did the finishing the next day.)
If you try this project I’d love to hear about it! I’m submitting this project to the Adventures in Making DIY Challenge; you should join in!
