Hey guys, welcome back to my channel!! so today I’m going to be showing you how to make this cute crocheted scarf. It takes about half hour to an hour for me to make and it’s really simple actually like, the hook I use is big and so is the yarn I use so it goes really quickly. Um, I’ve tried this in a few other colors too and I know it looks really cute and gray and like a mustard yellow looks really cute too so guys could kind of do whatever you want with this like, I don’t know I (personally) like the maroon too I think it’s just because maroon is probably one of my favorite colors but yeah so without further ado let’s get into the video Ok so first thing you’re going to want to do is make a slipknot To make a slip knot all you have to do is make a loop and then take the tail of the yarn and pull it partly through the loop to make another loop. now you can slide your slip knot onto your hook. The next thing you’re going to want to do is start to chain. To chain all you have to do is lay your working yarn over your crochet hook and pull the loop that’s on the crochet hook over it. each time you do this it counts as a stitch. You’re going to want to chain 90 stitches. this is going to determine how long your scarf is going to be, so you can totally adjust it to you. I found that 90 stiches is perfect for me. Once you’ve finished chaining connect both ends together. first lay out your chain flat and make sure that there aren’t any twists in it. Next stick your crochet hooks through the end loop and then pull the working yarn back through the hole and through the loop on your crochet hook. Next chain two stitches. Now you’re going to want to make a double crochet stitch. To make a double crochet stitch you’re going to want to take your working yarn and wrap it around your crochet hook then stick your hook through the hole in the chain closest to your existing stitch. and pull through the working yarn. You should now have three loops on your hook now lay your working yarn over your crochet hook and pull two loops over and off you crochet hook. Repeat the same step again. Let me show you that one more time so Stick your crochet hook through the hole pull through your working yarn, Now you’ll have three stitches and then loop through two and then loop through two and that’s really it. so now you’re going to want to do this all the way around the big loop you just made, until you come to the other end. Once you’ve reach the other end of the scarf you’re going to want to connect the stitches together. Before connecting make sure that nothing is twisted. Then stick your crochet hook through the stitch on the end and pull the working yarn through both loop Now chain two. now comes the tricky part, you’re going to want to follow the same exact steps as before using the double crochet stitches except you’re going to want to put your crochet hook through the back stitch instead of the front one. So just like before you’re going to want to wrap your working out around your hook and then slide it through the hole once you kind of figure out where the back stick is this becomes really simple. so now you have three loop and then two and then that’s your stitch. As you can see that’s kind of what it’s going to start to look like. So let’s do it again, Stick it through the hole pull through yarn, now you have three, two and two. You could always just decide to put the crochet hook through the top front stitch but then you wouldn’t get the braided ribbed look. I’m going to show you guys real quick what it would look like if you didn’t do the back stitch. so as you can see you wouldn’t get that braid look, sticking out from the scarf you just get a little single rib. Now you’re just going to want to do that all the way around. Once you finish connecting your row of double stitches you’re going to want to chain one. Now you’re going to make a single stick. So to make a single crochet all you’re going to do is take your hook with only one loop on it and stick it through the same hole as before then you’re going to want to pull through your working yarn now you should have to two loop on your crochet hook, put your working yarn over and pull through the two loops. The reason I chose to use a single stitch here was because I wanted a double rip effect. continue this all the way around the scarf and connect the end of the row together. Now crochet another row of double stitches. Halfway through this row is usually where I run out of yarn so just take your second ball of yarn and connect it together. I use scissors to trim away any excess yarn and then I try and hide it a little bit in the crochet stitch. After this you will need to make one more final row of double stitches. Once you’re finish connecting the end as you would normally, cut the end of the yarn with scissors. I usually use about one-and-a-half balls of yarn so you could totally save this for another scarf. To finish your scarf off pull the end of the yarn through the loop on your crochet hook. Now all that’s left to do is weave your end into your scarf to hide them.
