Pattern Notes

This beginner crochet scarf is perfect for your first project! It works up in just a few hours so you get the gratification of a completed project pretty quick. Rather than work in short rows for this pattern, we’ll crochet this scarf lengthwise so we can avoid uneven or messy edges – a struggle that most beginner crocheters experience!
