About this Pattern

If you want to learn how to crochet and you want to make a scarf as your first project, you’re in the right place. With this project, you’ll learn how to crochet a scarf from start to finish. In fact, this is the project we recommend all beginners start with!

With the beginner crochet scarf, you’ll learn the essential basics of crochet, the chain stitch, the single crochet stitch and the double crochet stitch. You’ll use these stitches for nearly every project you crochet from here on out.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to walk you through the entire process.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free with the option to download and print PLUS weekly office hours to get the pattern support you need.

B.Hooked Insider will launch later in 2020!
