Handmade Gift Series: Super Cozy Crochet Scarf

This extra long scarf is quick to make up and is bound to keep you warm and snug.

This year I have committed myself to making one handmade gift a month and March sees me making this extra long and super snug crochet scarf that is going to be difficult to part with! I used the Mile Long Scarf pattern available for purchase from Sheila Likes to Knit.

This pattern requires a crochet hook size P (11.5mm) and 6 skeins of Lion Brand super bulky weight yarn. Though this scarf is one of the longest I have ever had the pleasure to crochet, the large hook and thick yarn means that it is extremely quick to make. I chose a deep, rich red color for my scarf which I really love. Since this scarf is worn close to the skin at your neck and chin, I recommend using yarn that is extra soft like the yarn I used.

Following the pattern directions this scarf is crocheted across the width, rather than the length, using a simple single crochet stitch. This is the perfect pattern for a beginner crocheter who want to make something easy but with a BIG impact.

If you are likely to be crocheting on a regular basis, I recommend purchasing a large plastic needle that will help you weave in the ends of your yarn as you change skeins.

Finally, if you make one of these intending on giving it as a gift, I recommend also making a second. This scarf is a winner and you’ll want one for yourself too!
