Rainbow Crochet Scarf
Happy Monday Gnomies,
I think it's safe to say that winter is finally on the way out. I have little tulips peeking up through the soil in my yard and there are little buds everywhere on the verge of blossoming.
Today I am going to share a simple rainbow crochet scarf tutorial with you. This will probably be the last winter accessory tutorial for the year, because who wears woolly hats and scarves in April and May, right? Hopefully none of us. This scarf is so simple and only uses one kind of stitch, double crochet. You could make it with any kind of crochet stitch that you like. I happen to really like double crochet.
This is fun scarf to wear if you want to add a splash of color to brighten your wardrobe, if you want to show your support for LGBTQ or... just because.
Okay, let's get hooking!
- 7 skeins of yard, one for each color of the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. I used Red Heart Brand.
- Crochet hook size 5.5
Then general rule when making a scarf is that you want it to be as long as the person who will be wearing it is tall. This is how I measured the length of my scarf, but I feel like I could have made it a bit longer.
Take your first color and chain until you have the length you would like your scarf, then chain one, flip the row, skip one stitch and double crochet all the way back to the end.
If you don't know how to do double crochet, here is a nifty video that will help you.
After two rows of double crochet, cast off and add then next color. Double crochet two rows of each color until your rainbow is complete!
To add a fringe to the scarf, cut about 10 pieces of each color yarn about 12" long. Fold the yarn in half, pull the loop through one of the crochet holes on the end and pull the loose ends through, essentially creating a slip knot.
Trim the ends and your ready to wear your new rainbow crochet scarf.
