Quick Granny Check Scarf

13 December 2012

You can make this simple little scarf in an hour with one skein of super bulky yarn. After the first row, all stitches are made in spaces, so the work goes quickly not having to find stitches if you have knobby yarn.

The example is made with Red Heart Light and Lofty, a super bulky yarn. The scarf can be made with lighter weight yarns and smaller crochet hooks. You can add beginning chains in multiples of 3 to make the scarf the width you like.

Size:
The example is 6” by 52”

Materials:
4.5 oz (127 g)/105 yds of super bulky yarn
Size N/P (10 mm) crochet hook

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
ch sp = chain space
dc = double crochet

Instructions:

Chain 11. The scarf can be made wider by adding 3 chains for each block wider.

Row 1: 3 dc in 5th chain from hook, (skip 2 ch, 3 dc in next chain) to end of chain.

Row 2: Ch 4, turn. In each sp between 3 dc groups, make 3 dc across row to end. 3 dc in ch-4 sp.

Repeat row 2 until scarf is desired length. Finish off and weave in end.

  7. I’ve been looking for something to do with this bulky yarn I have; I tried another project, but it was so hard to find the stitches that I bailed out. This was perfect for that yarn being that you crochet in the spaces. Made the scarf last night, and will be making another tonight. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I made this with regular worsted weight using I hook. Added six chains. Turned out gorgeous.

    • Thanks for your comment Pat. I have some beautiful Caron Simply Soft yarn (4)worsted I’m going to try after reading your comment! :)

  9. I made this last night as a quick b-day present for a friend and it came out beautiful. I ended up making it a keyhole scarf though because it wasn’t quite long enough to wrap around the neck in a comfortable manner using only one skein.
    Thanks for the pattern :)

  10. I don’t have the N/P 10 hook can I use a N 9 and it work out okay.
