Hey Dearies! I’m officially on break from school and wanted to show you guys what I’ve been working on! As most of you know the Christmas season is here and as most of us crocheters start working on last-minute Christmas presents.
So, for the past year or so I’ve been making hand-made items, such as these, for my family, mainly my nieces and nephews. I’m always on the lookout for new things to try, but at the same time, I have to do what I know I can get done before Christmas.
I actually got the idea from the Grinch C2C crochet scarf that I found on Pinterest and alter the pattern to work out for my nephew.
Here’s what you will need:
- Medium Yarn (Size 4)
- I’m using, as always, Red Heart Brand.
- You don’t have to use just two colors, you can switch it up and use as many or just one color, whatever you like!
- 5.0 mm hook
- Sewing needle
If you don’t know how to do the C2C and find it easier to see what it looks like, here is a video from Heart Hook Home that I found very useful. Not to mention, if you like your C2C stitches to look nice and neat, her way works amazing and it’s the same way that I’ll be using for this pattern.
Row 1: Double crochet into the 3 chains from the hook and in the next 2 stitches.
Row 2: Chain 5. Repeat from row one. (This is how we increase.) Then flip your ‘square’, like you are going connect it. Slip stitch in the chain three, from the last square. Chain 2. Make 3 double crochets in that same space.
Repeat until you have 9 squares across. Once you do, after making your last square, slip stitch on the top of the square. (This is how you decrease). Chain 2 and make 3 double crochets in that chain 3 space.
Keep repeating until you have 140 squares. (In order to make it longer, add more squares if needed.) Then end it, as you did for the other side and then fasten off.
Tips for changing color:
- I worked with the same color for 5 squares, and then switched to another color.
- Try out different colors, have fun with it!
There you have it! A simple scarf that is quick and easy to make, especially if you don’t know what to make for anyone!
