This scarf started out as something of an experiment making a crochet item consisting mostly of simple crochet chains. However, I liked the finished results so much that I decided to write it up.

The scarf is super easy to crochet, despite its unusual appearance. It is worked sideways and the main body is made up only of chains and single crochets. At the end of each row, I added a chain with a bobble, creating a fringe. This means that the entire scarf, fringe included, is crocheted as a single continuous piece.

I used a self-striping fingering weight yarn, which creates the “waterfall” look that I liked so much. However, any color and weight of yarn will work, as long as you use the appropriate hook size. The length and width of the scarf are also easy to adjust. Have fun experimenting!
