This scarf was designed with my beginner crochet students in mind as an exercise in working with different hook placement. By alternating working into both loops, just the front loop, and just the back loop of stitches, we not only get to practice the often mundane single crochet, but also learn to better understand the different parts of this basic stitch. The resulting fabric also helps introduce the possibilities of texture in crochet, which I find really exciting at such an early level of learning! Bonus? It’s reversible!

BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY:
-Single Crochet

SUGGESTED MATERIALS:
-Sport/DK Weight (3) Yarn like Patons Silk Bamboo in Almond or Color of Choice, 2 skeins
-H/5.0mm Crochet Hook (or one hook size larger that your yarn label suggests)
-Stitch Marker(s)
-Scissors
-Darning Needle

A NOTE ON GAUGE:
Gauge isn’t overly important in this project; simply choose a yarn and hook that gives you a fabric you like the look and feel of! For your reference, though, using the suggested materials, my unblocked scarf measured approximately 3.75” across. After blocking, it was only just over 3” wide and about 75” long – this yarn WILL stretch on you so block carefully! In hindsight, I probably would have preferred damp blocking this scarf instead of full wet blocking it.
