This beautiful woolly set lets you practice three basic stitches—double crochet, half double crochet and single crochet—in a simple repeating sampler pattern that will have you expert in no time.

Working back and forth, you’ll create a fabric with an interesting texture that looks much more complicated than it is. Bonus: It’s also reversible! Equally handsome in solid colors or variegated shades, this scarf can be worn any number of ways. And the simple little handwarmers will keep you toasty indoors or out!

TUTORIALS IN THIS PATTERN: • Combining stitches. • Mattress-stitch seaming.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, and keeping row edges straight. Need help with any of these techniques? See our Learn-To-Crochet Companion booklet.

Our First Projects patterns are intended for newer crocheters wanting to get a solid understanding of the basics. Each pattern is a “twosie” -- two projects in one, and includes more photo tutorials for the techniques particular to those projects. While simple, these projects create accessories that even advanced crocheters will want to wear. Beginners (and those who want to coach new crocheters) should refer to the Churchmouse Classroom Learn-To-Crochet Companion, an instructional booklet found at many Local Yarn Shops and online at churchmouseyarns.com.
