How to Crochet a Ruffled Scarf


Scarves are always a fashion hit, regardless of the time of year. Wear a scarf to dress up an outfit, make a statement or keep your neck warm during the winter. Silk scarves are great for adding color to an outfit, making an out-of-date suit more modern or dressing up a little black dress for an evening date. Crocheted scarves are popular during colder months to help keep warm, and add pizzazz to a simple sweater or turtleneck shirt -- especially when you add ruffles to the design.

Things You'll Need

  • Crochet hook H or K (5.0 millimeters to 6.5 millimeters)
  • Yarn needle
  • Medium-weight yarn, two to three balls -- or 300 yards of the primary color
  • Medium-weight yarn, one ball -- in a contrasting color (optional)
  • Chain 203 with the main color for row 1. Treble crochet in the third chain from your hook, and then chain across each row.

  • Chain three in rows 2 to 4, then turn. Two treble crochet in each treble across.

  • Introduce contrasting color in row 5, if desired. Chain 1, then turn. Single crochet through each treble crochet across, and finish.

Tips & Warnings

  • For a thinner scarf, you can make fewer rows than the pattern indicates. To shorten the length, make fewer chains to start row 1.
  • If you pull your yarn too tight as you work, it will bunch up in the scarf -- causing it not to curl and ruffle properly.
