Woof and welcome. This is the finished scarf. If you don’t have the pattern you can downloaded it here. Pattern BEG001 Eyelet Scarf.
Before you start you will need to already know how to:
- hold the yarn and hook
- make chain stitches
- make single crochet stitches
- make double crochet stitches
If you don’t know how to hold the yarn and hook you can go to Beginner Guide – Basic skills you need to crochet
To learn to make the stitches you can download our BEGINNER STITCH GUIDE for links that will teach you .
I suggest you then practice making the stitches you need over and over on a sample square before you try making the project.
The materials you will need to make this scarf are:
- 1 x 6mm hook (size J in US)
- 3x 50g balls of 8ply yarn, each of different colors that go well together
- a wool or tapestry needle for sewing in ends
- a pair of scissors
- a needle threader (Optional)
For my scarf I originally chose an orange, pink and multi-colored ball of pink, orange and purple.
However this was a bit of a naughty -puppy- breaking-the- rules thing to do because the multi-colored yarn was thicker than the other two. It didn’t turn out so well (Eyelet Scarf Tutorial – 7. Troubleshooting) so I replaced the multi-colored thread with an 8ply light purple which looked much better.
Get your pattern downloaded and gather your skills, supplies and tools. Tomorrow we will take a good look at the pattern and learn how to understand it.
Until then…. woof!
