Foundation Scarf Crochet Pattern | Beginner Friendly

Crochet Scarf Pattern

This scarf is a winter-fashion staple. It works up quickly, this one took less than 2 hours for me. It can be made in any color, or made to be wider/longer as there is no set rule for # of chains or rows. Only 2 stitches are used in the entire project and the rows repeat exactly the same. I’m sure you will love this piece so let’s dive right in to it.

You can continue with the pattern below, or you can download the ad-free, printable pattern here.

Foundation Scarf Crochet Pattern- Beginner Friendly Abbreviations/Stitches Used:

Stitch (st)

Chain (ch)

Half Double Crochet (hdc)

Treble Crochet (tr)

Materials Needed:

Worsted Weight #4 Yarn

4.5 mm Crochet Hook

Yarn Needle


*Note- scarf can be made as a regular scarf or as an infinity scarf. An infinity scarf can be made in 2 ways: 1. Join to first chain after last foundation chain. 2. Sew ends together after scarf is finished. I’m choosing to sew my ends together after my scarf is finished to complete my infinity scarf. If you choose to join ends of foundation chain, you just need to slip stich to join after each row.

Let’s Begin!

1.Ch 203 *(see notes)

2.Starting in in fourth ch from hook, make 1 tr in each st across <200 st>

3.Ch 1, starting in first st, make 1 hdc in each st across. <200 st>

4.Ch 3, starting in first st, make 1 tr in each st across. <200 st>

5. Repeat #3-4 2 more times.

6. Fasten off, if you need to join ends to make infinity scarf: lay ends right side facing each other, and whip stitch together. Weave in ends.
