Key Hole Scarf, a great beginner’s Crochet Pattern…

keyhole-title2-2I receive lots of requests for easy to make crochet patterns from less experienced folk who would like to make something other than granny squares… Patterns that are easy to read & achievable in a shortish time … Items that can be made for themselves or gifts for family & friends…

This Crochet Key Hole Scarf is one such pattern that I hope will be useful for both beginners & the more experienced alike… the finished item (approx 89cm (35″) long x 15cm (6″) wide. depending on yarn & hook used) is a short scarf that is bulky enough to keep out the chills but compact enough to pop into your jacket pocket when not needed…

As always, I’ve given yarn & hook requirements but feel free to use yarns & hooks of choice… make it your project & experiment with 8, 10 or 12 ply yarn & appropriate hooks… don’t be afraid to work 2 yarns together using a large hook (6.50 (K), 8.00 (L), 9.00 (M), 10.00 (N))… The edging I’ve given is a shell with picot, but here again, there’s no reason why you can’t change this to a fringe or even leave it plain…

The pattern includes:

  • written pattern in both UK & US terminology
  • clear stitch instruction
  • pattern diagram (chart)

So, there you go… An easy pattern for beginners & a quickie for the more experienced… Enjoy!
