Today’s pattern is the trendy “Chelsea” Crochet Scarf – a chunky super scarf for all occasions!

‘Tis that time of year when us makers begin to plan our holiday gifts, pouring through patterns and figuring out what we want to make for our loved ones. It can be a fun time as long as we plan well enough in advance!

I’m starting to get in to that mode as well. I don’t mind, it means more trips to peruse all the beautiful yarns and to find things to challenge myself. I haven’t forgotten to make a gift for myself, though, something for these cooler fall days. And something super simple and quick to make so I can spend more time on my gift-making efforts.

I love the look of the chunky crochet super scarf and, in this off-white color, it will go with any outfit and any jacket. I’ve already had many comments and compliments when I’ve worn it out these last few days.

While I kept this crochet scarf simple without border or fringe or pom-poms or tassels, I may end up adding fringe for a little added interest. That’s what makes a simple and easy pattern like this so great, though, is you can customize it however you like. You can easily make it wider or longer to suit your tastes. I have been thinking about making another in a deep wine color or maybe a burnt orange, I think the texture of the ribbing will show up beautifully in these colors.

    Hi – just discovered you site – and love the scarf. Is this UK or USA crochet terminology. Thanks heaps!

      Hello and thanks so much for your comment! The terminology is North American, so in UK terms the scarf is done in half treble in the back loops. It really is a very easy scarf to whip up and I hope you send a picture of your finished project! Thanks! ~ Terri Ann
