Chunky Granny Scarf Tutorial...

I was thinking...
It has been ages since I did a tutorial...
And with Autumn here and Winter getting closer in the Southern Hemisphere...

It was just the right time for a warm and chunky Granny Scarf...
So here it is!!!

Oh... almost forgot...Written in English terms
with american term in brackets...

Chunky Granny Scarf

Get your extra large Crochet Hook out (Size 7)
and some very chunky wool (20 ply)
and we shall start...

Chunky Granny Scarf

* Miss one ch.
1 tr(dc) in next ch...

The next part may be tricky for beginners so there are a few pictures...

and work another tr(dc) in next tr (dc) until you have 3 loops left on hook...

Lovely scarf! It's spring here, so I'll have to keep it on the back burner for a few months... it's all summer cottons here for a while :) Thanks for posting the pattern!

What a lovely tutorial again. Since I'm on the opposite side of the globe from you, I might use it for a delicate summer scarf with really thin cotton.... Love it anyhow!
And the cute cottage from your last post too! I'd like to make a whole village of those... Enjoy your weekend, X Floortje

I'm in Australia so this tutorial is perfect timing for me. I have been thinking about getting a scarf going without really knowing where to start. Thank-you for explaining everything so clearly, and for sharing your crafty goodness with us all! :)

This is the first scarf I've crocheted. I've made hats and purses using similar stitches so it went really fast. Well written pattern and photo tutorial. Thanks for sharing! Fun and fast patterns like these give me the confident to keep crocheting.
I used medium weight yarn because I can't buy chunky yarn in my town. I also used an H hook. Thanks from North Carolina, USA.
Here are photos of my attempt.

Approximately how many yards of yarn did you use?

Ruth said...

Love the scarf! I'm hooked on all types of Granny square, too! Today, in Texas, USA it will be 106 with a heat index over 108...needless to say I will not need this scarf for some time! Can't wait to make it anyway! Thanks again from Texas, USA!

I really appreciate how you added U.S. terms in parentheses...thank you! Also, I love how you added photos to each step. You're a very thoughtful pattern writer.

I can't wait to get started. Thanks again.

THANK YOU SOO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS!!!!! I'm 12 yrs old, and it is very easy and quick! Love the flower too! Thank you for all the pics too! (I like pics very easy) thank you!

Tiffany said...

Your tutorials are so easy to follow! Thank you so much! I LOVE this scarf, but I want to make it longer, in order to do so, do I need to increase by multiples of 3? Or...? Thank you!

designgrrl said...

Thanks for such a beautiful pattern! It comes together so easily and looks amazing!

pldrake said...

Nice design, but I'd like to be able to print a version with just the written directions (to save paper and printing costs).

I had some chunky yarn given to me and I made it into the 5th row before I ran out of yarn. Your step by step instructions were great. I am a beginner and it came out just like yours. I am not sure I like the chunky yarn as the scarf seems very heavy. I am going to try it with some lighter yarn because I love the pattern and it works up so easy.

Thank you for the time and effort it took to make this tutorial. Can't wait to try it again.

I'm needing something fun to do in the hospital in a couple of weeks. Knee replacement. I'll make three, for my three granddaughters.

Dianne Sparks said...

I am going to teach a beginning crochet class and I wondered if I could use your pattern to teach the class. I tried to email you, but the link to email did not work for me.
my email is beaudi414@yahoo.com
I would of course give full credit to you for your pattern and direct the students to your blog.
Thanks for your consideration.
