How many scarves do you think you could crochet in one day?

Tags: , ,

  • Nicola H.

    One or less – I’m not very fast, but I still enjoy crochet. Thank you for the free pattern.

  • It’s amazing how warm these lacy scarves can be. I’d be lucky to finish one scarf a day I’m so busy.

  • I’d likely take two days (or actually two night shifts) to make just one scarf. Being a newbie I’d likely end up frogging at least part of it at least once!

  • Well, once I did three scarves in one day when I was pushed for Christmas presents!

  • I’m a mother of two very busy busy boys. 3 and 1 years old. If I could crochet one scarf in a day, I’d jump for joy. 🙂

  • Harlee W.

    I’m a slow crocheter, so I could probably only make one scarf in a day. This looks pretty quick though. 🙂

  • Angelique G.

    I think I could crochet 3 or 4 scarfs in one day, depending on the type of scarf it is

  • None, or rather some small fraction of one. I’m a slow crocheter and I have three young kids so I’m lucky to squeeze 15 min at bedtime.

  • Brenda S.

    The most scarves I have ever crocheted in 1 day was 6. I don’t know if I could do more or not.

  • Shirley E.

    So far I’ve crocheted half of a scarf today. But them, I do have a life outside of crochet projects. The colors in this are pretty nice.

  • O.K., I’m slow, so I’d be lucky if I could finish one scarf per day. Thank goodness this one doesn’t require a gauge! Gauging slows me down considerably. (Hey, I’m learning here.)

  • Jeanette D.

    I am working on this scarf but I think is there errors in round 3 and round 4.

    • Ilc E.

      Be sure to follow the V-Stitch pattern instructions carefully. Let us know if you are still having troubles. ~Chris

  • Diane C.

    Is this pattern worked f

    rom right to left or is it worked in a continues round?

  • I agree with Jo. If I wasn’t an experienced crocheter, I wouldn’t know what this pattern is all about… Definetly not for a new beginners.

  • Although I love the scarf and the beautiful stitches, the pattern’s SKILL LEVEL is indicated “FOR BEGINNERS”. Due to some of the required “SPECIAL STITCHES”, I feel this pattern should be re-labeled under SKILL LEVEL as “INTERMEDIATE”. Some of the stitches call to do some of the “Intermediate” stitches or “experienced” crochet stitches which, for me “a Skill Level of EASY” I think some stitches are difficult. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

    The directions between Rnd2 and Rnd3 doesn’t make sense. Rnd 3 references a ch-3 space that is not there.

    • The Ch3 space is part of creating the V stitch in rnd 2. See Stitch notes for V stitch instructions 🙂

    • It means a 2 treble cluster – See special stitches: 2trcl: * [yo] twice and draw up a lp in st specified, [yo and draw through 2 lps] twice; rep from * once more; yo and draw through all 3 lps on hk.

  • Hi, Can you tell us the multiple of stitches to use if we don’t want to make it as long as the 200 stitches..having trouble calculating the basic stitch set. Thanks.

  • Barbara R.

    Though I’m now retired and enjoying a very relaxed lifestyle, my sister loved this scarf and has requested more! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • thank you so much for sharing your site for free, i truly enjoyed making the scarf it turned out just beautiful so again thanks a lot for sharing!
