Fresh Air Striped Scarf

Crocheted with lightweight yarn, this scarf strikes the perfect balance — providing warmth from the wool while remaining comfortably lightweight, making it an excellent choice for outdoor strolls in unpredictable spring weather. Designed with beginners in mind, it employs only single and double crochet stitches without any increases or decreases. Minimal finishing ensures a hassle-free creation, welcoming anyone — even those with limited crochet experience — to bring this scarf to life.

Time: 5-7 Hour Pattern

Skill Level: Easy

Finished Size: 6” x 60” + added length with the fringe


14 rows x 20 sts = 4” in seed stitch

Because of the nature of this pattern, one way to do a gauge swatch is by following the pattern until your scarf is about 6”, this way if your gauge is good, you can just continue on with the pattern

Weave in all ends

Fringe (optional)

  1. Cut 64 pieces of yarn around 10” (25 cm) in length
  2. Insert hook into stitch:
  3. Grab yarn with hook, make sure the hook is in the middle of the strand
  4. Pull yarn partway through
  5. Grab the 2 yarn tails with your hook and pull though
  6. Repeat all the way across both ends of the scarf (total 64 times)
  7. Cut fringe to be more even in length, how even you make it is totally up to you, I personally prefer it when they’re all close to the same length but not exactly
