I'm not an expert in crocheting or knitting, so I was looking for something easy. I saw this crochet scarf on a facebook page and couldn't wait to make one. For those who don't know much about crocheting, a beginner like me will find this tutorial very easy. It only includes basic crochet stitches.
The color combination of my scarf isn't quite good, I used these colors to make the tutorial easy to understand.

*Please vote for me in the fiber arts contest if you like this crochet scarf, I'd really appreciate your vote :)

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make this scarf you'll need:

1) Yarns (of different colors),
2) Crochet hook (3.5 or 4.5),
3) Scissor,
4) Piece of cardboard or anything hard with (at east) 1 inch width and 4 inches length (You can increase the width and length if you want to).
<p>Nice! I'll try it!</p>
Excuse me I am stumped I was wanting to know how you connected the loops I really want to make this scarf HELP ME
<p>Hi. I'm making this one now, but i have a question. After making loops, I'm kinda puzzled on how to make a slip stitch. :(</p>
<p>I am making this one now but I have a question. After you make loops, did you cut the yarn already? </p>
<p>Sounds great. After you're done making the loops do a slip stitch to secure the loops and then cut the yarn, post a picture of the final product.</p>

<p>i find that when i make the chain stitch and the proceed to do the step creating hoops and looping them around the cardboard the chain stitch is too tight to get through and pull the loop back through...maybe a tip for step one is to make the chai stitch a little loose a d not so tight? i started again...LOL</p>
This is similar to broomstick lace or hairpin lace techniques. If you look into those methods you may get inspired to get other ideas for stitches with your method.
<p>Hey, I made a <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Broomstick-Crochet-Scarf/" rel="nofollow">broomstick crochet scarf</a>, check it out.</p>
Thanks! wow, love these patterns, definitely going to try :)
Hey there, quick question: when you measured the yarn for the 42 inches part, did you use a ruler or fabric measuring tape? -thanks
I used fabric measuring tape.
Wow! So easy and beautiful
Thanks so much!
In step 4 my laces turn out loose. : ( What do you think is wrong?
what is the width of the cardboard piece you used? though you can increase the width of that piece as you want but I think it's better not to cross 2 inches.
I used a ruler and it's 3 centimeters wide. (1.18 inches) <br>Could it be because of the yarn? Although I think it's almost as thick as yours. <br> <br>I'm really willing to knit this scarf and great tutorial, thanks. It'd be great if a figure out what is wrong with my loose laces..
thank you so much for such a gr8 tutorial :) &lt;3 <br>
wow! yours turned out out great! love the color combination :) thanks for sharing!
This is something I think my son could make for gifts for Christmas. I'm very excited about it, but I'd like a picture of that very last thing on this step: At the end use yarn and hook to make a slip stitch. <br> <br>I can't see how that part works to secure the braid without a picture. Will you add one please? <br> <br>Thanks for posting this!
Thanks! I'll try to post a picture, but see if you can follow this instruction for now- without doing a slip stitch there's another way- you can draw a piece (enough to tie a knot) of yarn through the last 4 loops and any stitch/chain near it and tie a knot,don't worry, the tassels will cover the knots!
I think we can get it done. This looks like so much fun :)
wow this is really so nice.. i loved this.. i have never done crocheting before.. but i am going to try this :)
Thanks! You'll enjoy this technique, it's fun!
Wow! This is soooooo cool!!!
Thank you! :D
wow...that is so nice! I never thought I can crochet...but your instructable makes it soooo easy...will save it for later! Thanks
Thank you! so did I, isn't this technique so easy for us beginners! do try and I'm sure you'll come up with more cool crochet ideas :)
is there a certain way to end each piece?
I did slip stitch to end, you can also draw a piece of yarn through the last 4 loops and any stitch near it and tie a knot.
This is gorgeous!
Thank you emily!
