Pecci easy crochet scarf pattern for beginner

It really is.

This scarf uses the 2 most basic stitches in crochet.

Chain

Single crochet

Yep, thats it. I told you! Easiest scarf you might ever make. 
The squish is one part stitch pattern, 2 parts yarn and hook size. Choosing a yarn with a loose ply is going to offer maximum squish and then I also jumped above the recommended hook size for the yarn. Not so much that the stitches are loose, but enough that it gives the fluffy yarn plenty of room and doesn’t crush the fibers.

At the end of each post, I always write an invite for you to join in the Facebook group (now Meta? Honestly, is this what we’re calling it now? 🤷‍♀️ ). 
I know, I know TLDR (too long didn’t read), so I’m switching it up a bit today in the hopes that my friends who have not seen it before, see it now.

I would love to have you join in with the Revel group on facebook. It’s an easy way to quickly get answers to any questions you may have about a pattern. It’s also a drama-free place to share project pictures, get opinions on color options and whatnot, and  chit-chat with the rest of us.

About the yarn

If you are not new here, you likely know that I am a brand ambassador for King Cole yarns. This just means they gift me yarn to test out and then I give my honest opinion about it. This is important to know here, because I have enjoyed my King Cole yarns so much, I purposefully sought out and purchased the Chunky Tweed, which was one that I hadn’t had the opportunity to try yet.

I knew I wanted this scarf to be squishy and quick. So I went searching for a bulky weight.

Knowing that I have not been disappointed with any of my samples yarns, and then add in the affordability factor of King Cole Yarns, I filtered my search.

This tweed didn’t just call out my name ya’ll, it jumped and screamed and flailed its little yarny goodness at me. 😍
Just look at this fantastic deep gold. And the black & white flecks. Simply, wow.
The yarn is a fluffy 2ply; 72% premium acrylic 25% wool 3% viscose. Its the blend that makes it wonderful. Wool for a great feel in hand and the acrylic makes it affordable, especially when larger yardage is needed.

Pecci Crochet Scarf is written for 1 size. It is a “super scarf” to fit the average Teen│Adult. Slightly wider and longer than traditional. You can easily make it smaller or larger to accomodate the amount of yarn you are wanting to use or if you want to make this for a wee one in your life.

There are a few tips about sizing written within the pattern.

Getting started

Ya’ll know how I feel about making gauge swatches.
Make them.
However, this is a scarf and gauge is not crucial to your project. With that said, I still highly recommend you create a swatch with the yarn and hook you intend to use for your scarf to make sure you will be happy with the drape of the fabric it will create. This is especially important if you are using a differing yarn weight than suggested. 

I’ve built the gauge swatch into the pattern. But please keep in mind the scarf is quite wide and if you are unhappy with the way it is turning out, it will be a lot of frogging. Hint: just go ahead and make a small swatch 😘

Since we’re talking about it, grab this helpful worksheet I created for you to use on your next project, when making a gauge swatch will be a big deal. Save this worksheet to your digital notebook or print a few of these off if you’re a paper planner person. 
This will make the swatch process easier and more enjoyable. I created this FREE worksheet as an easy way to figure out gauge, it’s especially helpful if you’re new and still learning all the ways to be successful with your crochet. This worksheet organizes your stitching information and the fill-in-the-blanks makes the math stress free.
