I have a confession.  We’re on that level, right?

I love scarfs, especially handmade crochet scarves. In fact, I’m a self-professed scarf fanatic. I have tons of them, all in different fabrics, colors, and patterns.

But you know what?  I didn’t have one like this, and I feel like one can never have too many scarves.

They’re the perfect accessory, and whenever I wear one, I know it means the ushering in of the fall season.

This crochet triangle scarf is so cozy, warm, and easy to make. The fringe gives it a little bit of a western vibe, which I love, and the colors can be customized to anything that you want.

The thick yarn size ensures that this crochet scarf pattern comes together quickly, so no excuses!  It’s craft season, and this is a great choice to satisfy your crafty vibes.


NOTE: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology



  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Two sizes of yarn –  1 skein (110 yds) of size 5 bulky yarn and 1 skein (110 yds) of size 4 Worsted Weight (Loops & Threads Charisma in Charcoal, and Red Heart Soft in Charcoal used in photos)
  • 1” or larger button
  • Darning Needle & Scissors


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • ch-sp = chain space

FINISHED SIZE:  19’’ tall x 26’’ wide (across the top)

GAUGE:  3 cl stitches = 2’’  3 rows = 2’’


Ch  5,  leaving a minimum 6” tail. Place a stitch marker in the 2nd chain.

ROW 1: Hdc in the 1st chain (5th from the hook).

ROW 2: Ch 3, turn, (hdc, ch 1) into the ch-sp below, hdc in the same chain as you put the stitch marker. Remove stitch marker.

ROW 3: Ch 3, turn, (hdc, ch 1) into the ch-sp below, continue across row, ending with a hdc in the 2nd ch from the ch 3 turning chain from the previous row.

ROW 4 – 24: Repeat row 3.

ROW 25: Ch 3, skip the 1st ch-sp and (hdc, ch 1) into the next ch-spaces across the row, ending with an hdc in the 2nd ch from the ch 3 turning chain from the previous row. Break yarn, weave in ends.

Add Fringe

Cut yarn (holding both strands of yarn weights together) in 13” strands. Fold the strands of yarn for one fringe in half, forming a loop at one end. Match the cut ends of the yarn on the other end. Take your hook and draw the loop through the stitch that you’re attaching the fringe to. Draw the loose ends of the yarn through the loop. This step creates the knot. Holding the top of the fringe in one hand, pull gently on the fringe ends with your other hand, tightening the knot until it’s secure. To finish, trim the ends of the fringe so that they’re even.

Add Button

Sew the button to the top corner tip,  opposite the side with the large gap between your hdc’s (your buttonhole).

The Elizabeth Stitch – Easy Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion - it's an easy stitch to crochet and once you get going, you'll be able to do it in your sleep.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Elizabeth Stitch

I’m really excited this week to share a new type of crochet blog post that I’ll be posting each month. I’ll be highlighting certain crochet stitches every month that I think are worth learning.

One of my favorite things about crocheting is learning basic crochet stitches and figuring out how I can implement them in my patterns. I’m always on the search for new but easy stitches, just like the Elizabeth stitch.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared some crochet projects with you that incorporate the Elizabeth stitch along with some detailed stitch pictures. The first project I shared was the Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves. Following that we did the Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern and finally the Elizabeth Stitch Boot Cuffs.

While there are many different crochet stitches I love, the Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion. From my research, I’ve also heard this referred to as the Mini Bean stitch (but I think the Elizabeth stitch sounds a little more refined and chic – befitting this gorgeous stitch). This is also one of the easy crochet stitches compared to others out there. Which is why I chose it for this crochet tutorial.

If you look in the crochet stitches tutorial, you’ll see that the stitch is sweet, elegant and has a gentle criss-cross look to it. I also love the slightly bumpy texture. More importantly, it’s a really fun and easy stitch to work up and once you get going, you’ll be able to do it in your sleep. This is the perfect crochet tutorial for beginners.

Elizabeth Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 2 + 4 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 4th chain from the hook and pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. *ch1, skip 1 ch, insert your hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. Rep from * until the end of the row, turn.

Row 2: ch 3, *insert your hook into first ch 1 space, pull up a loop, yarn over and back into same space, pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook, ch 1; repeat from * across the entire row with the last stitch being worked under the turning chain, turn.

Continue Row 2 until you have reached the desired length for your project.
