I don't know when it happened but I have become the go to person if you want to learn how to crochet. I think I did it in self defense. People were always asking me to make them something.its the old" teach a man to fish theory! This is going to be my new example piece. It's so easy and anyone can do it. You can also make it alternating rows of double crochet from back to front loops.

Thank you for this free pattern! Less really can be more and although I do enjoy to sometimes tackle a more complicated project this pattern is proof that the basics can be really lovely. My teenage daughter saw me looking at the pic and immediately asked me to make her one too so I let her choose her color from my yarn stash, then I gave her a crochet hook and she is now busy with her first ever crochet project, lol!

Jennifer, I hope you've been able to try this pattern since your post in December, I haven't tried this pattern yet but after looking at it looks super simple and you could customize it with stripes once you get good at changing colors. I practiced all the time when I first started by making scarves, I felt confident in making the flat and straight rows instead of worrying about curves in my patterns. Good luck!

I am a senior citizen (young one. LOL) and in a beginner crochet class at church. Just finished this scarf. It is great!!! Great for gifts. Always wanted to crochet but work and family never allowed for the time.
