I fell in love with the multi-strand scarf look last year when I saw braided multi-strand scarves all over the net and in catalogues. I decided to venture into crochet to replicate the look and make it quickly.
I use about 1 4oz skein of worsted-weight cotton yarn that suggests a size H hook.
I'm not very good at crochet but these are a fun project for me and they always turn out nice. I will have another chain stitch-only scarf tutorial up soon!
Pick a skein of yarn and a crochet hook to match. You can use a larger hook, but it will make bigger holes in your chain.
Start with a slip knot around your hook. As with any crochet project, it's a good idea to leave at least a 3" tail of yarn.
Chain stitch for what feels like forever until you have a 5 or 6 foot long chain. If you want a longer scarf, just make a longer chain stitch.
End the chain and clip the yarn with scissors.
Start a new chain. Repeat step 3 until you have as many strands as you want. 10 will make a light scarf, 15 will make a medium scarf, and so on.
Gather up all of your strands. Using a hook on the wall (like from a coatrack), center each strand so they're even from one side to another.
Don't worry if some chains are longer than others--your scarf will have neat fringe this way.
Tie all of the strands on one side into a knot about 8 inches away from the bottom of the shortest strand. Repeat for the other side.
Tie any more knots you'd like and you're done!
