Cute Scarf for Winter Crochet patterns and Ideas
Big Brioche Scarf Crochet Pattern
When newbies ask me what to do for their first crochet project, I often recommend making a simple scarf. Since most scarves are shaped like long rectangles, they are a great way to practice basic crochet stitches without worrying about advanced shaping techniques.
In the list below, I’ve compiled my favorite free and easy crochet scarf patterns chosen for beginners. Each of these templates contains detailed instructions and many photos that will guide you through each step from start to finish. However, these templates aren’t just for beginners! Experienced and intermediate knitters will love these sewing patterns for quick giveaways and charitable projects.
Brioche knitting is a pretty complicated technique, but the things you can do with patterns are so wonderful that I’ve wanted to learn how to knit brioche for a long time. For the past few months, we’ve had weekly zoom mornings on Wednesdays. Jane Renton did a number of mini courses in these sessions covering all kinds of knitting techniques. One of them was basic brioche and you can find the video on our YouTube channel. (Yes, we now have a Cowgirlblues YouTube channel, woo hoo!). I started it and I couldn’t resist experimenting a bit with yarns and colors. So here is the Big Brioche Scarf knitting pattern.
The Big Brioche scarf is a very simple construction – no shaping, nothing fancy, it’s all about the basic brioche stitch. And it’s a great way to practice and familiarize yourself with one-color and two-color brioche. You can skip the brioche ends in one color and knit the whole thing in two colors. And of course you can play with many different color combinations. The Fluffy Mohair really lends itself to this pattern – a nice loose gauge makes it light and airy, and it’s a really generous length. You can easily adjust it to make it a little wider if you want by changing the number of cast on stitches.
