Now that school is back in session and fall is here, it’s fun to make some accessories for the cooler weather – a crochet scarf certainly fits the bill!
While it seems to be the trend, fall usually means a much darker color palette for clothing. I understand this trend but it doesn’t mean you can’t add a pop of color to those darker, drab colors.
I was inspired to make something colorful when I came across the Caron Cakes yarn ‘Rainbow Sherbet’. Wow, will this exciting yarn help to brighten up an outfit!
When my daughter Noelle saw the Caron Cakes yarn she asked me to make her something that she could wear to school. I have fallen in love with the adorable triangle scarves I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest so I decided that would be my new project.
This triangle crochet scarf pattern is ridiculously easy to make and uses the simple granny square stitch. Speaking of simple shapes like the triangle, I would also like to recommend two fun classes…Crochet Anything with Rectangles and Crochet Anything with Hexagons.
It's so easy in fact, you’ll be able to whip it up in an hour or two. I would even go so far as saying it’s a beginner-friendly crochet pattern. It makes a perfect one-skein crochet project too!
It's also customizable for sizing – if you want a smaller crochet scarf (for a small child), then don't make so many rows and if you'd like it larger, crochet more rows.

Break yarn, weave in ends.
Make and attach the tassel to the center point of the triangle. If you don't know how to make a tassel, check out this great tutorial for making tassels. Otherwise I suggest using this great tassel maker.
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.
Sew your chosen button to the top corner tip of your scarf.
