Design by Sarah Ruane from Ned & Mimi.
This rainbow crochet scarf is a perfect accessory to inject a little bit of color into the darker days of winter. The scarf only uses one stitch the so it is an absolutely perfect crochet pattern for beginners.
And while I decided to go for a rainbow color palette (I have a little girl who loves pretty much anything rainbow-related!) the stripe sequence is completely customizable so you can crochet a scarf to suit any age or taste.
The changing blocks of color help keep your interest even though the pattern itself consists of only one-row repeat. I don’t know about you, but I really find that changing colors regularly gives me small little milestones to aim for, and before I know it I am finished!
