Granny Stripes Scarf {Free Crochet Pattern}

I really enjoy working with the granny stripe stitch. It is easy to catch on to, and is a very versatile stitch. I decided to use it to make this scarf, for a couple of reasons. First, I love the color effect when alternating color rows. Second, it is a warm stitch, and perfect for a scarf.
This granny stripes scarf has an extra bonus. Because I used a larger (size K) crochet hook, it works up pretty quickly. This is nice if you are in quick need of a warm accessory to your new outfit, or plan on making a few as gifts or for charity.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Size K Crochet Hook
2 (or more) colors of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in  Hot Red (color A) and
 Blue Suede (color B).

   Special Notes:
*You will alternate colors for each row. When changing colors, leave a long end to be blended in with the fringe.

Cut equal sized pieces of yarn, approximately 10 inches long. Working with two strands at a time, fold the strands in half and pull the loop through an end stitch of the scarf, then pull the ends of the fringe tightly through the loop. Repeat as desired. Trim fringe so that it is even.

Happy Crocheting!
