Super Quick Skinny Scarf

This is probably one of the quickest stash busters ever!  It’s great for a beginner (even if you’ve never picked up a crochet hook), but anyone can whip these out in a number of combinations to make them your own creation.

I used a size “P” hook and held 4 strands of various fashion yarns together, but you can use more strands, and even a larger hook, to give it a little more thickness.

Begin with approx. 10″ strands before you make your slip knot. 
Chain enough times to make up approx. 45″. (I did some as long as 56″ & 60″) Fasten off, leaving approx. 10″ tail.

Done!  It’s ready to wear, give, sell, etc.  No ends to tie in. And now your stash is a little, tiny bit, smaller.  You’re probably thinking that was way too easy :). 

This is black & gold and is approx. 64″
Various browns & off white.  Approx. 80″.
This is just fun fur (2strands black, 2 strands red/black). It’s approx. 84″.
This one is on the long side, but not so long it gets in the way.

Happy Crocheting!


  1. >Wow! Those are super cute and super easy. I might have to whip up one for myself. :) Thanks!

  2. >What a super cute idea!!! I can't wait to make some of them… Will be fun using up my stash on some of these…. Just need to find my P hook. LOL!

  3. >Cute. I seen this idea yesterday when I went lookin for ideas on how to use up all my scrap yarn. I have a big white plastic hook that I use, I dont know the size, it doesnt say and I got it from a yardsale?

  4. >Great idea – I need to stash build, not bust, but it's a great excuse to buy some fun yarn to make a few simple presents for friends … oh, and one or two for me as well!

  5. >Very pretty. Will be great as spring weather approaches.

  6. >Thank you for such a great idea! My oldest daughter has requested one in her school colors for Spirit Fridays. :)

  7. >Thanks ladies. I have an idea for another version of this. Just need the time to make it. Look for it soon.
