Simple Crochet Scarf Pattern
I was taught from books to start all my crochet projects with a foundation chain. You'll need a chain between a 160 and 260 chains long, depending on the length of scarf you're after.

If you've never tried it, give it a go (link to YouTube) If you make your first row this way, go to **
Once you have the desired length of chain, make a treble crochet stitch in the 5th chain from the end. You've now got two 'posts' on your foundation chain. In the next chain, make another treble crochet stitch and repeat to the end of the chain. You've just finished the first row.
