Extremely Fast & Easy Marble Yarn Crochet Scarves – Handmade Gift Idea

I made those scarves for all three of us using beautiful James C. Brett marble yarn.

For myself I made greenish one in standard marble yarn and for my girls in softer baby marbles with different shades of pink and purple.

The scarves are very easy to make, don’t require much crocheting skills and should be ready in no time.

Optionally tie the frills to both ends of the scarf, double pieces of yearn folded in half and threaded through every stitch will be enough.

Your thoughts…

  1. Great idea! As a present it is not very expensive but full of soul and attentiveness. Thanks

  2. Geri Eller says:

    That is a great scarf for men, women or children!

  3. Valeria, that is the thought that matters… and with those scarves you can make them also very personal by choosing yarn that will match the person… the possibilities are endless. We went for marble yarn because it looks sooo pretty and it does not need any special stitches to look great.

    Geri, very true, I need to make one for my husband as well before the end of summer.

  4. Sue Fisher says:

    I love your pattern and am going to try to make one. For the yarn you say that you used James Brett marble yarn which I understood to be chunky although you have called it DK. What did you use in the pattern?

  5. Sue, it is not a chunky yarn, it is DK. James Brett has chunky marble and regular DK one as well.

  6. Peggy Schott says:

    Love this! Looks pretty easy and I am going to try to make it soon. Thanks for the pattern.

  7. Hi! I want to use this, but as a baby blanket – basically what you did but much larger. As the colour changes, do you think I am fine to keep adding a new ball of yarn on to the last? The colours in your images don’t look blocky.
