HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

- Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
You will need to use the foundation single crochet stitch & the quick bubblepattern.
QUICK BUBBLEPATTERN (QB):
*in the next st, draw up a loop, yo, draw up a loop from same stitch, yo, pull through all* repeat. Start rows with a Quick Bubblepattern Stitch directly in the last stitch from prev row.
FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC):
Step 1: Ch 2 st.
Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook. Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches.
*2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
Front Post & Back Post Double Crochet:
FPdc written description:
Yo, insert your hook from front to back between the previous stitch & the stitch you’re working, & bring it to the front again between the stitch you’re working & the next stitch, yo & pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on the hook, yarn over & pull through 2 of the 3 loops, yarn over and pull through the 2 last loops.
BPdc written description:
Yo, insert your hook from back to front between the previous stitch & the stitch you’re working, & bring it to the back again between the stitch you’re working & the next stitch, yo & pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on the hook, yo & pull through 2 of the 3 loops, yarn over and pull through the 2 last loops.
TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED:
CHANGING COLOR WITH DIFFERENT COLOR ON DIFFERENT ROWS:
When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row with one color, with the color you where working with.
Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.
Repeat this for every row you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
No chains to start QB rows, just turn make QB st directly in last st from prev row.
With hook size 10 mm, make 26 st using the foundation single crochet technique.
Following instructions are all made with hook size 8 mm:
Row 1-65 (with color 1): QB 26 st, turn (=26 st).
Row 66-102 (with color 2): Ch 2 (counts as 1st st), *FPdc 1, BPdc 1* repeat from *to* until end of row, turn (=26 st).
Row 103-167 (with color 1): QB 26 st, turn (=26 st).
Fasten off & cut yarn.
Fasten threads & weave in ends.
For this scarf you can add fringe on each end if you’d like.
