Are you looking for a quick and easy crochet project to work on? Look no further! In this easy half-double crochet scarf pattern, we will be making a cozy crochet scarf using the half-double crochet back loop only stitch throughout most of the pattern. This stitch is an easy-to-do variation of the traditional half-double crochet, and it creates a unique ribbed texture in the fabric.
The first row of the pattern is a regular half double crochet stitch, and then all the remaining rows are just the back loop half double crochet repeating until you finish the scarf.
Whether you are a beginner crocheter or a seasoned pro, this scarf is a great project for anyone looking for an easy project that is great for when you are watching your favorite show. So grab your yarn and hook, and let’s get started!

The initial chain can be any number if you would like to change the length of the scarf.
To change the width of the scarf, adjust the number of times you repeat row 2.
To create the matching sides of the scarf, Row 1 should be worked in the back bump of the foundation chain.
The chain at the start of rows does not count as a stitch.
