The Granny’s Grits scarf is named so because of the use of the granny stitch and the grit stitch in this pattern. I thought about calling it the Gritty Granny but decided that probably wasn’t a great name 🙃. It’s an extra-long scarf that totals 104 inches in length, so it’s sure to keep your neck warm in cold weather.
Don’t worry if you don’t know what these stitches are, in reality, it’s just a way to use double crochet, chains, and single crochet stitches. The only other stitch you need to know to make this scarf, in addition to the ones previously listed, is the half-double crochet stitch. This really is an easy scarf to stitch up.
