Holiday Color Yarn
I made another Holiday scarf last week and had this beautiful yarn leftover. Of course, I could keep it in my yarn stash, but it is so much better when it is crocheted into this festive ribbed scarf. The white is now all gone; however, I still have burgundy and paddy green left.
This ribbed scarf will brighten up the room when it is worn for the caroling throughout the month of December. My daughter, son-in-law, and I are part of a local community choir. In December, we give a number of free concerts at the nursing homes, churches, and other organizations that want live signing for their Holiday parties.
Ribbed Crochet Scarf
This scarf has a soft feel to it because of the ribbed stitch. it drapes nicely around the neck. The whole family will love wearing this scarf.
Adding Yarn Fringe
I have a video showing how to add fringe to a crochet pattern for a different pattern. However, note that the video shows adding more than one piece of yarn at a time. I added one piece of yarn at a time for this pattern.
Also, this fringe was shorter than what I used on this scarf today. The fringe used for the festive crochet ribbed scarf was 20 inches. As you can see in the photo below, the fringe is long.
If you are new to crochet, there are a few special stitches that you may not be familiar with. let me help you with that.
No Chain Double Crochet
Here is a video showing how to complete the no chain double crochet. Normally, when starting off a pattern, you would chain a certain number of stitches. then row two would be the double crochet. That can cause the beginning of the crochet project to look different than the ending row stitches. Therefore, I used this method so it would look the same on both sides of the scarf.
Back Loop Double Crochet
This means that rather than putting your crochet hook through both top loops for your stitch, you only put your hook through the back loop. The ribbed effect is created using this crochet stitch.

Handmade for the Holidays
If you are looking for a beautiful and unique gift to crochet for someone special, this would be a welcomed handmade scarf at my house.This is the perfect length to wrap around your neck a few times for warmth and still have a bit left over to tuck inside your coat.

5 inches wide X 65 inches long without the fringe. With the fringe, the scarf is approximately 86 inches long.
Adjusting the Scarf Size
When adjusting the width, just increase or decrease the number of rows. However, be conscious of the colors you are using for the rows. To adjust the length of the scarf, just add or reduce the number of no chain double crochet stitches.

I left the yarn pieces long when I was adding the new colors of yarn. Therefore, at the end, I tied the yarns together rather than weaving in. The yarn blends in with the fringe that you will be adding.
Adding the Fringe
The fringe used for the festive crochet ribbed scarf was 20 inches. I wrapped the yarn around my iPad case and cut one side. It was sturdy and easy to get the yarn around.
Add 4-5 pieces of yarn to each color section. I could have changed up the colors, but I decided to add the same color of fringe as the section I was adding it to.
Make sure that the yarn is snug.
