My daughter is 11 and loves to create fun things, but she’s not really interested in sitting down with a crochet hook or knitting needles. This week I showed her how to make a loop chain scarf – no hook required! It literally took her less than 15 minutes from start to finish! So, it only made sense that she wanted to show her friend how to make one too! If you are looking for the easiest scarf pattern in the world, this Swerve loop chain scarf is for you!

How to Make a Swerve Loop Chain Scarf
Last week when I was in our local Mighty Dollar, I hit the jackpot on Red Heart Yarn. I ended up buying enough yarn to keep me busy for several months!
My daughter and I made the first loop chain scarf for her birthday. She was so excited when she realized that you didn’t need a hook or needles to create this scarf.
How to make the Chain Loop Scarf
- Pull the yarn out of the skein
- Find the middle of the yarn and make a loop knot
- Use your hand to pull a loop through your original loop
- Keep repeating till you have reached the end.
- Tie a knot on the end and weave the tail back up through the scarf
You can create your own unique color combinations by combining two different colors. Just tie a knot to connect the two colors and then use the new chain to start your scarf.
What Not to Do
Natalie’s friend discovered one thing NOT to do. Make sure you have your yarn spread out on the floor or couch beside you so you don’t end up finishing one strand before the other. The good thing about this project is that you can simply pull out the loops and start over. This is definitely a very forgiving project and perfect for tweens.
The girls were excited to create their own matching scarves and love knowing that they created them by themselves (with just a little supervision from me).
