I am crocheting a scarf. How do I stop the fringe from unraveling?
By connie from CA
Find a good stopping point and pull the end of the yarn through your final loop to secure it if you run out of yarn and need to start a new spool, or you are doing a multi-striped scarf. Thread the yarn through the stitches with a plastic needle to hide and protect it from unraveling. Do this at the very end of your project as well when the final length is achieved. Good luck.
I need a fun, quick, and easy crocheted (or knitted) scarf pattern for the holidays. I have tried every kind of pattern and cannot afford to buy new yarn. I have mostly worsted weight.
Go to www.Jo-Anns.com and look up a one skein crochet beret and scarf.It shows a small scarf but you can add to it and make it bigger.Let me know if you can't find it and I will e-mail the pattern to you.I have been working on these for the past few weeks.I have made several already.Very quick and inexpensive.Enjoy and have fun!
Why not just crochet a short chain (about 20 inches long) and do either single or double crochet on it for as long as you want the scarf to be? That'll end up with a nice, warm scarf and you won't have to buy any new yarn. You can put fringe on the ends if you want to, also. Happy Holidays and God bless you.
If you have different colors of knitting worsted you can make a wonderful zig-zag scarf. Just make a chain long enough to make one point in the zig-zag with a main color. Then single crochet for 5-10 rows then change colors, and keep changing colors eery 5-10 rows. To finish it, make a tassle and tie it to the point in the zig-zag. I have made these a lot, for myself and for gifts.

I do crochet for various local charities in my area. I'm supported by the ladies of my church who help by supplying the yarn needed to make these items. We have a place where they help teenage children that have had to be removed from their homes due to a poor environment.
This is a photo of the scarves I made for the boys and girls for Christmas, one for each child there. I also make baby blankets for the pregnancy crisis centers, and have plans to start making lapghans for the nursing homes. My desire is to try and share the Love of God through the talent he has given me.
