The Yarn You’ll Want to Use to Make This Beginner-Friendly Scarf

I used Loops & Threads® Country Loom™ Yarn from Michaels in shale. This was my first time using this bulky yarn and I have to say I really loved it.

It is super soft and the shale color is so beautiful with its mixture of gray, brown and tan tones. Take a look at the Country Loom yarn and let me know what you think.

You only need less than 2 skeins of this yarn and the color combinations are endless because of the great variety that Michaels stores carries. If you can’t find this yarn Lion Brand Homespun is a great alternative!

  1. With this work using just regular homespun yarn not the thick and quick

    1. Hi Angela, It would, but it would not turn out to be the same size since the regular homespun is not as chunky. I would suggest holding two skeins together at the same time to try to get a similar thickness.

      Happy Crocheting!


  2. Can I make this with a bulky yarn instead of super bulky?

  3. alex hall says:

    hi, just wondering if it uses exactly 208yards as the wool I’d like to use comes in skiens of 88yards. thanks!

    1. Hi Alex,

      It is a little less than 208 yards but I am not sure exactly how much since it has been awhile since I made this.


  4. If I want to make this bigger just add more chains to the foundation row? Is there a multiple number I need to use? Love the color!

    1. Hi Jill,

      You are correct! Just add any amount of chains. Hope this helps.


  5. Which hook size do you recommend, you mention 9mm N (a 9 mm hook is M, a 10 mm hook is N)?

    1. Hi Laura,
      9 mm can be marked M & N it all depends on the brand. Hope this helps.

  6. Krista, can this be started with a foundation double crochet? Also I would like to make it 16″ wide.

  7. Deb Poole says:

    Sooooo….your pattern says to “be careful not to twist the yarn” (chain). If I do, does it make a huge difference?? (I’m reluctant to pull out my first row, even though I did twist it 🙁 )
    Thanks for any advice you can provide!
    Lazy crocheter! 😉

    1. No it doesn’t matter I suppose. You will just have a twisted scarf 🙂 lol 🙂

      1. Deb Poole says:

        Thanks, Krista! I just continued…..I REALLY wanted to assess how it turned out. So fun – great pattern!! NOW I have a “mobius simple double crochet scarf”!! Hehehe!
        I’m definitely doing another – correctly this time! 😀
