All you need is a few minutes to complete this In A Jiffy Scarf. Yes, you read that correctly- minutes, not hours! This super quick crochet scarf pattern doesn't even require crochet hooks. Use loopy Swerve yarn to make a boa-style scarf by simply making a chain with your hands. This is a great craft idea for all ages. If you've been trying to get your kids involved with crochet, this might be the perfect pattern to start with.


SUPPLIES: RED HEART® Boutique Swerve™: 1 ball 9946 Fizzy OR 9337 Galaxy.

Size: Scarf Measures 3” wide x 45” long.

Gauge: Gauge is not important for this project.

NOTE: This scarf is a chain that is made by hand rather than with a crochet hook. Use the palm of your hand to measure each chain so that the chains will be consistent in size.


  • Unwind the ball of yarn and lay it flat on the floor or table. Take one end of the yarn and match up with the opposite end, doubling your yarn.
  • Using your hand and doubled yarn, make a slip knot leaving a 5” tail and adjust loop to width of your hand.
  • Pull yarn through the loop to form a chain.
  • Using the palm of your hand to adjust the size of chain.
  • Continue to pull yarn through each chain formed until you reach 45”. Tie off.
  • Knot each end three times and trim remaining yarn.

Wow how unique this this In A Jiffy Scarf! This one would be a good on for my older Grandchildren. I am wondering if it would be easier to just use 2 balls of this yarn to save from having it all over the floor? I'm going to give it a try and see just what I get. Thank you for sharing this hand crocheted scarf pattern.

I made my first Swerve scarf. Took me about 10 minutes. However, it's nowhere hear 45" in length even pulled tightly. I would either chain over 3 fingers or use 2 skeins tied together before folding in half.
