If you like easy DIY projects, you are going to love this one. You can make a boa scarf within minutes! Yes, you read that right MINUTES! The best part about this project is, it is so simple almost anyone can do it. Spencer has actually made a few of these scarves, and I think it took him less than 5 minutes total to make. His latest scarf he made for my grand-daughter. She absolutely LOVES her Uncle Spencer, so as you can imagine she was thrilled to get a scarf handmade by him.

The recommended scarf length is 45″ long, but Spencer just used the entire skein of yarn for the scarf. It is a little long but is a perfect accessory for playing dress-up. I found the directions on the RED HEART site. Here is what he used:

RED HEART® Boutique Swerve™: 1 ball Cool Coral

GAUGE: Gauge is not important for this project.


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.

If you are need better directions take a look at this video and see just how fast this is to make!
