I am a Nebraska Fan. It comes down through the blood. You cannot be from Nebraska, even second generation, and not be a Nebraska fan, especially football. 

Yes, yes…we have seen much better years, but we always stay true and always hold out hope! We’ll get there again! 

I decided to crochet my own Nebraska Scarf, with the famous “N” logo. This type of project is my favorite. Very personal and very quick! Scarves are awesome, because I love to wear them, and since they are so narrow, they work up in crochet very quickly! 

If you aren’t a Nebraska fan….SMH…you can use the same technique to create a different logo. Just use graph paper and fill in boxes in the shape of the logo. Then you will use basically a tapestry crochet technique to follow the pattern.

This means you will do all single crochet, and you will use 2 (or more colors), while carrying the working yarn along while you are crocheting. Each “block” of your graph paper is one single crochet. 

When you get to a “filled” block (like for your logo), you change colors, then change back for each “empty” block. You do not cut your yarn, you just continue to work over the yarn, changing colors frequently, until you are done with the color-changing sections, then you can cut your yarn and have the tail weaved in (either by working over or weaving in after.) 

So for this pattern, I used all three Nebraska colors: red, white, and black. The main color is white and there are black and red stripes along the scarf. The logo is done in Nebraska red. GO BIG RED!

Below are the pattern and the video tutorial.


Let’s get on with HOW to actually make the Crochet Nebraska Cornhuskers Scarf!


Materials

First, let’s talk materials.

Yarn

I used “I Love This Yarn” medium weight acrylic yarn from Hobby Lobby.

1 skein white (color A), approx ¼ skein of each red (color B) and black (color C)

Hook

I use a size I/5.5 mm aluminum crochet hook.

Other

You’ll want something to cut your yarn (scissors, nail clippers, etc) and a tapestry needle to weave in ends.

You’ll also need either the written pattern (keep reading) or the chart version of the pattern found at the bottom of the page.

*Note: The chart version is a pictorial representation of where color changes happen in the pattern. If you prefer this versus the written format, go to the chart. To use the chart work from bottom right and go back and forth in rows.

Size and Gauge

Finished size: 77.5 by 5 inches

Gauge: 16 single crochets for 8 rows = 5″x3″ block using a size I/ 5.5 mm hook

Stitch Abbreviations Used

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

cc = Change colors

Pattern Notes

  • At the end of each row, I do not chain one and then turn, I just turn and go straight into my first sc. I find that I get a straighter edge that way. Feel free to chain one, then turn if that is what you prefer.
  • When changing colors during the single crochet stitch: yarn over, insert hook, pull up loop, change colors then pull a loop through both loops on hook.
