Oversized Scarf Crochet Pattern

As we near the end of the year, I'm reminded of the numerous blessings and difficult trials that the past 12 months have held.

The decision to sponsor a child was by far the best choice I made, since it constantly reminds me of how grateful I should be for everything. The good and the bad.
I also created the most amazing memories/inside jokes with my wonderful friends. They are honestly the loveliest and funniest people ever!
Even being able to care for my mum this year after she had surgery was such a blessing, since I was finally able to be there for her for a change. She's always been so selfless, touching the lives of everyone around her with love and kindness.

True, 2014 was one of the busiest years I've had to date, but I wouldn't have wanted it any other way! It might have been a bit crazy, but I enjoyed every single second since I was surrounded by the people I love!

So now that that's out of the way, I hope you enjoy my last blogpost of 2014. I look forward to creating more in the future!



What You'll Need
12.00mm Crochet Hook
925g Super Bulky Yarn {14ply} - I used Lincraft Luxe
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size 
Width - 10"
Length - 82"


~ Scarf ~

Taking your 12.00mm crochet hook and super bulky yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 20 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 18 chains. You should have 20 stitches now.
Row 2 - 100~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every stitch across.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


Fringe
Taking your super bulky yarn, cut 20 strands of yarn, making sure every strand is at least 22 inches long. Fold each strand in half/double. Then knot one folded strand into every stitch along the one end of the scarf.
Repeat the fringe on the other end of the scarf.



~ Cabled Pockets ~

Taking your yarn and 12.00mm crochet hook, start of by making a Slip Knot, and then crocheting 14 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every chain across. You should have 12 half double crochets now.
Row 2~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 2 stitches. Crochet 1 Front Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the last 3 stitches.
Row 3~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 2 stitches. Crochet 1 Back Post Double Crochet into the next 8 stitches. Then Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the last 3 stitches.
Row 4~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 2 stitches. Crochet 1 Cable Stitch into the next 8 stitches. {Note: I have an easy video tutorial below on how to crochet the cable stitch.} Then Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the last 3 stitches.


Row 5~ Repeat row 3.
Row 6~ Repeat row 2.
Row 7~ Repeat row 3.
Row 8~ Repeat row 4.
Row 9 - 12~ Repeat rows 5 - 8 once. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple sets of row 7 - 10, depending on your head's circumference.}
Row 13~ Repeat row 3.
Row 14~ Repeat row 2.
Row 15~ Repeat row 3.
Row 16~ Single Crochet all around the edge of your pocket. {Note: When you reach the corners, crochet 1 single crochet in that stitch. Chain 2, then crochet 1 single crochet into the same stitch again to create a nice corner.} Slip Stitch into the first single crochet.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
Repeat pocket pattern once more to make a pair.
Now taking your tapestry needle and yarn, sew one pocket onto the top of each end of the scarf.


Hope you all enjoyed this winter-y pattern!

    1. Hello,

      I crocheted this scarf in about 3 days, in my spare time. I'm sure you could crochet it a lot faster though, as I also had to write down the pattern as I went along :)

  2. I'm sure because it uses bulky yarn and a large hook it could be done in a weekend, but it does depend how quickly you crochet.

  4. I love this scarf pattern, it looks so cozy! I was wondering if you knew how many yards of yarn you used? I would love to make this scarf if I knew how much yarn I needed. Thank you!

  5. Would three skeins of Caron simply soft worked together be enough?

  8. Wow! I love this, but I am a beginner and I am super confused as to what to do after making 20 chains on the first row? I don't understand what you mean by "Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook." Are we starting with chain 2? Why are we skipping 2 chains for the half double crochet? Maybe I am misunderstanding what row one is, or maybe what a chain is?

    "Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 18 chains. You should have 20 stitches now."
    What? If we skipped to chain 4 on row one, then how are there 20 stitches? Do we skip 4 every time?
    Wouldn't there be only 5 stiches?

    Sorry about all of this, I'm just lost!
