Super Chunky Textured Scarf

WHAT WILL I NEED?

You will need approximately 700g or 615yds of Super Chunky (US Super Bulky) #6 weight yarn. You can use any type of yarn you prefer, I have used 100% acrylic.

I have used Marriner Super Chunky yarn in Seagreen, which I had in my stash. Marriner yarn is only available to purchase in the UK and sadly, this shade is no longer available. King Cole Big Value Super Chunky would be a very similar alternative yarn.

You can achieve a similar yarn weight by using 3 strands of #4 Worsted weight yarn held together instead.

You will also need a 12mm hook, a large eyed yarn needle, and scissors. 

Gauge:
Exact gauge isn’t too important, so you can just use this as a guide. Working in the third loops of the hdc stitches and using a 12mm hook.
4″ (10cm) square = 10 hdc x 5 rows

FREE CROCHET SCARF PATTERN

This free crochet scarf pattern, uses the following US crochet stitches and terms:

(ch) Chain, (sc) Single Crochet, (hdc) Half Double Crochet, (dc) Double Crochet,

(FP-dc) Front Post Double crochet – yarn over, insert the hook in to the right of the previous row post and out to the left of the post, yarn over, and pull through a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.

(FP-trc) Front Post Treble crochet – yarn over twice, insert the hook in to the right of the previous row post and out to the left of the post, yarn over, and pull through a loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.

(BP-dc) Back Post Double crochet – yarn over, insert the hook into the back of your work going in to right of the previous row post and out to the left of the post, yarn over, and pull through a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.

We will also be working into the back bumps of chains and the third loops of hdc stitches.

Numbers shown in ( ) indicates the number of stitches you should have at the end of the row/round.

To help you read this pattern, the commas represent each stitch or the number of stitches after x. For example; {hdc x3, dc,} would mean hdc into next 3 sts, dc into the following st. Numbers in front of stitches indicate the number of stitches worked into the same stitch, eg. 5dc would mean work dc 5 times in the next stitch.

Super Chunky Scarf with Pockets:

The scarf is made using half double crochets throughout. To create the ribbed effect, we work into the third loops of the hdc stitches only.

The beginning ch1s are turning chains only and do not count as stitches.

Free Crochet Scarf Pattern Super ChunkyWe will work along the back bumps of our starting chain to create a neat bottom edge with visible stitch Vs at the base. This will help with adding our fringe later too.
If you prefer, you could work a chainless foundation of 30 hdc stitches in place of the first row,

Start by chaining 31, R1.

working from the 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each back bump, turn (30)

R2.

ch1, hdc x30 along the third loops only, turn (30) Ensure you work right up to the edge, the last third loop will be the sloping stitch at the edge.

R3.-R132.

Repeat R2. for 130 rows, or until the scarf comfortably reaches from your hip, around your neck once, and down to your hip again.

Crochet Cable Stitch Pockets:

We will be working in rows, beginning ch1s are turning chains and do not count as stitches. The cable section is worked in relief stitches, using back post and front post double and treble crochets. Each strand of the braid consists of 3 stitches, with 3 strands making up the braid.

Note the changes between the front post double and treble crochets. When crossing stitches, we will be working FPtrc (treble crochet) and straight stitches will be FP-dc (double crochet). When working along the wrong side, we will be working all BP-dc stitches (double crochet) across the cable section. At either side of the braid, we will have 3 hdc stitches. These will be worked into the normal top 2 stitches.

Make 2 pockets as follows:
Start by chaining 12 and work along the back bumps of the chain,
R1.

Working from the 2nd back bump from hook, hdc x3, 3dc x2, dc x3, hdc x3, turn (15) This row will fold over on itself. Don’t worry, it will straighten out as we work the cables.

We will be working front post double or treble crochets around the previous dc posts. The hdc sts are worked into the normal top 2 loops of the previous hdc sts.

R2.

ch1, hdc x3, skip the next 3 dc sts, FP-trc x3 (one around each of the next 3 dc posts), pull these 3 FP-trc sts you’ve just made forward and return to the first skipped dc,

Fasten off leaving an extra long tail for attaching your pocket (approximately long enough to go around the piece twice). Weave in your starting end.

Attach your pockets:

Use your yarn needle to sew the pockets onto your scarf. You want to attach both of your pockets on the same side of your scarf, so that they both face outwards while wearing. Line them up centrally, just above the 3rd ridges up from the ends. Use the long tail ends to sew a running stitch along the edge of the pockets, catching the scarf at the ridges on both sides.

Add a fringe: (optional)

You can make your fringe any length you like. Cut strands of yarn, 3 inches longer than double the length you want your finished length to be. My fringe is approximately 5” long, so I used strands measuring 13”. You will need 32 strands for each end of your scarf.

Free Crochet Scarf Pattern Super Chunky

Take 2 strands of yarn and fold them in half. Using a smaller crochet hook so you don’t over stretch your stitches, hook through the first stitch on one end of your scarf. Pull the folded section through to form a loop and then pull all 4 ends of your strands through the loop. Gently pull to tighten. Skip the next stitch along and repeat the fringe process in the next stitch.

Continue adding a 2 strand fringe to every other stitch along. You will finish with one stitch left at the end. Skip this last stitch, but add a fringe to the very edge of the scarf to finish.
Repeat for the other end.

Congratulations!Free Crochet Scarf Pattern Super Chunky

You have finished your Super Chunky Scarf with Cable Pockets! You now have a stylish accessory to keep you warm through Winter.

You can scale this scarf down for kids sizes too. For young children (up to 10yrs), I would suggest using Worsted weight yarn and a 7mm hook so it’s not too heavy. For older kids (10-16yrs), use 2 strands of Worsted weight yarn with a 10mm hook. Keep the hook size larger than recommended for the yarn weight to keep a ‘loose knit’ look. Follow the guideline of measuring from the hip, around the neck and down to the hip again for the appropriate length of scarf.
