Simple Textured Crochet Scarf

This scarf is the result of experimenting with different combinations of stitches to create a cozy and warm scarf that is squishy and full of texture. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn in Taupe and Barley. I started with full skeins and used approximately 1/3 of the Barley and less than 1/3 of the Taupe to make the scarf.

Finished Size:

6″ wide / 72 in” long, optional tassels are 6.5″ long


4″ = 14 hdc stitches

4″ = 9 rows hdc

Materials Needed:

500-700 yds of worsted #4 weight yarn in 2 colors (250-350 yds for each color)

5.5mm crochet hook

Yarn needle


Abbreviations (US Terms):

Additional Notes:

This pattern uses the half double crochet in the third loop only. If you are not familiar with this stitch, this video provides a really good explanation.
