The Blanket Scarf – Crochet Pattern
The Blanket Scarf is a beginner level crochet pattern that was created because I. Was. Cold.. I spend a lot of time covered in blankets in my house which makes crocheting difficult. I wanted something I could wrap around myself and still be able to talk around my house and use my hands. After the first row, the stitches repeat until the end! This is the perfect project for binge watching Netflix since there isn’t a lot of counting involved! This post may contain affiliate links.
6 or 7 Skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick. You can find it HERE.
Some of the colors have less yardage. You’ll need a total of about 600 yards for a nice big scarf!
US 11.50mm/P – This is my favorite hook! Find it here.
Begin the pattern and make a measurement after a couple rows. The width of your scarf should be about 20 inches across. If it’s larger or smaller, adjust your hook size. If you don’t feel like adjusting your hook size, that’s ok! This pattern can be as large or small as you want!
Ch – chain
St – Stitch
Sts – Stitches
Sc – Single crochet
Dc – Double crochet
About this pattern
I’m almost always freezing… I love to make a huge blanket fort, but that’s not always realistic. When I need to keep my hands busy with yarn, I need something to keep me toasty. That’s where the idea for this blanket scarf came from. You can move around the house without taking it off! You can also lay it at the end of your bed if you want to look fancy without making an entire blanket. This is a beginner level pattern that continuously repeats after the second row. The perfect project for binge watching! The blanket scarf pattern can also be modified to be a more traditional scarf (and use less yarn)!
Stay warm my friends!
Ch 38 (If you’d like to make a more traditional scarf, start with a shorter chain! Just be sure to chain an even number of stitches and stop when your chain is as wide as you’d like the scarf to be. For this option, you’ll use only 2 skeins.)
