The Vanilla Bean Crochet Scarf is a chunky, lofty, and easy to crochet scarf using a variation of the V stitch. Chunky yarn and a simple stitch pattern yield beautiful results. This scarf is a beautiful and relaxing project to stitch up. A perfect scarf or gifting, and suitable for beginner and seasoned crocheters alike!
Watch the full video tutorial on how to crochet the Vanilla Bean crochet scarf stitch by stitch:
- 6.0 mm (J) hook
- 240 yards of heavy worsted weight yarn (I used 2 Skeins of Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends)
- Tapestry Needle
- Measuring Tape
- Width-5 inches wide
- Length-as long as you like
- ch: Chain
- dc: Double Crochet
Row 1: In the 5th chain from the hook, work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain. Skip two chains and work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain, skip the next two chains and work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain, then one double crochet in the last chain.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each of the chain 2 spaces from the previous row (center of each V). Work a double crochet in the turning chain space.
Repeat row 2 until the scarf is the desired length. A good rule of thumb I like to follow is going from hip to hip. Start the scarf at one hip, then crochet until it goes up, around the neck, and back down past the opposite hip. This allows it to drape nicely and wrap once or twice around your neck!
Weave in the ends and you’re all finished! Make one for yourself and one for a friend too!
