Learn how to crochet your own chunky tassel scarf. This scarf is thick, warm, and perfect for keeping you cozy this winter. This chunky scarf pattern also makes a beautiful gift that will be treasured for seasons to come.I am loving the trend of big blanket scarves, and I thought it would be fun to try out a chunky crocheted take on that oversized trend. I grabbed some of my favorite chunky yarn and went to work using a ribbed stitch that has a fun knit look. Of course, I couldn’t help but add a whole bunch of tassels.
If you haven’t tried a ribbed stitch before, don’t worry – this is a super easy one to work. Basically, you will just be working half double crochet stitches in the back loops only of each stitch. This creates a nice, stretchy fabric with a super cozy look.
Supplies needed to make this chunky scarf pattern:
- 540 yards of Size 6 Super Bulky Yarn (I used 6 balls of All Things You Acrylic and Wool Blend in Fleece White)
- Size M (9.00 mm) Crochet Hook
- Finishing Needle
This pattern uses American crochet terms and is free for personal use only.
Gauge: 8 hdc = 4 inches
The finished scarf will be about 76 inches long by 10 inches wide (excluding tassels).
Stitches and Abbreviations Used:
- Chain (ch)
- Stitch (st)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Row 1: Ch 155, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each remaining chain (154 sc) OR work 154 foundation single crochet stitches (learn how to work the foundation single crochet stitch here). (To adjust the length of your scarf, use any number of stitches equal to a multiple of 3 + 1.) Turn.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), hdc in next st and each remaining st (154 hdc). Turn.
Row 3: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), working in back loops only (see image below), hdc in next st and each remaining st. Turn.
Rows 4-19: Repeat Row 3. (To adjust the width of your scarf, decrease or increase the number of rows in this section.)
Row 20: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each remaining st (154 sc). Finish off. Weave in ends.
Now it is time to add those tassels!
- Start by cutting a length of yarn about two feet long.
- Fold the length in half.
- Pull that doubled length through one of the corner stitches of one of the long sides of the scarf using your crochet hook (I actually attached my tassels through the stitch below the edge stitch).
- Thread the tails of your yarn through the loop and pull to tighten.
- Continue attaching tassels to every third stitch.
- Trim tassels to the same length.
And that’s it! Your pretty chunky scarf pattern is now ready to wear or give to someone special.
