How to Crochet a Scarf With Bobbles

This scarf is made using only two crochet stitches! If you can single crochet and do a bobble stitch, which I’ll explain below, then you can make this design. I have a written tutorial that you can reference on both stitches, which I will explain below.

The Stitches

Bobble Stitch (BO):

  1. *Yarn over (YO) the hook and pick up a loop in the stitch
  2. YO the hook and pull it back through two loops
  3. Repeat from * 5 times in the same stitch
  4. To finish, YO and pull back through all six loops on the hook.

The Yarn

This scarf is made with a unique new yarn called Crayola™ Cake Yarn from Lion Brand! It is a yarn that changes color flawlessly – think ombre’ and has some pretty amazing color palettes to choose from when deciding on a color scheme!

I decided to use the colorway Timberwolf, which is a lovely blend of muted tones such as gray, cream, and white. My favorites!

The whole scarf takes a little less than two cakes of this yarn, so you will even have a little left over to make something small after you’re done.

    1. Hi Angie,
      I forgot a sc when I was typing up the pattern. 🙂 Thanks for finding it. The pattern should be good now. If you find any more mistakes please let me know.


  1. Hi Krista I love this pattern but I’m confused about step for that doesn’t seem to be enough stitches before the first bobble can you help me

    1. Good morning Angie,

      For row 2 you start with two single crochets before the first bobble and end with a bobble and 2 single crochets. Was this the step you mean? Thanks!
