The Stitches

To be able to crochet this scarf you will need to know how to do one basic stitch which is the half double crochet (hdc)! You will also need to know how to half double crochet in the back loop (hdc bl) which is an easy technique to learn as well as how to half double crochet two stitches together. (hdc2tog)! Take a look at the stitch explanations below for some extra help if needed.

Crochet Stitches For a Chunky Scarf

Half Double Crochet (hdc):

  • Yo (yarn over) insert hook from front to back of the designated stitch, yo the hook and pick up a loop. 
  • Yo the hook and pull back through all three loops on the hook.

Half Double Crochet 2 Together (hdc2tog):

The Yarn

To crochet a chunky yarn scarf just like mine you will want to get a hold of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from Lion Brand Yarn. It is a super bulky 6 weight yarn that is 20% wool & 80% acrylic.

This yarn is great for projects that you want to get done quickly because of how bulky the yarn is. If you are looking for a scarf that will only take a few days to complete this scarf pattern may be the one!

I used the colorway Fisherman for this scarf because it is a neutral color and so it would look good with any outfit it was put with.

If you’d like to make this scarf in a different yarn color, there are over 40 different colors you can pick from, which means your scarf will truly be unique to you.

How Many Yards of Yarn Do I Need to Crochet a Scarf?

To make the scarf as written you’ll need about 3 skeins and less than 250 yards (229 meters) of super bulky #6 weight yarn. If you change yarn brands, the number of skeins will vary because each yarn has a different amount of yarn in each skein.

Substitute Yarn: If you’d like to use a yarn that doesn’t contain wool I recommend using Hometown Yarn which is also from Lion Brand. It is 100% acrylic, a super bulky #6 weight and works up similar to WET&Q.
