What Yarn Should I Use for a Griddle Stitch Scarf?
I recommend using Coboo yarn is a lightweight 3 yarn that is 51% cotton and 49% rayon for this design. It is silky to work with and has beautiful drape, which means your scarf will look and feel wonderful!
Plus, this yarn is lightweight enough that it is great for Spring weather or climates that don’t get that cold. I
Fiber: 50% Cotton, 50% Rayon from Bamboo
Yardage: 232 yards
Substitute: Truboo Yarn by Lion Brand
You’re going to love Coboo yarn from Lion Brand!
Coboo comes in a variety of colors that are all gorgeous. For this scarf, I decided to use the color Pale Pink, but if you’d prefer a different color, take a look at the incredible colors that Lion Brand offers in this fiber.
How Big Will My Scarf Be?
The finished size of a griddle stitch scarf can vary, but this one is about 8 inches wide by 58 inches long. If you’d like to change the scarf size to lengthen it, you can crochet more than the recommended rows in the pattern.
To change the width of the scarf, you can use a starting chain in any multiple of 2. Keep in mind if you change the scarf from what is written below, you will more than likely need more yarn.
After you have picked your favorite color of yarn to use and looked over the griddle stitch then you are ready to get started! I hope you enjoy this free scarf pattern using the easy to learn griddle stitch!
Happy Scarf making!
