The Yarn

To make the Fabulously Fall fringe scarf, I used my favorite Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice, which is an 100% acrylic medium weight #4 yarn in the color Kelly Green.

If you’d prefer a different color of Vanna’s Choice, there are many color-way choices for everyone to pick from on their website or Amazon.

Vanna’s Choice

This yarn is made by Lion Brand, and is a Weight 4 – Medium yarn.

Vanna's Choice

Fiber: 100% Acrylic
Yardage: 156m / 171 yds
Hook: 5.5 mm (I-9)
Substitute: Lion Brand Heartland

Do you need to use a substitute yarn?

If you don’t have Vanna’s choice on hand, you could use any worsted (medium) weight yarn and get the same result as mine, such as Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Soft.

The Stitches & Techniques for This Scarf

Crochet Stitches: The whole scarf pattern consists of half double crochets (hdc) and chain stitches, which are both easy to learn. If you’d like a refresher course on these crochet stitches, I’ll link up my tutorials on both below.

These easy crochet stitches make crocheting this scarf simple and perfect for beginners.

Fringe: I added fringe to the ends of the scarf to add some interest. Use our fringe tutorial to learn how to add it to scarves or other crochet projects too.

Make The Scarf Without Fringe Too!

If you’d prefer to make this scarf without fringe, you can do that too. Just skip the fringe instructions, and you will have a simple scarf to wear that is fringe-less. Sometimes less is more.

    I absolutely love this pattern! It’s so pretty! I’ve tried this in DC, but HDC looks so much better. Thank you so much for sharing! I’m on my second scarf now!

  2. Just finished this scarf. Love it! HDC might be my favorite stitch and it was nice be able to have another variation.

  3. Just started this scarf yesterday, I just love this pattern. So easy to work up.

  4. Help! I have started the scarf twice now and a I am ending up with a curved scarf. Not sure what I am doing wrong…..

    1. Hi Linda,
      I would recommend going up a hook size for your foundation row. It sounds like you maybe are crocheting tightly on your initial chain which can cause a curve.


  5. Hi Krista,
    Found you from Pinterest… just the pattern I’m looking for a scarf for a friend (male) and going to make another for his son as a matching father and son scarf for the coming fall and winter .. thanks for sharing .. it’s so easy to follow and work up fast.. using Just my stripe from Lion Brand (Licorice and the boy will be wild blueberry)and it’s so far so good and the colors changing not girly at all haha Will share in instagram when I’m done !

  6. Helli! I’m Working in this scarf pattern. I may be over thinking it, but when I get to the end I have 2 stitches left. Am I to just HDC in the last stitch and then go back to the previous, skipped stitch, snd do a HDC (as was done for the whole row) or…just HDC in the final stitch, leaving the next to last stitch skipped??

    1. Hi Kathy,

      You should have one stitch left to hdc into and you should have 20 hdc’s total. How many do you have?


  7. I’m looking forward to making a scarf with this pattern. I’m curious, what is the gauge for this pattern?

    1. Thanks, Colleen,

      I didn’t measure the gauge for this unfortunately when I wrote this a few years ago.


  8. Does this stitch have a name? I have an alpha file for all stitches I’ve tried along with the instructions and my personal comments. Thanks!

    1. Hi,

      It does not that I am aware of. It was just a combo of stitches I put together. 🙂
