Free Crochet Pattern – Bulky Ribbed Scarf

 I use this pattern by Prague Loop over and over.  It is easy, mindless and quick, especially with a bulky yarn and a large hook.  Any yarn could be used and any size hook.  My favorite yarn to use with this pattern is our Snuggle Yarn which is available in many pretty colors, solid and handpainted.  This scarf is worked lengthwise, back and forth in rows, and gauge is not important.  Super easy one row scarf, very suitable for beginners.

Ribbed Crochet Scarf

The color of the Snuggle Yarn pictured above is called Seafoam.


US Size M/N – 9.0 mm


2 Skeins of Snuggle Yarn


6 inches wide, and 65 inches long
bulky ribbed scarf winkle

The color of this Snuggle Yarn is called Winkle.


Decide how long a scarf is good for you.  Chain an amount of st that is the length you want.  For a scarf that is 65″ long, you will want to chain 140 stitches.

Setup row: HDC (half double crochet) in each st.

Row 1: HDC into back loop of every HDC of previous row.

(Note for the beginner: Unlike single or double crochet, the HDC stitches appear to have an extra loop at the top.  You will be using the loop that is at the back of the stitch.  In a few rows, you will see that the two loops you have not been using form a “chain” along the length of the scarf.)

Repeat row 1 until the scarf is as wide as you want or you run out of yarn.

You might want to work one round of single crochet around the whole thing, so the edge looks neat, but it is not necessary.  Weave in ends.

Blocking is optional.

Enjoy your new scarf or give it to someone!


 The scarf above was made with the same pattern using one of the Hand Dyed Snuggle Yarns called Knot of Naturals.  A yarn color called A Group of Greens was used for the scarf below.  The hand dyed line comes in seven different colors!

Any yarn can be used with the pattern, and gauge is not important.  For this same pattern using our Paca Paints alpaca yarn, a dk weight yarn, see Free Crochet Pattern – Ribbed Alpaca Scarf.
