This easy scarf pattern uses a 1 row repeat row and works up super quick with this super bulky yarn from Lion Brand.

About this Scarf Pattern

This scarf is made with simple stitches like single crochet stitches and double crochet stitches.  It uses a special stitch called the Lemon Peel Stitch.

The yarn I used is a super bulky yarn from Lion Brand called Wool Ease Thick & Quick.  I used the color Hudson Bay and it is such a pretty color!

I used 3.5 skeins to make my scarf with, but for reference, I am only 5′ tall.  If you are taller or want a longer scarf, you may need an extra skein or 2 of yarn.  

My finished scarf came out to 68” in length and is perfect for me, but like I said, I’m a little on the shorter side.

But, that is one thing about this pattern that makes it so easy, is that you can simply add or subtract as many rows as you would like to get the perfect length for you!

Beginner Friendly Pattern

When you really think about it, a scarf is just a rectangle, and how easy is that to crochet?  If you are more of a beginner crocheter, you may find that your biggest issue is making a straight edge along the side of your work.  

You just want to pay close attention to the very first stitch and very last stitch of the row and make sure that you are working the stitches into the proper places.  If you make sure to work into the very first stitch and the very last stitch and you should not have a problem crocheting your very own scarf.

What Yarn Works Best for a Crochet Scarf?

I think that this question all comes down to preference.  Whether you are wanting to make a super thick and warm scarf or a lighter weight and more delicate scarf / wrap.

For this particular pattern, I used a super bulky yarn to make a warm and cozy scarf.  You can use basically any weight of yarn with the corresponding size hook to crochet a scarf with, the results will just vary from the size to texture.
