Adventurer Scarf: Free Crochet Scarf Pattern

When I designed this crochet pattern, my goal was to create a scarf that was cute & simple that I’d wear all the time! I like to think I succeeded because I wear this scarf all Fall/Winter and I’ve gotten so many compliments. I hope you love this free crochet scarf pattern as much as I loved making it for you!

  3. If you would like a thinner scarf, make your starting chain less stitches than stated.
  4. If you would like a thicker scarf, make your starting chain more stitches than stated.
  5. If you would like a thicker or thinner scarf, then keep in mind that the starting chain must be an even number of stitches.

Scarf Fringe

*You’ll be adding fringe to each crochet stitch along the bottom of each end of the scarf.

  • Cut 84 pieces of yarn that are each about 12 in. long
  • Take two pieces of fringe yarn and fold them in half.
  • Insert the crochet hook into the first stitch and hook the folded yarn loop.
  • Pull the loop through about a third of the way. Now open the loop (both pieces of yarn) and slip the ends of the yarn (all 4 ends) through the loop.
  • Gently pull it tight to create the first piece of fringe. Note – you may need to adjust the ends as you tighten to get them all even.
  • Continue adding two pieces of yarn to each stitch along each end of the scarf. Note – you will need a total of 42 pieces of yarn for each end of the scarf.
  • Once you’ve finished adding the fringe, trim the ends all the same length by laying the fringe flat and trimming with scissors.
  • Optional – to ensure the fringe is perfectly straight before you trim it, steam block it.

Weave in any ends you have or cut the yarn to match the length of the fringe, so the ends just blend in with the fringe.
