Extra Long Chunky Crochet Scarf – Free Pattern

Hello everyone, this is the time of year when hats, gloves and scarves are an absolute must, so today I want to share with you my pattern for an extra long chunky crochet scarf. I’m a big fan of scarves, but find the ones you get in shops can often be a bit short for my personal taste. When I came to design this scarf for myself, I made sure there was plenty of length in it.

The pattern is worked along the full length of the scarf. Some of the stitches used may look a bit complicated to start with, but they’re easy to pick up, and the scarf works up really quickly.

Aran weight yarn 6 x 100g

6mm hook

All crochet terms are in the US style

Sc = single crochet
Hdc = half double crochet
Fpdc = front post double crochet

Bpdc = back post double crochet

Hdc cluster – *yarn over, insert hook into ch 1 space, yarn over and pull through* 3 times, yarn over and pull through all 7 loops on the hook.

1) chain 220, sc in each ch starting 2nd ch from hook

2) chain 1 (turning chain) sc *chain 1, skip 1 stitch, sc* repeat till end

3) chain 1 (turning chain) hdc, *hdc cluster into ch 1 space, ch 1* repeat into each ch 1 space, hdc into last stitch.

14) chain 1 (turning chain) sc *chain 1, skip 1 stitch, sc* repeat till end

15) chain 1 (turning chain) hdc, *hdc cluster into ch 1 space, ch 1* repeat into each ch 1 space, hdc into last stitch.

17) chain 1 (turning chain) sc into the front loop if each stitch.

18) chain 1 (turning chain) sc *chain 1, skip 1 stitch, sc* repeat till end

19) chain 1 (turning chain) hdc, *hdc cluster into ch 1 space, ch 1* repeat into each ch 1 space, hdc into last stitch.

20) chain 1 (turning chain) sc into each stitch.

21) chain 1, sc along the edge of the scarf to produce a tidy edge to the scarf. Space the sc stitches as evenly as possible. Cast off. Join again at the corner of the other end of the scarf and make a row of sc stitches along this edge to make a straight edge.

To get the best finish for the scarf it is best to block the ends. This can be done by pinning the ends of the scarf to a blocking board (a simple cork board works well) so that the edges are straight. Then spray the pinned ends with water and leave in a safe place until it dries out.

You could add a fringe to the ends of the extra long chunky crochet scarf to finish off, but I think it looks fabulous just the way it is. I ended up making four of the scarves for a customer to sell in their online shop.
