Crochet a Pocket Scarf + free pattern

This soft and snuggly free Pocket Scarf Crochet Pattern is perfect to keep you toasty and warm this winter!  It’s a great project for beginners since it’s all straight lines of double and single crochet.

This Crochet Pocket Scarf project is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hobby Lobby. The opinions and text are all mine.

One of my favorite things to do in the winter is snuggling up on the couch with a big cuddly warm blanket, a hot drink, my favorite show on the TV and an easy crochet project in my lap! There’s just something about the cold weather that gets me motivated to crochet all sorts of projects.  From small throws to hats and scarves for everyone!

The project I am sharing today is a fabulous scarf with pockets!  It’s a free pattern from Hobby Lobby.   What I love about this pattern is the simplicity.  The scarf is several rows of double crochet, and the pocket is a square of single crochet.  It’s a perfect project for a beginner to advanced level crocheter.  What makes the scarf even simpler (and go twice as fast) is that the pattern is designed to be crocheted with a bulky yarn.  (and the bulkier the yarn, the fewer stitches needed, lol!)

The yarn I chose for my scarf was the Yarn Bee® True Colors in super bulky.

The Yarn Bee True Colors line is available exclusively at Hobby Lobby and comes in 11 vivid and scrumptious colors.  The yarn is so soft and squishable and was a pleasure to crochet with in this project.  I may just have to add a blanket in this yarn to my to-do list.

The colors I chose were Aqua, Yellow and Mango.  So pretty!

The scarf itself couldn’t be easier, it’s just straight rows of double crochet, with a couple of very simple color changes.

The pattern suggested a foundation chain of 200 single crochet stitches, but I found that amount to be too long for my 5′ 4” frame and went with 155 instead.  I highly recommend testing the length before moving on to row 2.

You could leave the pocket off, but how much fun is a scarf that keeps your fingers warm too?

I’m afraid my lil missy may be under the false impression that this scarf is for her…  Looks like I might be making another!
