This easy crochet super scarf is warm, cozy, and l-o-n-g–all the things a super scarf should be! Also, the lacy details add elegance, and will keep you looking gorgeous all winter. Because this super scarf is so versatile, it can be made in a variety of lengths, and widths!

This crochet super scarf design is simple, and easy, but is perfect for any cold-weather occasion. The primrose stitch makes up the “lace” portion of the scarf giving a light and airy feel to an otherwise very warm accessory. The ridges are made using half-double crochet in the 3rd loop, a technique which gives the look of knit fabric.
Red Heart With Love is a soft, squeezable, very thick worsted weight yarn that makes excellent winter scarves! If I’m crocheting a piece that needs that extra warmth Red Heart With Love is one of my main “go-to” yarns. Because it is made from acrylic it washes and wears easily with very little special care.
I’ve had so many requests from you to turn this design into an afghan that I did that here <–click to find the afghan instructions.

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
Still unsure of how to do this stitch? Here is a brief tutorial video that explains it:
8 ft long (based on a starting chain of 301) by 6″ wide.
-Several people have asked how to shorten this pattern. Try 192 stitches (193 chains) for a 5′ scarf, and 228 stitches (229 chains) for a 6′ scarf. You could even make a longer scarf, just make sure your starting chain number is divisible by 3 + 1 (the first two chains of the row count as a stitch).
-Ch 2, and ch 3 do count as first stitch of row unless otherwise indicated.
-With the previous note in mind, I’ve put turning instructions at the beginning of the row to hopefully make things easier for beginners working this pattern. This keeps rows all together.
Primrose & Proper Super Scarf
Ch 301 (193, 229)
hdc in 3rd ch from hook (counts as first hdc), hdc in each stitch across. (300 [192, 228])
ch 2 (counts as first hdc), turn, and hdc in 3rd loop of next hdc from previous row, and in each remaining 3rd loop. Your final hdc of the row will go in the top of ch 2 from previous row. (300 [192, 228])
ch 2 (counts as an hdc), turn, [sc, ch 2, sc] in 2nd stitch, *skip 2 stitches, [sc, ch 2, sc] in next* At the end you will have one stitch left, put an hdc in that stitch (top of ch 2 from previous row). (100 bumps [64, 76])
ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, 2 dc in first ch 2 space from previous row, *3 dc in next ch 2 space* in the final ch 2 space put 2 dc, and 1 dc in the top of the ch 2 from previous row. (300 [192, 228])
ch 2, turn (counts as first hdc), hdc in each stitch across. (300 [192, 228])
ch 2 (counts as first hdc), turn, and hdc in 3rd loop of next hdc from previous row, and in each remaining 3rd loop. At the end, don’t forget to put a hdc in the top of ch 2 from previous row! (300 [192, 228])
Your scarf should measure about 3 1/4″ wide, and 102″ long at this point. You can continue repeating rows 3-6 again* or add the edging.
*You could even keep repeating this pattern until you have an Afghan!
