Simple Puff Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

This simple puff scarf is one of my favorite projects this year. It uses a super simple two row repeat that gives a beautiful texture and creates just enough variety to not get bored working those long scarf rows. The pattern is completely free here, with a video tutorial to walk you through the pattern!

  • Any DK weight yarn in 3 colors, about 100g each color. I used Universal Yarn Wool Pop (50% bamboo, 35% superwash wool, and 15% polyamide, 100g/284y). I love the slight sheen of this yarn, and it is very soft to the touch! The only downside is that it does tend to be a little bit splitty. I used colors Graphite (607), Silken (605), and Sage (615), 1 ball each.
  • Size G (4.0mm) crochet hook – I used an Odyssey hook from Furls crochet. They have since been discontinued, but I also love their Alpha hooks (but they’re super expensive) or Clover hooks (Soft Touch and Amour are both great, and won’t break the bank!)
  • Yarn/Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends.

Stitch Abbreviations

  • ch chain
  • st(s) stitch(es)

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked lengthwise. you can easily make this scarf any size you’d like. To adjust length, add or remove stitches from the starting row (the stitch repeat is just 1, so any number of starting stitches works just fine). To adjust width, increase the number of row repeats you do. I suggest making each color section an odd number of rows and using an odd number of colors. If you choose not to do that, just make sure you end on a double crochet row so the ending edge looks similar to the starting edge. Have fun with the colors!


Finished Size (as written): 70”x9”

Gauge (in pattern): 15st and 12 rows in 4”

Special Stitches

Foundation Double Crochet:

Ch3, yo, insert hook in first ch, yo and pull up a loop. Yo and pull through one loop, making an extra loop at the bottom of your project. This extra stitch is  your foundation chain. Finish the dc – yo and pull through two loops twice.

Continue across, working into the foundation chain made on the previous stitch. (this is shown on the video linked above as well)

Simple Puff Stitch:

yo, insert hook into next st, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull up another loop in the same space, yo, and pull through all loops on hook. **Do not do a chain one to close the puff like you typically do on a puff stitch.**
