This crochet loopy scarf is extremely cozy, as the yarn is thick and both sides are padded with loops. The scarf is made in two pieces so the loops on both ends of the scarf will drape down when wearing it. This creates about a 2″ section at the back where the scarf does not have any loops, but if you wear it underneath a jacket then no one will know.
The loops are fairly easy to make once you have the hang of it, and you can make them as long as you want them. Here is a tutorial on how to make crochet loop stitches.
Material: Patons Bohemian, 2 80g/2.8oz. balls or more if you want a long scarf.
Hook size: L/11-8.00MM
Finished size: Measures 4.5″ wide, and you can make it as long as you like. (2 balls will make a 40″ scarf).
You can make the loops as short or as long as you want by looping the yarn around 1 or 2 fingers. For this pattern, I only looped them around 1 finger.
If you don’t want the loops to be on both sides, then you can alternate the loop stitches with single crochet stitches in every other row.
The scarf is made in two pieces so that the loops will hang in the same direction when worn around the neck.
Rnd 1: Ch 9, sc in second ch and in each ch across. Turn.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, work loop stitch in each st across. Turn.
Repeat row 2 until scarf is half the length as desired. Fasten off. When fastening off the second piece, leave a string long enough for you to sew it onto the first piece.
To sew the two pieces together, simply take the ends where you fastened off, and stitch them together. There is no right or wrong side if both sides are looped, but if only one side is worked with loop stitches, then you will have to pay attention and sew them together with right sides facing.
