Update: I really like the open weave of this scarf and think it would be beautiful out of worsted weight yarn too. Use your favorite yarn and appropriate size hook for a smaller version of this super scarf.
Super scarves are the new BIG thing. This month Red Heart Yarns is featuring awesome super scarves in a blog hop. I am SUPER excited to join in the fun.
Since some seem like carrying around a lapghan, I have to admit I’ve been on the fence about them. Now, don’t get me wrong, wearing a lapghan would totally come in handy. Mid day naps and warmth in super cold climates.
This month Red Heart Yarns is featuring awesome super scarves in a blog hop. I am SUPER excited to join in the fun…and then I started researching these gigantic scarves.
It doesn’t get that cold where I am and I don’t really have a neck to pull off scarves. I was determined to create one that was lighter weight, but still super scarfy. I hope you will love my creation.

Yarn: 2.5 skeins (224 yards) Red Heart Sweet Yarn in rust (or desired color), small amounts of worsted weight yarn to match (fringe – optional)
Crochet Hook: Q
Skill level: easy with basic crochet skills
Measurements: 10′ x 10″
Custom size: made the scarf any length. For custom width: start with a chain in multiples of 3, plus one for the turning chain.
1. With Q hook and yarn, ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.
2. Ch 3, turn, sk 2, sc in next st, *ch 3, sk 2, sc in next st*, repeat to end of row.
3. Ch 3, turn, sc in first space from previous row, *ch 3, sc in next space*, repeat to end of row. (4 spaces)
4. Repeat row 3 until scarf is desired length.
5. At end for scarf work the following: Ch 1, turn, 2sc in first space, sc in st from previous row, *2sc in next space, sc in st from previous row*, repeat to end of row. (12sts)
Finish off and weave in ends.
Fringe (optional): cut several strands of worsted weight yarn approximately 18″ long. I used Red Heart Aran Fleck and Red Heart Fall. Holding 3 strands of each color (6 strands total), fold the strands in half and pull the center loops through a spot at the end of the scarf. Pull the ends through the loop and pull snug. Repeat across each short end of scarf.
