This easy chunky crochet scarf is sure to be a hit this fall! All you need to make this easy crochet scarf in 2 hours is your favorite chunky yarn and a hook.
Create a really easy and simple chunky crochet scarf in 2 hours! This scarf literally only took a few hours to make. It has a really simple stitch design. If you know how to make half double crochet, you can make this scarf!
Where actually going to take it a few steps further and work it in the back loop. This is what gives the crochet scarf that textured chunky look to it.
So you may have noticed that this scarf look similar to the beginner crochet scarf (Highlands Crochet Scarf) that I created about a year ago.
Side Note: It was actually one of my very first crochet designs here on the blog and holds a special place in my heart!
Well I’ve learned a lot more about crochet and so this pattern is an updated version of that pattern. With a few differences, like I added some really cute chunky tassels to this scarf and the yarn has changed (what a difference yarn and the color can make!).
Plus, let’s not forget the stitch count. So very different, but similar in looks to the Highlands Scarf.
The Lexi Scarf
The scarf that I’m going to be showing you how to make today is called the Lexi Scarf! I really wanted to create a scarf that was easy and simple, yet looked very chunky and textured. Something beginner friendly, which is why I pulled out my first design.
My thoughts were something like this:
- chunky yarn
- texture overload
- easy stitch
- under 2 hours
- ribbed effect scarf
- chunky tassels
So with that being said, I think I came up with the perfect scarf. I can just imagine wearing this while hiking in the forest or going for a walk with friends in the mountains. Well, since I don’t live near the mountains, this beautiful chunky crochet scarf will be going to a friend of mine.
Inspiration Behind the Name
The inspiration behind the name of my easy chunky crochet scarf is because it’s named after a very good friend of mine. I really wanted to make her something special and so I thought this chunky scarf would be the perfect gift!
I know that she will get a lot of use out of it. The chunkiness of this scarf will make it really warm and the texture, plus tassels give it that wow factor look.
Homemade gifs are really the best! You just can’t beat a homemade gift. What’s one homemade gift that you have made for someone?
The yarn I’ve chosen for this project is Lion Brand Thick & Quick in the bonus bundle size. It’s a bulky number 6 yarn. I bought mine at Walmart, because they happen to have a crazy deal on the bonus bundles. To good to pass up!
I would recommend going through your yarn stash and seeing what type of yarn you have. Any bulky yarn would work for this chunky crochet scarf. I even think a worsted weight yarn would work for this project, you would just have to adjust the stitch count.
