Crochet Pattern: Fast Scarf with PocketsBy Rachel Choi – 15 Comments
|Scarfs can do more than just keep your neck warm, they can keep your hands warm too! Or you can have a scarf with “secret” pockets by wearing the scarf with the pockets not showing. The simple idea is to create a scarf that is extra long so that the ends can be folded up to create pockets for your hands. This can be done with any type of yarn and just about any scarf style. In this crochet pattern, I’ll be using super bulky weight yarn and a large hook for a fast and easy project.
Finished Size: 4 1/2″ (11.5 cm) wide, 64″ (163 cm) long
Super Bulky Weight Yarn
150 yards of main color
Crochet Hook N (10.00 mm)
Gauge: not really important, be sure to measure the scarf to create the size you desire.
Crochet Pattern: Scarf
Start by chaining 8 or as chain that is as wide as you want your scarf
Row 1: ch 2, dc in third ch from hook and in each ch across: 8 dc
Row 2: ch 2, turn, dc in each dc across: 8 dc
Repeat row 2, seventy five times or until scarf is as long as you desire. Be sure to make it long enough to fold ends up to create the pockets.
Fold approximately 6 rows of each end of the scarf over to create the pockets. Sew the sides of both pockets shut with a yarn needle. Optionally you may line your pockets or add buttons or zippers.
