Hi, Thanks for stopping by, here you can get the free pattern for the cosy crochet blanket scarf that I designed. It’s a great make, super cosy and uses amazing texture which is really simple ….. when you know how!
This design uses Double Knit yarn and a 4mm hook, but it would be absolutely stunning in a worsted weight with a 5.5mm hook too – and quicker to make……. and that has got to be a bonus.

It’s as I type this, I realise I never got around to posting this scarf pattern – it’s over 2 years old now, maybe 3 (As One Direction would say…….The Story of my life – and even more fitting they broke up at least a year ago!) I have a lot of designs made- but are waiting to be written up – so it’s always worth checking back here to see what other patterns I’m offering for free.
Why a cosy Crochet Blanket Scarf?
I love the colour combinations of mustard and grey and this yarn from Cygnet I can honestly say is the best “Mustard” on the market…. even if is is called Barley!
I did a little bit of experimenting before deciding on the actual design.
I went to my go to – corner to corner, 2 strands, but it didn’t quite click for me, even though the appeal of a 5.5mm hook was calling me – can you imagine how quick this would have been?
But it was too fussy. Far too fussy.
So I tried again, and again it didn’t look like I wanted, yet again. I needed the mustard to ping, and look amazing on its own!
So I had a look at some different stitches, and absolutely fell in love with blanket stitch!
Just look at that texture….. isn’t it amazing?
As soon as I started this I knew exactly what I was going to make!
Yes, it was going to take a while with a 4mm hook, but it was going to be amazing!
Just look at the definition, and the contrast in colours!
This is a beautiful scarf, and so good for proper cold weather.
It came as my crochet in the car project, and was surprisingly quick to make for a super snuggly scarf.

I don’t think you can really beat a folded crochet scarf picture!
In a very rare occurrence, I managed to convince Mr Oth to take some pictures of me- rare because I really don’t actually like any photo of me so try to avoid being them at all costs, but I really wanted to show you this gorgeous scarf with it being actually worn!
So here you are, me, on a beautiful autumn day, (it was pretty warm in this scarf!)
On a glorious dog walk with my lurchers.
Don’t forget to Pin this pattern so you can save it for later.
