The Design

Inspired by shrubland plant landscape found in many areas of south and west portions of the United States, the Chaparral Scarf can be worn a variety of cozy ways — wrapped once, twice, or draped over the shoulders. The chunky, squishy texture works up quickly and is the warmth you'll reach for on cold winter days.

Fit + Sizing

One Size: 12" wide x 73" long


As written, you'll need:

  • approximately 790 yds of a category 5 bulky weight yarn.

Other materials you'll need:

  • 6.5mm crochet hook

  • tapestry needle

  • scissors

Yarn Substitutions:

I used Lion Brand Woolspun, which is currently discontinued. It would be quite easy to substitute any other category 5 bulky weight yarn (and some category 6 bulky weight yarns) for this pattern. Some recommendations:

Required Skills

  • working flat

  • basic sts and st combos

  • waistcoat st

  • gauging

  • loop recognition

  • understanding of **, ( ), and/or [ ]

  • following a pattern with minimal or no photo references

  • experience reading a pattern
