An easy scarf pattern with a fun new stitch, my Misty Pines Crochet Scarf is a free pattern here on the blog! This scarf is an easy project that works up quickly and features a lot of pretty texture!
Inspiration and Design
As we head into the month of March, the weather here in Jersey is still very cold and bitter. We have gotten a lot of snow and the wind has not let up. Standing in the parent pick-up line outside every day for school has not been fun. I thought a warm bulky scarf would be nice to wear while standing in line.
The design of this crochet scarf is very simple. It is essentially one long swatch with fringe. This makes the Misty Pines Scarf perfect for a beginner. It is crocheted using a variation of the loop stitch. This specific stitch creates a very pretty texture that is so easy!
I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in the color Misty Grey for this project This yarn is heavy but not super bulky. This yarn is one of my favorite to use for quick projects. It’s very soft, comes is a wide array of colors, and is extremely economical. You won’t be disappointed with this yarn. I have used Paintbox Yarns in the past to crochet my Group Stitch Baby Blanket pattern. I also recommend it for my Plum Berry Scarf pattern. If you are looking for a substitute to this yarn, WeCrochet Brava Bulky would be a good choice.
I have also included a video tutorial for the stitch I used to crochet the Misty Pines Crochet Scarf. It will take you through step-by-step on how to crochet the loop stitch.
