The Autumn Plaid Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

I’m back with a new free crochet pattern, except this time it isn’t a wall hanging pattern (gasp! lol). I know what you’re thinking, but I promise new wall hanging patterns are on the way! This pattern has been on my to-do list for a while so I am so happy to finally be able to share it with you.

The Autumn Plaid Scarf pattern came to be after I received a custom order for a matching beanie and scarf set. I had already designed a beanie, The Autumn Plaid Beanie, but did not have a scarf to match. I am always so grateful when I receive custom orders like this because something so beautiful always comes out of it.

Feel free to get as creative as you want with the color combinations. The possibilities are endless!

Happy Crocheting:)

Materials

*6.50 mm Crochet Hook

Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (yarn I used listed below)

*Yarn Needle

*Scissors

Yarn Choice

For most of my wearable items I prefer to use a softer worsted weight yarn or a yarn that responds well to a steamer. I tend to steam most of my items to make them more soft and pliable and I have found that there are some brands, such as Caron Simply Soft or a yarn that has a higher wool content, that don’t respond well to steaming. For that reason I tend to use Loops & Threads Impeccable or Caron One Pound. I have also found that the Big Twist brand works really well.

For this pattern I used the following yarn:

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Black

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Burgundy

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Red Hot

Red Heart Super Saver in Aran Tweed

I have also used the following:

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Soft Taupe

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Putty

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Aran

Stitch Key (US Terms)
