crochet love {faux square scarf pattern}

I don't know how I did it.

Somewhere in the midst of all the nursing, newborn snuggling, and extra big boy snuggling,

I found some time to create this crochet scarf pattern for you.

I actually designed and created this scarf back in the beginning of December.

I have been just dying to share it with you,

because I love this scarf so much.

I have worn this scarf more in the past month than any other crochet creation of mine combined.

I love the look of the "square scarf" and I actually received a very beautiful silk one for Christmas.

I like how the point drapes down over the shoulder and fullness that it provides around the neck.

Since I still don't really know how to tie a scarf fashionably, I decided to make my "faux square scarf" into a cowl-square-scarf.

It is so easy to just throw around my neck on the way out the door,

and the luxurious Bernat Satin yarn that I used keeps me warm and comfortable.


The pattern is really simple, and even includes a little diagram to help you put the scarf together...

Size I/9-5.50 MM crochet hook
2 skiens any Worsted weight yarn
(I used Bernat Satin in Plum Mist Heather)
Large crochet needle


ch – chain

sl st- slip stitch

dc- double crochet

2 v-stitches = 1 inch

  1. Ch 56.

  2. Dc into 5th ch from hook. Ch 1. 1 dc in same ch. Skip next 2 ch. *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch. Skip next 2 ch. Repeat from * until 2 ch remain. Skip 2nd to last ch. 1 dc in last ch. There should be 18 total V-stitches.

  3. Ch 2. Turn. *(dc, ch 1, dc) in first ch 1 space created by v-stitch of the previous row. Repeat (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch 1 space across the row. 1 dc in last st.

  4. Repeat step 3 for 68 more rows (or 70 total rows). On row 70, fasten off.

  5. Once your rectangle piece is complete, follow the directions shown in the following diagram:

Fasten off. Weave in your loose ends.


  1. I did the first row a couple of times and I still ended up with 17 v stitches and three chains left... instead of 18 v stitches and 2 chains remaining. I figured (18 x 3)+4 would give a starting chain of 58 instead of 56. This worked out to give me the 18 v stitches with the chain 4, and [ch1,dc] at either end.

  2. Love this! Thanks Sallie for working out the maths, I ran into the same issue!
