Crochet An Easy Warm Mobius Scarf! Free Crochet Pattern!
Winter Calls For A Warm, Hassle-Free Scarf - Why Not Crochet Your Own!
If you are tired of scarf tails slapping you in the face every time the wind blows, this scarf is for you! It's designed in one continuous loop with a single twist and no ends. You make it long enough so that you can put it around your neck twice comfortably. When you're not cold, just let it hang out long!
You just pop it over your head, and when you need extra warmth you double it around your neck. You'll feel wonderfully cozy and warm. I designed the pattern for my goddaughter Laurie. I made several different ones for Christmas gifts for friends, and I will show all of them here eventually. I've provided links to purchase all of the yarns I used as well for your convenience.
Note - One thing I didn't include in the original pattern - if you add a single crochet border in a contrasting color (say, a soft metallic or shiny chenille) it not only adds beauty but interest because it really highlights the fact that there is no end to any row! Kinda drives you a little crazy to look at - at least it does me - in a good way!
Have lots of fun with this, and whatever you do, don't forget to make one for yourself!
This One Was A Challenge But Worth It!
I couldn't resist the yummy feel of Red Heart's "Chic" yarn with the built-in pom-poms! However... I couldn't get the hang out of how the skein was wound and kept spending tons of time untangling it. I will say, though, the end result was worth the trouble - I LOVE this scarf!!

My "Accidental Leopard" Scarf! - How DID This Happen?
I was about 2/3 of the way through with this scarf, had it lying on a chair and happened to walk by and actually look at it. It looked like leopard print! Since my eyesight is off, I had my husband and son look at it, and they thought the same thing! It was a happy accident caused by the combination of three yarns I used.
Yarn For The Snowy Sparkle Scarf - I'm using a size M hook with this.

A Closer Look At Laurie's Scarf - Just wanted to show you a bigger picture.
Laurie's scarf is done with Red Heart Kiss in Pink Quartz (gray with black, pink and white accents) and Paton's Brilliant pink together. I cannot describe how soft this feels with these two yarns together! But it sure has been a joy to work on. I'm glad I have two identical ones to make, because my friend Heidi saw Laurie's and of course, had to have one:)
A Word About Yarn Selection...
Don't limit yourself to just bulky yarns like the Homespun I chose for Janette's scarf. My scarf for Laurie was done with TWO yarns held together - Paton's Brilliant in lilac shade, with Red Heart's Kiss in Pink Quartz. They look amazing together worked up, and the feel is incredible!
Two scarves, the Leopard and Sally's, used THREE yarns held together (and a size N hook!) I was going for a combination of feel and sparkle, and I got it!
My Snowy Sparkle Scarf! - It Really Sparkles!
I couldn't resist... I sneaked one of these in for myself! I did mine in white Spark-A-Doodle, held together with Hobby Lobby's Enchantress, in white with sequins. It is soooo soft and cozy I can't wait to wear it! I'll give you a convenient link here to get the yarn I used on this one, to save you driving to two different stores!
Postscript - I have to tell you, (it's January 2) I just wore this out last night at 3 am for the first time. We had to run to the convenience store and it was in the upper 20's and very windy. The scarf was the single warmest scarf I have ever owned. Ever. And no hassle at all to wear, put on or take off. I am in scarf love!
Janette's Spicy Scarf
The one featured in this photo was a surprise gift for my son's girlfriend. Janette's favorite color was orange, so finding a pretty orange yarn was the challenge. I settled on Homespun's "Spice." I think it is very pretty, lots of warm colors mixing around with the occasional brighter orange. It was fun to work up. And she loved it!!

Sally's Scarf... Exhausting Myself in Reds!
This one had to be in glorious, soft reds. My BFF Sally loves red. So off I went to the LYS tonight, in search of the perfect reds for her scarf. I settled on three; this one is done in Enchantress sequin yarn in Cherry; Premier Yarn's Serenity Chunky in Berry Burst; and Hobby Lobby's Cameo Bulky in Carnelian. It's a combination that is heavenly soft with a subtle sparkle from the sequins. I worked it up in a couple of hours with an "M" hook this evening. Did I mention I love red too?? Too bad, it required a full skein on the Cameo. I was hoping for leftovers!
I didn't have the heart to disturb little Ladybug from her nap under the scarf, so that's her under there in the photo!
Crochet Hook Size K for Homespun, Adjust Accordingly For Your Comfort
Make a foundation chain that goes around your neck and touches your waistline with ends held together in a loop, unstretched. That is your custom fit size.
Very carefully lay the chain out entirely flat, right side up. Loop the chain so that the ends come together. Now twist ONE side just once. Slip stitch to join the ends.
Chain 1, SC in next chain. *CH 1, skip one chain, SC in next chain. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 1, sl st in first SC.
Ch 1, SC in first Ch 1 space. *Ch 1, skip next SC, SC in next ch 1 space. Repeat * around.
NOTE: You have a choice here. You can either complete each round, doing a slip stitch to first stitch and repeating round 2; OR you can skip the joining and go endless - simply jump over the joining stitch at the end of round 2 and SC in the next ch 1 space. Then continue in pattern in an endless loop until piece measures desired width - at least 5" wide and more as you wish.
You can complete 4" plus with just one skein of Homespun.
Another Option For More Warmth!
Modify the pattern so that you don't do any skips or chain-1's. In other words, do a single crochet in every stitch. This will result in a heavier and warmer scarf.
