Thank you to Cascade Yarns for providing the yarn for this sample!

So there is this gorgeous classic knit scarf style that I’ve been seeing everywhere (like here), and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. Mostly because when I first saw it and fell in love with it, I knew I could recreate it as a crochet scarf.

It just looked so plush and warm and comfy… which is why I knew that just as important as finding the right stitches, was choosing the right yarn. There was no doubt in my mind that Cascade Yarns had what I needed!

After using Cascade’s Longwood Sport (a #3 light yarn) to create the Yenni Slouch Hat pattern, I always knew I’d use that yarn again. For this scarf, I opted instead for the #4 yarn in the same product line. When the Longwood 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino Wool showed up on my doorstep, I was soooo happy with my decision. This yarn is so plush. Every so often I wanted to put my hook down and just bury my face in it. It’s like crocheting with bunnies. Honestly. Baby bunnies.

The best part? Even using a somewhat pricier yarn, I still spent half of what I would’ve spent buying this scarf. What do you think… can you tell the difference?

*About Longwood 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino Wool:
Weight: #4 worsted 
Fiber: 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino Wool
Yardage: 100 g (3.5 oz) / 191 yds (175 m)
Gauge: 18 sts = 4" (10 cm), US 7-8 (4.5-5 mm)

Abbreviations Used:

   CH (chain)
   ST/STS (stitch/stitches)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   FHDC (foundation half double crochet -- optional, but recommended. View tutorial at


Special Terminology:

3rd Loop
 - The bulk of this pattern is completed in the "3rd loop". When working in turned rows, and after completing a row of HDC, these loops will be visible just below the front loop. So instead of inserting your hook into the top loops, you'll only insert it into that 3rd loop. This will force the top loops to go to the front of your work, which is how we get the "ribbing" effect. View tutorial here.


(1) This pattern is written in American Standard terms.
(2) Be sure to choose a soft, breathable worsted weight yarn with good drape for this pattern. If you choose a heavier yarn, such as Aran, you’ll need to adjust your hook size so it doesn’t become stiff.
(3) You can make the scarf shorter or longer simply by changing the number of stitches in your starting row. There is no formula needed.
(4) CH1 at the beginning of rounds does not count as a stitch.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Round 1: FHDC* 220, or until your foundation chain is about 54" long (it will stretch). Join to the top of the first FHDC with a SL ST, being careful that you don't twist the round.

*Alternate start, if you aren't comfortable with the Foundation method: CH221. HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each remaining CH (220 HDC). Join to the top of the first HDC with a SL ST. 

Round 2: CH1, turn. In 3rd loops, HDC in each ST around. Join to the top of the first HDC with a SL ST. (220)

Rounds 3-27 (or until scarf is the width you prefer: Repeat Round 2.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Pretty simple, right? Enjoy!

    Love it!!! And is that you in the pic? You look georgeous!!!

    • Rebecca December 3, 2015, 12:33 pm

      Haha no — I wish I was still that young. 😉 My model did a wonderful job for me!

  • Judy December 3, 2015, 11:44 am

    Omigosh, it looks JUST like the super-expensive version. You are brilliant! Thank you SO much for the pattern. I can’t wait to make it!

    • Rebecca December 3, 2015, 12:33 pm

      Thank you! 🙂

  • Cristal December 3, 2015, 11:47 am

    This is super cute and amazing photographs! I like that you converted it from knit to crochet because not all of us knit. Many times I find cute patterns but they are knit. It’s nice that you have that skill to make the conversion. And thanks for sharing!

    • Rebecca December 3, 2015, 12:34 pm

      Thanks Crystal! It’s not always possible, because knit stitches and crochet stitches are not the same. For this particular one, I just knew of a crochet stitch that would mimic it 🙂

  • Darlene P. December 3, 2015, 1:10 pm

    This is beautiful and a delight for me since it is crochet!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! I appreciate your hard work and creativity in converting the knit look to crochet!!! Cheers!

  • Ashlyn December 3, 2015, 1:16 pm

    You keep finding ways for me to spend more and more money on yarn! lol I really enjoy the Cascade Yarns Longwood Sport. It’s super soft and I love the texture! Now I need to order more…

  • Suzanne December 3, 2015, 2:04 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing another lovely pattern. I only started crochet this year and you have taught me so much. I love my bags and now I’m going to try to make this gorgeous cozy scarf.
    I can’t thank you enough!

  • Teresa Plantinga December 3, 2015, 2:06 pm

    HI!! I am in love with this pattern and just know my sis in law would love this for christmas! And i want mine to feel like bunnies….YES FOR BUNNIES!!! haha! so my question is what would be a comparable yarn that I could pick up at joann’s or michael’s that would be just as soft and work up the same way? I can’t seem to find the superwash extrafine merino wool in any other brand and the nearest Cascade seller is a bit far! So I was just wondering what brand/yarn would be very similar!!! Thank you so much! You are an amazing artist and I have worked up several of your patterns for myself and LOVE THEM ALL!

    Teresa Plantinga

    • Rebecca December 4, 2015, 8:10 pm

      Hi Teresa!

      Honestly, I’ve never come across a yarn in the big craft stores that comes anywhere close to the plushness of this yarn. That said, I had a tester work one up in both Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Soft, and they had a similar drape and looked quite nice. I hope that helps! 🙂

      • Teresa Plantinga December 5, 2015, 1:02 am

        Yes that totally helps!! thanks so much for responding!!! and for the pattern!!!!!! merry merry christmas to you and your family!

  • Teia Collier December 3, 2015, 4:40 pm

    I love this scarf! I think my family will love this for holiday gifting. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

  • Ashlyn December 4, 2015, 4:40 am

    Where did you find this yarn?

    • Rebecca December 4, 2015, 8:10 pm

      Cascade provided this yarn to me, but you can find it at 🙂

  • margaret mc gowan December 4, 2015, 7:04 am

  • Linda Felix December 4, 2015, 9:12 am

    This is beautiful. Wonderful to have someone be able to convert a knitted pattern into crochet.
    I can crochet but cannot know worth a spit LOL

  • Angie December 6, 2015, 6:25 am

    Thanks for sharing your patterns. They are all beautiful.

  • Rebekah Faith December 28, 2015, 3:31 am

    I just want to say thank you for sharing the pattern!!! I look forward to creating the scarf…I fell in love with the look of it right away as soon as I saw it…you have a very kind heart and generous spirit, some I will give as gifts, one I will make for myself and if the cost isn’t too high then maybe I will be able to afford to donate some…we shall see. Please take no offense when I say this but may the blessings of the LORD GOD shower you and over take you all the days of your life!!!!

  • Linda Allen. January 11, 2016, 9:12 am

  • Sara January 11, 2016, 9:43 am

    Love this faux knit scarf! I’ve made a couple in different types of yarn, but the super wash Marino wool is by far the best. A luxury item indeed but so worth it. Cascade long wood was not available to me so I used malabrigo rios. I also made one with I love this wool from hobby lobby. Same look but it doesn’t have that soft squishy feel. Thank you for your patterns. There’s not one that I don’t like.

    Working on this luscious piece of creativity – would love to know have you wrapped it around your neck. Love from downunder x

    • Rebecca January 14, 2016, 9:17 am

      It’s not complicated but I’m not sure how to explain it in words. Maybe I’ll try to do a video. 🙂 I basically held it stretched out in my hands, then flipped one end inward into itself 360 degrees, then doubled it up and put it on the model. (That sounds so much more complicated than it really was.)

  • Cheri Ita January 13, 2016, 6:39 pm

    I love this pattern. I can’t wait to find the time to make up for me.

  • Jane Bratton January 13, 2016, 11:15 pm

    I love it! Next in my list

  • Miss Abigail January 15, 2016, 4:15 pm

    Okay, loving your website! This is gorgeous and on my crochet list to complete for 2016!

  • Anne January 15, 2016, 9:21 pm

    Hi there. sorry about these questions if they seem very elementary but after you join, how do you turn? Also, for the third round and onwards, how does one turn? And when i join, the right sides are facing out right? Thanks for your beautiful patterns and for your generosity in sharing and responding to questions.

    • Anne January 15, 2016, 10:29 pm

      Hi there. pls help clear my confusion. When i join with a slip stitch, the front side will now be inside right? And when i turn and start working on the 3rd loops, it will be from the back side or the “wrong” side ? So that when you say the 3rd loop is below the front loop, it is actually what was previously the back loop? Thank you so much

      • Rebecca January 16, 2016, 8:23 am

        Yes, you’re correct. 🙂

        • Anne January 16, 2016, 6:15 pm

          Thank you

  • Kathleen Fowler January 16, 2016, 5:00 pm

    This looks so easy to wear and love the knit look

  • Nancy Herman January 26, 2016, 2:10 pm

    So disappointed I tried to leave a nice comment about your site and when I tried to submit it I received a message that I said this once already, yet I don’t remember commenting on your site before about your patterns or creative stitch combinations 🙁

    • Rebecca January 26, 2016, 2:17 pm

      Not sure why, I’ve never heard of anyone receiving a message like that. It looks like this comment went through… where did you try to leave the other comment?

  • Janice castillo April 23, 2016, 9:45 pm

    I have question: this scarf is done in the round with a slipstitch so why am I turning? Will I be alternating the directions?

    • Rebecca April 27, 2016, 9:23 am

      Yes, you’ll be working in opposite directions, that’s how you get the look 🙂

  • Francoise Hurt September 5, 2016, 10:13 pm

    How you get the scarf into that twisted shape?

    • Rebecca September 6, 2016, 6:45 pm

      It’s how I always wear my infinity scarves, but a little hard to explain. Basically I hold the scarf out in front of me with the left side draped over my left hand and the right side draped over my right, then I take my right hand and twist the scarf in on itself a full 360 degrees. I shake the scarf out a little to distribute the twist evenly, then I double it up and put it around my neck. 🙂

  • Elizabeth Facun Daniels September 11, 2016, 5:27 pm

    I can’t wait to try your pattern; it’s gorgeous! Thanks for sharing and making it free!

  • Sharon September 12, 2016, 8:13 am

    Pattern isn’t there when I click print?

    • Rebecca September 12, 2016, 11:28 am

      Yeah, something has happened with PrintFriendly in the last few days that has caused it to stop recognizing the field where I input my pattern. 🙁 I’ve found that you CAN still copy/paste the URL and plug it in on, and it will bring up the whole thing for you.

  • Violeta October 12, 2016, 12:16 pm

    Do you block it?

    • Rebecca October 13, 2016, 11:11 am

      No, but I never block anything 🙂

  • Laura October 21, 2016, 6:14 pm

    Hello. I love your scarf and bought the Longwood yarn in Doeskin. Will be making for my niece. My grandma taught me to crochet 44 years ago! I picked it back up last year after checking a book out of the library, and my aunt sent me some of my grandma’s hooks (which I cherish and think of her while using). I do have a question, I don’t have a yarn needle and need to know what size and type is best for this pattern? Thanks for your time and for sharing your talent! Laura

    • Rebecca October 21, 2016, 7:12 pm

      A yarn needle is just what you’ll use for weaving in your ends. So whatever you’ve been using for the last year should work fine. 🙂

      • Laura October 21, 2016, 7:22 pm

        Rebecca, thanks for getting back with me.

        I’ve never used a needle and don’t own one so want to make sure I buy the right type and size. I’m sure is personal preference, but I was looking on-line at the website you recommend and there are several pages and so many sizes I just need some guidance. Thank you so much. Laura

        • Rebecca October 21, 2016, 9:24 pm

          Ahh. I’m not sure what size mine is (I actually have several different ones). As long as the eye is large enough to thread your worsted yarn through, you should be fine. It might be easier to shop for it in person.

  • Fiona Leonard December 8, 2016, 4:26 pm

    I just started making this scarf. It says 3-27 rounds but can I ask how many are in the scarf pictured? I love the thickness of it but 27 Rounds seems quite a lot.

    • Rebecca December 8, 2016, 5:18 pm

      The scarf in the photo followed the pattern exactly with 27 rounds. (“Rounds 3-27” doesn’t mean to choose any number between 3 and 27, it means repeat these instructions for every round from round 3 to round 27.) The third loop stitch creates a more condensed fabric, so it will be skinnier than if you were to do 27 regular HDC rounds. The stitch and number of stitches also contributes to the plushness. Of course, you’re welcome to do as many rounds as you want until you’re happy with the look.

  • Daisy January 18, 2017, 1:00 pm

    Happy blogiversity. The baby is too adorable! ! I love all of your patterns, the colors and styles are simply elegant. God bless you and your family always.

  • Rose January 19, 2017, 3:59 pm

    He is adorable. Congratulations. I love your crochet patterns. They are beautiful and enjoy making them for my friends and family. I also donate a lot of what I make for the homeless. Can’t wait for some new patterns. Thank you.

  • Neve January 22, 2017, 7:16 pm

    Thanks for sharing Rebecca – haven’t made it yet but I think it will look great!

  • Neve January 22, 2017, 7:18 pm

    Oh I forgot to ask – if I use a different size hook and yarn do you think it will look the same?

    • Neve January 22, 2017, 8:34 pm

      How do you make all the twists in the scarf in the photo

      • Rebecca January 24, 2017, 12:04 pm

        I hold the scarf out with both hands, then I do a 360 degree twist of one end into itself. Shake it out a bit so the twist gets evenly dispersed along the scarf, then double wrap it and put it on.

    • Rebecca January 24, 2017, 12:02 pm

      No, if you change the yarn or hook size it’s going to look different. What yarn you choose and what hook size you use will determine how different it will be. If you’re using yarn in the same weight category (#4) and an appropriately sized hook, the difference shouldn’t be huge. But if you’re using a different weight of yarn, you’ll significantly change the finished dimensions.

  • Sarah Smith February 7, 2017, 4:23 pm

    Hi! So I’m trying your pattern out. I have the first two rows done now problem. When I turn the scarf for row 3, I can’t seem to find the third loop? Am I crazy?

    • Rebecca February 7, 2017, 8:06 pm

      I’m sure you’re not crazy, but yes, the third loop should be there 🙂

  • Elisete Delgado Cancelier August 6, 2017, 8:37 am

    Amei, amei, amei esse padrão. Gostaria de tecê-lo para mim, mas não tenho como comprar o ebook. Lamento muito. Parabéns!!! É muito lindo.

    • Rebecca August 6, 2017, 4:02 pm

      The pattern is written out in full on this blog post. You don’t need to purchase the PDF or the E-book to complete it. 🙂

  • Kim Loor November 4, 2017, 10:24 am

    Love this pattern. I bought the yarn you used and it turned out soft and yummy. I have since made it two more times and given them ask gifts! I always mention your website, even to some of my middle schoolers who actually helped me crochet preemie hats! God bless on your new little Monkey…he’s almost a year old!

  • Anne November 7, 2017, 1:38 pm

    Can you direct me to where Incould find the knitted pattern for your scarf? I love it, but knit rather than crochet. Have been searching without success. Appreciate your help!

  • Frances December 1, 2017, 8:07 am

    I keep finding all these beautiful patterns online and I follow the links to your patterns ! I’m really becoming quite a fan of your work ! Thanks for all the beautiful patterns like this one – please keep posting and I’ll keep following 🙂

  • Kathleen Cohane August 4, 2018, 8:38 pm

    Love the Super Plush Faux Kint scarf pattern but I’d like to make it longer. What is the stitch number that I should use to increase the length? 220 plus increments of 3?
    Thanks for your help.

  • Steph December 31, 2018, 12:31 am

    Thank you for sharing this pattern! This was very easy to understand and follow especially with the links for explaining the 3rd stitch and the FHDC (which I never knew about before this), and I was able to finish this in a few hours. I made this with a super bulky acrylic/wool yarn and a bigger hook and I’m very happy with the result! Giving this as a gift for a friend so thank you again!
