In just a few short weeks, I’ll be getting married and then heading off on my honeymoon! I’m in the thick of last minute wedding preparations – seating charts, beauty appointments, and SO MANY CHALKBOARDS. I’m very excited for my wedding but even more excited for my honeymoon! My soon-to-be husband and I are heading off to Europe to backpack to 4 different countries: Netherlands, France, Switzerland, and Italy.
Our honeymoon destinations, especially Switzerland, will be on the chillier side come October which means I’ll need to pack some warm essentials. Now seemed like the perfect time to make a new scarf to bring along on the trip. I got my hands on some chunky canary yellow yarn from Loopy Mango. I’m a total fangirl for Loopy Mango and have spent many hours drooling over their Instagram feed. They are all about the chunky yarns, fringe, and yummy textures.
The bobble stitch is all the rage this season and I knew right away that it would be the perfect for showcasing this luscious yarn. I started out by knitting bobbles via stockinette stitch but it was curling like crazy! I decided to frog it, and try crochet instead. I found a great tutorial for crochet bobble stitch from Hobby Craft. I crocheted the scarf flat using a mix of single crochet, double crochet, and bobble stitches. Then I stitched the ends together to make a long infinity scarf that I could double wrap. The end result was absolutely lovely! The bobbles really show off the texture of this yarn and remind me of buttered popcorn at the movie theater.
Want to make your own ultra-cozy, quick, and easy scarf? Yes? Good! Here is the FREE pattern!
- Super bulky yarn – I used Loopy Mango’s Big Cotton Cone in “Canary”. One cone is 240 yards and I used the entire cone.
- Size 12mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- SC = single crochet
- DC = double crochet
- Ch = chain
- St = stitch(es)
I used the following tutorial from Hobby Craft for making my bobble stitches: https://blog.hobbycraft.co.uk/crochet-bobble/
Row 1: SC in second ch from hook. Continue with 1 SC in each st until end of row. Turn work.
Row 2: 1 SC in each st until end of row. Turn work
Row 3-4: Repeat Row 2
Row 5: 1 SC in each st until end of row. Ch 2 (this will count as the first DC in next row). Turn work.
Row 6: 1 DC in second st. Bobble st. 3 DC. Bobble st. 3 DC. Bobble st. 2 DC. Turn work.
Row 7-10: Repeat Row 2
Row 11: Repeat Row 5
Row 12: Beginning in second st, 3 DC. Bobble st. 3 DC. Bobble st. 4 DC. Turn work.
Row 13-16: Repeat Row 2
Row 17: Repeat Row 5
Row 18: Beginning in the second st, 5 DC. Bobble st. 6 DC. Turn work.
Row 19-22: Repeat Row 2
Row 23: Repeat Row 5
Row 24: Repeat Row 12
*REPEAT ROWS 1-24, 2 more times*
At this point, I still had a good amount of yarn left and wanted a longer scarf so I started through the rows again, until I was left with just a small amount of yarn left.
*REPEAT ROWS 1-18*
Cut and tie off yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing. My final piece measured 57 inches in length.
- Fold scarf in half with bobbles facing inward. Be sure it is not twisted.
- Attach tapestry needle to long tail and stitch the two ends of the scarf together. Weave in ends. Cut excess yarn and remove the tapestry needle.
Flip scarf so that the bobbles face outward and BOOM! Your scarf is ready for the rocking. Enjoy your new fall staple!
