Pattern Details

Skill Level



The pattern creates a scarf that is approx. 6.5” wide and 68” long (without the tassels).

Dreamy Scarf Crochet Pattern


Yarn: Approx. 410 yds (230 g) of any size 4 (medium) yarn. I used Heartland by Lion Brand in the color “Capitol Reef.” This yarn is size 4 (medium) and 100% acrylic. A skein is 251 yds / 230 m and 5 oz / 142 g. I used 1 and 3/4 skeins. 

Crochet Hook Size: J/10 (6.00 mm).

Wondering if you can use a different yarn weight or hook size? All my patterns are designed with the yarn weight and hook size that are listed in the pattern. You are welcome to try something else but the size, overall look and feel of your finished item as well as the amount of yarn required may be different. 

I really wish I could help and tell you how to make the pattern with a different yarn weight and/or hook size but I’ve only designed, made and tested the pattern with the yarn weight and hook size listed and I wouldn’t want to give you inaccurate information. You might find these two articles helpful: Yarn Weight Guide & Chart and Crochet Hook Sizes Guide & Chart.

Other Materials: Yarn needle, scissors and a measuring tape. Optional: an 8” object (such as a thick piece of cardboard or a notebook) to help cut strands for the tassels. 


This pattern is written for right-handed crochet using standard US terminology. If you’re more familiar with UK terms, here’s my US to UK Conversion Chart


  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sts = stitches 
  • sk = skip 
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet 
  • ch-1 sp = chain one space
  • V-st = V-Stitch (see special stitch)


4” x 4” = 11 sts (only counting sc and dc sts, not chains) and 10 rows following the pattern.

Dreamy Scarf Crochet Pattern

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is made from the chain row up. The number of starting chains determines the width and the number of rows determines the length. To adjust the width, make more or less starting chains in multiples of 2 (an even number). To adjust the length, make more or less rows.
  • Chains never count as stitches. 
  • Tip: Cut the strands for the tassels before beginning the pattern so that the strands are not all bent from being at the end of the skein.

Special Stitch

V-Stitch (V-st): In this pattern, a V-st is (sc, ch 1, dc) in the same stitch/space (this is commonly referred to as the Wattle Stitch but will be called a V-st throughout this pattern). 

Every time you make a V-st, you create a ch-1 sp that you will work into on the following row.

When working into a ch-1 sp, work into the space under the ch-1 and between the dc and sc from the previous row.  

V-st and Ch-1 Sp

Video Tutorial

At this time, there isn’t a specific video for this scarf but my Charming Baby Blanket Video Tutorial (from 1:00 – 15:17) will show you how to make it. For this scarf pattern (unlike the blanket in the video), chain 18 (or a multiple of 2) and use a J/10 (6.00 mm) hook. Refer to this pattern for each row’s stitch count and continue repeating Row 3 until your scarf is 68” high or your desired length.

Pattern Instructions


Start: Chain 18. 

For Row 1 (only) work into the back ridge loops. 

Where to crochet in the chain

Row 1: In the second ch from hook, sc. Sc in each st across. (17 sc sts made). 

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. In the first st (the st attached to the ch), make a V-st (reminder: a V-st is (sc, ch 1, dc) in the same st). *Sk the next st. In the next st, make a V-st.* Repeat from * to * across. Your final st is a V-st in the last st. (9 V-sts made). 

Row 2

Row 3: Ch 1 and turn. You will now only work into the ch-1 spaces from the previous row – not into the tops of stitches. In the first ch-1 sp, make a V-st. Make a V-st in each ch-1 sp across. Your final st is a V-st in the last ch-1 sp. (9 V-sts made).

Row 3 - Start
Row 3 - End

Row 4 and on: Repeat Row 3 until the length of your scarf is approx. 68” high or your desired length. You can end after any row. 

Note: If after Row 5, you are not happy with the width, start again and make a different number of starting chains in multiples of 2 (an even number). It takes several rows for the width to grow to the size it will be for the remainder of the pattern. 

Once you reach your desired length, fasten off and weave in all loose ends. 

Dreamy Scarf Crochet Pattern


Preparing Your Yarn

Each tassel is made with 4 strands of yarn. Each strand of yarn is 16” long. 

You will need 72 strands that are 16” long for 18 tassels (9 tassels for the bottom and 9 tassels for the top). 

If you made the width of the scarf a different length, you will need 1 tassel for each V-st on the bottom and each V-st on the top. 

You can make the tassels shorter or longer by cutting smaller or bigger strands.

Tip for cutting the strands: find an object that is 8” wide (a piece of cardboard, a notebook, etc). Wrap your yarn around the 8” object 72 times or your desired amount (each wrap = 1 strand). Cut the yarn in half. 

How to cut tassels

Where to Attach Tassels

It doesn’t matter which side of the scarf (front or back) you attach the tassels to, just ensure it’s the same for the bottom and top. 

Bottom (start of scarf): The tassels on the bottom go under the first V-sts made in Row 2, into the sc sts made in Row 1 (only the sc sts with V-sts).

Tassels Bottom

Top (end of scarf): The tassels on the top go into the ch-1 spaces made in the last row. 

Tassels Top

How to Attach the Tassels

A) Insert your hook from the back of the scarf to the front. Take the strands of yarn, fold them in half and place them on your hook.

B) With your hook, pull the folded ends through the end of the scarf (which creates a loop).

C) Pull the ends through the loop. 

D) Pull tight to make a knot. 

How to Attach Tassels

Repeat for each tassel.  

Trim the strands to make them all one length. I cut mine to be approx. 6”.

Cutting Tassels

Learn more in this guide and video tutorial on how to add tassels to your crochet scarf and cut the ends perfectly.

Optional: To prevent fraying ends, tie a small knot at the end of each strand. 

Preventing Fraying Ends

And now you have a new scarf!
