The Acorn Scarf crochet pattern may just be my favourite crochet scarf of the year! And when you see the texture you’ll know why!
The Acorn Scarf features the beautiful texture of the Little Rocks crochet stitch. The design is comprised of puff stitches and single crochet stitches that are worked in a unique way to give them a more intriguing look. You’ll see this worked in the full video tutorial below. The stitch pattern is not too dense which means that while the scarf is cozy and thick it still has a beautiful drape.
For this design I used a Mandala Bonus Bundle cake by Lion Brand Yarn. You will not necessarily need the entire cake however unless you choose to make a longer or wider scarf or add a longer and thicker fringe to the ends. Having a little left over in the cake will allow you to do this.
The other wonderful thing about using one of these cakes is the colour changes. I love using the yarn cakes as it makes colour changes easy.
The crochet pattern for the Acorn Scarf will be written out in full below followed by a free video tutorial. The pattern is free to follow here on my website and always will be.
