10 Fun and Funky Chunky Scarf Crochet Patterns
Snuggly Gathered Buds Keyhole Scarf
The Gathered Buds Scarf is one of my all-time favorite crochet keyhole scarf designs. Cozy winter scarf must have’s, for me, include ample crochet fabric and snuggly yarn for warmth, a design element that is pretty to look at and full of texture, and ease of wear. This scarf has everything on my checklist covered.
Sugar Maple Crochet Chunky Scarf
The Sugar Maple Scarf is a “big” scarf — big in length and big in rib texture. I designed this rib scarf for my husband. I wanted to create a very warm piece to wrap him up in, but knew I would never get away with a true blanket scarf. So, I tweaked my original idea a bit and voila the Sugar Maple scarf design was created. Shhh, when he’s not looking, I borrow his scarf when I’m looking for something cozy to wrap up in.
Long Oversized Scarf Beginner Crochet Pattern
This first pattern is excellent for beginners because it is so simple and easy to follow. What is more, it comes with an online video tutorial which takes you through the process step by step, and provides lots of very helpful close-ups so that you can really understand the techniques.
With this pattern you are getting much more than just the basic instructions, you are actually learning how to read and interpret crochet patterns, which will be invaluable as you continue on your crocheting journey.
Of course, the super chunky yarn and thick weave also make this a really warm and cosy item, and it is a unisex design suitable for both men and women.
The long length of this scarf not only allows you to wrap it multiple times around your neck to stay very snuggly, but it will also provide you with yards of extra crochet practice. Ideal!
Crochet Pattern And Tutorial Infinity Scarf
This infinity scarf design is great if you are looking to create something simple at a beginner level, but that also has a cool design factor. The scarf pattern is one continuous loop which you can double wrap for extra warmth.
The advantage of this design is that it doesn’t unravel when you wear it and it also drapes really nicely around the neck and chest.

Easy Thatcher Scarf Two Color Crochet Pattern
If you are feeling ready to take on something a tiny bit more involved then this two color crochet scarf is a great choice. You will need to understand the basic stitches and techniques to follow this pattern successfully, and for that reason it is aimed at the advanced beginner.
The two colors interweave beautifully to create its eye-catching design, and you can choose whichever colors you like in order to customize this pattern to your tastes. The Superwash Merino yarn used in this design is very soft and cosy and will keep you extremely warm over the winter.
The scarf has plenty of width so can cover the shoulders like a shawl when not scrunched, or can be doubled over and worn around the neck for insulation. This pattern is a great one to have in your collection and will be a gentle introduction to working with multiple colors.
Gemini Oversized Cable Scarf Crochet Pattern
We absolutely love this oversized cable scarf pattern because the use of the cable stitch gives it a wonderfully chunky feel and lots of texture. The pattern uses bulky yarn for great warmth and insulation and the burnt orange color is ideal for fall.
The overall look of this gorgeous scarf is of long plaited hair, and the addition of the tassels on each end give it lots of movement and character. These tassels could be created in a contrasting color for an added bit of drama if you so desired it.
The scarf comes together very quickly once you get the hang of the cable stitch, therefore you may find yourself making one for all your friends and family! It really is a great option because it will become a staple in your wardrobe and will keep you feeling warm and looking cool on all your winter outings.
Kaira Three Point Scarf Crochet Pattern
This triangular scarf pattern is made from three separate sections stitched together and therefore has lots of great opportunities for different color combinations.
The three points gather at the front when worn to create a bulky scarf effect, but they can also be opened out and worn as a shawl or even laid across your lap like a blanket, so this pattern really is very versatile.
There are great yarn suggestions given by the seller, and it is important to make sure that you use three yarn weights that compliment each other to avoid your scarf becoming off-centered.
The skill level for this pattern is intermediate, so it offers a lovely challenge for someone looking to expand their repertoire. The huge tassels really finish off the design and help the scarf to hang nicely when worn.
Bohemian Wrapsody Scarf Crochet Pattern
And Finally, we had to add this Bohemian Wrapsody scarf to our list for its pun-tastic name if nothing else! This pattern really packs a punch and has so many quirky and fun features that make it stand out from all the others.
It is suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate level crocheter and uses a number of really cool different stitches in order to create the multi-textured finish. The weave is looser in some sections than others so you will have to have a good feel for tension to make this one.
It measures eight feet long if you include the fringe, and it’s a foot wide, so this really is a beast of a scarf and will add a bold statement to any winter outfit. The color choice is up to you and there is plenty of opportunity to get as creative as you like.
You can choose colors that contrast or compliment each other according to your own personal preference and you are sure to get tons of compliments when you take this beauty out for a walk!
