Introducing the Velvet Ridges Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hello everyone, after making the Velvet Stockings over Christmas, I just new I had to use the Bernat Velvet yarn to make something to wear.  It is so soft and cuddly, I knew that having it wrapped around my neck would feel divine and so the Velvet Ridges Scarf idea was born...

This is a premium pdf pattern and can be purchased from any of my online stores...

Velvet Ridges Scarf


Bernat Velvet 2 balls (uses approx. 400g of yarn)
Darning needle
8mm (L) hook


Approx. 74 inches (190cm) long (not including fringe)

Stitches used US Terms (UK conversion)

sc - single crochet (double crochet)

The scarf is crocheted in the gorgeous Bernat Velvet yarn and is worked sideways using post stitches to create a unique ribbed effect.

A pretty fringe adds the finishing touch to this super soft and cuddly scarf.

Keep warm this winter, in a snuggly, crochet, scarf. Free patterns selected by Lullaby Loge...

The weather recently has been very cold and misty in the mornings and  I have been so glad to have had a nice cosy scarf on, to keep the frosty air out.  So I thought it would be a good time to do another crochet roundup.  We all need a nice snuggly scarf to keep us warm at this time of year and I have found some wonderful patterns to share with you.

My first choice is by Amanda at Loops And Love Crochet.  She uses Caron Cakes yarn to create this lovely colour block effect.  The two ends of the scarf are sewn together, turning one long strip into an infinity scarf.  This is a fantastic pattern for newbie crocheters, especially as the yarn does all the work for you.  

Criss Cross Stitch Infinity Scarf

This would be a great scarf to make for that man in your life.  I love the mustard and grey combination used here and the interesting texture.  You can find the pattern at Crochet Cloudberry.

Alpine Scarf

Head on over to Knitting With chopsticks, for this beauty.  Crocheted on the bias and designed extra wide, this wrap can be worn both as scarf and a shawl.  I love the wintry colours in this one.

Poudreuse Crochet Wrap

Edyth Blayn's velvet scarf looks so cuddly and squishy and also comes with matching ear warmers.  If you haven't tried velvet yarn yet, I really would recommend it.  It's a little tricky to work with but the end results speak for themselves.  

Velvety & Plush Earwarmer & Scarf

This next design uses the Jasmine stitch in chunky yarn, to create this super squishy, gorgeously cosy scarf.  The pattern is available at Fluffy Stitches.

Crochet Jasmine Scarf

My final selection is by Sincerely Pam and is crocheted in super chunky yarn, making this a quick and easy make.  The simplicity of the design is finished off perfectly with some pretty tassels.  I do love a tassel!

Ragged Falls Scarf
