Hello, it’s Lynda here from Homelea Lass and I’m glad you’re diving into crocheting scarfs. They feel so good to make for yourself or your friends and family, and are a great way to build your skills and confidence before crocheting blankets. The best bit? The 5 designs I’m sharing with you today are all free scarf crochet patterns for beginners!
But the question is, which scarf should you make first?
I’ve got 5 different chunky scarfs for you to make down below and they’re all suitable for learning to crochet – they’ve even got left and right handed video tutorials where I show you exactly what to do. You’ll learn so much about crocheting, and you’ll get to enjoy the gorgeous texture of chunky crochet.
Did you know that you can adjust the length or width of each of the scarfs to suit what you’d like? That’s one of the benefits of making your own scarf!
Here’s 5 different chunky scarf and snood crochet patterns and online courses for you to easily make.
Trust your initial instinct about which one you love the most and make it first.
The Grounded Cowl is the perfect winter accessory because it’s gorgeously chunky without being too big – it looks beautiful whether it’s worn wrapped tightly around your neck or as a big woolly necklace.
As you make it you’ll learn about starting and finishing a scarf, slip stitches, double crochet stitches, as well as crocheting a tube.
The Melbourne Snood came to life when I was looking for something to keep the cold Melbourne wind off my neck, even in Summer. It was inspired by lots of excellent coffee and delightful design market outings and it hung in my Melbourne hallway all year round – there are 4 season in one day after all!

Spring Headscarf and Cowl
I love accessories that can be used many ways, and this design can be worn on your head or around your neck. It’s perfect for pulling on as the days warm up in Spring, or as they’re getting cooler in Autumn.
The Spring Headscarf is inspired by growth and renewal, and its texture reminds me of leaves and vines growing and moving. Wearing your Spring Cowl feels light, warm and snuggly – perfect for when the air is crisp, and the sun is warm.
As you make it you’ll learn about starting and finishing a scarf, slip stitches, turning chains, half treble stitches, as well as crocheting in the round.
Warm Heart Scarf
Designed specifically for mastering the basic crochet stitches, the Warm Heart Scarf feels lovely and warm around your neck and shows off the beautiful texture of chunky crochet.
As you make it you’ll learn about starting and finishing a scarf, chain stitches, double crochet and treble stitches, as well as crocheting rows.
Warm Heart Cowl
I’m a big fan of cowls, snoods and infinity scarfs because they’re so easy to wear. After I designed the Warm Heart Scarf I had to take it a step further and join the ends together to turn it into a cowl that can be worn 3 different ways – it’s the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe.
