I don’t know what took me so long to discover corner-to-corner crochet. Seriously.

Often c2c crochet is used to create character patterns, but as soon as Boye Yarn Crafts invited me to participate in their super scarf blog hop, I knew the massive neck warmer I had in mind would be perfect for c2c. (If you’re totally new to corner-to-corner crochet like I was three months ago, this video and these resources are how I taught myself.)

This free Icelandic-inspired crochet pattern using a c2c technique to make intarsia crochet.

I took inspiration from classic Nordic sweaters for this pattern. And while I (unwittingly) used a color palette that’s almost identical to my Desert Winds Triangle Scarf, I think this super scarf would be awesome in more masculine colors, like red, dark grey or blue, too. I mean, if Lenny Kravitz can rock this, your man definitely needs his own bulky, oversized neck blanket, right?

Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn ended up being absolutely perfect for this free crochet super scarf pattern. The chunky texture of this yarn is so organic and I love imagining it coming straight to me from the sheep. I’ve got some serious prairie girl fantasies that this 100% wool yarn totally satisfies.

Sizes: One size – approximately 102 x 10.5”

Supplies:
So you can spend more time crocheting and less time shopping, this pattern contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you.
Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn: (6) Grey, (2) Aran, (1) Pale Blush, (1) Taupe, (1) Natural
• Tapestry needle
• Size I [5.5 mm] crochet hook 
• Two printed copies of my Nordic c2c crochet chart

Gauge:
5 c2c squares = 4”
Gauge is not critical for this pattern.

Abbreviations:
hdc – half double crochet
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch

Pattern Notes:

  • This scarf is worked using the corner to corner (c2c) crochet technique first from the bottom of the graph up, then with a large section of grey c2c squares in the middle (not shown on the detailed graph) and finished up by working the graph from the top down. Therefore, you’ll want to print two copies of the graph pages if you like to cross off the rows as you go. Tape all three pages of the graph together in order (1, 2, 3) to form a complete chart.
  • It is very helpful to crochet over your yarn ends as you go in this pattern so that you have fewer to weave in at the end. If you’re diligent as you go, you’ll have surprisingly few left that need to be woven in with a tapestry needle.
  • IMPORTANT: To achieve the listed dimensions, work the C2C method using half double crochet (hdc) stitches. Therefore, to add a new square at the beginning of the row, you’ll ch 5 and work the first hdc into the third ch from the hook. At the beginning of each new square (after the slip stitch), ch 2 and then proceed with 3 hdc to finish the box.

How to do corner to corner crochet to make a super scarf. Click to download the free pattern using Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn. 1st Third of the Scarf:
Using hdc as outlined above, work the graph beginning at row 1 until row 53.

2nd Third of the Scarf:
With only grey yarn, cont. in established c2c pattern (using hdc) for 36 rows.

3rd Third of the Scarf:
Rotate second copy of the graph 180 degrees. Work the graph, beginning at row 53 until row 1.

Finishing:
Fasten off and weave in any remaining ends.

Add fringe to every other c2c square at the bottom of each side of the scarf. To do this, cut “Natural” colored yarn into 21” pieces. Combine four strands, fold them in half and use a crochet hook to pull them from the back of the scarf through to the front. Then pull the strands through the loop that is created. Trim as desired.

Simple tutorial for how to add fringe to a crocheted scarf using Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn. Book a one way ticket to the North Pole, because my friend, you are definitely cold weather ready!

      Hello to a fellow Jessica! 🙂

      I made this in about a week, but I worked on it pretty consistently for a few hours each night. You could always make the middle grey section shorter if you’re worried about it taking too long.

      Happy crocheting!

      Hey Lucy,

      You can download the free printable graph by clicking the link in the “supplies” section. Then the instructions for how to use the graph to make the entire scarf are below that. If you’d like to buy a version where you can just print it all out in one handy, ad-free pdf, that’s what you can get for $2.50. Unfortunately, PayPal isn’t an option right now with the company I use to deliver the pdfs. I’m sorry! (If that’s a real issue for you, please email me and you can just PayPal me directly and I’ll email you the pdf. 🙂 My email address is jess (at) makeanddocrew (dot) com.

    I love this pattern! I would like to make it wide enough to fit a twin-size bed. Is this possible and is the scarf long enough to cover the length of the bed? I will be printing the full pattern because I can work from a graft better than written instructions when crocheting. Thank you for sharing all fo your beautiful creations with us! Have a great weekend.

      Oh my gosh–THAT SOUNDS SO AWESOME!! You can check the measurements listed above against the length you’d like for your bed and always add extra grey if necessary. Do you ever use StitchFiddle.com to design charts? It might be fun for you to play with as you figure out this blanket pattern. I’d love to see a pic when you finish!

    The Winter Wanderer is a seriously lovely pattern!!! The only improvement I can suggest is to write out a graqh for a multi-size (twin, full, queen, king) afghan!! I can picture an afghan on my couch or my bed or???

    This is so cool! I’ve never heard of c2c crochet but it’s a technique I shall definitely look more into. The speed I go at I think this may be gifted next Christmas if I try it 🙂 but it’s a design I adore and will be pinned as a definite to do. The pine cone and reindeer are brilliant too. Would make an awesome motif on sweater IMO.

    Thanks so much for sharing x

    I’ve been in a frustrated rut lately because I’m queuing all these beautiful crochet pattern projects while I’m still working on a blanket and now this pattern is at the top of my list.

    Thank you for making this wonderous scarf. I can’t wait to make it.

    I am in love with all your patterns (and I know realistically I’ll need a few lifetimes to finish all the patterns I love) but it’s a wonderful existence, collecting delightful patterns.

    Love this pattern! I started off with hdc but it didn’t come anywhere near the size of the scarf on the photos (which is what I love so much – it’s huge!). I have started again with DC and that seems to work. Is there a reason why my hdc don’t work?

    • Jess @ Make and Do Crew
      November 23, 2016 at 12:18 am

      Hmm. I’m not sure. Are you using 5 ch to make each new little c2c square (and then working 3 hdc in for each square)? Did you do a gauge swatch? Was it way off? Are you using the same yarn I did? I’d say that if you’re getting the gauge with dc, then I’d just go for it!

      I really think you could! If I were you, I’d choose maybe one snowflake from the graph and then make several (maybe 9?) squares using that snowflake graph. I’d do a simple grey border around each and then sew them together like I did in my Christmas c2c afghan. That’s just a thought. Do whatever lights your creative fire!

      I’d love to see whatever you make if you’d like to share!

      It’s actually done in one long piece. Those colors sound awesome! If you’d like to email me, I just put together line-by-line c2c instructions for graph that I will be including in the PDF. I can send them to you if you’d like.
