Easy Bobble Stitch Crochet Scarf

I had enough yarn left over in my stash from the Prima Ballerina Blanket Kit to crochet a bobble stitch scarf.  My pattern is an easy design. If you can double crochet (US single crochet) and treble crochet (US double crochet) you will be able to crochet this scarf.

You’ll need to count stitches for the alternate bobble stitch rows and change colour but this is a project that you’ll get into the rhythm easily and be able to have conversations or watch TV at the same time 🙂

Design Inspiration

I’ve been thinking of projects where I could use up my yarn stash and with all the grey days we’ve had over winter so far, I wanted to work with something colourful and that would be fun.  Colour has the ability to lift your mood and I definitely needed a boost!

How the pattern is worked

My design changes works with 6 colours and colour changes every 3rd row. 

You can choose to crochet your scarf in one colour and ignore the colour changes in the instructions.

This pattern uses a 5 treble (US double crochet) bobble stitch.

A bobble stitch is worked into one stitch and in my crochet pattern, secured with a chain.

How to crochet a bobble stitch:

  1. Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops.
  2. Repeat the previous step four more times working into the same stitch. There will be six loops on the hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through all six loops.
  4. To secure the top of the bobble closed, chain 1.

I don’t like tassels or pompoms on scarves as they tend to catch in zips and button holes although this scarf would look fabulous with either of these.

You can download a free pompom template and find instructions for how to make a pompom on my hot water bottle crochet cover pattern.
