This crochet pocket scarf pattern has a simple construction that makes it great for beginner and advanced crocheters alike. You start with crocheting the scarf portion, which mainly is composed of half double crochet stitches. There are a two rows of bobbles thrown in there to help add some texture. Once the main scarf is done, you’ll crochet the pockets using the intarsia crochet color work technique. Then sew them on! It’s a great introductory pattern for colorwork!
I’ve also created a tutorial to help walk you through each step in the pattern. You can find it on my Youtube channel at: Your Cozy Pocket Scarf Free Crochet Pattern Tutorial.
New to Tapestry Crochet or Crochet Crochet Color Work?
When I was first learning how to do crochet color work, I often felt so lost having to learn how to do color changes and reading crochet graphs. It can seem so intimidating to learn a new crochet skill! If you’re new to tapestry crochet or color work, then I’ve got just the resource for you.
Here on my blog, I’ve got a two free crochet tutorial for how to do tapestry crochet and intarsia crochet, which are the two most common crochet color work techniques. They’ll walk you through what each technique is, how to read crochet graphs, how to change colors in crochet, and a bunch of other tips I have for color work! You can find them here on my blog at:
– The Beginner’s Guide to Tapestry Crochet: (This technique is used when you would like to carry your yarn, and the color work is close together.)
– The Beginner’s Guide to Intarsia Crochet: (This technique is used when you don’t want to carry your yarn, and instead would like to use yarn bobbins. I used this for the Your Sunday Best Sweater)

Starting with MC, ch 203

The next row will add in the CC for the bobbles.
Row 4: (MC) ch 2, turn, *hdc 1, (CC) bobble 1, repeat from * to last st of row, in last st, (MC) hdc 1
Fasten off CC, we will rejoin it on the second bobble row, row 18.

Rows 19-21: (MC) ch 2, turn, hdc across

Row 2: (MC) ch 2, turn, hdc to st marker, crochet chart row 2, hdc to end of row
Rows 3-9: repeat row 2 moving up one row of the chart each row
Rows 10-11: (MC) ch 2, turn, hdc across, switch to CC on the last yo of the last st
Fasten of MC and weave in ends.
Rows 12-13: (CC) ch 2, turn, hdc across
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Once you have finished the scarf and both pockets, you will need to seam the pockets to the scarf. Position each pocket on each of the short ends of the scarf, I positioned mine in between both bobble rows with the bottom of the pocket aligned with the first bobble st on each end. Pin to scarf once they are positioned in the spot you would like them to be. Seam around both pockets, leaving the top (the grey side) open. Fasten off and weave in ends.
