My Boba Bubble Tea Scarf is an easy to make project that is crocheted with Chunky Weight Yarn. To make this beautifully textured scarf, you will only need to use beginner crochet stitches; single crochet (sc), treble crochet (tr) and chain (ch) stitches in a very easy to remember stitch repeat.
This fun crochet scarf has a nubby texture (like little bobbles) on one side and it is flat on the other side. The hat pattern I’m releasing next week has this same great texture too!
A Nod to My Kids: My teen and preteen have recently discovered Boba (Bubble Tea) and are somewhat obsessed with it. I personally do not like to have things I need to chew in my drinks but have been known to drive 45 minutes to get this special treat for my kids from their favorite Boba Shop (I Heart Boba – not an affiliate link!). I sure love my kids, eh? Does anyone have a recommendation for a refreshing drink I might like (without any chewable bits)?
I have included specific instructions to make my Boba Bubble Tea Scarf in multiple sizes (small child, child, teen/adult small, adult medium, adult long, adult super long, small shawl, medium shawl and large shawl).
You can easily make the Boba Bubble Tea Scarf longer, or wider using the stitch multiple I have included in the post.
If you love this stitch pattern but don’t want to use Chunky Weight yarn, be sure to check my “You can use any yarn and hook to make this project!” section. I explain how you can use any yarn and hook to make your project.

Disclaimer: The yarn used for this project was given to me by King Cole.
King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.
Crochet Boba Bubble Tea Scarf Pattern
The Yarn I used for this project:
For my Boba Bubble Tea Scarf I used 7 oz (200 g) / 328 yds (300 m) of King Cole, Big Value Poplar Chunky Yarn .
This durable, medium-soft yarn is made of 100% premium acrylic. Each ball includes 100 g (3.52 oz) and 164 yds (150 m).
I like working with durable yarns like Big Value Poplar Chunky because I know my finished projects will stand up to daily wear. Plus, I find projects that I’ve made using slightly firmer yarns, last longer, soften with time and become some of my most favorite to wear items – that I can depend on for years.
Don’t get me wrong though this yarn is soft to the touch – it isn’t scratchy – it’s just a bit firmer. This yarn didn’t fluff or pill while I worked with it. I found no knots or ties in the balls I used. The color and thickness of the yarn strand was consistent through each ball.
Big Value Poplar Chunky is machine washable (40C) and it is available in 50 different shades. To see the shades available in Big Value Super Chunky, visit this link.
