Bonny Neck Scarf. Free Crochet Pattern. King Cole Chunky Tweed Yarn and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook. #KingCole #KingColeYarn #KingColeCreations #KingColeAmbassador

To crochet this fitted scarf you will only need 1 ball of Bulky Weight Yarn / Chunky Weight Yarn [5] and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook.

Visit me next week to get the coordinating hat pattern (the Bonny Crochet Hat).

Disclaimer: The yarn used for this project was given to me by King Cole Yarn as part of their North American Brand Ambassador Program.

Bonny Neck Scarf Pattern

The Yarn I used for this project:

For my Bonny Neck Scarf I used 2.9 oz (81 g) / 122 yds (112 m) of Chunky Weight Yarn.

I loved working with the Chunky Tweed Yarn. It didn’t fluff, or pill as I worked and the colored flecks were well intigrated into the yarn. The yarn is warm and dense; perfect for fall and winter wearables. My stitch definition is good and the yarn compliments my stitches (it doesn’t overpower them) which to me is an added bonus because I wasn’t limited to the type of stitch I used for my project.

Chunky Tweed Yarn is a blend of 72% Premium Acrylic, 25% Wool and 3% Viscose.

Chunky Tweed Yarn is available in a pretty range of colors with multi-colored flecks. Along with bright jewel tone shades, there are a few soft pastel color options too.
