Cold Weather Scarf Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

The Cold Weather Scarf Pattern is my November Scarf of the Month CAL Pattern. This easy crochet scarf is warm and cozy and perfect for tucking inside your winter coat.

The woven texture of the scarf is created by alternating front post double crochet (FPdc) and back post double crochet (BPdc) stitches. This simple stitch pattern is known as the Rice Stitch and it is crocheted over a 2 row repeat.

To make my Cold Weather Scarf you will need Chunky Weight Yarn [5] and a 7 mm (L) crochet hook.

Visit me next week to get a matching rice stitch crochet hat (the Cold Weather Hat Pattern).

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

King Cole Nordic Chunky Yarn is a beautifully dense/thick yarn that is perfect for cold weather accessories. The colors trasition beautifully (no little ties or knots to deal with) and the finished crochet fabric resembles a pretty Fair Isle style.

Nordic Chunky is a yarn blend containing 80% Premium Acrylic and 20% Superwash Merino.

This Chunky Weight Yarn is available in 8 different shades. You can see them all here.

It is beautiful to work with and the finished scarf is sturdy and warm and perfect for the protecting your skin from the chill of winter.

I quite like the color choices available for the line and the finished Fair Isle effect it gives to my projects. I love working with yarns that create interest in a simple way without needing to change my yarn colors and weave in a lot of extra yarn ends.

Crochet Stitch Dictionary

  • g- grams
  • m – meters
  • oz – ounces
  • R – row
  • rem – remaining
  • sk – skip
  • st/sts – stitch/stitches
  • yds – yards
  • * to **– Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.

Helpful Tutorials


  • Stitch multiple for foundation chain: 2
  • Rice Stitch (slightly modified because I like to leave the initial ch 3 as the first st and begin in the 4th chain for the first row and because I like there to be a little more movement on the side edges of the scarf so I use a dc not a hdc in the last stitch of each row).
  • To increase the length of your scarf, work more rows.
  • The initial ch-2 counts as 1 dc.
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf.  You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To change the scarf width, chain until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of chains you can divide equally by 2.
