The Winter Sky Scarf Pattern is my January Scarf of the Month Club CAL Pattern. This textured crochet scarf is worked in rows and features divided sections of post stitches. The finished scarf is warm and easy to wear.
For this project you will need Chunky Weight / Bulky Weight Yarn and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook.
Visit me next week to get the coordinating hat (the Winter Sky Hat).
Winter Sky Scarf Pattern
The Yarn I used
For my Winter Sky Scarf I used 7.6 oz (215 g) / 359 yds (327 m) King Cole Shadow Chunky yarn, in the shade Mercury (4008).
Shadow Chunky Yarn is 100% Premium Acrylic and I love the shades that were blended for each ball of yarn. There aren’t any significant color stripes or chunks as the shades flow into each other so perfectly. The colors have a bit of a watercolored look to them and there is a soft lustre to the stitches when the light hits them.
This yarn is great for winter wearables and bonus! it is machine washable and dryable too.

January 2023 Scarf of the Month CAL
Winter Sky Scarf Pattern
- Yarn: King Cole Shadow Chunky (check your local yarn shop here). Find it online here. (affiliate link) 3.52 oz (100 g) and 167 yds (152 m). 100% Premium Acrylic. Chunky Weight Yarn . Gentle wash at 40°. Tumble dry, normal, low heat. Dry clean, any solvent. Do not iron. Do not bleach.
- Colors: 2 skeins Mercury (Shade: 4008)
- Crochet Hook: 6 mm (J)
- Finished Project: Scarf: 7.6 oz (215 g) and 359 yds (327 m)
- Scissors, Tapestry Needle (yarn needle), Stitch Marker (optional)
Scarf width approximately 6.75 inches X 55 inches length.
Approximately 11 FPdc/BPdc per 4 inches and first 3 rows per 1.5 inches.
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.
- BPdc – back post double crochet
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- FPdc – front post double crochet
- g- grams
- hdc – half double crochet
- 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.
-  – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
- () – important notes AND sets of stitches to be worked within one stitch, or space
- Foundation double crochet multiple: 2
- I used a foundation double crochet to begin but you can easily use a foundation chain instead.
- Foundation chain multiple: 2+1
- The initial ch-2 counts as 1 hdc.
- 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, then add 1 additional ch.
- The back bar is also referred to as the third loop. It is the loop that is directly behind and below the back loop, on the back (WS) of the work.
