How to make a Ruffle scarf

Crocheting a ruffle scarf can be a fun and creative project! Here’s a basic pattern to get you started:

Materials Needed:

  1. Worsted weight yarn (you can choose any color you like)
  2. Crochet hook (size H/5mm is a good starting point, but adjust according to your preference)
  3. Yarn needle
  4. Scissors


  • ch: chain
  • dc: double crochet
  • st(s): stitch(es)
  • sk: skip


  1. Foundation Chain:Start by making a foundation chain. The length of your chain will determine the length of your scarf. Make sure it’s a multiple of 3 plus 2 for your turning chain. For example, you can start with a chain of 23 for a small scarf.
  2. Row 1 (Ruffle Row):Starting in the 4th chain from the hook, work 2 dc in each chain across. You should have a series of double crochets in each chain.Note: This will create the ruffle effect.
  3. Row 2 (Base Row):Ch 3 (this counts as your first dc), then turn your work.Note: The turning chain counts as your first stitch.Work 2 dc in the space between the first and second double crochet of the previous row. Continue working 2 dc in each space between double crochets across.In the last space, work 3 dc.Note: This will create a scalloped edge.
  4. Repeat Row 2:Continue working Row 2 until your scarf reaches your desired width.
  5. Finishing:When your scarf is the width you like, fasten off and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

And there you have it, a ruffle scarf! You can experiment with different yarn colors and textures to create a unique and personalized scarf. Remember, this is a basic pattern, so feel free to get creative and add your own flair to it.

My name is Appelles Kireru, and I’m the Proprietor of The Crafter's Agency. I taught myself how to crochet in 2014, and I have been hooked ever since. In 2020, I finally conquered my fear of knitting, and I haven’t looked back since. But crochet is still my favorite! I also love to sew small projects. I make Artisan soap, design and make jewelry from time to time. I do my fair share of cooking and love to bake, too.
