If you’re looking for one of the warmest, squishiest, and best-looking scarves of the season, you’ve found it. This alpine stitch scarf is so easy to make once you’ve mastered the crochet alpine stitch which is such a beautifully detailed textured stitch pattern you’ll love using.

Crochet Apline Stitch Scarf

Have you worked the alpine crochet stitch before? If you haven’t, don’t worry, I have a full photo tutorial that walks you through the stitch, step-by-step. As a reminder, the alpine stitch is a four-row repeat made up of single crochets, double crochet stitches, and front post double crochets.

It isn’t a beginner stitch combination, but it should be pretty easy for anyone who knows how to front post double crochet.

The fabric created by the alpine stitch is super dense and textured. It isn’t reversible so there will be a right side and a wrong side of the scarf. The wrong side is pretty in its own right but it doesn’t have all the same gorgeous texture as the front of the fabric.

Chunky Yarn for the Alpine Stitch Scarf

Scarfie by Lion Brand Yarn was such a perfect yarn for this scarf. It is a category 5 bulky yarn that is an acrylic wool blend. It has lots of bounce and makes for a warm fabric. I also love the wide range of ombre or gradient colors it comes in.

This pattern works really well for making scarves for men too and Scarfie has so many color options, you should be able to find a good color choice for everyone!

Because the yarn already has a color gradient, you don’t have to worry about color changes and can let the colors change wherever they happen in the yarn.

With just one skein of Scarfie Yarn, this scarf is just long enough to sit around your neck and be tucked under your coat. Grab another skein of yarn if you want a scarf that can be wrapped around your neck.

Pattern Notes:

The ch 1 at the beginning of the rows of single crochet stitches does not count as a stitch.

The ch 2 at the beginning of the rows of front post double crochets or regular double crochets does count as a stitch.

Starting the dc/post stitch rows with a ch 2 is a matter of preference over starting with a ch 3. Feel free to use a turning chain amount (ch 2 or 3) that looks best with your crochet tension.
