You’ll love this chunky yarn crochet scarf pattern and have the perfect set with the chunky hat pattern released last week. The texture, easy stitches, and of course the soft squishiness of this chunky infinity scarf, will make it a new favorite!
Seriously, does it get much cuter than a kiddo in a matching scarf and hat set? I don’t love matching sets for myself but for kids, YES. It just adds an extra layer of cuteness to them and makes going outside a bit easier since we know exactly what we are looking for.

Why is it so hard to keep track of kid stuff? It seems like no matter how organized I am, they manage to leave their stuff all over the place without me noticing.
My oldest has a super nice pair of winter gloves for playing in the snow, but lost one of them somewhere at home. (Like, really?) So this winter he had to wear one good glove and layer up those cheap, stretchy fabric gloves on the other hand when he played outside. (Yes, I refused to buy him more gloves because I knew it was somewhere at home and I was hoping he’d learn the importance of keep track of his stuff!)
Well, hubby finally found the glove in the abyss of our minivan right as the snow is melting and we are ready for spring. (Better than finding right as I bought a new pair which I was sure would happen.) At least we have it for next year or if we happen to get an April blizzard like we did last year!
Chunky Crochet Scarf Sizes
The crochet scarf pattern is written for a child’s size, but there are instructions in the notes for adjusting the size for an adult scarf. If you’d like to adjust to a different size than the instructions provided, just change the length of the chain.
The child’s scarf was made for my 4 year old who is on the smaller side of 4. It sits loosely on her shoulders so I anticipate she’ll be able to wear it for a number of years. I did manage to loop it around my own neck but promptly felt as if it was trying to choke me. Those extra 8 inches for an adult size infinity scarf really make a difference!
As I mentioned in the matching chunky hat, both the colors used in the kid version of the hat and in this scarf have been discontinued, but there are plenty of other color options that would be lovely. The yarn is on the thicker side of the #5 bulky category so keep that in mind if you substitute it with a different chunky yarn.

To make an adult sized crochet chunky infinity scarf, chain 102. This will give you a scarf that is approximately 58″ around. To make it wider, approximately 8″ wide, add two more rows to each color block.
