Frosty Ridge Scarf – Free Pattern!

My first project with the Caron Latte Cakes yarn was my Sparsh Poncho. Not only did I love working with this yarn, my husband loved how soft and warm it was too. He picked a colorway for himself and asked me to make a scarf for him. Now, since the yarn is really bulky, I wanted to make a breathable fabric with it – something which was not too dense and with enough texture that it wasn’t boring to make. The Frosty Ridge scarf is soft, squishy, super quick and easy to make, and it works great for both men and women!

The yarn

The Caron Latte Cakes yarn has become one of my favorites to work with in winter. It is extremely soft and warm and comes in a bunch of beautiful colors! And, because it is bulky weight, any project made with it works up really fast too!

What you will need 

  1. Yarn: Bulky weight yarn – 350 yards / 320 m / 5.8 oz / 165 g
  2. Hook: 10 mm Tunisian crochet hook
  3. Scissors
  4. Tapestry needle to weave in tails

Experience level

Beginner

Sizing

My scarf measures: 10” (25 cms) x 60” (150 cms)

This scarf can be made with yarn of any size with an appropriate hook. See the ADJUSTMENTS section to modify the size of your scarf.

Gauge

Gauge is not important in this project. You can use any yarn with an appropriate hook to make it and the pattern will not change. The size of your scarf will vary depending on your style of crocheting and tension. I used a much larger hook than recommended on the yarn label for this scarf because I wanted it to be breathable and very drapey.

Abbreviations

You can find my stitch guide with all the abbreviations here.

Adjustments

Length: You can add / remove rows to adjust the length of the scarf.
Width: You can add / remove stitches in multiples of two in each row to adjust the width of the scarf.
