Crochet Cluster Rows Scarf Pattern
Crochet Cluster Rows Scarf Pattern
Hello my fellow crafters! I am back from a trip my husband and I took; we headed to Phoenix, Arizona for a couple of days to get a break from all the craziness that we’ve been going through here at home. My husband works full time with web development and marketing, is in school, is planning on starting a new business, and just recently finished a big project: The Pop Hog mobile game. I’m super proud of him and my cousin for working hard to get this awesome game done. On my end, school is shifting from one major to another, my blog was hit by a few viruses being naughty, and my fibromyalgia is being particularly difficult lately. So our little escape, as I have taken to calling it, was a nice way for us to take a break, eat too much junk food, and reset. But I’m back to work on my blog and some new patterns to post! Starting with this one!
Hunting around for stitches to try, I found one that I just loved how uniformly it built up in rows. And since I’ve been working on new scarves for my husband for this upcoming winter, I decided to share this new pattern with you all. The instructions will be simple enough, and I’ll include lots of pictures to help you out. Be sure to read the notes first, they help out while going through the pattern. And take a moment to read the instructions for the specific stitch before you start the main pattern.
Materials and Gauge
- “I” hook
- Worsted Weight yarn
Yarns I Used:
Lion Brand Yarns Heartland in Sequoia (brown)
18 sts by 13 rows
Notes and Abbreviations
- This pattern will be worked in long rows, and the rows will be repeated to the desired width of the scarf.
- The pattern can also be made in short rows to the desired length, and stitches can be added to the desired width.
- This scarf will be made to measure 60 inches, but using the gauge, you can calculate and make the scarf any way you want.
- The chs at the beginning of every non-cluster row does not count as your first st. HOWEVER, the 4-ch posts beginning your cluster rows DO count as your first st.
Sp(s) = space(s)
St(s) = stitch(es)
Ch(s) = chain(s)
Sl st = slip stitch
Sc(s) = single crochet(s)
Dc(s) = double crochet(s)
CL = cluster
YO = yarn over (grab yarn)
Rep = repeat
Stitch and Scarf Pattern

Easy enough, right? And now my husband has a new scarf for the cool weather coming up soon. Well, it’s southern California, so hopefully we get some cool weather soon, but I suppose we’ll see if we get lucky enough. Perhaps a trip to the mountains will be in order. Anyway! Enjoy the pattern and make some scarves for your loved ones. Be sure to leave me a comment below and visit one of my social media pages, either on Instagram, Tumblr, or Facebook. Happy crafting!
