Alza Crochet Scarf a Free + Easy Crochet Pattern

The crochet Alza Scarf is squishy, warm and gorgeous. Create scarves with stunning pops of colors to layer over your neutrals or keep it simple with a solid.

The Alza Scarf can be crocheted with just 1 ball of Scarfie yarn, creating the perfect length crochet scarf.

This pattern uses simple stitches and a 2 row repeat. Easy to remember and fun to make in every color.

If crochet cowls are more your style, then you can simply seam the ends of this scarf to create an infinity cowl. The pattern includes the stitch multiple for those who might like to adjust the width also.

Self striping yarns are a great choice with such a simple repeat. This allows the colors and the stitches to showcase one another. Not too busy for bright colors, and stands out to feature your beautiful work.

I love the wool blend yarns, with their added warmth and ease of care. Scarfie comes in so many amazing color combos, choosing one is the hardest part. Scarfie is a #5 bulky yarn and this scarf works up so quickly.

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  2. St multiple is 5 + 3 for the foundation chain.

Adjustments

For a longer scarf, simply crochet more rows of the repeat until your desired length. Likewise, if you’d rather a shorter length then stop crocheting early.

To adjust the width of your scarf you’ll need the stitch multiple found in the Notes section. You can start with a chain that is a multiple of 5, so 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. Then you add 3.

For this pattern it’s 20 (a multiple of 5) plus 3 = 23 (our starting chain for this pattern).

To make this scarf narrower, you might choose 15 + 3 = ch 18 to start.

To crochet this scarf wider than the one pictured, increase the starting chain. So 25 + 3 = 28 chains.

You can use this method to customize your scarf.
