Easy Crochet Scarf Pattern One Skein Scarfie | Alza Scarf

Sharing is caring!

The Alza Scarf is an easy crochet scarf pattern that’s squishy, warm and gorgeous. Just one skein of Scarfie yarn is all you need to crochet this cozy scarf.

As the name implies, Scarfie yarn is excellent for crocheting the perfect length scarf. The subtle color changes make for an interest and easy colorful scarf that isn’t too busy.

This beginner friendly crochet scarf pattern uses simple stitches. The two row repeat is easy to remember for a relaxing crochet project.

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.

  • 312 yds #5 bulky weight yarn, pictured is 1 ball of Lion Brand Scarfie* in cream/teal.
  • 7mm (L) hook

My favorite Hooks are Furls* and Clover*!

For this pattern I use my Furls Streamline in Rosewood. The ergonomic handle keeps my hands healthy!


  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, like one of these standing stitches.
  2. St multiple is 5 + 3 for the foundation chain.

2” / 5 cm x 2” / 5 cm = 5 dc x 3 rows of dc

Finished dimensions

81” / 206 cm long x 7” / 18 cm wide


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.

  1. If you would like to seam this into an infinity loop scarf, match up the short ends and sew with a mattress stitch or whip stitch.
  2. You may also consider adding fringe to the ends, I have a tutorial here if you like.
  3. Or once your scarf is to length you're done!
  4. Cut yarn & weave in ends.
