Nebbia Chunky Scarf a Free Crochet Scarf Pattern

The Nebbia Chunky Crochet Scarf is the softest and coziest! Simple stitches paired with Red Heart’s Dreamy yarn create this lovely draping scarf.

This chunky scarf is long enough to double wrap. Or if you prefer to, style it as a cowl.

This chunky yarn has a brushed halo look and it is truly dreamy, as implied by the name.

I first fell in love with this yarn when I designed the fastest and easiest pullover ever, the Nebbia Sweater! I knew then that I needed to design a matching Nebbia Scarf.

The subtle texture of the stitches creates the squishiest chunky crochet scarf.

I love layering scarves for mornings and evenings. So many of them are chilly through the entire year. A stylish scarf is a beautiful and simple way to combat the cold.

The Nebbia Scarf is worked on the short end so it’s easy to customize the length. You can even seam the ends for an infinity cowl.

If you want to crochet a narrower (or wider) scarf just adjust the starting stitch in twos.

The Yarn

Red Heart Dreamy* is like crocheting with a cloud. It is so incredibly soft, The gorgeous brushed yarn lends this chunky crochet scarf a lovely fuzzy ethereal look.

I love the pairing of the looser front loop and back loop stitches with this yarn.

In planning the Nebbia design, I found that tighter stitches didn’t allow the yarn to shine.

Using a larger hook, plus crocheting under only one loop really let this yarn speak.

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite. 
  2. St multiple is an even number. 





FDC-foundation double crochet

dc-double crochet

blo-back loop only- insert your hook under the back loop, the one that is farthest away from you. 

flo loop only- insert your hook under the front loop, the one that is closest you. 


4” x 4” = 9 dcs x 6 rows of dc


84” long x 7” wide


To crochet a scarf that is narrower or wider, start with an even number of stitches.

To lengthen or shorten your scarf, just crochet more or less rows. For most adult scarves, at least a minimum of 60″ is a decent length.
