The All Too Well Scarf - Crochet Pattern & Tutorial

It was about time, really. I've wanted to make an ATW scarf for YEARS, but here we are, finally. Made using a crochet moss stitch (also know, it turns out, as a Lemon Peel Stitch, a Grit Stitch and a Granite Stitch, so CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT TO, ahem).

I recommend using a DK yarn for the scarf, but you can work in any weight, just test your tension to make the width of scarf you want.

DK Yarn options

  • Stylecraft Special DK - 2 balls in Claret
  • Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK -  4 balls in Ruby
  • Paintbox Yarns Simply DK - 2 balls in Red Wine
  • Paintbox Yarns Wool Blend DK - 2 balls in Loveheart
  • Lion Brand Truboo - 2 balls in Grenadine
  • Joann’s Big Twist Shine Light Weight - 2 balls in Wine


Hook recommendations

  • DK yarn: 4-4.5mm hook
  • Aran yarn: 5-5.5mm hook
  • Chunky yarn: 6-7mm hook



Measurements are for a DK weight yarn.

WIDTH: 30 sts = 20cm/7.5ins

LENGTH: 200 rows = 150cm/60ins

If you want to make your scarf, wider or longer, then simply add stitches in multiples of 2 to follow the same stitch pattern, then only stop when you’re happy with the length, but you will likely need more yarn to allow for it.



Using your colour of choice and corresponding hook.

Ch 31 (or alternatively, a multiple of 2 (+1 for turning ch).

ROW 1: dc (sc) in 2nd ch from hook, tr (dc) in next ch, *dc (sc) in next ch, tr (dc) in next ch, rep from * to end. (30 sts).

ROW 2-200: ch 1, dc (sc) in last tr (dc) from prev row, tr into next st. *dc (sc) in next st, tr in next st, rep from * to end. (30 sts per row)

NOTE: As you work each row, you will work the current stitch into the alternate stitch size in the previous row, aka the dc (sc) stitches will work into the tr (dc), and the tr (dc) will work into the dc (sc) stitches. This helps to form the bobbly texture.

To finish, cut 10cm lengths to create your tassels. For my example, I use 2 tassels per stitch, so have 60 per side.

Fold one tassel length in half. Insert your hook and pull just thr end loop through, then pull the 2 loose ends through the loop on your hook.

TOP TIP: So you don’t have an evident ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ side, I recommend working one tassel per stitch working from the first side, then flip the scarf and work another tassel per stitch. This way you won’t end up with an evident bump across the ends of the scarf.

Trim the tassel ends so they are level.If you want you can separate out the plys of your yarn, but you don’t have to do so.
