Rosebud Scarf Crochet Pattern

Introducing: the Rosebud Scarf — Free Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial

Scarves are an amazing accessory. They keep you warm and stylish, and basically feel like a blanket wrapped around your shoulders. The Rosebud Scarf is a free crochet pattern using three different colors of yarn in the moss stitch.

This is a beginner level crochet pattern with a full video tutorial. Continue reading to learn a bit more about the design or scroll down to access the free pattern and video tutorial!

The Design

My vision for this pattern was to create a stylish statement scarf with small stripes. I wanted the stripes to go the length of the scarf, not the width because I love the look of long, detailed rows of stitches.

This scarf is designed using moss stitch. Moss stitch can also be referred to as the Linen stitch. Personally, this is one of my absolute favorite stitches to crochet. It hardly takes any focus to work once you get set up!


The yarn that I used for this scarf is Hue and Me from Lion Brand Yarn. This is one of my absolute favorite yarns. It is category 5 bulky weight so it works up so quickly.

There are so many colors to choose from and they are designed to all work together so you can create your own color palette that suits your personality!

This yarn is also amazingly soft — it contains 20% wool for warmth and durability. If you’ve never worked with wool before, don’t worry. Some wool can be itchy but this doesn’t bother me at all (and I am very sensitive to itchy fibers).

The colors that I used for this scarf are Bellini, Rose Water, and Desert. I love this pink toned neutral palette and know it will work great with my wardrobe.

Yarn Substitutions

Some other bulky weight yarns that I recommend are:

  • Lion Brand Woolspun (linked HERE) — this yarn is very similar to Hue and Me but spun a bit tighter. This yarn was discontinued a while back but Lion Brand brought it back for a short time!
  • KnitPicks Swish Bulky (linked HERE) — this yarn is the most luxurious on the list, it contains 100% fine merino wool (my favorite)

You can easily substitute any yarn you want for this pattern, just be sure to use the proper hook size.

Crochet Pattern

Using color A, ch177.

Note: If you wish to make your scarf longer or shorter, you can chain more or less stitches at this point. Be sure to chain an odd number of stitches.

Row 1 (color A): working into the bar behind the ch, in 3rd ch from hook, SC, ch1, (skip next ch, SC) across to end of row. (for help finding this bar, see video tutorial).

2 (color B): SC into chsp, (ch1, SC into chsp) across to end of row.

3 (color C): SC into chsp, (ch1, SC into chsp) across to end of row.

4 (color A): SC into chsp, (ch1, SC into chsp) across to end of row.

Repeat rows 2-4 six more times or until scarf reaches desired width.

Weave in ends to secure.

Adding Fringe (optional):

Cut many pieces of yarn 10″ long in the color of your choice (fringe shown in Desert).

Using a crochet hook, attach one strand of fringe per row by inserting your crochet hook into the row and pulling up the center of one strand of fringe. Insert the tails of the yarn through this loop and pull taut.

Note: I like to wait until I have added all of my fringe to fully tighten the strands. This way, if there is a strand that doesn’t look quite right, I can remove it and adjust if needed.

Trim fringe to the same length.
