This chunky crochet scarf features a really fun cable heart design. Perfect for Valentine's Day!

This trendy chunky crochet cable scarf is sure to add some style to your cold-weather wear this winter. It is made with super bulky yarn and features a twisted heart cable pattern on each end.

You guys, crocheting this scarf has been a true labor of love and I am so thrilled that it finally came together. I was spending a few hours  minutes browsing on Pinterest and came across a lovely knit cable heart pattern, of course I thought to myself “hey, I bet I can crochet that.” So I grabbed some yarn and a hook and got to work. It took a few different tries to get it just right but I finally did.

This is definitely not a beginner pattern but I have a full photo tutorial to go along with it so if you’re feeling adventurous, give it a whirl.

The way I like to make my crochet cables is on a background of half double crochet stitches using only front post stitches, that’s right folks, no back post stitches at all. This means you will work your post stitches around the stitches 2 rows below vs around the row directly below like you typically would when crocheting cables. I like to do it this way because it creates a fabric with a smooth backside and minimizes the holes.

Crochet Scarf with Heart Cable Design and Fringe in Winter

 

Originally, I had planned on using a worsted weight yarn to make this scarf, I even have it started (you may have seen in on my Instagram feed), but I really wanted to get this pattern out before Valentine’s Day so I had to switch things up because I was running out of time.

I have a ton of this Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in my stash so it was an easy choice, this scarf took a little less than 3 skeins. I just love this creamy vanilla color called Fisherman. It is a #6 Super Bulky weight yarn so it works up super fast… seriously I made this scarf in 2 days. And that was mostly crocheting after my kids were in bed for the night.

This chunky crochet scarf couldn’t get any more cozy! 

In order for the hearts to be right side up on both ends of the scarf I had to make it in two pieces and seam them together. I just whip stitched the pieces together.  Then I finished it off with some fringe.

  1. Love this scarf! I had stopped making scarves because my interest waned about half through the project because most patterns are so repetitive, but this pattern has just enough challenge to keep me going till the end. Thank you for the pattern!

  2. Hi, when I get to the cabling (rows 4 and 6) am I hdc behind the cable or am I skipping it and hdc in the stitch beside it?

    Thank you

  3. This looks a little out of my skill set but it’s oh so Beautiful. I am going to try it though and thank you for all your beautiful patterns.
