This is a simple scarf with a keyhole feature. Otherwise known as a keyhole scarf or a pull through scarf. This type of scarf fits really nicely under a jacket but also looks very nice over a sweater. It is a great scarf to keep your neck warm.
The stitches used in the scarf are chains, single crochet and double crochet stitches. It is also an easy 2 row repeat so you can work this up while watching tv.
A bulky weight yarn and a size 8mm crochet hook are used to make this scarf. Using a bulky weight yarn and a large hook, this easy keyhole scarf can be worked up pretty quickly.
I made 2 of these keyhole scarves with different yarns. I used Red Heart Hygge and Loops & Threads Eco-Cozy yarn. I was drawn to the Eco-Cozy yarn for 2 reasons. 1 is that it is a recycled yarn made from recycled plastic bottles! It is actually very soft and I love that it is a single ply yarn. A single ply yarn really gives some more definition to the crochet stitches.
Many bulky weight yarns should work fine with this pattern. Always check gauge to make sure you are on the right track though since yarns do behave differently.
