The Enchanted Keyhole Scarf
This first published pattern of 2021 is an easy crochet keyhole scarf! This was a fun and simple crochet pattern to kick off the year with a crochet along!
This is an easy and simple crochet keyhole scarf pattern. Also known as a pull through scarf. This type of scarf fits really nicely under a jacket but also looks very nice over a sweater. The feature that makes this scarf different than any other is the keyhole. It is a scarf that has some kind of hole where the rest of the scarf is pulled through in order to be worn.
This easy crochet keyhole scarf design can be a little less bulky than some other winter crochet scarves.
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 crochet 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.
I also love Red Heart Hygge Yarn for so many things. It doesn’t show the stitches as well because of its fuzzy feature but its fuzzy appearance is why I love it!
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.
