Free Crochet Pattern, Double Knot Scarf

How can you not not love the Double Knot Scarf crochet pattern? See what I did there? Oh dear, my jokes are getting really corny. I think it’s from all the candy corn I ate this Halloween.

Anywho, have you seen those scarfs at the store with the knots on the ends for decoration? They are super cute but they don’t make any sense. Why a knot in a scarf? Just to be trendy? Maybe not (I did it again, hee-hee). That’s when it hit me, knot two scarves together. That makes sense! That’s cute AND functional, not to mention clever.

This scarf is warm because it’s double layered. And if you use the Red Heart Hygge and Soft yarn it’s ridiculously warm and cozy. It’s time to buy some Hygge! Oh yeah!

Bonus: the pattern is easy and works up super fast. Good for gifts! One scarf is alternating rows of single crochet and treble crochet. The other is alternating stitches of double crochet and single crochet (aka the Up and Down stitch, chart included of course).

This scarf is going to get you lots of compliments on the slopes, oh wait that was me 20 years ago, I mean at the school bus stop and in the grocery store. Hey, a compliment is a compliment no matter what the decade, am I right?!

  • Crochet hook size US I/9 (5.5 mm)
  • Crochet hook size US K/10.5 (6.5 mm)

Scarf Part 1: Using US I/9 (5.5 mm) and yarn (A) or (B) 14 stitches and 13 rows = 4”/10 cm in the Up and Down stitch, see stitch chart below, count each sc and dc as a separate stitch, do not count stitch repeats
Scarf Part 2: Using US K/10.5 (6.5 mm) and yarn (C) 10 stitches and 4 sc and 3 tr rows = 4”/10 cm in alternating rows of single crochet and treble crochet

Finished Measurements:

Before knotting: 102”/259 cm long and 4.5”/11.5 cm wide

Finished: 84”/213 cm long and 4.5”/11.5 cm wide

Project Level:


  • ch(s) – chain(s)
  • sc – single crochet
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • dc – double crochet
  • tr – treble crochet


  • The pattern is written in US terms.
  • This pattern has been tested and professionally tech edited for accuracy and clarity.
  • Ch 1 does not count as a st throughout the pattern.
  • Ch 4 does count as a tr throughout the pattern.
  • The scarf is made in two parts and finished by knotting together in two spots.
  • Scarf part 1 will have 8 blocks of color (A) and 7 of color (B).
  • It’s a bit tricky to count the single rows of the Up and Down stitch. Here’s a tip, every 2 rows forms a raised ridge. Count these raised ridges then divide by two to get the number of single rows.
  • If stitch count is not included at end of row it is the same as previous row.
