Chunky scarves are very quick to crochet thanks to the large size of the yarn and hook that you use. That’s why a bulky scarf or cowl is the perfect pattern to crochet when you’re crushed on time.

A chunky scarf makes a lovely gift for a friend or family member, but it is also a must-have on your craft show table!

What is the best yarn for a chunky scarf?

Chunky scarves are crocheted using bulky (5) or super bulky (6) yarn. Here are the best chunky yarns to try:

How Long Should a Crochet Scarf Be?

A regular crochet scarf is normally between 60″-70″ (150-180 cm) long and 6.5″-7″ (16.5-18 cm) wide, but you can make a maxi scarf by going up to 100″-120″ (254-300 cm) in length.
