This scarf was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. Walking through JoAnn’s, I came across an endcap full of Lion Brand’s Wool Spun yarn in a variety of colorway, two of them being the dark cranberry and cream you see in my scarf. It was like it was meant to be!

It took me a couple times to get the look I wanted. I did originally try to knit a plaid design, but it wasn’t working out so well for me because I need to practice knitting more, plus it was taking too long, so I ripped back, and went with solid granny squares (can never go wrong with grannies!) joined together using my favorite Pull Loop Through Method to give the slanted cream lines.

I worked the width wider than my usual 6” because originally I thought about making this scarf as a super scarf, but when I polled a couple Facebook groups, I found that there weren’t that many super scarf fans, but that most people liked wider scarves, at a normal length (about 60”), so that is what I aimed for in my design.


  • 762 Yards of Chunky Yarn - I used Lion Brand’s Woolspun Yarn - 4 skeins of the Claret colorway, and 2 of the Linen colorway
  • K10.5 / 6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Materials Notes:

Yarn Alternatives: Berroco’s Vintage Chunky.

Woolspun Yarn has been discontinued - shame because it was such a beautiful yarn to work with, and in how it felt to wear. Lion Brand does have two colors left online for purchase, you may find it at your local JoAnn’s (mine still has some for sale), or you can pull any yarn out of your stash, and take gauge. I think Lion Brand’s Scarfie may be similar to the Woolspun, but you may need to go up a hook size.

1st Square measures 3.25” wide
