Nordic Trails Scarf Pattern

You may wonder about the name- So this Free Crochet Scarf Pattern is actually a new brother to the Nordic Trails Shawl, it came along from the yarn colors and stitch combination and as you may see, I ran out of yarn so the pompom border is only in one side!

Specialty Stitches

Dc3Tog = 3 Double Crochet Stitches together

Yo, insert the hook into the first stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Yarn over, and pull through 2 of the loops. You should now have 2 loops on your hook. Yo, insert the hook into the same stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops on the hook. You should now have 3 loops left on your hook. Repeat those steps one more time, You should now have 4 loops left on your hook. Yo over and pull through all 4 loops to complete the stitch.


  • The pattern is worked in rows
  • Ch1 does not count as St at beginning of each row
  • This pattern uses pattern repeats.
  • You can work this pattern with one color or multiple as you wish- I used a variegated yarn

Bubble Fringe

Insert hook on 1st st, Ch6, Dc3tog on 3rd Ch from hook, Ch3, Dc3tog on top of last Dc3 tog, Che, skip 4 st, Sc in next, and repeat. Think how many bubbles you want to have and decide on the skipped st between. It will depend on the width of the scarf

Work the exact same on the other end.


You can add more repeats to make a longer Scarf

Cut your yarn and weave in the ends.

I recommend blocking the finished Scarf before wearing it!
