Crochet Scarf with Fur Muffs

For the past year, I’ve been secretly trying to figure out how to make a crochet scarf pattern with fur yarn. After a few disastrous attempts, I found a really fun pattern on Etsy that featured a tartan scarf with fur muffs on the end, and I was in LOVE. This crochet scarf with fur muffs is my version, and I think it came out nicely!

Whether you love it or hate it, faux fur yarn crochet projects are trending this year! I’ve seen faux fur on vests, as well as fur pom poms on hats, fur trimmed boot toppers, and more! As some of you may have guessed, I have a serious addiction to fur yarn.

So why do I love this scarf so much? The fur trim actually doubles as a muff, which is just a fun word for an open pocket designed to keep your hands warm. So clever, right? Now, I’ve chosen to leave mine unlined because I live in Florida, but it would be very simple to sew in some fleece to help block the wind if you live somewhere truly cold.

  1. Lion Brand Romance yarn has been discontinued, is there another faux fur that you can recommend?

    1. Hi Susan!

      I really like LB Fun Fur, it has a really similar weight, but it’s not quite as soft. Lots more fun colors though! Some of my blogger friends really like a fur yarn by James C. Brett, I believe? Really, the pattern is so versatile that you could substitute just about any 5 weight fur yarn and have it work out ok. The new Lion Brand Go for Faux might get a bit more bulky, but it’d be worth experimenting with if you like fur yarn that much anyway. 🙂

      They discontinued it while I was editing this pattern, LOL! My eternal struggle.

      Happy hooking,
      Katie

  2. Clever idea, but the scarf should be much wider–at least the same width as the fur “muff.” Additional width will also add additional warmth, especially with this open stitch. Thanks for the idea to play with!

    1. Hi Joy!
      This scarf actually is about as wide as the muff is- it’s just a nice knit-like ribbing, so it has a bit of a curl to it. I could have steam blocked or pressed it out, but I like my photos to be as true to life as possible! 🙂 But happy experimenting! There’s definitely more room for improvement, and I can tell by your thoughtful reply you’re going to end up with an absolutely luxurious scarf.

      Happy crocheting!
      Katie
