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.

Gauge / Finished Size
Gauge is not crucial to this project. Finished scarf measures 5’ long excluding fur trim, which will be made to match the width of your hand on either end.
Turning chains do NOT count as a stitch.
With Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn and smaller hook:
Row 1: FHDC 190.  (alternately, Ch 192, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each st across.)
Row 2: Ch 2, turn; working through 3rd loops, hdc in each st across. 
Row 3: Ch 2, turn; working through the back loop only, hdc in each st across. 
Row 4-17: repeat Rows 2-3 seven more times.
With Lion Brand Romance (and complementary colored yarn held double if desired), make one on each short end of the scarf.
Row 1: Make a slip knot, then work a standing DC in the corner of the scarf, dc in each row end across. 
Row 2: Ch 2, turn; dc in each st across. 
Row 3-17: Repeat Row 2 until the fur yarn is twice as long as the width of your hands.
Row 18: Slip stitch to the base of the edge of the scarf to join into a tube.
Repeat on other end of scarf.
Weave in all ends securely. Block as desired.
