I made my sample in Lion Brand Mandala #3 weight yarn. This yarn is a 100% acrylic yarn with a soft hand and beautiful self striping colors.
Of course, you could choose from a wide variety of yarns for this scarf and frankly you could use any weight, by changing up the hook and the starting chain to adjust sizing.

For the Aster Pocket Scarf I wanted a simple stitch pattern that would not compete with the color changes. I chose an easy two row repeat that has some texture and interest, but allows the yarn to show through too.
I’ve noticed that wraps and scarves with pockets seem to be all the rage, so I added some big roomy pockets to the bottom of this scarf. I made my scarf an average length, but this pattern is easy to customize length and width. Simply adjust the starting chain up or down in multiples of 4 for the length and add or reduce repeats of Rows 2 and 3 for changes to the width!
I created the pockets by adding rows of single crochet on the end, then folding it up and closing up the sides to form a pocket. And, because I like details, I also gave the top of the pocket a decorative edge that is not only pretty, but helps to reinforce the edge so that it doesn’t stretch out and gap.
If you don’t want the pockets, simply adjust the length to your liking and add fringe to the ends, or leave them plain. Have fun!
