One of the biggest trends right now is the super scarf—epitomized in that now-iconic image of singer and actor Lenny Kravitz wearing a giant, oversized scarf with a gorgeous texture pattern. It’s been a few years in the making, but now super scarves are popping up all over the place, and we have some great patterns for this trend.
Our new fall collection features a few chunky scarf patterns that would be incredibly cozy for the chill winter season. Keiko and Dai from Booklet 378 Berroco Macro are both super long and super cozy in two shades of Berroco Macro.
Giuoco is knit in Berroco Noble, and features a simple texture stitch pattern that could easily be widened and/or lengthened to make a super scarf to knit.
Yew, another new pattern from this year’s collection, is a giant rectangular scarf inspired by fisherman ganseys.
But we have lots more giant scarf patterns in our pattern library! Etruscan, designed by Amy Miller, from Berroco Portfolio Vol 1 uses Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky in a cable and rib pattern to create a cozy scarf. Wood Lily is an easy scarf knitting pattern worked in Berroco Gusto. As beautiful as Thayer is in Berroco Modern Cotton, I think it would make a delightfully cozy super scarf knit up in Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
If you’re looking for free chunky scarf knitting patterns, look no further than Casa Sonia, knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky, or Navarra, knit in Berroco Kodiak (if you can’t find Kodiak, this would also be great in Berroco North Star). Adrift is a great option for anyone who wants in on the trend but doesn’t want an incredibly warm scarf, if you live in a slightly warmer climate—Berroco Fuji is a great warm-weather scarf option, or Berroco Maya could work as well.
