Crochet Puff Stitch Scarf Pattern Details
The Mandala Pretty Puffs Scarf is a top-down triangle scarf made with all puff stitches – so squishy soft!
I am using the Interlocking Puff Stitch for this easy crochet scarf. I have previously used this stitch for the Remember Me Beanie as well as the Mandala Pretty Puffs Blanket. This puff crochet stitch is worked a little differently than a standard puff in that you are starting it with two unfinished extended single crochets then pulling up two tall loops to create the puff. This gives the puff a little unique twist.
You may want to check out the complete photo and video tutorial for this stitch which can be used for so many different projects. However, I also have a complete video tutorial to help you through this scarf as well. You can find the tutorial for this scarf below.

A simple one-row repeat makes this scarf reversible, too!
I am using Lion Brand Mandala* which is a light #3 weight self-striping yarn. I love the long ombre color changes in this yarn and it works perfect with this stitch pattern! However, you could certainly use solid colors or raid your stash for your perfect color palette! I have another go-to yarn that would work perfectly with this pattern – Lion Brand Ferris Wheel.
Using two cakes of the Mandala yarn yielded finished dimensions of 49” wingspan x 24” tall not including tassels. If you want a larger scarf grab another cake of yarn!
For a fun extra I added a tassel to each end of my scarf to add a touch of boho charm. Completely optional! I have made a few tassels in my day and recently found the Clover tassel makers which are really amazing! I don’t have a ton of gadgets or gimmicks in my life but I have found these to be a must! Available in several sizes (I have them all!) so you can make the perfect size every time!

- Scarf is worked top down.
- Stitch count will increase by a total of 2 puff stitches each row.
- The corner ch-1 is in addition to the ch-1 that is worked to close the esc puff stitch so you will essentially be working a ch-2 for the corner space.
- The beginning ch-1 is in addition to the ch-1 that is worked to close the last esc puff stitch of the previous row so you will essentially be working a ch-2 at the end of each row.
- Optional: Place a stitch marker in the corner ch-2 sp and move up each row for easy identification.
Make a MC. (Alternatively, ch 4, sl st in first ch to form a ring)
Row 1: (RS) Ch 1, 4 esc puffs in MC (or ring). Turn. (4)
Row 2: Ch 1, work esc puff in second ch from hook, esc puff in next ch-1 sp, (esc puff, ch 1, esc puff) in next ch-1 sp, esc puff in next ch-1 sp, esc puff in last ch-1 sp (beginning ch-1 from previous row). Turn. (6 puff sts + 1 ch-2 sp)
Row 3: Ch 1, work esc puff in second ch from hook, esc puff in each ch-1 sp to ch-2 corner sp, (esc puff, ch 1, esc puff in ch-2 sp), esc puff in each ch-1 sp to end, esc puff in last ch-1 sp (beginning ch-1 from previous row). Turn. (8 puff sts + 1 ch-2 sp)
Continue repeating row 3 to size desired. Note: If you are concerned with running out of yarn with the two cakes, I would recommend making your tassels to desired size and then using the remainder of your yarn for the scarf.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Tassels (make 2)
Make two tassels by using a 6.5” tall piece of cardboard with 50 – 60 wraps for each tassel.
Attach 1 tassel to each edge of scarf.
