This beautiful and simple crochet pocket scarf works up quickly and is a great scrap project.  Made from 5 identical double crochet triangles that are joined together using an interesting mesh crochet join – without sewing!

Bring Back Spring Crochet Scarf design details

I am definitely a pocket person.  My hands are always cold and yet I frequently forget to wear gloves or they end up being too much of a hassle so I skip them.  A great reason to have pockets handy! 

Spring here in Kansas can be interesting to say the least.  A couple of weeks ago we had a few days of 85+ degree temps and it felt like summer.  Tomorrow will be a high of 27 with arctic wind chills and the possibility of 4-8″ of snow!  There is a saying here – if you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes 😂

This pocket scarf uses KnitPicks Comfy Color Mist* which is a beautiful cotton blend yarn that is light and breathable with a lot of lovely drape.  And, with the addition of the mesh join details it creates a more open and airy feel to this lovely pocket scarf which makes it perfect for changeable spring weather!

This fun design features 5 identical double crochet triangles that are joined together with a unique mesh join. Then the triangles at each end of the scarf are folded up and seamed to create the pockets.  You then end up with a perfect rectangle shape!

However, if you choose to skip the pockets altogether that is perfectly fine. This scarf would make a lovely long scarf or wrap without pockets.

I wanted the triangles themselves to be beginner-friendly so I designed a one-row repeat made with double crochet stitches only.  This triangle makes a lovely scarf all on its own as well.  I have the complete video tutorial for the triangle on the blog and you can also find it on YouTube.

Then once the 5 triangles are finished, they are joined together with a unique mesh join – no sewing involved!  I have the complete photo and video tutorial for this fun join method on the blog or on YouTube.  However, you could certainly skip the mesh join and seam the triangles together.  This would make your scarf shorter but would be perfect if you are skipping the pockets!

Once your triangles are all joined together you will fold up the ends to create the pockets.  I have a complete video tutorial for how to fold and seam the pockets for the Bring Back Spring Scarf on this page or you can find it on YouTube as well.  Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified whenever I post a new video.

At the corner work 3 stitches and then continue working sc stitches along edge to close pocket.  Follow arrows in below diagram.
