The Ferris Wheel Boho Granny Square Scarf is a free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home!
This granny square scarf is a match to the Ferris wheel Granny Square Hat which is also a free pattern on the blog.
Featuring simple granny squares at the bottom edges of the scarf with the beginner friendly Moss or Linen Stitch single crochet + chain stitch rows added to the scarf. You can check out my photo & video tutorial for the Moss Stitch on the blog and remember to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you never miss a new video.
Made with the ombre style self-striping Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn* which takes all of the color guesswork away! One of my favorite self-striping yarns because it is super soft and comfy.

I made my scarf from two panels so that the stitches would fall in the same direction on both sides of the scarf and then seamed the panels together. However, you could certainly just make one large panel and sew the last two granny squares on at the end. Completely up to you! I made my scarf to be fairly long at 81″ as I wanted to be able to wrap around my neck and yet still have some length.
I also love adding fringe to my projects and I think the long fringe really adds a special touch to the scarf but obviously it is completely optional as well.

Notes about pattern:
- Scarf is made from two identical panels sewn together. I chose to make 2 panels so that both sides of the scarf have the same appearance from the front. If you were to make one long scarf, the stitches are upside down on the opposite side. However, you could certainly choose to make one long scarf instead and sew the granny squares to the other end of the scarf. There would be no need to make two panels.
- 1 panel starts with 2 granny squares sewn together with main body of scarf panel crocheted on top of the two squares.
Cluster = group of 3 dc stitches
