I love the granny square stitch pattern and I was excited to try to create a scarf with it, but I wanted to try a little different take on it, so I came up with this granny square chevron scarf pattern. This one works side to side, so you could actually continue on and make a blanket out of it!
I made this one to be a quick, one skein pattern that you can work up and give as a gift right away or keep for yourself. The scarf is 10 inches wide by 38 inches long – perfect to wrap around once and tuck into a jacket or coat.

How to crochet the two stitches in the Granny Square Chevron Pattern
Crochet Granny Square Chevron Scarf Pattern
Row 1 – One sc in second chain from hook, one single crochet in every chain to the end of row, turn
Row 2 – ch 3, skip first 3 sc, [3 dc in next sc, skip next 2 st] 3 times, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next sc, *[skip next 2 sc, 3 dc in next sc] twice, skip next 2 sc, dc3tog in next sc, skip next 4 sc, dc3tog in next sc, [skip next 2sc, 3dc in next sc] twice, skip next 2 sc, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next sc; rep from * until the final section, instead of working the last [3dc, ch 3, 3dc], just work 3 dc and then work 1 dc in last st, turn
Row 3 – ch 3, work 2 dc in the space between the ch 3 and the first dc group, * work 3 dc in each of the next 2 spaces, work a dc3tog in next space, skip the space between the two dc3tog from row below, work a dc3tog in next space, then work 3 dc into next two spaces, then work [3 dc, 3 ch, 3 dc] in next space; repeat from * to end of row, but finish with a 3 dc cluster in last space and then one dc into turning ch space, turn.
Row 4 – ch 3, skip the space between the ch and first dc group, work 3 dc in each of the next 4 spaces, * then work [3 dc, 3 ch, 3 dc] in next space; then work 3 dc in each of the next 2 spaces, work a dc3tog in next space, skip the space between the two dc3tog from row below, work a dc3tog in next space, then work 3 dc into next two spaces, repeat from * to end of row, in last space between the 3 dc group and the last 1 dc work 3 dc, then work 1 dc into the top of the ch 3 from the row before, turn.
Repeat row 3 and 4 to desired width.
I wanted to use my whole roll, so I just kept going until I ran out of yarn, which ended up just past the end of one row.
Tips and Other Ideas
- You could totally work this in stripes with different yarns and it would look awesome too!
- Want a lapghan? Just keep crocheting more rows and you will get there!
- This pattern works in multiples of 35 sts +1, and adding 12 to the foundation chain. So, just keep adding 35 sts to my pattern to make it longer.
