What is a Pocket Scarf?

A pocket scarf is a versatile and functional accessory that combines the elements of a scarf and pockets. It typically resembles a regular scarf, but it has one or more pockets integrated into the design. These pockets can be located at the ends of the scarf or along the length, and they serve as handy storage spaces for small items like keys, phones, lip balm, or gloves.

Pocket scarves are not only fashionable but also practical, as they allow you to keep your hands warm and store essentials conveniently without the need for a separate bag. They come in various styles, colors, and crochet or knit patterns, making them a popular choice for chilly weather and outdoor activities. The added functionality and cozy appeal of pocket scarves have made them a favorite accessory for those who appreciate both style and utility.

Skill Level

Beginner. This easy pocket shawl crochet pattern uses basic stitches in basic form and in simple repeats in both rows and rounds. 


Crochet Gauge

Crochet gauge is the number of stitches and rows per inch achieved when crocheting with a particular hook size and yarn. By following the recommended gauge, you can ensure that your pocket scarves will have the correct size and fit. Having the correct gauge is important for this free crochet pattern.

6 rows = 4 inches

15 stitches = 4 inches

Finished Size

To achieve the perfect fit and functionality, your crochet pocket scarf free pattern should ideally be the same length as your wingspan. Your wingspan is the measurement from fingertip to fingertip when your arms are outstretched, and interestingly, it typically equals your height.

So, for ultimate comfort and convenience, we’ve designed this pattern to match your unique wingspan, ensuring a snug and cozy fit. The width of the scarf is 6.5 inches.

  • You are crocheting in the back loops only (blo). This gives the scarves the ribbed look. 
  • The stitch count is indicated at the end of the row or round.
  • The beginning of each row starts with a chain which does not count as your first st (stitch). 
  • You can make your free pocket shawl pattern longer or shorter by adding to or eliminating the last row(s).  
  • The starting chain is the same for all wingspans. It’s the number of rows that will vary by size. Refer to the crochet pocket scarf size chart above.
