Free Crochet Pattern ~ Spiral Net Ruffle Scarf

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may receive a commission if you make a purchase using these links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

This boa~type scarf is crocheted in the round creating a great spiraling ruffle. With some practice it works up in under an hour. It makes a fun gift and is great for craft sales!

Yarn: use any net yarn ~ one full skein

Hook: 4.00mm (or whatever size is comfortable for you, as it does not affect gauge)

Gauge: there is none, net yarn creates its own gauge

Notions: sewing needle and thread to finish ends

For those of you who like video patterns, here you are:

For those of you who prefer written patterns:

To start off, take a look at the yarn. The top section of yarn is net. The size of the net may vary from brand to brand, but it is still net. There is a small, sometimes decorative, boarder along the bottom of the yarn. For this pattern, we will be working in just the very top holes of the net. You will be working with every other top loop throughout pattern.

First, tie and overhand knot at the beginning of the yarn. Insert your hook into the top loop closest to the knot.

*Skip one loop, pick up next loop, and pull through, creating a chain, rep from *5 more times.

Not counting the loop on your hook, there will be 6 chains. Fold work away from you, creating a circle, and insert hook into the back of the first ch, skip a loop and pick up the next loop, pull through all loops on hook (sl st made). *Sl st into back of next st, remembering to skip a loop each time. Rep from * until only a few inches remain. Every once and a while, check to be sure there are still 6 stitches in your circle (not counting the one on your hook.) Pull last few inches of yarn through last loop on hook. Tie a knot.

Clip each end to about an inch after the knot. Use needle and thread to sew down the last stitch of the scarf so that it does not unravel.

Give, sell, or wear and enjoy!

    • I do not recommend trying to print anything directly from this blog. I have provided a link at the bottom of every pattern to the Craftsy listing for the pattern with a printer~friendly PDF. I just checked the PDF and it is in black. Are you using that to print, or are you trying to print it straight off the blog?

  1. Do you have a pattern for a crocheted Christmas stocking? Or can you tell me where to get one? Thank you so much for your patterns.

  2. Looking forward to trying this one. I have knitted several of these scarves and always thought about trying one in crochet. Now I don’t have to think how to do it!
    Thank you.

  3. Your printer friendly version does not include any instructions. It has the Category, materials, etc. and “Pattern Description:
    I love these net ruffle scarves, but the single crochet in rows variation takes too long, and the draw through a bunch of loops variation leaves a flat edge. I wanted a quick spiral, and this is what I came up with!
    This boa~type scarf is crocheted in the round creating a great spiraling ruffle. With some practice it works up in under an hour. It makes a fun gift and is great for craft sales!” But no words about how to make it. The video was great, but I obviously can’t print that. Please let me know when it is fixed. Thank you.

  4. I tried to do the knitted one and still have it on the needle as as I could not figure out how to end it right. Finding this on Hooked on Crochet is going to help me so much to finish some scarfs I was trying to make 2 Christmas’s ago. Thanks so much for coming up with this pattern and making it free as well.

    • I am so glad it is helpful to you! I find the knitted ones take me too long. If you have a knitted one that is finished, but still on the needles, you can always string a piece of yarn through the loops, and tie it well. Then even use needle and thread to sew it together. I know it is never fun to have to take it all out!

  5. I like the way this is done BUT it would have been helpful to me IF you had used a larger hook and a close up of the stitches as you were going around and around and around…

    • I’m back watching vid again trying to catch onto this -it’s taking much much longer than an hr but am determined to learn this method as all I have ever made are the gathering of the loops which is super fast but does not give the nice spiral effect. I noticed you keep saying go in the BACK of next stitch so I was inserting hook around into the back when in actuality you are going into the front of the next stitch/loop — I do not see you putting hook into the back. Do we have our backs and fronts mixed up?

      • It is possible that you are calling what it traditionally referred to as the back loop the front loop instead. As it is worked in a small round I can see how that could happen. The back loop is the one on the outside of the circle. Though it really doesn’t matter if you use the front or the back loop, as long as you only go through one.

  6. I hate to be defeated but this is too tedious for me…the tiny round circle of 6 loops is constantly being bunched up in the circle with the other loops, too hard to see what’s what…guess I’m back to gathering..

    • I’m so sorry it wasn’t working for you. It is very fidgety at first. The first one I made took a while, but then I had the feel of it and they take me less around an hour now. Some of the net yarns are easier than others as well, depending on the size of the holes.

  7. tried to down load the direction, but my computor said that there was a virus in it and refused to download it, and also advised me not to over ride the computors decision………………….

    • There is a link IN the text of the pattern, at the bottom, that says “To find a printer friendly version of this pattern (text only, in black, no photos) click here.” Click on that. You must have clicked on an ad. My printer friendly PDFs are hosted on Craftsy, which is a very reputable site.

      • I crocheted a stitch in every chain stitch and stayed in the round. do you go back and make a new chain every 6 stitches? I didn’t try that, but wondered if that was something I was supposed to assume to do.

  8. Hi, Jessie;

    I just used your link to Craftsy. Wanted to get the pattern for your “one hour spiral scarf”, (spiral net) and this is what came up:
    I tried a second time and got the same thing. I would really like to have that pattern; it is so unique (and sexy). Would likely make a bunch of them in a variety of colours. Please make that pattern available to your fans.
    Thank you.

    • Craftsy no longer hosts indie patterns, it looks like you found a link I missed getting off my site. The pattern is still in this post, along with a video, so you can still make the scarf.
