Easy Free Crochet Amigurumi Scarf Pattern and Tutorial

​Even crochet toys and dolls need to keep warm from the winter chill so this week I’m sharing a simple pattern using basic crochet stitches to create a scarf for amigurumi toys.  My free amigurumi scarf pattern is a quick project that is easy to customize with different colors and I’ve included a step-by-step video tutorial to make this pattern even more accessible for beginner crocheters.

This project uses only single crochet stitches (or double crochet stitches if you prefer the UK terms).  Other than a single color change, this project has a simple repeat row and doesn’t require any special techniques.  

It’s so quick and easy, you’ll want to make them for all your crochet toys.

What To Know Before Getting Started With This Amigurumi Scarf For Beginners

What makes this the perfect project for beginners is that we use basic stitches to create our crochet scarves for our dolls.  We create a long foundation chain and then the entire piece is crocheted using single crochet stitches to create a long rectangle.  

We will change colors once to add a bit of visual interest but if you would prefer not to add a new color, you can ignore the color change and continue on in a single color.

This project is a great way to practice basic techniques while still creating something super cute that kids will love to play with.  

My daughter has asked for crochet scarves for all of her Pokemon toys and this simple crochet scarf pattern is so quick to make, it is really hard to say no.

Want to Adjust the Size of this Scarf?

​At the end of this pattern, I’ve included instructions for adjusting the size of this scarf to fit any crochet toy. So if you need to make your winter scarf for your toy longer or shorter, you’ll have the tools in order to adjust it.

Special Stitches and Techniques:

  • Invisible Finish/Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Skip a stitch and place the tapestry needle through the top of the next stitch from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST worked under the back loop of the stitch and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

  • Single Crochet (SC) Join: With a slip knot already on the hook, insert hook into the designated stitch. YO and pull up a loop.  YO and pull through both loops on the hook. View the SC Join tutorial here.

Finished Size:

  • To fit Advent Adam & Addy dolls – 10” tall dolls


  • Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square


  • These clothing and accessory patterns are designed to fit my Advent Adam and Addy dolls.  Gauge is important for ensuring that your doll clothes fit your doll appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout each project.  Using the same yarn line and hook throughout each project can also assist with minimizing gauge/tension changes.

  • For a cleaner SCDEC on pieces worked in continuous rounds, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each ST rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease.  Check out my invisible decrease tutorial on to see it done.

  • For pieces worked in turned rows, use a normal SCDEC stitch instead of the invisible decrease.

  • Colour changes are done using the last YO of the previous stitch (except where otherwise indicated).

Cut 16 – 4” long pieces of yarn in Colour G and 4 – 4” long pieces of yarn in Colour B.  Holding two strands of yarn in the same colour together, fold them in half lengthwise.

*With the RS of the scarf facing you, insert your crochet hook through the end of the short edge of your scarf (from back to front) in a row that matches the colour of yarn you are using for your tassel and grab the mid-point of your folded yarn bundle. 

Pull it through the fabric to the wrong side until you have a loop large enough to fit the tails of your yarn bundle through the loop. Insert the tails through the loop (tuck your yarn tails from the project in with the fringe so you don’t have to weave in any ends) and pull the tails tight. 

Repeat from * for each tassel, attaching 4 tassels in Colour G to each end of the blue sections of the scarf and one tassel to each end of each section in Colour B.
