Indigo Bean Scarf: Free Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Crochet scarves are a great way to knock out a quick project that lets you practice new crochet stitches that you have been wanting to try out.

The Bean Stitch is such a fun stitch to work into patterns. It ads a beautiful raised textured stitch that makes a great accent. Using this stitch with the Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn made a great combo.

The Yarn

For this scarf, I used Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn, which is labeled as a medium #4 weight yarn, but it is on the lighter side of that. So if you use a regular #4 medium weight yarn it might turn out a bit wider and longer than what is listed in this pattern.

Since Ferris Wheel yarn is on the lighter side of the #4 weight yarns, a Lightweight #3 yarn could also be an option, but I did not get to test that out so the sizing could be smaller if you go with that type of yarn.
