Cozy Scarf Ornament: Quick Crochet Gift


Hello! It's December and it's that wonderful time of year, when the weather gets cooler and the beautiful knitted and crocheted layers come out to accessorize every outfit. One of my favorite things to do is to spy all of the crocheted and knitted garments and accessories in the tv shows and or movies, especially the holiday ones, that I'm currently watching. That was the inspiration for today's free beginner, tunisian crochet pattern, those beautiful hand knitted scarves that look oh so cozy, and if I can wrap up and get cozy in one, why not cozy up my ornaments too? Scroll down for the free pattern.


I'm so excited to be the guest designer for today's 24 Days Of Quickies with the incredible and amazing Marly Bird! Scroll down to get your FREE pdf of the Cozy Ornament Pattern, just look for the big blue button below! (My coupon code is good from Dec 9, 2020 10am-Dec 10, 2020 10am) 

And don't forget to head on over and check out all of the other free patterns that she is featuring daily for this fun event! All of the awesome patterns can be made in a day or less!

pin it for later!



The Cozy Scarf Ornament is the perfect quickie make because it's fun, easy, there are so many ways to customize each one and they make wonderful gifts as well as decorations for the tree, garland, wreaths and more!


This beginner friendly Tunisian crochet pattern doesn't even need a special hook for this pattern! A regular crochet hook without a handle works just as good as a special Tunisian crochet hook. This pattern only uses one stitch, the Tunisian Knit Stitch and there is a solid version as well as a color striped version too. 



One of the fun things about this project is that you can easily customize the ornament that you use. Solid color ball ornaments, glittery ball ornaments, clear ones that can be stuffed with yarn pom poms, yarn scraps or even faux fur poms, or you could even use a square or different shaped ornament too if you would like.

Notes, Tips and Tutorials


  • No special hook required! This pattern can easily be worked with a crochet hook that has no handle.

  • This pattern is worked flat with the right side of the work facing.  

  • At the beginning of each row, the first stitch is on the hook and counts as a Tunisian knit stitch.

  • Do not turn your work at the beginning of each row. Each row is worked from right to left (forward pass) and then from left to right (return pass). 

  • Size can be adjusted by adding as many more stitches as you need for the correct width and less or more rows for a shorter or longer scarf.

Alternate Ornament Solutions:


  • Use a pretty ornament that does not need to be filled.

  • Use multi colored or solid colored scrap yarn or even a faux fur pom pom inside the clear ornament instead of a yarn pom pom.

  • Attach the scarf to a gift or other ornament.


How To Work Into The Last Stitch Of The Row:

Tilt the work toward you and look for the last 2 vertical bars at the end of the row (image 1), insert the hook under these last 2 vertical bars (image 2), yarn over (image 3), and pull up a loop. (image 4)

How To Tunisian Crochet




Cozy Scarf Ornament

Please read the notes before beginning this project.


The Ornament:


Use a pom pom maker and scrap yarn of choice to make a pom pom that will fit snuggly inside of the clear ornament.


I used a bulky 5 weight yarn and a size 2.5” pom pom maker to make my pom poms. I wrapped each side of the pom pom maker with the yarn 60 times each and then I trimmed the pom poms to fit.

See notes for other ornament suggestions.


The Scarf Pattern:


Solid Color Version:


R1: Forward Pass: ch 4, and starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, pick up a loop in each ch across. =4

Return Pass: yo and pull through 1 loop on the hook, *yo and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from the * across until 1 loop remains on the hook.


R2: Forward Pass: tks (on the hook) and tks in each st across. =4

Return Pass: yo and pull through 1 loop on the hook, *yo and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from the * across until 1 loop remains on the hook.


Repeat R2 until 11.5” long or the desired length.


Bind Off:


Insert the hook into the next stitch (just like for a tunisian knit stitch), yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook to create a slip stitch. Repeat across. 


Cut the yarn, pull through the last stitch and weave in the ends.


Add fringe or poms if you would like.


Attach the scarf to the ornament with a small amount of glue if you would like.


The End!


Color Striped Version:


With color a:


R1: Forward Pass: ch 4, and starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, pick up a loop in each ch across. =4

Return Pass: yo and pull through 1 loop on the hook, *yo and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from the * across until 1 loop remains on the hook.


R2: Forward Pass: tks (on the hook) and tks in each st across. =4

Return Pass: yo and pull through 1 loop on the hook, *yo and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from the * across until 2 loops remains on the hook, yo with color b and pull through the last 2 loops on the hook to make the color change.


R3: Forward Pass: tks (on the hook) and tks in each st across. =4

Return Pass: yo and pull through 1 loop on the hook, *yo and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from the * across until 2 loops remains on the hook, yo with color a and pull through the last 2 loops on the hook to make the color change.


Repeat R2 and R3 until 11.5” long or the desired length. After the last R3, add another R3 so that the ending and beginning of the scarf has 2 rows of color a.


Bind Off:


Insert the hook into the next stitch (just like for a tunisian knit stitch), yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook to create a slip stitch. Repeat across. 


Cut the yarn, pull through the last stitch and weave in the ends.


Add fringe or poms if you would like.
