This Easy Loop Scarf is neither a crochet nor a knitting pattern as you do not use a crochet hook or knitting needles. That being said it made it a bit difficult for me to write up the pattern. So I decided to add a video tutorial showing you how to create this amazing Easy Loop Scarf. The secret to this scarf is the Bernat Alize Blanket Ez yarn which is a long yarn strand with loops on them made into a skein to work up with your hands.
When Yarnspirations published the new yarn called Bernat Alize Blanket Ez yarn I knew right away I needed to get this yarn and create something special which turned out to be this beautiful and stylish Easy Loop Scarf. Initially I wanted to make a blanket with it, but then suddenly had this amazing idea to make a scarf with a hole so that you can pull the other part of the scarf through.
Pulling the one end of the scarf through the hole makes the scarf stay in position easier and makes the hole scarf more cozy around your neck and of course look very stylish and in trend.
If you have never tried this yarn before, you should definitely give it a try. Although this is not really a crochet pattern, it is a DIY knitting pattern without using any needles. You are simply putting loops through loops which creates a knitted pattern in the end.

So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this amazing pattern.

- knit stitch with loops
4 rows x 6 knit sts = 4 square inches

The pictures below are snap shots of a swatch to show the basic of the pattern below. See my video below for more details on this pattern.
Row 1: With yarn tail on the right, lay out 12 loops of yarn, make sure to they are all organized and straight
Row 2: Working from left to right, pull the 13th loop through the 12th loop from the back to the front, then the 14th thru the 11th, etc until you finished the row, then wrap the loop yarn around to the other side
Row 3 – 35: Keep pulling loops thru the loops from the previous row (odd rows are from right to left and even rows from left to right)
Creating the hole:
Row 36: Working from left to right, pull loops through the first 4 loops from the previous row; without using the loops on the skein do the following for the next 5 loops on your WIP: pull the 2nd loop through the 1st loop, and then the next loop through that loop, then skip 4 loops from the yarn skein strand, and starting from the 5th loop, pull the loop thru the next loop in this row as you normally do, continue to finish the row (the video is very helpful for this rows)
Row 37: Working from right to left, pull loops thru the loops from the previous row including the 4 skipped loops such that you have a row of 12 loops again (the video is very helpful for this rows)
Swatch showing the hole created:
Row 38 – 48: Keep pulling loops thru the loops from the previous row (odd rows are from right to left and even rows from left to right)
To finish the scarf, working from right to left, pull the 2nd loop through the 1st loop, and then the next loop through that loop, on across all 12 stitches.
Then cut open some of the loops to weave in your ends.
Also, I created a downloadable pdf for you, that has all the pictures separated from this pattern. So you can choose whether you want to print them or not. That can save you a lot of ink in the long run.
