*This free pattern is for a keyhole crochet scarf for the fall. This pattern is made using single and double crochet stitches as well as Brava yarn from WeCrochet. It displays a pumpkin and a fall leaf on the pocket of the scarf.*

I love functional crochet patterns. Anything that has multiple different purposes or usage are my favorite to design and crochet. So when I first designed these fun pumpkin and leaf squares I knew I wanted to make something special with them.

It was perfect to use them for a scarf. But I didn’t want a traditional scarf. Although you can easily turn this pattern into one, by making the long rectangle longer and adding the squares to either side of the rectangle.

I did want to make a keyhole scarf which is a scarf that has a loop to pull it through so it hangs in front of your chest and keeps you warm. It’s less bulky than traditional long scarves.

But I also wanted pockets…

## Keyhole Scarf Patterns with Pockets

So to make it fun, since we all love pockets, I sewed the leaf and pumpkin square to the keyhole scarf to create 2 pockets – one in the front and one in the back.

You can use these pockets for whatever you like. But here are a few ideas what I will be using the pockets for when it gets cold:

- storage for my phone and keys
- hide candy and treats
- my crochet hook and notions
- leftover yarn scarps
- make up
- tissues

What else can we use these pockets for?

## Intarsia Crochet for Crochet Pockets

Intarsia Crochet is similar to tapestry crochet. Both change colors in crochet one stitch at the time, but with tapestry crochet you carry your yarn with you, while you drop the yarn color not in use with intarsia crochet.

That means Intarsia Crochet usually uses yarn bobbins and also has a cleaner finish, as you will not see any colors bleeding through which might happen with tapestry crochet.

So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet this cute pattern.

## How to crochet the Fall Scarf with Pockets

### Materials you will need

**WeCrochet’s Brava worsted yarn**in these color:- About 1/4 of a skein of Paprika (Substitute: darker orange or red)
- About 1/4 of a skein of Orange

- Only a small amount of Grass (any green, but darker is better)
- 1 full skein of Clarity (Substitute: any light blue, white or cream)

NOTE: Aim to use the colors mentioned in worsted weighted yarn ❤️

- Bobbins (can be clothing pins, or anything you can use to wrap yarn around)
- I used
**these AMAZING BOBBINS from WeCrochet**(highly recommend all the sizes!)

- I used
- 4.0mm hook -> I used
**Furls Crochet Odyssey Hook** **scissors****tapestry needle**

**Get my favorite YARN BOBBINS from WeCrochet HERE**

#### Can I use a different yarn?

Yes, but I suggest sticking to the colors mentioned above. Also, I suggest using worsted weighted yarn. But do not mix yarn weights. Keep all the yarn weight the same. **WeCrochet’s Brava yarn** is very affordable and perfect for this project!

But it’s an ideal project as a yarn stash buster. Use leftover yarn you have. Not much is needed! Only one color (neutral color) uses almost a full skein.

#### What colors should I pick?

It’s best to aim for the colors I mentioned above. I provided a few substitute colors you can pick from.

#### Why do I need bobbins?

Bobbins are to wrap yarn such that you can use them easily when changing colors while you crochet. It makes the crochet project cleaner looking and reduces yarn tangles and colors to peek through in the project as you don’t carry the yarn all the time.

I suggest having a few on hand. I used about 6-8 bobbins.

Bobbin substitutes if you don’t have the **highly recommended WeCrochet ones**:

- sticks
- clothes pins
- empty paper towl rolls
- any other bobbins

### Gauge

13 dc stitches x 7 rows = 4 square inches

### Size

39 x 7 inches

__Crochet Leaf Square Pocket__

__Crochet Leaf Square Pocket__

Using all sc stitches and ideally, bobbins for the yarn to make the color changes easier, crochet the following square.

Start with a chain of 29.

I only carried yarn when the color needed was close by, otherwise, I used bobbins to switch colors.

Change colors during the last loop when crocheting a single crochet. Meaning, the stitch before the color change is made like this: insert hook into stitch, yarn over (2 loops on your hook), NOW finish the stitch with the color the next stitch needs to be (yarn over with new color and pull through).

Need help with WEAVING IN YOUR ENDS without them coming undone??

### Crochet Scarf

Using the light blue yarn, ch 24 (may need more or less depending on your tension – measure after the first row is made and make sure it’s the same width as the squares).

R1: in the 2^{nd }ch from the hook, 1 atc, then 1 dc in each st, turn

R2: 1 atc, 1 dc in each st, turn

Repeat R2 until you have 39 inches in length (feel free to make it shorter or longer), then do not cut yarn yet.

To make the keyhole, ch 2, slip stitch to the first stitch of the last row made (creates a round), then turn, and crochet 2 sc over the chains made, slip stitch to the last st made of the last dc row crocheted.

Fasten off and weave in your ends

### Adding the Pockets to the Fall Scarf

Make sure you wove in all your ends of the leaf and pumpkin square first.

Lay the pumpkin square on top of the beginning section (opposite of the keyhole) and place the leaf square on the other side. It’s a sandwich having the leaf square on the bottom, scarf in the center, and pumpkin square on the top.

Now sew around the 3 edges of the sandwich creating pockets for the squares on each side of the keyhole scarf.

I sewed the sandwich together using the running stitch, but you can use any method you like. Even sc and slip stitches will work.

Need a video to show how to sew the pockets?

Fasten off and weave in your ends.
