The latest addition to my accessories wardrobe is the playful Bobbi Fringe Scarf.

I’m a sucker for a good adornment on a crochet project. Frisky fringe, playful poms, and energetic tassels really get my going. To make the ultimate fall scarf, I knew fringe had to play a big part. The fringe on the Bobbi Fringe Scarf serves 2 roles.
First, it adds some needed personality to this simple Tunisian crochet scarf. And second, it hides any wonky issues with your foundation and bind-off edges. See, fringe really does make everything better!
TLYC vs. Homespun Yarn
Like most makers, I have a tumultuous history with Lion Brand’s Homespun yarn. As a beginner crocheter, I fell in love with this yarn at the craft store and bought a ton of it without having any idea what I’d make or how to use it. Needless to say, my naivety bit me in the butt not long after.
Long story short, Homespun is kind of a beast to work with. The highly textured nature of this yarn makes it tough to find your stitches and hides just about any stitch pattern you put into it. When designing the Bobbi Fringe Scarf, I knew I’d need to keep the pattern simple and rely more on the shape, colors, and adornments to bring life to this yarn.
I’d like to think I did a pretty decent job. The finished Bobbi Fringe Scarf is long, has great drape, and the color blocking brings a modern twist to this classic yarn. Better yet, it’s the perfect project for beginners. It’s everything you could want in a Tunisian crochet scarf. With a pattern like this, everybody wins!

Bobbi Fringe Scarf Pattern
More of a visual learner? Make the Bobbi Fringe Scarf alongside me with this helpful tutorial video:
ROW 1: With A, ch 27, flip ch to work in the back bumps of the ch, pull up a loop in the back bump of the 2nd ch from hook and each ch across the row, RetP.
ROW 2: Tps 2, tss each st to last 3 sts, tps 2, Lts, RetP.
ROWS 3-30: Repeat Row 2. Cc to B at the end of Row 30.
ROWS 31-90: Repeat Row 2. Cc to A at the end of Row 90.
ROWS 91-120: Repeat Row 2.
Slip stitch loosely in each stitch across the row to bind off. Weave in all ends and steam block to finished dimensions as needed.
MAKE THE FRINGE
Cut 108 18” lengths of color A. Holding 2 strands together, attach fringe to each stitch along the short sides of the scarf. Steam the fringe gently to relax the fibers, then trim the fringe to an even length, about 8.5” long.
Weave in all remaining ends.
Steam block to finished measurements as necessary.
