The Ardara Super Scarf is an oversized super-chunky scarf adorned with cables and texture. The free crochet pattern for adult sized cable scarf is shared, below, and the premium pattern includes four sizes from adult to child.

When I designed this super scarf, I was wanting to come up with a design that made a real statement. Something that says, don’t miss me! And this scarf doesn’t disappoint in that department.

The super chunky textures, cable, and extreme length make this my go-to scarf when I want to make a gift for a fashion-loving friend or that friend who is always cold. The weight and warm of this scarf make it feel like a real luxury. You’re going to love making it and they’re going to love receiving it!

    Hi there- there is no row 5 in your pattern – please can you advise.
    Thank you so much – I can’t wait to try this out for my daughter who lives outside of Chicago – she really battles with the cold and the snow coming from warm and sunny Queensland in Australia.
    Many thanks – have a great day !

    1. Linda, Thank you so much for letting me know! It was an oversight on my part and has been fixed. I’m so sorry for the confusion – it was simply a numbering error so there wasn’t actually a line missing from the pattern so it should be all set now. Wow, I’m sure Chicago must be quite an adjustment for your daughter! I hope she loves her scarf. Pam
