Crochet an Easy Men's Scarf - Free Pattern


Ever wanted to crochet a quick men's scarf? So do I!

Most patterns that can be found online are made for women and contain more organic forms and stitches and are worked up vertically. Not this one!


This pattern was designed after studying popular and classical men's scarves in stores and online. They were mostly weaved or knitted horizontally with simple stitches.

That's why for this scarf we're crocheting horizontally, which adds masculinity and simplicity to the whole piece.

The rust colour will be prominent on one side and the black on the other side. When you stretch your scarf, colours will show through. Cool effect, right?


Create your own men's scarf with just using half double crochet(hdc) stitches in back loops only(blo)! The hdc in blo will create a knitted look to your work and make the scarf feel loose, soft and supple.

You'll find that crocheting this project is relaxing and easy to do while watching your favourite tv shows.


I've used alpaca and mix yarn(group A) by Drops but feel free to use whatever yarn you like as long as your crochet hook size matches that specific yarn. Make the scarf as long and wide as you like!
