Crochet Classic Man Scarf Free Pattern
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you this crochet Classic Man Scarf (free pattern). This is a great project for beginners. This man scarf features two different stitches, and I love the look it gives this scarf! The first half is crocheted with a knit look stitch. The second half of the scarf features the Griddle stitch. This gives a lot of texture to this elegant scarf.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet Classic Man Scarf Free Pattern: The Stitches
As stated above, this elegant man scarf features two different stitches. The first stitch used is the knit look stitch. I love this stitch so much! It is the stitch I used to crochet The Easy Man Scarf last year. This scarf project was a huge success, and is also a great man scarf. I also used this knit look stitch for this delicate twist headband I released last week. This crochet stitch is so beautiful and delicate! It is perfect for accessories.
The second half of the scarf features the Griddle stitch. Again, this easy stitch is one of my favorites, and I used it to crochet this feminine Winter headband a few months ago. I also crocheted The Harvest Moon Pocket Shawl with the Griddle stitch. This is a beautiful and versatile stitch that I love so much!
This crochet man scarf was a delight to crochet, and the two different halves of the scarf really elevate an otherwise simple pattern. Once the whole scarf is crocheted, a simple Single Crochet edging is added. This finishes off this project with an elegant touch.
Crochet Classic Man Scarf Free Pattern: The Yarn
For this project, I used James C Brett Marble Chunky yarn. I absolutely love this chunky yarn. It is not only soft, but it’s a very supple chunky yarn, making it easy to crochet with. I absolutely loved crocheting with it. I have used this yarn previously to crochet this Classic Masculine scarf, as well as The Paige Cocoon Shrug. This yarn is very versatile, and so perfect to work with. I absolutely love it so much!
It was really pleasant to crochet this scarf with this yarn, and I really enjoyed it. This yarn features an intricate variegated color that I love. Lots of different colors are available in this range, so it’s perfect if you want to change the color too!
This project is perfect for beginners, and is perfect to crochet Christmas or birthday gifts with. I have made one of these scarves as a Christmas gift, and I know it will be a hit! Let me know if you enjoy this yarn as much as I do.

4” (10 cm)= 7 rows

You will need
1 skein of James C Brett Marble Chunky in shade MC6 (or any other chunky/bulky yarn of your preference)
7 mm crochet hook
A pair of scissors
A tapestry needle
Sl st: slip stitch
DC: Double Crochet (UK Treble Crochet)
HDC: Half Double Crochet (Half Treble Crochet)
SC: Single Crochet (UK Double Crochet)
EOR: End of row
To start, make a slip knot.
Row 1: HDC in 3rd chain from the hook, HDC into each ch until end of row (first ch 2 counts as a HDC)
Row 2: Ch 1 (=turning chain throughout), turn your work, HDC into front facing loop of the bottom of each HDC from previous row (see photo below for more details) until eor, placing your last stitch into the ch 2 from previous row. This front facing loop is not one of the 2 loops at the top of each stitch, but this is the loop which is at the bottom front of the stitch.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn your work, HDC into the back loop only of each HDC until eor (see photo).
Row 4: Ch 1 (=turning chain), turn your work, HDC into front facing loop of the bottom of each HDC from previous row until eor.
Rows 5-7: Alternate rows 2 and 3.
Do not fasten off.
Row 8 (start of the Griddle stitch): ch 3 (=DC), [SC into next stitch, DC into next stitch] until eor, finishing on a Single Crochet.
Row 9-15: Repeat row 8.
Do not fasten off.
Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), turn your work, place a SC into each stitch across until you reach the corner, where you will turn your project perpendicularly so as to work on the next “side” of the scarf. Repeat the process so as to place SC across the 4 different sides of the scarf.
Make sure you space the SC evenly, so as to not “tighten” the scarf. Slip stitch to first ch to close off round.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
