Crochet Easy Man Scarf Free Pattern

Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you this tutorial on how to crochet an easy man scarf (free pattern). This is a great project for beginners, and is perfect for Autumn and Winter. The last time I crocheted a man scarf was last year. Last year’s crochet man scarf has been super popular, especially in the times leading up to Christmas. I wanted to create a new man scarf pattern in time for the colder months and Christmas season.

The video tutorial for this project can be found here:

Crochet Easy Man Scarf Free Pattern: The Inspiration

As I said above, I do love to create at least one man crochet scarf design every year. I really enjoy making these, as they are usually different to what I usually crochet and design. Indeed, I enjoy the crochet project because usually men designs are simpler than women projects. Two years ago I made the Alpine Stitch Scarf, this crochet project was also super popular.

These easy crochet scarves are perfect for the Christmas season. They are fast and enjoyable crochet projects to make, and look amazing too. Let me know if you like to crochet scarves or accessories as Christmas presents.

This is a very easy scarf for beginners

The stitch I used for this project is a knit look stitch. I love this stitch so much, as it looks very elegant. I have used this stitch often: this easy and delicate twist headband looks stunning and yet is so simple to make using this easy stitch. This knit look stitch is original too, and I find I like the fact that you can crochet this knit look stitch so easily.

This crocheted scarf is both elegant and simple. The knit look stitch is crocheted row after row, with a simple 2 row repeat pattern. A simple SC edging is then added to this project to add a more finished look. This crochet scarf does have a tendency to curl, so I would recommend blocking your scarf is that is something you prefer. Personally, I don’t mind the curling, so I haven’t blocked it.

Crochet Easy Man Scarf Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this project, I have used Stylecraft Special Aran in shade Mocha. This is a great yarn for this type of project, as it is not too fine, and yet not too chunky either. It creates an elegant and fine crochet scarf, and can be worn in the Autumn too, as it is not excessively warm like a chunky scarf could be.

This scarf makes a great Christmas gift

This is also a yarn that I had on hand. Indeed, this is now the time of transition between Spring and Summer crochet yarns, and Autumn Winter ones. I have to admit I have not yet gone through my yarn stash to make an inventory. I had purchased a chunky yarn for this project, but I did not like the effect of that yarn at all. In the end, I used this yarn as I had quite a few skeins in my stash ready to crochet with.

Stylecraft Special Aran is a great yarn because it isn’t very expensive, but is very good quality. I have made many projects using this yarn, including The Snow Princess Hat and The Sweet Lilac Cardigan.

If you live in the US or Canada, you can substitute this yarn with Paintbox Simply Aran yarn. You can also substitute with Red Heart Super Saver Aran yarn, or any Aran/Medium 4 yarn.

Pair of scissors

A tapestry needle

To begin

To start, make a slip knot.

Ch 30

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.

Front facing loop
Place your HDC through the front facing loop at the bottom of the stitch

Row 3: Ch 1, turn your work, HDC into the back loop only of each HDC until eor (see photo).

back loop only
Place your HDCs into the back loop only of the stitches for this row

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 5-176: Alternate rows 2 and 3 until you reach row 176, or until you are satisfied with length of project.

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. In the corner, place 2 SC, then place a SC all along the first side of the scarf. Make sure you space the SC evenly, so as to not β€œtighten” the scarf. Once you reach the next corner, place 2 SC, then place a SC along the second side of the project until you reach the next corner. Place 2 SC into the corner, and then place SC all across the top of the project (which is also the beginning chain of scarf). Slip stitch to first ch to close off round.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Optional: Block your project to avoid β€œcurling”.
