Crochet Easy Man Scarf Pattern
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you a tutorial on how to crochet an easy man scarf. This is a great crochet project, and can be a perfect project for a gift. Easy and fun to make, this crochet stitch has a distinct “knit like” vibe to it. This makes it even more unusual and beautiful.

Crochet Easy Man Scarf Pattern: the inspiration
I have wanted to crochet a new man scarf pattern for a long time now. This lovely crochet scarf makes a great Christmas present for your dad, brother or husband. It is masculine yet light weight, making it perfect for every man. The stitch used is very fine, and has a clear knit look to it. This makes this crochet scarf look even more special and refined.
I love a crochet knit like stitch. Indeed, I think they look so special and pretty, and give a very defined look to any crochet project. I used this stitch last year to crochet an easy feminine headband with a twist. This beautiful crochet project is also very easy to make, and also creates perfect and quick Christmas gifts for your loved ones!
Crochet Easy Man Scarf Pattern: the yarn
Last year I released the the classic and masculine man scarf, which was a huge success. The Masculine man scarf from last year is crocheted with chunky yarn, and uses the Alpine stitch. It is super easy and beautiful, so don’t forget to check it out! You can never have too many men scarf patterns this time of year.
This year’s man scarf is slightly finer and defined. Firstly, it is crocheted with Aran weight yarn, not chunky yarn. I used Stylecraft Special Aran yarn in shade Mocha. This can be substituted with Paintbox Simply Aran yarn, or any other Aran/Medium 4 yarn of your preference. This is why this is such a great project, because it so versatile and adaptable to your needs.
The best part is, if you switch colors, this could create a woman’s scarf too. Indeed, this could make a very pretty scarf if you add a simple shell stitch border to it for example. I may well create one myself, as well as a tutorial, for a woman’s scarf using this knit like stitch.
In any case, the simplicity of this scarf and it’s stitch makes it very masculine. So if you have a special man in your life for who you want to create a crochet garment for this Christmas, this is your go to project!
I hope you enjoy this simple crochet man scarf. Please do leave me a comment if you enjoyed this crochet project, and if you have crocheted one. I always love to get your feed back.
