Free Crochet Pattern Men’s Scarf

Sometimes a simple stitch is just the most beautiful option. I made quite a few gauge swatches with other stitches, but they did not give the result I was looking for (a neat scarf for a real gentlemen). Until I tried this super simple stitch, where the combination of the 3 colors I used turned out great. Would you also like to make a gentleman happy with this scarf? Below you will find the crochet pattern and video tutorial.

Stitches and Abbreviations

Special Stitch ‘Half Double Crochet in the Third Loop’

In the video (below) you can clearly see how to crochet this stitch, but I’ll briefly describe what it entails. It is really very simple, so don’t let this stitch hold you back. When you turn your work after crocheting a row of half double crochet stitches, you will see an extra loop under the stitch where you would normally insert your hook. This extra loop is named the Third loop. You will work a half double crochet in that loop instead of the usual stitch.

Measurements

  • The scarf measures 1.85 cm x 16 cm
  • Gauge: 15 stitches = 10 cm and 14 rows = 10 cm
  • You can easily adjust this scarf to a different size. You can crochet this scarf with any number of stitches.

Crochet Pattern Men’s Scarf

Row 1 – Color A

Because the rows of this scarf are very long, it is important not to crochet the first row too tightly. Otherwise, your scarf will pull more on one side. That is why I recommend using a chainless foundation (option 1). If you don’t to start with a chainless foundation row, you can choose option 2.

Option 1: Start with a chainless foundation of 297 hdc. Turn. (this option is explained in the video)

Option 2: Ch 299 with a 5.0 mm crochet hook. Continue with a 4.5 mm crochet hook. 1 hdc in the 3rd ch. 1 hdc in each of the next ch. Turn.

Row 2 – Color B

Ch 1, 1 hdct in the first stitch. 1 hdct in each of the next stitches to the end of the row. Turn.

Row 3 – Color C

Ch 1, 1 hdct in the first stitch. 1 hdct in each of the next stitches to the end of the row. Turn.

Row 4 – Color A

Ch 1, 1 hdct in the first stitch. 1 hdct in each of the next stitches to the end of the row. Turn.

Rows 5 – 22

Repeat rows 2-4.

I ended with the same color as I started. Fasten off and weave in ends.
