Classic Ribbed Men’s Crochet Scarf

My latest design and free pattern on the blog is a chunky crochet scarf for men. It’s simple, ribbed, classic, and look’s totally knitted.

This manly crochet scarf uses a bulky weight yarn and an 8.0 mm crochet hook. It uses only one stitch and can be made in just a few hours.

It makes the perfect cozy warm gift for the man in your life. My husband totally loved this scarf and couldn’t believe it was crochet. I plan on making him a few more in different colors for the wintertime.

A Crochet Men’s Scarf That Looks Knit

Lately, I’ve been into crochet stitches that look like knitting. I just love how you can create a knit effect by simply picking up a crochet hook.

So when I was designing this men’s crochet scarf pattern, I knew that I wanted to incorporate one of these knit-like crochet stitches. My goal for this pattern was to crochet a classic ribbed scarf that was simple and could be worn with anything.

I also wanted it to be very versatile so I just stuck with the one color. It makes the perfect gentleman’s scarf!

The Length of This Men’s Scarf

The length of this chunky men’s crochet scarf is 70 inches long and 6 1/2 inches wide. It’s long enough to be wrapped around twice, but short enough to fit in your jacket comfortably.

How to make a longer crochet scarf?

If you need to adjust the length of a scarf to make it longer or shorter, all you need to do is adjust the number of starting chains. You also need to take count of the multiple for the stitches used in the pattern.

So to make it longer, add additional chains, and to make it shorter, decrease the number of chains.

For this crochet men’s scarf, there is no multiple, so you can start with any chain amount. Once you’ve decided the chain amount then just follow the pattern as is.

The Yarn You’ll Need for This Ribbed Crochet Scarf

For this free crochet scarf pattern, you will need 2 balls of Lion Brand Hue + Me yarn in the color Fatigues. It’s a bulky weight blended yarn that’s made from acrylic and wool.

I loved using this yarn for this pattern and highly recommend it. But you can use any bulky weight yarn for this scarf. I chose to work with a beautiful deep green color, but there is 18 colors total, so you can totally choose a different one. What’s great about this yarn line is that all the colors match beautifully together.

So if you were to make this scarf in two colors, I think it would look very good. What are your favorite colors in this yarn line?

Can I use a foundation sc for the chain and R1 instead of doing two steps?
