This easy scarf is recommended for total beginners, or for anyone who wants a no-brainer project to work on. The scarf is a classic style in a unisex design; it's appropriate for fall and winter wear, and if you live in an area where spring days are likely to be chilly you'll get even more use out of it.

If you haven't yet learned how to read a crochet pattern, please don't let that stop you from giving this pattern a try. I've written it without using any abbreviations, and I've included detailed instructions to help you get started.

This classic scarf is a guy-friendly design that works well for cold-weather wear; if you crochet it in wool yarn or a similar fiber, it's perfect for use in late fall and dead-of-winter. There's a matching hat pattern too.

Simple Crochet Scarf Pattern -- Easy Enough for Beginners

If you're just getting started with learning how to crochet, this pattern is a good one to consider; you only need to know chain stitches and single crochet to create this simple textured scarf. This is a great pattern to consider even if you're an experienced crocheter, because sometimes you just want to chill out with an easy, relaxing project -- and this definitely qualifies.

This scarf is part of a matching set. You'll also find free crochet patterns for a beanie hat, a headband, and fingerless gloves; the coordinating patterns are all made using the same easy stitch combination, which is known as "moss stitch."

This scarf measures about 4" wide. It's easy to vary the length; you can make your scarf as long or short as you want it to be by crocheting more rows until the scarf is the length you want.

Lace Scarf in Thread Crochet

This delicate, lacy scarf is perfect for dressing up tailored suits, summer dresses, and any other type of outfit that could benefit from a hint of thread crochet. It's also a great layering piece for those transitional days in spring and fall when the air's a bit chilly, but not chilly enough for a heavy scarf.

This scarf is worked completely in single crochet stitch; the interesting contrasts in texture are created because you crochet the design using two different yarn weights.

Lacy Treble Crochet Shell Stitch Scarf Pattern

In the past, I wasn't a fan of the treble crochet stitch, but I changed my mind after discovering the lacy treble shell stitch pattern. This stitch pattern incorporates treble crochet plus chain stitch and half double crochet. It makes full use of the treble crochet's height, yet the trebles don't look spindly, gangly, or awkward as they do when worked in plain rows.

This scarf utilizes the lacy treble shell stitch mirror-imaged to create a perfectly symmetrical design.

As pictured, the scarf is crocheted using three colors of yarn. If you'd rather not mess around with color changes and weaving in bunches of loose ends, you can ignore the color changes and work the scarf in a single solid color.
