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.
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.
If you're looking for a fast, easy, beginner-friendly, gift-worthy, no-brainer project, this pretty neck warmer is a good pattern to consider. My project sample only took an hour to crochet! And as far as the crocheting goes, it doesn't get any easier than this.
This design is made using double crochet stitch. The pattern is written out without any abbreviations, making it easy for total beginners to understand.
These scarves look fancy, don't you think? But they're actually quick and easy to crochet, thanks to easy stitches plus a lovely textured chunky-weight yarn. There are several different versions of this pattern available:
- Christmas crochet scarf pattern
- Valentine crochet scarf pattern
- Fourth of July crochet scarf pattern
Feel free to adapt this design to come up with your own variations as well. This pattern is easy to re-color, and the yarn used -- Sprout organic cotton by Classic Elite -- comes in a delightful color palette.

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.
This delightful scarf is lacy without being overly "froofroo." The lace is made using beginner-friendly stitches, making for an accessible first crochet project.
I re-worked the grid lace scarf to create a version that does not lean so much to one side. There are other differences too; this version is a bit weightier and not quite as lacy as the first version.
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.
