Here’s a nice mix of different scarves you can crochet, some are unisex and work well for both men and women while others are more lacey and feminine. I also made a separate list for cowls and neck warmers plus added a vintage head scarf pattern (you’ll find those at the bottom). If you’re looking for some that are knit, see this project page here.
Ribbed: Made with a beautiful variation of a hdc stitch that feels nice and is quick to make up. Basic tutorial (easy to figure out).
Soft As Lamb: It’s light & fluffy and has a nice drape due to using a larger hook size than called for with worsted weight yarn.
Icarus: Finished size measures 4″ x64″ including fringe, after blocking.
Sweet Guy: This is made by combining 3 rows of each color until you get to the middle, 5 rows of grey, and then reversing the order of the colors to the other edge.
Granny’s Skinny: Skill level marked as “Advanced Beginner”. Finished size measures 5″ x 60″.
Ziggy Lace: Use lace weight yarn doubled for this project or you could substitute with 220 yds. of fingering weight yarn instead.
Curlicue: Made with a 6.0mm hook and 8ply/DK yarn. A novelty yarn is used for row 3 to provide some contrast but you can experiment with whatever yarn you like.
Mesh: Made with worsted weight yarn, the stitch used is the the Double Triple Crochet.
Cassia: Made with lace weight yarn and size 4.00mm hook, includes a hand drawn chart if you prefer working with that.
With Curly Fringe: Made with worsted weight yarn and works up quickly with a half-dc stitch. Fringe is worked with 2 strands of yarn.
Zip Line: Stitches used (ch, dc, slst, fpdc, bpdc, shell), needs about 2 skeins of yarn.
Cowls & Neck Warmers
Chunky: Close with a flower pin, or sew on a button that can be worked through the open stitch.
Circle: This will go around your neck twice.
Pink Ribbon: This is worked in ridges and has a sc border, imitating the texture of grosgrain ribbon.
Infinity: Easy to make and uses 2 balls of yarn in color of choice, worked in sc and dc stitches.

This is simple and easy to make; one can be made in a couple of hours. The original was made of 2-ply yarn; one ounce is sufficient to make one. Use size 00 hook. String weight thread would make a very pretty one too; a size 4 or 5 hook is best for this weight of thread.
- Ch 10, dc in third ch from hook and in each ch to end of row. Ch 3, turn, dc in each dc across. Work 5 more rows. Fold piece in half and stitch ends together with sc, ch 3 to turn.
- Into each sc, work 2 dc, drawing loop out about 1/4 inch long, ch 3 to turn. The next row and each following, make 1 long sc, ch 2, until piece measures 9 inches.
- Work another piece to correspond; join wide ends with sc.
- The points or tabs are made alike: begin with first doubled piece and work 9 sc into fold, ch 1, turn. Into each st across, work 2 dc, ch 3, turn, proceed as for center, decreasing at end of each row, by omitting ch 3 between last two sc, then skipping these on next row.
- If worked with a mercerized or string weight thread, begin with a ch of 15 and work 10 rows to form the slot. When the sts are worked into the folded edge to form the tabs, make 14 sc. Work remainder following directions.
