Easy Crochet Scarf: Zig-Zag Scarf by Judith Swartz

Pattern #1

Zig-Zag Scarf by Judith Swartz

The bright colors used here make for a playful overall design, and is an easy one to customize to your favorite color schemes. This crocheted scarf will put the fun back into any wardrobe and keep you practicing those basic crochet stitches!

Beginner Crochet Scarf: Off the Grid Scarf by Marilyn Murphy

Pattern #2

Off the Grid Scarf by Marilyn Murphy

This scarf is a deceptively simple pattern, featuring an elongated grid when working it horizontally versus vertically. For a completely different look, weave ribbon or other novelties through the grid. This basic design makes for a perfect beginner crochet scarf, and it truly has endless possibilities!

Lace Crochet Scarf: Sweet Lorraine Lace Scarf by Doris Chan

Pattern #3

Sweet Lorraine Lace Scarf by Doris Chan

Named after a loved one’s favorite song, Doris Chan’s versatile lace throw was the inspiration for this beautiful scarf, which adds a hint of sophisticated comfort to any room or outfit. The lace stitch is a variation of the strawberry pattern, an easy-to-remember four-row repeat, with a scalloped side edging made as you go, to minimize finishing.

Crocheting a Scarf: Float Away by Kim Werker

Pattern #4

Float Away by Kim Werker

From the second Kim laid eyes on this yarn, it screamed “waves!” A brief look at her favorite stitch resources and a few dangling rings later; this simple crochet scarf was born. Worked in only seven long rows, it is warm enough for chilly spring nights, yet soft enough to wear against bare skin and has sheen to add some flair to a summer evening stroll.

Crocheted Scarves: Mermaid Scarf by Sandi Wiseheart

Pattern #5

Mermaid Scarf by Sandi Wiseheart

Years ago, a friend of Sandi’s hosted “Mermaid Parties,” gala women-only events where guests arrived in satiny ball gowns, glittering sequin sheaths, and sparkling jewelry fit for under-the-sea royalty. While her original vision for this scarf was too flat, the addition of crochet half motifs down the middle did just the trick forming wavy, lacy layers—it was then that she heard the mermaids singing.

Crochet Scarves with Lace: Crocus Scarf by Laura Rintala

Pattern #6

Crocus Scarf by Laura Rintala

In Colorado (where many of our Crochet Me team members live), spring can be seventy degrees one day and snowing the next. Silk, while not looking as wintry as wool, is luscious next to the skin and warming when the weather changes suddenly. Starting with a simple fan-lace pattern Laura made this openwork crocheted scarf that looks like spring and yet still chases the lingering chill.

Scarf Crochet Patterns: Conch Scarf by Jody Witt

Pattern #7

Conch Scarf by Jody Witt

This easy/beginner crochet scarf creates subtle ruffling and an eye-catching colorwork design that is the perfect complement to your outfit. Chubby shells are worked from the center out, and then framed with a second color for this scrumptious crocheted scarf.

Pineapple Motif Crochet Scarf: Madeline Stole by Sharon Zientara

Pattern #8

Madeline Stole by Sharon Zientara

Exploded pineapple motifs create this wonderful, unique crochet scarf pattern. The openwork design gives this scarf a beautiful soft drape. The scarf is finished off with sassy tassels you won’t be able to resist playing with.

Woven Crochet Scarf: Shades of Plaid by Julie Armstrong

Pattern #9

Shades of Plaid by Julie Armstrong

A woven mesh fabric and woven chain creates a stunning fabric in this scarf crochet design. Working up quickly in worsted weight yarn, it is exciting to watch the creation of the plaid develop with each step.

Crochet Scarves Patterns: Labyrinth Colorful Scarf by Kristin Omdahl

Pattern #10

Labyrinth Colorful Scarf by Kristin Omdahl

This crochet scarf pattern combines two colorful motifs to create a log cabin style scarf. Visually, the combination of colors, stripes, and directions come together in a mesmerizing and colorful scarf.
