34 Free Crochet Scarf Patterns

Free crochet scarf patterns are great to have around during the fall and winter months. They make for great gifts and, of course, keep your neck nice and warm. Crocheted scarves are also one of the easiest crochet patterns to grasp if you are just learning how to crochet. They're easy since you use a simple pattern and you can just go straight across with no lengthy stitches. I made my first scarf in six hours, so if you're more advanced I'm sure you can whip one up in just a few.

If you want to make yourself a homemade crochet scarf, then you'll first have to decide what style to crochet. Will you crochet a classic crochet scarf that wraps around your neck, or will you make a cozy crochet cowl? Whichever style you choose, we have the free crochet patterns to match! Below, you'll find a full collection of free crochet scarf patterns in a variety of styles. No matter what kind of free crochet scarf patterns you are looking for, we have something for everyone. Keep in mind that scarves aren't just for the cold months; they can be worn to dress up any outfit any day of the year.

Classic Crochet Scarf Patterns

Glamorous Zig Zag Scarf

Scarves are one of the best crochet accessories out there - you can make them chunky and cozy or light and lacy depending on the weather. You can make crochet scarves to keep you warm and protect you against the wind, but you can also use lacy crochet scarf patterns to give your outfit a pop in the spring and summer.

Browse this collection of classic crochet scarves to find the perfect pattern for you. Whether you want solids or stripes, bulky or lightweight, there's a wide variety of free crochet scarf patterns to choose from.

Crochet Cowl Patterns

Single Skein Grapevine Cowl

Crochet cowls are similar to scarves, but instead of being super long, they're often circular and kept snug around the neck. Crochet cowls and infinity scarves are the same basic accessory except that crochet infinity scarves can be wrapped around your neck multiple times while you can't often do that with cowl.

Either way, crochet cowls are the perfect accessory for winter since you can wear one under a coat to stay warm without the extra bulk of a looped-around crochet scarf. Find our favorite crochet cowl patterns below!

Hooded Infinity Scarves

Aesthetic Hooded Scarf

These crochet cowl patterns are extra cozy because they have a hood! This way there's no extra space around the top of your neck where cold air can seep through - it's like a crochet hat pattern and a crochet scarf pattern all in one.

Crochet hooded scarves are easier than you'd think, and they're perfect for harsh winters. 

Aesthetic Hooded Scarf (pictured): ​The pictured step by step instructions are easy to follow, so feel free to make one in every color.
