40 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 of these 40+ Free Crochet Scarf Patterns 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.

We even have unisex scarf patterns that open up more possibilities. Unisex scarf crochet patterns are great for everyone and anyone. Broaden your horizons with new stitches for these unisex crochet scarf patterns. Try a bumpy scarf crochet pattern or a popcorn scarf crochet pattern. Get out of your usual single crochet and double crochets and try a new stitch. 

 We haven't forgotten about the little ones, either! Children's scarf crochet patterns can be really fun to make. You can get really creative with the embellishments that you might add to the ends. Our last section is dedicated to free crochet scarf patterns for kids and we think they'd love any of our choices to stay warm and stylish when it's cold.

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

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!

I am looking for a pattern for the potato chip scarves that is crocheted. The only one I have found have been for knitting. I puchased the Red Heart Boutique Sashay Metallic and they only give for Knitting. Would appreciate any help you could give. Thanks

Fellow Crocheter click this link I used this video last week however I think the 243 chain was too long for me you may want to go with 175 chains. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvjDVWzbeDg

GREAT Ideas for "HUGS for NEWTOWN". I've made several already. Love the scarf idea. Send a HUG to someone. I found them on Facebook . It's to let the folks of Newtown CT know that we are thinking of them. The idea of Unisex scarves is wonderful and I will be making more... Thank you for posting these...

Can I get the LW2517 Frilly Knit Scarf pattern with crochet directions ?

Nice,but not what I wanted

dear pld, i think i heard a rumor that Special Olympics or Red Heart were not doing the scarf project in 2013. not that we can not do it any way

Great idea to have unisex scarf patterns together in an ebook. I'll consult it when I get the colors for the 2013 Special Olympics scarves and other scarf projects -- maybe even make one just for me.

just beautiful!!!

I would like the pattern # LW2419

this is a fantastic site will visit often

I am looking for a pattern for a crochet scarf using double crochet stich

Would love to have written instructions for Frill Seeker Scarf in crochet. It is beautiful. I have knitting instructions but would rather crochet. Thanks, sandra

I would like this pattern in crochrt how do I get it?

Everytime I click on a "free" pattern i get the click sound with the gold splat and an exclamation mark. Why is that and why can't I access the supposedly free patterns?

deleciaspence 5622938 your pop ups are blocked. You can use 'tools' on the tool bar to allow pup ups on this site or each time you want to access a particular pattern just hold down your control button (lower left on key board) when you click on the pattern you want to see. Hope that helps

Sometimes my computer is a real bougar about things like that, and i've noticed that when you click the middle scrolly button on the mouse, it brings the pattern up in a different tab, and sometimes that helps. Computers will never escape fallibilty.

Where are the combos you mention? I'm looking for a matching scarf and hat pattern.

I am looking for a specific stocking cap pattern - on with a very long tapered end that can wrap around neck as a scarf after the cap is on head - an all in one if you will. My grandaughter requested such an item and I can't fins a pettern anywhere - please help and thanks in advance - Janet

If you cannot find a pattern, it would probably be easy to alter or make a pattern up to satisfy what you need. I do it all the time.

Not that you probably want it now (Mar, lol), but Caron has a scarf hat in their free patterns :-). Cheryl

@jainsworth3 2575999, Once you click on the title of the scarf you would like to make, you will be taken to the pattern review page for that specific project on our site. From here, please click on the link that says "click here for crochet pattern" to be taken to the original designer's site with the pattern available in full for free. I hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Could never get directions for scarf after clicking on pattern for scarf?

Try clicking on it with the middle button on the mouse- it sometimes helps me when my computer gives me grief!

Delighted to find a pattern using a double-ended hook! Now I need the hook - I live in Cape Town, South Africa, and no-one here even knows what I am talking about! Maybe you can tell me of a stockist there and I could email them from here, in hope that I might be able to order some - it's worth a try! I'd love to see some more patterns for this special hook...
