Crochet scarves are always one of the easiest crochet patterns to work up, no matter your skill level. If you have an hour or so to spare, then you can complete any one of the free crochet patterns in our latest collection of 19 Quick and Easy Crochet Scarves. Grab a skein or two of yarn and crochet any one of these scarves on your lunch break, on your commute to/from work, or as you mindlessly catch up on your favorite television program. Use up such a small amount of both time and yarn to make such a cute and easy accessory. Wear them all year long or just in the winter to keep you warm and cozy.
Scarves are one of those accessories that can be worn all year round, depending on the yarn you use to make it. Wear a lacier, light piece in the spring and summer, and as the winter chill sets in, start switching out those pieces for some bulky wool to make sure you stay warm and add pockets to your crochet scarves with hoods. They're fast and easy pieces and create an instantly put-together look.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Patterns
Learn how to crochet scarves for beginners, right here! These crochet scarves are so easy and stylish that you will want to work up every single pattern we give you. This list is specifically for crochet infinity scarves, which are the most stylish winter accessories you can find. There are so many different ways to wear your crochet infinity scarf- you just have to take an hour to work it up first.
Stick with one color and a medium or bulky weight yarn and work up a cozy pattern like the Mossy Infinity Scarf or the Periwinkle Infinity Scarf (pictured), or add in multiple colors to your work and work up something like the Color Blocked Crochet Scarf. Using multiple colors is a great way to show school or team spirit. However, you choose to crochet your scarf, make sure to crochet it long enough to double around your neck and keep you extra warm and extra cozy.

Free Crochet Scarves
Work up any one of these quick and easy crochet scarves if you're not into the infinity trend. These free crochet patterns can be completed in just a few hours (or even minutes!) using one or two skeins of yarn. It's amazing how simple it is to work up one of these crochet scarves that can pull together any outfit for a special date night, another day at work, or drinks with friends.
These crochet scarves differ from infinity scarves in that they aren't seamed at the ends to form a loop. Because of this, you can style your crochet scarves however you want. Use one solid color to create an everyday accessory, or add multiple colors to brighten up your look. You can even add fringe to the ends for a fun on-trend look.

Free Crochet Cowl Patterns
Wrap yourself up in any one of these cozy crochet cowl patterns that do not have a beginning and end. Like infinity scarves, they are circular and can be easily wrapped around your neck to create a beautiful draped neckline. Unlike infinity scarves, though, they are usually shorter and make a circle with a smaller circumference. It all depends on the look you are hoping to achieve.

How to Block a Crochet Scarf
Now that you're done with your work, you're probably wondering how to care for your crochet project. Should you wash it? How? Well, for the most part, unless your yarn labels specifically say hand wash, you should be able to machine wash your work to clean it. But before you go about wearing your new design, you'll want to block your work to make sure it isn't curling or uneven. You can either wet block, cold block or dry block, and you can find specific information at our tutorial for how to block a crochet pattern, but the basics are the same:
1. For wash blocking only, wash your project first.
2. Spread out your project either on a bed, some towels, a rug or a blocking board.
3. Work around the project and, using rust-proof pins, pin your project in place.
4. Make sure the pinned project reflects how you want your work to end up looking: keep your edges straight!
5. If wash blocking, let dry completely. If dry blocking, use a steamer or iron around your work to relax and set your work. If cold blocking, mist your project with a spray bottle until your work is wet.
For a more detailed tutorial of the blocking process, be sure to read How to Block Crochet Patterns.
