The Lexington Scarf crochet pattern is a super cozy scarf worked in the attractive Moroccan Tile crochet stitch.
This is the final pattern in the 2022 Wonderful Hats crochet along. These past four weeks have flown by and I am so happy that you have joined me on this crochet journey! I look forward to continuing to see your hats and scarves as you complete them. If you haven’t heard of the Wonderful Hats Crochet Along, I run the event every year and the patterns will remain free forever here on Rich Textures Crochet!

The Lexington Scarf was designed to complement the Lexington Beanie! Both patterns feature the Moroccan Tile Stitch worked in two different colours. I find working it in two colours really shows off the pattern in the stitches. Essentially the Moroccan Tile stitches is comprised of crochet V stitches that are worked over top of one another to create a tile pattern.
The scarf is worked all as one piece, and as I did for the Arden Scarf and the Brighton Scarf, I worked a double crochet ribbed stitch for the two fringes. It add a bit of texture along with a nice clean finish.
For the Lexington Scarf, I will be working with two colours of a worsted weight yarn. In the photos and in the video tutorial I am using the Color Theory Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is super soft and 100% acrylic. You will only need three balls (two in colour A, one in colour B) to complete this pattern.
For this pattern you will also need a 4.5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below I will be using a Birchwood Hook by Rowan Yarns.
This pattern will be written out in full below followed by a free video tutorial. The pattern is free to follow on my site and will always be free! If, however, you would like a printable copy, you may purchase one from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:
