Today we are going to learn how to crochet a classic looking men’s scarf that features a knit look with subtle texture and clean lines.

The crochet world is saturated with crochet patterns for women and children.  A couple of months ago, my husband asked, “Why don’t you make something for me?” And I thought to myself, he’s right! I should make something for him!

What my Husband wants:

When it comes to crochet, my husband likes clean lines, simple texture and a classic look.  This is the description that inspired this pattern for the Classic Men’s Crochet Scarf (and the hat that will soon be following).

Men's Classic Crochet Scarf

The Scarf:

This scarf features a knit look that is simply made using a combination of single crochet and slip stitches.  It is worked lengthwise meaning you will start with a fairly lengthy foundation chain.  If you are prone to losing count (as I am!) of your chains, I recommend placing a stitch marker every 50 chains or so.  That way if you lose track, the chains are much easier to count.

You may decide to add a fringe or tassels to your scarf (be sure to factor in some extra yarn when purchasing your supplies), my husband preferred it without!

Sugar Bush Yarns:

The yarn used for this project was generously supported by Sugar Bush Yarns! This yarn, called Rapture, is a Llama/Merino blend.  So it carries the warmth of wool, but is super soft! For my husband, he loved it as he always finds wool a bit too itchy against his skin.  Rapture is a happy medium!

If you would like to check out Sugar Bush Yarn’s selection of premium fibre, you may do so on their website:  I highly recommend it!

  1. If you’re chaining 1 in the beginning wouldnt there be 265 stitches still? If you want 264 stitches there should not be a chain 1 in the very beginning. Do I ch 1 or do I want 264 stitches?

    1. RichTexturesCrochet says:

      The first st in row 1 is into the 2nd chain from hook which will give you 264 stitches in the first row. Every row after that you ch 1 at the beginning but it doesn’t count as a st so You will continue to have 264 stitches in each row 🙂

      1. Hi, can you further explain this? I’m a beginner and a bit confused. The way I understand it is if I chain 265, then add one to make 266 in row 1, then the second chain from my hook would be 265, not 264. 264 would be the 3rd chain from my hook.

  2. Hi! When I do row 3 suddenly I see there are three yarn strings instead of two where I can easily identify which one is the back loop. It appears to be two strings making a loop and then there’s an extra loop on one side. Has this occurred for you? Which loop is the correct back loop? Or did I mess up on the previous row somehow. Thank you for the pattern!

  3. Jessica C. says:

    I’m over halfway thru making this scarf and I’ve noticed that my edges are diagonal instead of straight. I have the correct number of stitches every row, so I’m not sure if it’s tilting because of the slip stitches or because I did something wrong. Just wondering if this is something that normally occurs with this pattern and if blocking will help even it out.

  4. Do you recommend any different yarns? The original yarn was discontinued.
