Crochet Men’s Color Block Scarf

Hi friends,

What do you do when your husband asks you to stitch up a scarf for him? Of course you say yes! 😊 He helped me design what he had in mind and we are both happy with the way it turned out.

I used I Love This Yarn (worsted weight) and an I/5.5mm hook to make my scarf. Once you get started, this is one of those repeat patterns you can work on while watching your favorite movie or Netflix show.

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 to desired length, ending with a repeat of Row 3. The center Red part of my scarf measures about 78 inches. The scarf measures about 84 inches before changing to Coffee for the color block at the end of the scarf.

Change to Coffee.

Repeat Rows 4 and 3 four times (8 rows).

Change to Coffee.

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 once.

Last Row: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st dc, dc in each stitch across. Turn. (29 stitches)

Fasten off and weave in ends. 

Your finished scarf will have 12 rows at each end consisting of 3 rows Coffee, 1 row Red, and 8 rows Coffee with the long center part of the scarf all in Red.

Finished scarf measures approximately 90 inches long by 9 inches wide. My husband is tall and wanted to have plenty of length to wrap the scarf. You can easily adjust the length of the scarf by subtracting or adding rows to the center red part of the scarf.

This is a quick and easy pattern to work up in your favorite worsted weight yarn. What colors will you choose?

Happy Stitching!
