If you’d like to crochet a scarf, here are some fabulous patterns to try.
This easy scarf is a fantastic project for new crocheters — and it’s also great for crocheters of any expertise level who just want to kick back and chill with an easy project to work on.
There are 3 different versions of this scarf. The version you see pictured above was the first one I tried. I LOVE the stitch pattern, but it leans quite a bit to one side. So I thought I’d try a second version that fixes the leaning. Here it is:
4. Easy Grid Lace Scarf Pattern (Non-Leaning Version — Version #2)
While I do like this version too, I was surprised to find that I liked the first one better. But I decided to publish both of them because I figure there are going to be people who are annoyed by the leaning.
Then I decided to try a two-color version:
I chose to use red and green as my two colors, thus making it a Christmas scarf. But of course, you don’t have to make yours in Christmas colors if you prefer to make yours more of an everyday design. It could be more practical to just choose a couple of colors that match your favorite jacket, so you can wear it every day during the chilly fall and winter months of the year.

You crochet this colorful rainbow scarf using the tapestry crochet technique; then you add an abundance of fringe to complete the look. Click here to get the free crochet scarf pattern here on our website.
You crochet this drapey, stretchy scarf using the worsted weight yarn of your choice. The pattern is simple enough that it could be your very first crochet project if you like. It’s easy to adjust the length of this scarf.
This short but sweet jeweled neck scarf doesn’t have any buttons on it, but it was inspired by a stroll through the button aisle at my local JoAnn craft store. I was delighted by a two-part jeweled closure I found there among the buttons. I thought the closure looked like jewelry, with its subtly sparkly faux gems, but it could have been used in so many different ways. I had a hard time deciding what to make, but decided in the end to go with this neck warmer.
I would also love to try turning this type of closure into actual jewelry, like maybe a beaded crochet necklace with little pearls…
I’m pretty happy with how the neck warmer turned out. For one thing, crochet projects don’t get much simpler than this one is; it’s made using basic stitches and is easy enough for a total beginner who’s never crocheted before.
Also, I love the cheerful red color. I’ll be excited to wear it with my black wool winter coat; my mostly-black wardrobe could use a jolt of color, and this feminine design is just the sort of accent piece that it needs. Of course, if you’d like to crochet one of these neck warmers, please feel free to make it in a different color if you prefer. I’ve included the free crochet pattern on our website, and I invite you to give it a try if you’d like.
These make quick gifts; you could make one for each of the ladies on your winter birthday or holiday gift list.
