35+ Men’s Scarf Crochet Patterns

Crochet scarves

Crochet scarves make great gifts for men for any occasion, from birthdays to Father’s Day or Christmas. Most scarf crochet patterns are quick and easy, you can make them as last-minute gifts for a friend or family member. 

Men’s scarf crochet patterns typically don’t differ all that much from women’s scarf patterns, since many stitch patterns look great on both men and women. Just changing up the color can turn a “women’s” scarf into a “men’s” scarf, but the patterns shared here are specifically designed with men in mind. 

What is the Standard Size of a Men’s Scarf?

The size of a crochet scarf will vary depending on who you are making it for. Most patterns indicate the finished length and width of the scarf so you can use that as a reference. 

Ideally, a scarf is as long as the person’s wingspan or height. However, that can vary, depending on the style of the scarf you are making and how the person likes to wear their scarf, such as wearing it with the ends straight like a stole or wrapping around the neck once or twice. 

A crochet scarf’s width will also depend on the design of  the scarf you are making. Most patterns give you instructions on how to modify both the length and the width of the scarf to your desired size. 

You can also refer to the chart below for a standard scarf sizing for adults.

Can a Beginner Make a Crochet Men’s Scarf?

Absolutely! Crochet scarves are a great beginner project. They are quick and easy to make, especially when you use a worsted weight or bulky weight yarn. 

If you know how to slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet stitches, you can definitely make a crochet men’s scarf. 

Most crochet patterns use a combination of these basic stitches to create a unique stitch pattern. Some of these stitch patterns create an element of texture and interest to crochet scarves.

If you need help learning any of these stitches or just need a refresher, check out our Crochet Fundamentals course, which includes short video tutorials that will help you master the basics. 

Supplies for Knitting Scarves

If you already have your basic crochet supplies, you can start whipping up any of the free crochet patterns for men’s scarves below.

You will need some yarn of the weight specified in the pattern, a crochet hook that works with that type of yarn, a yarn needle for weaving in ends, a pair of scissors, and a tape measure

While gauge is not super critical for crocheting scarves, you may need more yarn if your gauge is tighter than the pattern suggests. If you make a swatch or just measure your scarf as you go and find you are getting more stitches per inch than the pattern calls for, you can try working with a larger hook. Using a bigger hook will also give your scarf better drape. 

What is the Best Yarn for a Crochet Men’s Scarf?

Most men’s scarf crochet patterns call for (4) worsted weight or (5) bulky weight acrylic or wool yarn. Make sure to consult the pattern you chose for the yarn weight and the suggested yarn used by the designer. 

Acrylic yarn is very easily available, generally inexpensive, and has a lot of color choices. Some acrylic yarns you can use to crochet scarves include Lion Brand Heartland, Red Heart Super Saver, Caron One Pound, Premier Yarns Premier Anti-Pilling Everyday Worsted, and Lion Brand Hue + Me

Wool and wool-blend yarns are super soft and warm, which makes them great for scarves. Some wool and wool-blend yarn you can use are Lion Brand Wool-Ease, Lion Brand LB Collection Superwash Merino, and Knit Picks Simply Alpaca Aran.
