Free Crochet Pattern...Wise Oak Ribbed Scarf


The Wise Oak Scarf is a basic ribbed scarf that is warm and lofty.  Fabulous ribs are created by crocheting in the front loops of each stitch.  A simple concept that yields a beautiful scarf.  Sizing for width and length is completely customizeable.  This pattern is perfect for solid colored yarns, but also shows off variegated and self striping yarns wonderfully.

Materials:
  • K (6.5 mm) Crochet Hook
  • 2 Skeins Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Sizing: 
  • Width-as wide as you like
  • Length-as long as you like

Abbreviations:
  • ch: Chain
  • sc: Single Crochet



Instructions:

Ch the length of the scarf desired, plus 2 more ch.
Foundation Row: In the 2nd chain from the hook, work 1 sc in each ch.
Row 1: Ch 1 and turn. Work 1 sc in the front loop only of each sc from the previous row.
Repeat row 1 until scarf is desired width.

Finishing:

Weave in ends and you're all finished!
(Block lightly if desired)

  3. Jennifer, are we related???? We seem to love the same yarn! I used the WOODLANDS, TUNDRA, CARIBBEAN & PRISM colorways of this yarn to make scarves & arm warmers & I have more on order because I love working with it. I tend to get bored now with just a single color unless there are sequins (Patons lace, et al) or SOMETHING SHINY to keep my attention!!! LOL I went through the back loops only but did it horizontally instead of vertically as you did here...WHICH LOOKS GORGEOUS, by the way! I guess I will just have to learn to love LONG CHAINS if I want the effect you designed. HAPPY HOOKING!! ;-D

  4. Why do you have free patterns if you cannot copy they cannot be copied and used away from the computer?

    1. I have free patterns on my site because I like to share them with others knitters and crocheters. Copying the pattern to a website, blog, etc (as stated in the copyright statement above) for republishing is a serious copyright violation.

      However, you are free to print a copy of this material for your own personal use if you need a hardcopy while working on your scarf.

      Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!

  5. Thank you for this pattern; I make scarfs for soldiers and since there is a size limitation this pattern is perfect since you can make it the size you want it!

  6. I fell in love with this scarf when I first saw it, and when I was asked to donate auction items to raise money for a neighbor with breast cancer, I knew what to make! The simple pattern was quick to complete, but it looks like a million bucks! Thank you for sharing your patterns!

  9. This is a nice pattern. I used three colors with a 150 chain, I'll make it longer the next time, but the result is still good after adding fringe for length. Thanks for the pattern.

  10. Hi Jennifer!!

    I am new to crochet and would like to thank you SO MUCH for patterns that are easy to follow for folks like me who are just beginning this journey.

    To that end, I am going to use this pattern to create men's scarves for Christmas this year. Because I'm new, can you help me understand what a good sta!rting chain number would be for a guy, to wrap comfortably? I was thinking 200 ? Thanks in advance, I am anxious to get started on this fabulous project!

    1. Thank you for your kind comment...generally I like to make scarves that go from hip to hip (start at one hip, continue around the neck, end at the other hip). Here are some more helpful tips in this article I wrote a while back:

  13. I am glad I can use another type yarn as I am going to make the every man scarf for a good friend of mine. This scarf (wise oak) I believe is the same pattern. I also plan on using the same pattern to make fingerless gloves to match for him.
