Free Crochet Pattern...The Every Man Scarf

The Every Man Scarf is luxurious, warm and elegant with just a bit of color.  Crochet one up for someone special or perhaps for yourself!  This beautiful scarf is completely reversible too, revealing a different look on either side.  Easy stitches and thicker yarn make the Every Man Scarf a super quick project too.

The Every Man Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson

Click the button below to add this to your Ravelry queue:


  • K (6.5 mm)
  • Yarn that recommends a "K" crochet hook on it's label (good yarn to try for this project: Lion Brand Woolspun, Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky, Red Heart With Love)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors

Note: Scarf is worked lengthwise and is determined by the number of starting chains.  A general rule of thumb I like to follow to get the best length for anyone is to measure from hip to hip...begin at the hip, go up and around the back of the neck and back down to the other hip.  If you want to wrap the scarf a couple times around the neck, make it longer.

  • 6 inches wide (as shown by working 10 rows of pattern)
  • 70 inches long (as shown)


Color A: shown in gray
Color B: shown in red

Note: For striping as shown, work 1 row of each color and alternate for the entire scarf.  When experimenting with striping, I found this sequence showed off the stitches and colors best.

Begin by making a chain as long as you would like your scarf to be.  I made my chain about 70 inches long.

Row 1 (color A): In the fourth ch from the hook, work a dc.  Work a dc in each ch across.
Row 2 (color B): Ch 3 and turn, work a bpdc (back post double crochet, see video tutorial below) into each dc across row.  Work a dc in the turning chain.
Row 3 (color A): Ch 3 and turn.  Work a dc into each stitch across. Work a dc in the turning chain.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf is desired width, ending on row 2 for a nice finished edge.  I worked a total of 10 rows for the scarf shown.  Fasten off.


Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!

  1. I love the look of this scarf Jennifer. Another fantastic pattern from you mind and hook. Thank you!

  2. This looks really good - tnx for the free pattern!

  3. Looks good but how much yarn of each colour do I need?

    1. I used about 170 yards of each color...hope that helps!

  4. Great-looking pattern!! I love how your patterns so often take simple stitches and directions, and end up with something so fabulous! I crochet scarves for a couple of charities that ask for "unisex" designs, and this pattern will definitely be included in my offerings to them!

    1. Thanks! Keep up that awesome charity work too!

  5. Dit ga zeker proberen. En bedankt voor alle gratis patronen, ik geniet iedere keer weer.

  6. Oh, I love the texture in this scarf and the two colors really makes it a dynamic accessory. Also, great colors.


  7. I absolutely love this scarf - on my to-do list!

  8. I live that the scarf is reversible. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  9. Am I just not seeing it? Is there a printer friendly button for this pattern? Love the pattern.

    1. Thanks for your question! The button is just under that last video...happy crocheting!

  10. Hi. I've been crocheting now for thirteen months and I wanted to learn the back post double crochet. I watched Jennifer's youtube video and practiced for a while. Here's the funny thing. Making the Every Man scarf was actually easier than the practice because of the different color yarn. The pattern was easy to do and the end result is lovely. Also, I never crocheted a scarf in this direction before, so I liked trying that, too. I've made so many of the wonderful Fiber Flux patterns: the Cloudy Mobius, Scraps of Love , Grape Jelly, lots and lots of Kids with Lids, the Love Notes Scarf, Everybody scarf , Mango Salsa many times, Mulberry scarf many times and other that I can't remember. Thank you, Jennifer, for your excellent patterns and excellent videos. I appreciate all the work you do. Thank you.

    1. Awesome! I appreciate your kind comment too! :)

  11. I am not seeing the look for the every man scarf after the third row, so can you do the fourth and fifth row to show how it is done....

  12. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern. So easy and beautiful! Making one for a gift.

  13. Love this! Do you have a hat pattern to match?

  14. This is one amazing looking scarf! Thank you Jennifer, will crochet this for my father in law! :-)

  15. Love this patter am working on my second one. Thank you for sharing this.

  16. Love this one, will make it some day!

  17. Quick question. On the last row of mine and I'm noticing that the edges are "flaring" a little bit. Wouldn't adding a DC in each Ch3 at the beginning be like an increase?

  18. Hello. Thanks for the pattern, I can't wait to make it. How many balls of colour A and colour B did youu use? I assume each ball is 100cm/110yards.

  19. Can I do this with chainless double foundation....I tend to crochet tight...but I did this chain really LOOSE and it Still looks bowed...will that work out as I go along?

  20. Hi Jennifer,

    I am new to crochet , so dont understand yarns much. But i love your patterns and intent to make as many as i can.

    For everymans scarf, i have the following:


    but i need to know how many such skeins i need for the same length and width.

    Please help so that I can order and begin.
