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

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
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!
