Free Crochet Pattern...Everybody Scarf!

This scarf was designed with everybody in has just enough texture to hold its own with solid yarn, but isn't too busy to handle a variegated yarn too.  It is nice and neutral for either gender and can be crocheted in any length for any age.  It also works up quickly, making it a great scarf for yourself, a fabulous gift, or for charity (or all three!)

Everybody Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson


  • 1 Skein Red Heart Super Saver ("Charcoal" shown) or worsted weight yarn of your choice.
  • J ( 6.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle


  • Width: 6 inches
  • Length: As long as you like...I usually make mine go from hip around the neck, then back to the other hip.  However, you can make yours as long or short as you want.


Ch 18

Foundation Row: In the second ch from the hook, work a sc.  *Ch 3, skip 3 ch, sc in next ch, rpt from * to end of row.

Row 1: Ch 3 and turn.  *Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the ch 3 sp from the previous row.  Rpt from * in each ch 3 sp across.  1 dc in the turning chain.

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. In the first space, work a sc.  *Ch 3 and work a sc in the ch 1 space (in between the groups of 3 dc from previous row), 1 sc in the turning chain.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until scarf is desired length.

Finishing:  Weave in ends.

Here is a video to crochet the Everybody Scarf stitch by stitch:

  1. Now this I like very much. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thanks Jennifer. It will be perfect for the men in my life needing scarves!

  3. Just finished making this a few days ago and am wearing it today. Love it! Thanks for another great pattern.

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE the pattern.. if i wanted to make this into a blanket how many intial chains would I need to do..ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated.. Wanting to make a few for gifts for Christmas for co workers..

  5. HI,
    I don't know if my last message went through so just sending this just in case it failed.
    Im looking forward to crocheting my very first scarf for myself and when l came across this pattern it was PERFECT for me.
    My question is:
    In Knitting the pattern is in blocks of rows/stitches. If l wanted to make this scarf wider for myself say 9 inches wide.
    How many extra cast on's will l need?
    Maybe adding 3 or 4 extra blocks to the width.
    Hope this makes sense?
    It did my my head but then that's a whole different story lol.
    Thank you for publishing a easy pattern that's great for men as well as women all you have to do is change the yarn/wool.
    Happy crocheting everyone....

    1. Hi there! Just so I understand are you trying to make the scarf knitted instead of crocheted?

  6. So this is my first ever finished crochet piece.. And I am so proud of it! Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read pattern! I used the same color, but a different yarn. I used primarily wool.. Which made for a very stiff scarf! But now I know.. And since its my first, I love it anyway :) the only thing I changed.. Well, added really.. Was bundles of fringe in each hole at either end. Love this pattern, thanks again!

  7. If I wanted to make the scarf narrower/wider am I correct in thinking that I would subtract/add in 4 chains in the starting row?

  8. Hi I'm want to make this scarf wider how many stitches do I need to do could you reply

  9. Hi I want to make this scarf wider how many extra stitches I need to add

  10. Thank you so much for sharing this, I have never crochet before and because of your easy instructions i am half way through my first everybody scarf although i do have a few tension problems i am delighted with it. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

  11. Made it for a Christmas gift for my grandson and he loved it. Your tutorial Helped me make a beautiful gift. Your tutorials are the best. Easy to understand and follow. Thank you.

  12. Hi, I Have made the Everyman Scarf and it was great. Now I am looking to make myself a scarf that is also two toned but cant find other patters with two colours, Are there patterns that you have displayed as one colour that can also be made into a two colour scarf?

  13. How would this look in a bulky yarn with, say, an N hook? Would it still work?

  14. Hi! Thanks for sharing this great pattern. I did get a little confused (new to crocheting) I think the written direction may be missing a step from the video. I missed the ch 3 after the dc?

  15. I love this pattern and it is working up so pretty. Mine has a slight curve on the dc into the turning chain side. From your picture it seems to have a slight curve so just seeing if that is normal. Thank you for the great tutorials!

  16. I love this pattern and have made about three of them so far; one for me, my daughter, and my granddaughter. Just finished making the fingerless mittens too. Just learning to crochet. Your videos are so great!!

  17. If I wanted to add some width how many more chains should I add?

  18. I love this pattern, I made this in gray and now I'm making it in navy blue.

  19. I know this pattern was created a few years ago. I have been fond of it since I first seen it. I am planning to make it but is there a hat that matches it?
    I would love to make this as a gift

  20. I have loved this scarf since the first time I seen it. Is there a hat pattern to match?

  21. I made this in sherry and silver, our college team colors by putting in one row, second from each end on the contrasting color. Hope I get to wear it to a game this year!
