This crochet scarf pattern is a color variation on the easy grid lace scarf pattern. It's a beginner crochet scarf pattern that works up easily. It has an openwork design that makes it great for almost any season. Once you've learned how to change colors in crochet, you can use this version of the pattern to make a two-color scarf.

Two-color scarves are perfect for showing off team colors or spirit school colors. They're also great for holidays (red and green for Christmas, blue and white for Hannukah, red and pink for Valentine's Day). Of course, you can also just choose the two colors that best complement your own wardrobe.

Crochet Skill Level: 

Easy; this is a beginner crochet scarf that doesn't require any increasing or decreasing. If you know how to crochet in rows, working both single crochet and double crochet, then you should have no difficulty working this scarf pattern.

Materials:

  • Medium Weight Yarn: You can use any worsted weight yarn to crochet this scarf.
  • Crochet Hook: Size I crochet hook or adjust to achieve gauge shown below.
  • Tapestry Needle: You'll need a tapestry needle for weaving in ends when you are finished crocheting the scarf.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:

  • ch = chain
  • ch-1 sp = chain-1 space, the space formed when you crocheted a chain stitch in the previous row
  • dc = double crochet
  • ea = each
  • rep = repeat
  • sc = single crochet
  • st = stitch

Crochet Scarf Sizing

Finished Size: 

The completed crochet scarf measures approximately 4.5 inches wide. You can make yours as long as you want it to be. Suggested length is 48 inches.

Gauge:

You can check your stitch gauge by crocheting approximately ten rows then measuring the width of the scarf. The width should be 4.5 inches. If it's smaller, your gauge is too tight; you might want to loosen your tension or switch to a larger crochet hook. If it's larger, your gauge is too loose, so you need to tighten your tension or switch to a larger crochet hook.

Of course, there is no particular size required for the width of the scarf. As long as you have enough yarn to make the scarf the length that you want, it doesn't matter if your gauge is off.

Finishing the Crochet Scarf

End off, leaving enough yarn for you to weave in your ends. Thread your tapestry needle with this end of yarn and weave it into the scarf. Do the same for the other loose end(s). If you crocheted your scarf using wool or any fiber that responds well to blocking, you'll want to block it to accentuate the beauty of the lace pattern.
