Sometimes, all I fancy is an easy crochet project. One that you can just make with your hands rather than use your head.

Crochet scarf patterns are exactly that. Easy, relaxing and mindless projects that you do not have to concentrate overly hard on.

I tend to choose these type if projects after working on something difficult. You know those tricky projects that literally take it out of you!

I have recently finished quite a big project that required a lot of maths and grading…and pattern typing….and testing… So, to say I felt burnt out after this one was an understatement.

That’s why I have decided to opt for something simple and easy to do, like a crochet scarf. I was looking through many projects on the internet.

I though I would share my findings with you and have compiled a collection of some amazing cosy crochet scarf patterns.

10 Cosy Crochet Scarf Patterns

This is a great collection of free crochet scarf patterns. All these scarves are suitable projects for beginners.

Scarves do not require much shaping if any at all. That is why they are desirable projects for people just starting to crochet.

I have chosen some real pretty crochet scarves both for men and women. However, because they are easy projects they are also super easy to adjust.

All you need to do if add extra stitches and rows if you wanted to make your scarf bigger. For a smaller one, reduce the number of stitches and rows.

This applies to both scarves worked length or width ways.

You can also add a range of finishing touches, why not try How To Make Twisted Fringe For A Beautiful Finish.

Hounds Tooth Crochet Pattern

This beautiful project uses crochet version of the hounds or dogs tooth pattern. It looks more complicated than it really is. The stitch is easy to learn and super relaxing.

Essentially the stitch pattern is created by working the lemon peel stitch. With one slight change. You have to change colour every row. Now, this can create a lot of ends. But do not be put off! You can just use these ends and blend them into a fringe!

This way you will not have to sew in hundreds of ends and you will have your fringe half done!

The pattern not only creates a lovely look but also a great subtle texture. You can find this beautiful crochet scarf pattern ON THIS BLOG.
