Man’s Easy Striped Scarf - Crochet

181-8200_IMGThis pattern is really very simple for a basic stripey scarf. The choice of colours can be changed to make it into a feminine girly scarf, but I find men’s patterns are very under represented.
181-8195_IMGMaterials: 5.5mm hook, 150g various colours of DK yarn. I used 7 different colours -Brown, Mustard, Rust, Royal Blue, Pale Blue, Jade, brown/grey mix.
Measurements: 9” x 52” approx
Skill Level: easy
Pattern:
Chain 150
Work 31 rows changing colour for every row. All rows ch 1 and work sc into all sts to end, turn, change colour and repeat.

Very Cooooool... I'm always looking for ideas that are more...well, "Manly"... We always seem to forget about them....

Oh this is nice! Love all the colors.

I really like this -- while it is manly it is also something I would wear with my navy blue pea coat and blue jeans.

Ladies,
Thank you all for your lovely comments as ever. Beverooni I agree I would wear it too. I'm surrounded by men and boys, even the cat is male :-), but still notice they are grossly under represented where it comes to patterns that they would actually wear.
Take Care :-)

Great timing. I've just taught myselt to crochet and now I can use your pattern to start me off. I think I will just use one colour, less complicated for me! Thank you.

Hi, Im new to crochet..

May i know for every row in this pattern, have to chain one then every SC across the stiches or has to do both chain one and sc across the stiches?

Thanks :)

LeAnne said...

It's both chain one and single crochet across the stitches. The chain one is to make sure that you don't miss a stitch. It's very helpful, so don't skip it.

Hi, I love the pattern, it is a great stash buster! I am going to make several of them and hang them all over campus, marked for free! Please let me know if you think this is ok

Lori said...

I agree with the wonderful way the colors came together. Bonus would be a stash buster ! Easy enought to get several done for Christmas gifts in the three evenings left! Thanks for posting it.

I LOVE THE COLORS IN THIS ONE! I'M ALMOST 58 YEARS OLD AND I WOULD RATHER WEAR THIS THAN THE COLOR PURPLE OR A RED HAT!

I've made this pattern a half dozen ways in as many colors for Christmas gifts. Easy to work upand changing yarn types and colors makes each one unique!

Marilyn said...

How do you deal with the ends of the scarf? ie: All the loose yarn from changing color each row.

Linda said...

For the ends, you could leave the tails as fringe and cut them off. Then just begin a new row leaving a longish tail for the fringe on that end. I've made afghans that way and its easy and nice not to have to tuck tails in.

Anonymous said...

Marilyn....you could always leave a length at each end of the scarf to make fringes.
Otherwise,you'd need to weave the ends into the work to hide them.

softpinkpjs said...

I would leave all the ends long and use them as part of the fringe. Also instead of sc in all the loops, I like to just use the back loop, it gives it a nice "ridge" look. Great idea for the leftovers.. thanks

Miss Sandy said...

Thank you for this versatile pattern. I'm getting lots of ideas!

Miss Sandy said...

Thanks for the great and versatile pattern. I'm getting lots of ideas for color combos!

Love It! I have my own business and therefore get to wear and dress however I like. I wear boys jeans and boys sweaters, tops.

To the question about what to do with the ends of the yarn. I have always crocheted "around" the tail ends as I go, that way I have almost nothing to weave in after I've completed a project.
