Ribbed Crochet Scarf – Free Pattern

Here is the scarf to match the Ribbed Crochet Hat I made for my boyfriend. The pattern couldn’t be simpler; just alternating front and back post double crochet stitches that create a ribbed design reminiscent of knit. This is even easier than the hat, as it is just a long rectangle without any increases. It can be done any width and length that you like. My scarf is 5″ wide and 55″ long. I used the same yarn for this as I used for the hat, which is an alpaca wool blend that I got locally. It seems to me to be about a sport weight.

Materials:

  • Sport yarn in two colors: 200g main color and 100g contrasting color
  • Hook G (4.25 mm)

Stitches used:

Row 1: Using main color, fdc 32, turn.

Row 2: Ch 2, *fpdc, bpdc; repeat from * to end of row, fpdc around beginning ch of first row, turn. (32 total sts)

Row 3: Repeat row 2.

Continue repeating row 2 until the scarf is about 50″ long. On last pull-through of that row, change to contrasting color. Repeat row 2 until contrasting color part reaches 2 1/2″ (9 rows). Fasten off.

Working on opposite end of scarf, join contrasting color with fpdc around first stitch of the first row. Bpdc, *fpdc, bpdc; repeat from * to end of row.
