Men's Black and Gray Color Block Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern

Around the holidays, I had a custom order in my EyeLoveKnots Etsy shop for a men's black and gray striped scarf.

Today, I am sharing the free crochet pattern with you!

With millions of color combinations, this scarf can be made over many times. Made of acrylic yarn, it's great for the cooler weather times. It also makes a great gift for him!

Materials:
     - 336 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used less than half a skein each of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Black and Graphite 
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends - I like to use a #18, or #20.
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook

Material Notes:
     Some Yarn Alternatives: Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft, or Red Heart's With Love.

Gauge:
With I Love This Yarn and an I9/5.5mm Hook = 4" x 4"
     Chain 16, DC in the 4th stitch, and in each stitch across. (14 DC)
     R2 - R8: Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd stitch, and each stitch across.
     Fasten Off.

Measurements:
     6.5" wide by 70" in length

Abbreviation/s:
     DC - Double Crochet

Pattern Notes:
     Work color changes in the last yarn over of the final double crochet. 
If you need to help, I have a photo tutorial: How to Change Yarn Colors in Crochet the EyeLoveKnots Way.
Alternatively, you could fasten off at the end of each color block and attach your new color.
     You may choose to add a single crochet border around your scarf you have completed it. This adds a nice, clean edge to the scarf, and hides and uneven edges. Mine came out perfect, so I opted not to include a border.

  1. It's so hard to crochet for guys sometimes...But this seems like a pattern that just about any guy would love. What a great classic look!

    1. Difficult to shop for guys in general, I think. Except when it comes to a basic hat and scarf. That seems to be my go-to lately. Thanks for stopping by Jenny!

  2. How many yards would you say you used?

    1. It's been awhile, but based on a similar scarf I made, I'm gonna say about 336 yards total (less than a skein of each color).

  3. This looks awesome and actually perfect timing. I needed a scarf pattern for a man. Thank you!

    Question: for every color change, you start with the ch2 then the dc, correct?

    Thank you again for this pattern! I'm going to check out your other projects. ☺

    1. Oops, you're right! Didn't put any chains in the pattern. Thanks for catching that! Yes, each row begins with a chain 2, and then the first double crochet is into the second stitch. Would love to see finished photos :)

    2. Thanks for clarifying! :-)

      I'm hoping to start on the scarf this weekend. I'll be using colors forest green and grey. Will post a pic when I'm done.

      Thanks!
