This scarf is aptly named The Husband Scarf because… well, I made it for my husband. In all honesty, this free crochet scarf pattern is suitable for anyone. My goal, however, was to find a stitch that was masculine enough for a man to wear. This series of half-double crochets and chain stitches fit the bill.
One of the things that I really like about scarves is that they are so easy to customize to you or the recipient’s liking. This scarf can be made wider, if you wish, just work in multiples of 2+1. You can also adjust the length to one that you are comfortable with. You can use a variety of colors, yarn types, or even hook sizes to obtain just the look you want. Add a fringe, or keep it off. There are just so many possibilities with scarves!
The Husband Scarf
The size I crochet hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Lion Brand Heartland in Redwood)
Row 1: Hdc in fifth ch from hook. *ch 1, skip 1ch, hdc in the next ch*, repeat from *to* across. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, hdc in first ch 1 space, *ch 1, hdc in next ch 1 space*, repeat from *to* across. Turn.
Remaining Rows: Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired length.
Finish off and weave in ends.
Cut equal-sized pieces of yarn, approximately 10 inches long. Working with two strands at a time, fold the strands in half and pull the loop through an end stitch of the scarf, then pull the ends of the fringe tightly through the loop. Repeat as desired. Trim fringe so that it is even.
