The Every Man Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern + Full Video Tutorial

The Every Man Scarf is luxurious, warm and elegant with just a bit of color.  Crochet one up for someone special or perhaps for yourself!  This beautiful scarf is completely reversible too, revealing a different look on either side.  Easy stitches and thicker yarn make the Every Man Scarf a super quick project too.

  • 6.5 mm K crochet hook
  • Yarn that recommends a “K” crochet hook on it’s label (good yarn to try for this project: Lion Brand Woolspun, Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky, Red Heart With Love)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors


Note: Scarf is worked lengthwise and is determined by the number of starting chains.  A general rule of thumb I like to follow to get the best length for anyone is to measure from hip to hip…begin at the hip, go up and around the back of the neck and back down to the other hip.  If you want to wrap the scarf a couple times around the neck, make it longer.

  • 6 inches wide (as shown by working 10 rows of pattern)
  • 70 inches long (as shown)


Color A: shown in gray

Color B: shown in red

Note: For striping as shown, work 1 row of each color and alternate for the entire scarf.  When experimenting with striping, I found this sequence showed off the stitches and colors best.

Begin by making a chain as long as you would like your scarf to be.  I made my chain about 70 inches long.

Row 1 (color A): In the fourth ch from the hook, work a dc.  Work a dc in each ch across.

Row 2 (color B): Ch 3 and turn, work a bpdc (back post double crochet, see video tutorial below) into each dc across row.  Work a dc in the turning chain.

Row 3 (color A): Ch 3 and turn.  Work a dc into each stitch across. Work a dc in the turning chain.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf is desired width, ending on row 2 for a nice finished edge.  I worked a total of 10 rows for the scarf shown.  Fasten off.


Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished!

  1. Great-looking pattern!! I love how your patterns so often take simple stitches and directions, and end up with something so fabulous! I crochet scarves for a couple of charities that ask for "unisex" designs, and this pattern will definitely be included in my offerings to them!

  2. Hi. I've been crocheting now for thirteen months and I wanted to learn the back post double crochet. I watched Jennifer's youtube video and practiced for a while. Here's the funny thing. Making the Every Man scarf was actually easier than the practice because of the different color yarn. The pattern was easy to do and the end result is lovely. Also, I never crocheted a scarf in this direction before, so I liked trying that, too. I've made so many of the wonderful Fiber Flux patterns: the Cloudy Mobius, Scraps of Love , Grape Jelly, lots and lots of Kids with Lids, the Love Notes Scarf, Everybody scarf , Mango Salsa many times, Mulberry scarf many times and other that I can't remember. Thank you, Jennifer, for your excellent patterns and excellent videos. I appreciate all the work you do. Thank you.

  3. I am not seeing the look for the every man scarf after the third row, so can you do the fourth and fifth row to show how it is done….

  4. Quick question. On the last row of mine and I'm noticing that the edges are "flaring" a little bit. Wouldn't adding a DC in each Ch3 at the beginning be like an increase?

    1. i'm also having this problem. i thought maybe because i am doing it in solid and not tying each end, but instead, turn ch 3, dc in same stitch. i'm always off a stitch sometimes two so the edges are really wonky. ugh. i'm trying to figure it out.

  5. Hello. Thanks for the pattern, I can't wait to make it. How many balls of colour A and colour B did youu use? I assume each ball is 100cm/110yards.

  6. Can I do this with chainless double foundation….I tend to crochet tight…but I did this chain really LOOSE and it Still looks bowed…will that work out as I go along?

  7. Hi Jennifer,

    I am new to crochet , so dont understand yarns much. But i love your patterns and intent to make as many as i can.

    For everymans scarf, i have the following:

    but i need to know how many such skeins i need for the same length and width.

    Please help so that I can order and begin.

  8. Hi Jennifer,
    I love this scarf. Not so an asvanced crochet persoon. But thanks to your video I manager it and made one for my husband. He just lovend it. Now he asked if i can make a Cap that fits this scarf. is that possible with this Stich?
    Thanks in advance for your reply!

  9. Hi Jennifer,
    I really like your pattern thanks for sharing.I was wondering if the grey is a bit bigger than the red one. I'm making it exactly like your instruction but it's not as nice,help……

  10. I notice on Ravelry that there are options for 3 colours. What's your advise regarding adding that third colour to your pattern.
    Thanks, Paul

  11. Hi. Is the needle size the American or EU one? My yarn is apparently a size 4 but also US 6.. Figured it would do as a 6 instead of 6.5, but not if it's a four…
    I've picked grey and a nice blue wool blend. Hope the man on the receiving end likes it!

  12. Unknown. I just finished this scarf. It turned out beautiful, and will look great on any man. I’m going to make a hat to match.
