I really enjoy simple and quick projects such as this crochet men’s scarf. The pattern and the stitch are super easy which makes it beginner friendly. It works up very fast and makes an attractive crochet men’s scarf.
A free PDF version of this pattern is availabe on Ravelry here.
If you know how to crochet the Single Crochet stitch then you will find this stitch super easy. And if you’re an absolute beginner and you’ve never tried to crochet before this would be a great way to start!
For absolute beginners, to help you start with crochet, I suggest you first watch the short (approx. 15min) Single Crochet tutorial and then come back here and practise your stitches while making something beautiful for yourself /friend or partner. It would make a very special Christmas gift!
About the Stitch
Moss Stitch: Sequence of single crochet and chain stitches.
Moss Stitch is a super easy crochet stitch which is great for beginners! It’s much esier than it looks and you can create some amazing crochet projects by just using multiple colours!
If you like small projects, this Tea Towel pattern is using the same stitch and by alternating two contrasting colours you’ll get a different look!

Pattern is worked in rows lengthwise
Ch 1 at beginning of row does not count as stitch
You can make a longer or shorter scarf by chaining more or less – any even number
You can make a wider scarf by adding more rows (or less rows for narrower scarf)
If you’re making the scarf larger you would need 2 skeins of yarn.
Yarn: Mandala Ombre from Lionbrand Weight: 4/worsted, 1 skein, colour: Cool
15cm x 140cm (6” x 55”)
19 stitches x 20 rows in pattern = 4″

Sk = skip
Ch-1 sp = chain 1 space (space between the stitches in the previous row)
Moss stitch (also called Linen stitch)
Row 1: SC in second chain from hook, *Ch 1, Sk 1 Ch, SC in next*. Repeat from * to * until the end of this row. Turn (total 125 SC stitches)
Row 2: Ch 1, SC in the first Ch-1 space, *Ch 1, SC in next Ch-1 sp*. Repeat from * to * until the end of this row. The very last SC should be worked into the space between the Ch 1 turning chain and the first SC from the previous row. Turn
Row 3-28: repeat row 2
If you would like to make the scarf wider then just add more rows until you are happy with the width!
