I’ve been designing crochet patterns for over 2 years and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to publish a men’s pattern! I’m super excited to be bringing you this men’s crochet scarf pattern you can use to keep all the men in your life warm and cozy this winter. This stylish scarf looks like one he’d actually buy from the store but means so much more coming from you because he knows it’s handmade.
This isn’t your traditional scarf that gets worked in short rows, moving from color block to color block. Instead, it’s worked lengthwise and does require some color-changing skills and managing different spools of color which is why I consider this an intermediate pattern.

Introducing the Winter Color Block Men’s Crochet Scarf
I’ve been on a bit of a tweed kick lately as I just love the rustic vibe it adds to everything. So it was no surprise I headed straight to the tweed options from WeCrochet as they have dedicated tweed lines in a wide variety of colors. In worsted weight yarn, the Provincial Tweed yarn called out to me as there are several masculine yarn colors to choose from and the drape is so incredibly squishy and luxurious.
Fair warning if your men are picky, the neps in this yarn line are purple and yellow. I think they look great, but it’s probably not the first thing you’d expect to see. If you haven’t used tweed yarn before, the neps are the flecks of color that are just barely attached to the main strands of yarn almost like fuzz or lint. They add visual texture to the yarn and are often in a few different colors.
The texture in this scarf is perfect for men because it’s simple and low-key, but still stunning. And shhh, this texture works for women too – just swap out the colors for your favorites. Using the Alternate Single Crochet stitch, which is comprised of alternating single crochet stitches in the front and black loops, the scarf is worked lengthwise.

Special Stitches & Tutorials
Depending on whether you plan to use the foundation single crochet or foundation chain to start your scarf, here are some video tutorials that might be helpful:
- How to change colors in foundation single crochet right-handed video tutorial or left-handed video tutorial
- How to change colors in foundation chain right-handed video tutorial or left-handed video tutorial
- US Terms (US to UK terminology conversion)
- Size can be altered by using multiples of 2 + 1
- Ch 1 at the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a stitch
- Change colors when there are still two loops on the hook for the last stitch of the color before the color change
- When changing colors, do not cut the colors for each row. Drop the unused color when switching to the next stripe and pick it back up when you return.
- Color changes are indicated by the new color in parentheses, followed by the number of stitches.
- For example: (A) BLO sc, FLO 10, (B) BLO sc, FLO sc 5, (A) FLO sc, BLO sc 10, Turn.
- If no color is listed before the stitches, use the same color as the previous stitches
- For Rows 2-34, after the 5th stitch, you will alternate between FLO and BLO sc, while changing color at the end of each color block established in Row 1, ending on 5 BLO sc in the last five stitches.
Estimated Size of Spools to Make for Each Color Block Section
To make efficient use of your yarn for color changes, it is extremely helpful to have spools or bobbins of color made up for each section. This will help you eliminate chaos but also help cut down on your overall number of yarn tails by not having to change colors within each block of color.
Use the estimates below to make individual bobbins for each section.
