Finding a beautiful men’s crochet scarf pattern can sometimes be challenging. There is a thin line between what can be termed a crochet scarf for men and what is commonly seen as a scarf for women. When the crochet scarf is even befitting for both gender, it makes sit unique and beautiful.

Details of this easy crochet scarf for men

Looking for a unisex scarf and something men would want to wear? The Mo Dhaid scarf is the perfect one for you- not being too lacy, at the same time not dense and heavy. Using a larger hook and a thinner yarn helps give the scarf a lighter softer feel.

It has been designed with a lot of texture and no lace – keeping it simple with a single color and allowing the stitches to speak for themselves.

You would also learn and perfect a beautiful crochet stitch combination when you make this crochet men’s scarf pattern. The Celtic weave has always fascinated me and gives any piece a rich look. Mixing it with a simple diamond pattern creates something totally new. 

Easy crochet scarf for men

Taking from the Celtic Weave and looking for inspiration from the Irish language, I could not think of a better name for the scarf than Mo Dhaid– pronounced ‘mo jade’ and meaning My Dad in Irish. Dads have a special place in any girl’s heart, as did mine. Having lost him about 12 years ago, he never got to see me embark on my crochet journey. I hope this makes him proud.

The pattern for Mo Dhaid is also available as a premium pdf copy in my Ravelry Store. This also includes a variation for a cowl.

Pattern instruction:

Notes-

  • The pattern uses US terminology.
  • The pattern uses a larger hook than normally recommended for lightweight yarn- this is to ensure the scarf remains lightweight and airy.
  • The pattern is worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • Ch1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Chain stitches in the middle of the rows count as a stitch.
  • When the pattern says ‘2dc’ it means 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts.  The same for all stitches
  • The pattern includes post stitches for both treble and double crochet. Read carefully!
  • The pattern for rows 3 and 4 constitute the Celtic Weave stitch.
  • Stitch counts are given in brackets at the end of each row.
  • The gauge is not critical to the scarf.

Instructions for this men’s crochet scarf pattern

SECTION 1

Chain 61

Row 1(RS)- Sc in the second chain from the hook and 1 sc into each chain. (If you work into the back loops of the chain, you will get a neater edge), TURN [ 60sc]

Row 2(WS)- Ch 1 and 1dc into each sc of row 1, TURN [60dc]

Row 3- Ch1, 2 dc, (sk2, 2fptr, 2 fptr around the skipped sts, working from the front) rpt across till 2 sts remain, 2 dc, TURN [ 4dc, 56 fptr]

Row 4- Ch1, 2 dc, 2 bptr (sk2, 2bptr, 2 bptr around the skipped sts, working from the back) rpt across till 4 sts remain, 2bptr, 2 dc, TURN [4dc, 56 bptr]

Row 5-14- Repeat rows 3 and 4, five more times

SECTION 2

Row 15 onwards has the Celtic weave along the sides of the scarf and the diamond pattern in the center. Ch 1 or ch2 in the middle of the rows are counted as a stitch and dc sts are worked into the chains (you can work into the chain space or into the chain stitch). Some of my testers found the use of stitch markers for the ch sp helped to spot the chs easily.

When I wrote out the pattern and did some test swatches, I never imagined how beautiful it would all come together. My dedicated team of testers really brought this pattern to life and I am humbled by their final outcomes. I am grateful to Nailah Ahmed, Jayashree Madan, Dr Reny J, Vimala Vignesh, Hamsila Samuel Rajan, and Poornima Kannan for their time and valuable input to make this design a reality.

Easy men's crochet scarf pattern

I started crocheting almost 9 years ago and thanks to the beautiful community that exists, I have developed my skills along the way. This has helped me grow as a maker, tester, teacher, and designer.  I published 2 patterns in 2020, 4 in 2021 and this is my 3rd pattern for 2022- hoping for many more in this year.
