Crochet Field Scarf Pattern
Crochet Field Scarf Pattern
Hello my dears! While it feels as though my health is going to slow me down with my crafty work, it can’t stop me forever. I had been meaning to get this pattern, and others, posted for you all for weeks now, but I’ve been having to take it easier as of late. Achy joints had me crocheting at snail-speeds…and it was driving me nuts! In the end, it got done and I only had one or two tantrums because of how slow I was going. So all is well!
I’ve been looking for scarf patterns that I can make for my husband. Something that fits his preference in style, something simple and uniform. Finding several patterns that were quite nice, I added them to my to-make list. But even then, I thought of making my own pattern. So I did! 🙂 This pattern has a more gender-neutral look because it will look different depending on the colors used. I made one for myself and am finishing up one for my husband.
Materials and Gauge
- “I” hook
- Worsted Weight yarn (I used LionBrand Heartland in Grand Canyon and Deborah Norville Everyday in Northern Lights)
- 4×4 inches
- 16 alternating sc & dc × 16 rows
- Ch 17, turn, skip 1 ch, sc 1 in the 2nd ch from the hook. Dc 1 in the next. *Sc 1, dc 1.* Repeat from * to * across. Rep these instructions for 15 more rows.
Notes and Abbreviations
- This pattern will be worked in short rows, and the rows will be repeated to the desired length of the scarf.
- The pattern can also be made in long rows to the desired length, and rows can be added to the desired thickness of the scarf.
- Numbers at the end of the instructions: In brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
- The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.
Sp(s) = space(s)
St(s) = stitch(es)
Ch(s) = chain(s)

1. Chain in multiples of 2 +1. For this pattern ch 16 +1 [17 sts]
2. Ch 1, turn. Skip the first st. Sc 1 in the 2nd ch from the hook, dc 1 in the next sts. *Sc 1, dc 1.* Repeat from * to * across. You should always begin with a sc and end with a dc. [16 sts]
3. Rep R2 [17 sts]
4. Continue to repeat R2 until you reach the desired length of your scarf.
Explaining the Details
You should always begin with a single crochet. The pattern indicates that you will alternate single crochet and double crochets.
And each row will end with a dc. This is important so that each stitch lines up with the one below. Every sc wil be done in the dc of the previous row. And each dc done will be in the sc of the previous row.
