I’m sure that all of you have a sweet guy out there whether he is a husband, brother, father or just a friend.  My sweet guy does a lot of DIY projects around the house, cleans up after himself in the bathroom, and turns his socks right side out before he puts them in the hamper.

This pattern is made by combining 3 pattern rows of each color until you get to the middle, 5 pattern rows of grey, and then reversing the order of the colors to the other edge. The ch 2 at the beggining if the row counts as a hdc.

    Hi.Finished the project, it came out beautifully! Not sure how to upload a pic here. It looks almost exactly like yours: instead of beige, I used a yarn that had slightly more ‘pink’ in it..thanks so much!
    I also just finished a ‘Amigurumi’ Owl for my son’s 5th birthday..

      Great job Ragni! For a new crocheter you are going strong! I’m glad that the scarf pattern worked out well. Around here, my sweet guy has used it a lot in the last few days; very cold! I haven’t started the owls yet. I must get some materials together.

        Thank you.. :).. It is very cold here too!
        I cannibalized older unused stuffed animals’ fiber fill to make the owl..I got the idea last minute (read late night) and didn’t have time to go shop :). Have to say the old reindeer toy looked sad, and me bad :). I also crocheted the eyes instead of putting in the beady looking ones: again, no time..

    I am not sure what the type of yarn you used is. You did not post size of finished scarl. I followe the instructions with hook size but used 4 ply acrylic and it will end up being and afghan 72″ X * and I have 2 more colors to go

      Hi Nancy, the yarn, as stated in the pattern is Caron Simply Soft. The scarf measures 70 inches long by 8 1/2 inches wide. It is a nice long scarf that can be wrapped around the neck twice. :-)

    Tnx for the simple and lovely pattern but just little help i am a new crocheter and stuck in row 2 couldn’t get it

    • Wolf Crochet

      Heba, are you having a problem with row 2 having too many stitches? When you begin to work your set of crossed double crochet stitches, the first one that you did will leave the hole stretched out a little. It is easy to accidentally crochet into that stitch but since it already contains a stitch you must use the next one. Counting your stitches as you go also helps a lot. I have written out the instructions without abreviations below:

      Row 2: Skip first single crochet stitch, double crochet in next single crochet stitch, double crochet in skipped single crochet stitch. * skip next sinngle crochet stitch, double crochet in next single crochet stitch, double crochet in skipped single crochet stitch*. Work from * to * to last single crochet stitch. Half-double crochet in last single crochet stitch. Chain 1, turn. (108 crossed double crochet stitches and a half-double crochet at each end.) The chain 2 at the beginning of the row counts as a half-double crochet stitch.

      I hope this has helped!

    Thank you do much for your help.
    If you don’t mind could you show us the way you work by in a video?
    Am still a beginer and didn’t get the way you work by.
    Is it this one?

      ymnpearl, I do not have the ability to make videos because I have a free blog. The stitch I am using in the 2nd row is called the crossed double crochet stitch and I have given you a link for the video in my answer above. I hope that this helps.

    Thank you for posting this amazing work!

    I’d love to make one like this, but as am a beginner i don’t get the way you work with.
    Is it like this?


    • Wolf Crochet

      May 15, 2014 at 4:36 am

      Yes ymnpearl, you make these stitches for your first row but on the 2nd row you make them like this.

        May 15, 2014 at 9:40 am

        Thank you!
        Well, Let me explain for you what I got.

        I make 2 rows for each color until the middle. The 1st row is the stitch I’ve shared and the 2nd is the one you’ve done.

        And the middle color will be the gray which I thought it’s a brown one. :)
        This gray will be done in 5 rows. 1st row is the one I shared and the 2nd is what you have shared which called crossed double crochet. Right! And then what?

        Also, if you don’t mind could you check my wool I bought? Is it like the one you used?

        Your scarf sounds beautiful Pearl! You might try working three rows of a very plain stitch like half-double crochet for the middle and then start again on the stitches that you used previously. I looked at your yarn and it appears that you are using worsted weight yarn. That will be fine for your project.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I just start working and I wish I could achieve something AMAZING. :)

    Well, I can’t frankly understand (sc, ea, ch, sk and dc) stand for. Therefore, I don’t get the pattern you’ve explained. :(

    I made 300 chains for the 1st row and I stopped. I want to make the stitch I used before and then yours, but I decided to ask you; it’s better than working wrongly. :)

      Hi YmnPearl, Learning to read the abreviations is the first step to being able to work a pattern. All patterns are written with abreviations. Sc=single crochet, ea=each,ch=chain,sk=skip,and dc=double crochet. If you go to this site you will see a list of all the crochet abreviations. You can print the list and refer to it when you are reading a pattern. Hope this helps.

        Thank you so much. I start learning by my own language so I miss these abbreviations.

        mmm, you know, I have a problem, I can’t make all stitches with the same size. :(

        Look at mine please. :(

        Pearl, your stitches look just fine for a beginner. It takes a while before your hand gets used to holding the yarn at the same tension as you work. When you are finished with your project, you can block it and this will even out your stitches.

    What a great pattern! This is my new go-to guy scarf pattern. It’s hard to find good ones that are manly, yet still have interesting stitches. Had a blast! Thanks! :D

    I’m so confused. I’m new to crocheting and have made several scarves. but what does it mean to double crochet in the ‘skipped’ single crochet?? Am I working backwards and then forwards again???

    • Wolf Crochet

      October 28, 2014 at 6:43 am

      Yes Jennifer. By working one double crochet behind another you are creating the X pattern. You are actually working one stitch backwards in the row and then working forwards again.

      • Jennifer

        October 28, 2014 at 12:00 pm

        Ok, so when I go backwards in the skipped stitch am I actually doing the double crochet in the single crochet stitch OR in the space between the 2 double crochets??

      • Wolf Crochet

        October 28, 2014 at 4:53 pm

        Jennifer, you work the 2nd double crochet in the single crochet stitch that you skipped. If you look further down in these comments you should find a link to a video on this stitch.

    Love this scarf and had to attempt to make it. Just to be sure the HDC at the end of the 2nd row is shared with one of the cross stitches, is that correct? Or was I supposed to end up with a single crochet stitch that had not been worked? I hope the question makes sense. I am new at this. If I was supposed to end with a single crochet to put the HDC, I’m gonna have to start over. Boo! I hope to share my finished project. I am very excited to make this for my husband.

    • Wolf Crochet

      November 14, 2014 at 6:54 am

      Yes Karen, you have to have an extra stitch left after you finish your last cross set of DCs. Do not start over. Simply work your HDC into your last stitch and when you make the next row of SC you will have the correct number. It will not be noticeable if you block that portion of the scarf carefully so that it lies up with the rest of the stitches. :-)

        Thank you so much for the reply! I appreciate it so much. I hope this mistake doesn’t mess me up. We will see! I’m gonna take your advice and keep going. Thank you again!!!!!
