Just For Him – Classic Ribbed Scarf Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

The Just For Him – Classic Ribbed Scarf Patterncan be made to any size – just chain the number of chains you need to reach the length you want for your scarf and then begin! Work your project to the width you want and finish off. Quick and easy AND you can substitute any yarn and hook combination.

I chose to make my scarf 72 inches long by 5 inches wide and I have included the specific instructions for this size below. One note: my yarn called for a 6 mm hook but I opted for a 5.5 mm instead.

This scarf is super soft and stretchy – and I have to admit I think I may just keep it for myself!

This is just one of the Scarf of the Month Club Free Patterns for the month of June 2016!

Notes

  • Do NOT count the ch 2 as a stitch
  • Do NOT work into the ch 2 (this gives us a nice edge on the scarf – which also means less work for us in the end as we do not need to edge the sides!)

Ch 2 - Just For Him - Classic Ribbed Scarf Free Pattern oombawkadesigncrochet

  • Stitch Multiple of 1 + 2
  • The 3rd loop (or FRONT bar) of the hdc is the frontmost loop of the hdc (facing you). It is found beneath the front loop of the stitch for this project since we are working ‘flat’ (or back and forth) rather than in rounds.

  1. I just made this scarf and is perfect.
    I had a hard time in the beginning, but I got it and it flowed nicely. Thank you for this pattern is really pretty. I made it in a dark grey as a gift.

  2. i love this ribbed scarf, i’m struggling without a video, once i see it “in action” i can do it…..i’m a visual learner.

  3. I’m sorry you are having trouble Helen. There should only be one window popping up for push engage and if you have cookies enabled once you decline that it goes away. All the ads can be closed with the x button in the corner of the ad if they are bothering you.

  4. I can hardly navigate your website with all the ads and windows popping up…

  5. Hi Kei, No I do not have a video tutorial for this scarf. I’ve added it to my list of tutorials to film this year. Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  6. Hi — I am looking to make this scarf but I have never crocheted before and I’m wondering if you have a video of this? Thank you!

  7. Hi Alana, You could add the different color working across the edge in rows but it will be working in the opposite direction from the rest of the scarf. The best way would be to change colors for that section and weave in the ends. It would give you a much more seamless and neater finished project. All the best, Rhondda

  8. How would I add 4 or so inches to each end in a different color? I really don’t want to have to crochet 4 inches, change colors, and repeat for each row. Is there an easy way? Thank you.

  9. Hi Mary, if this is the beginning edge that is rolling you could go up a hook size. If this is the side edges (end of rows) you could add an extra chain stitch. I didn’t find mine rolled but it could be that you are crocheting a bit tighter than I do – I tend to have a relaxed crochet stitch (unless I’m working on amigurumi). Other than those ideas, a gentle blocking might be the answer. The stitches should relax a bit on their own after they have been worn for a while so it should hopefully resolve itself with use. Hope this helps a bit, Rhondda

  10. I’m having trouble with the edges wanting to roll together. Is there any tricks to keep this from happening?

  11. Hi Chris, No the edges did not roll on this design. I have heard though that the rib stitch done in knitting and Tunisian crochet do tend to roll. When I tried Tunisian my edges curved and rolled and the person who was showing me said I could counter that by using a larger hook for the first row of the project. I wonder if that can be done in knitting too? I’m not sure as I am a novice knitter only. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  12. This looks like a wonderful pattern. Do you know if the edges roll in on this pattern? I have just completely frogged a 5 ft long knitted scarf that rolled terribly, despite wet blocking ank drying.
    Thanks for any insight.

  13. What great instructions!! Thank you! Step by step is what I need and they were clear and concise. 🙂

    Thank you so much!
