Free Crochet Winter Scarf Patterns

Every Monday afternoon I take my kids horse riding on what must be the coldest, windiest field in the world! My neck gets so cold I decided it was time to crochet a warm cozy scarf! And boy did I find so many CUTE crochet winter scarf patterns to choose from, I thought I’d better share them with you too!

All of the scarves in this collection are your traditional “rectangle” scarf, if you prefer the cowl variety you need to take a look at our infinity scarf crochet patterns collection instead.


Ooh so many cute crochet winter scarf patterns I'm not sure which one to make first!

1 | Miss Millie Scarf


Diamond Crochet Scarf Free Pattern

This scarf is just beautiful with those vibrant colors and that white diamond overlay!

It’s actually a simpler pattern than it looks, made with double crochet stitches, and there’s no color joining needed because it’s made with a self-striping yarn cake.
