Crochet Scarf Pattern for Men (Manly-Man Scarf)
Crochet pattern for a classic and attractive man’s scarf -- reversible and warm.
I LOVE this scarf, and had so much fun designing it! As a crocheter, you were likely drawn to it because of the seemingly complex diamond design and the use of multiple colors. You recognize that these effects are not easy to achieve in crochet -- especially all together in one project -- but this scarf is actually quite easy to make. It utilizes a simple technique I developed called Reversible Image Crochet. This technique eliminates the carrying of multiple strands of yarn. It also gives you clear images that are identical (in opposing colors) on both sides of your work! That’s right, this scarf is COMPLETELY REVERSIBLE! I hope you will give crocheting it a try. I taught this Reversible Image Crochet technique recently, at the Creative Festival in Toronto, and the feedback from my students was really, really positive.
Thank you for checking out my Manly-Man Scarf crochet pattern!
This KnotYourselfOut crochet scarf is named: MANLY-MAN SCARF.
It was designed and crocheted mainly at a family member’s cottage on Georgian Bay (in Ontario, Canada) in the middle of July! The group we were spending time with did not include another crocheter, but there was still a lot of interest in the design process, the technique and yarn used, and especially the scarf’s look. The finished scarf was photographed on a late-winter day in front of the historic Carpet Factory building in Liberty Village in Toronto.
This scarf would obviously make a lovely gift for a man, but it is suitable for a woman as well. My friend, Janet, said she would love to wear it. She has a very urban look and likes green and dark colors.
This crochet scarf pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. It uses standard (US) English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains many step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience.
I am available to answer questions, should you have any.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
