Free Crochet Pattern: Eastside Scarf

When I first started knitting and crocheting, all I made were scarves. Chunky scarves, ribbed scarves, stiff and unwearable scarves.

A scarf is the perfect pandemic project for those who want to learn a new stitch pattern without committing to something you’ll never finish. (Ahem, abandoned blanket #3, incomplete sweater #5, back panel of a cardigan.)

This holiday season, my gift to you is the Eastside Scarf crochet pattern — the least successful pattern design in my online shop — for free! (Or you can purchase the printer-friendly version to support a small business. It will be yours to keep forever and ever!)

This crochet project was intentionally designed to look like a knitted ribbed scarf. It is worked flat and joined together at the ends to create a beautiful ribbed infinity scarf. Any medium weight yarn can be used.

As with any patterns, please don’t copy and resell the instructions. Feel free to post photos of the #eastsidescarf, sell your finished creations and tag me @nextstitch.
