Stripes and Blocks Scarf

The Leaping Stripes and Blocks stitch pattern has been very popular here at Moogly, and I’ve had several requests for a scarf – and you know I love requests! I think this pattern is perfect for menswear, so I designed the Stripes and Blocks scarf in masculine colors – but it would look lovely in bright rainbows, jewel tones, soft pastels, you name it! It’s perfectly unisex!

The Stripes and Blocks Scarf is about 6 feet long, but if you want it longer or shorter, that’s easy enough – just stop when you’re done, or keep going in the pattern – it’s up to you! There’s enough leftover Lion Brand Heartland to make it a lot longer if that’s what you’re looking for – or to make 2 for the kids! You could even whip stitch the ends together for an infinity scarf… or add fringe! I can’t wait to see how you all make your own versions!

And that’s the Stripes and Blocks Scarf! Easy, fun, and perfect for both men and women. This pattern would be great crocheted in your favorite school or team colors, and you can use as many colors as you like – over 3 and you may wish to cut the yarn between stripes though, as the floats along the sides tend to get a little bulky. I hope you enjoy this free crochet scarf pattern!

    Hi Tamara,
    Thank you so much for all that you do to provide us with so many beautiful patterns and sharing your expertise through your wonderful tutorials!
    This pattern is awesome! I’d like to give it a try as an afghan. Would you be able to provide what the stitch count would be to make it wider?

    Thank you so much,
    Laurie

    I want to make this for grandkids for Christmas but I only want to use two colors. Will I still do two rows of each before a color change? After getting it started do I use row 3 and 4 to keep going?

      Tamara Kelly says

      Yes, you have it just right – 2 rows of each color, repeat rows 3 and 4 until you have the length you want. :)

    Appreciable”” “Stripes and Blocks Scarf” I need to make this for grandkids for Christmas yet I just need to utilize two hues. Will despite everything I do two lines of each before a shading change? In the wake of kicking it off do I utilize line 3 and 4 to continue onward?

      Hi Jessica!
      Thank you! Just 2 colors will work well, just switch back and forth every 2 rows, repeating Rows 3 and 4. :)
