A Classic Rib Crochet Scarf with a Twist

I love to crochet for my husband and lately, he is a fan of the classic dapper look. I was looking for a nice ribbed scarf with no fringe but also wasn’t too plain. The Dapper Rib crochet scarf ended up being the result.

It uses two different-sized stitches to have a different look on each side of the scarf and at each end there is a point where we reverse the stitch so that it changes the look. This gives the ends of the scarf a unique look.

Changing the Scarf Size

For this scarf, I used two skeins of yarn. If you are okay with using more then you can make this scarf wider by working extra rows.

If you want to make the scarf longer, you can just add as many chains as you would like to the starting chain. You will want to make sure to add the same number of extra chains to the number of stitches in the middle section of the scarf.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large-font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

The Dapper Rib Crochet Scarf Pattern

-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1 or CH2, turning chain, as a stitch.
– In the video, you will see me use a technique where I cani 1 instead of chaining 2 for the beginning of a row that starts with double crochets. You can follow the video or the written pattern, both techniques work.
– The Dapper Crochet Scarf pattern is copyrighted by Winding Road Crochet.
– You can make the scarf longer by adding any number of chains to the starting chain. You just need to add the same number of stitches to the middle section of each scarf row.

CH 253

Row 1: SC in second CH from the hook, SC in the next 14 CHs. HDC in the next CH, DC in the next 220 CHs, HDC in the next CH, SC in the last 15 CHs.

Note: If you adjusted the length of the scarf you will add the additional stitches to the very middle stitch count of the row. For example, if you added 10 chains to the starting chain, you will work 230 stitches of double crochet in row 1 instead of 220. In row 2 you will work 230 single crochet instead of 220.

Row 2: CH2, turn, BLODC in the first 15 STs. BLOHDC in the next ST, BLOSC in the next 220 STs, BLOHDC in the next ST, BLODC in the last 15 STs.

Row 3: CH2, turn, BLOSC in the first 15 STs. BLOHDC in the next ST, BLODC in the next 220 STs, BLOHDC in the next ST, BLOSC in the last 15 STs.

Rows 4-19: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 19 rows.

Fasten off after row 19 and weave in your ends. Work additional repeats of Rows 2 and 3 if you want the scarf to be wider.

Now your Dapper Rib Crochet Scarf is complete and ready to be enjoyed. They work up fast and make a great gift.
