Boys Camo Crocheted Scarf ~ Free Pattern

It has been so cold here over the last two weeks.  No, I’m not going to tell you the temp, because if you live in the north where it is COLD you will just laugh at what a wimp I have become.  It’s enough to say that my kiddos are cold and needed something more than jackets to keep them warm.

Abba seemed the least equipet to deal with the cold so I made her an infinity scarf {pattern to come at a later date}, and then Oakley asked me where his scarf was.  I should have known and been more prepared, so I made him one quickly.

I used Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Dad’s Scarf. I LOVE it! It’s so soft and the color way is perfect for a little boy, who is in a stage of life where everything is better in camo.

I like the ribbed affect of this pattern, it adds in some extra texture.

Boys Camo Crocheted Scarf
by: Kadie (

Yarn ~ Bernat Softee Chunky; colorway Dad’s Scarf

Hook ~ Size H

Abbreviations :

BLO ~  Back Loop Only

FLO ~ Front Loop Only

CH~ Chain

SC ~ Single Crochet

Special instructions ~ Crocheting in the front or black loop only is what creates the ridges in this scarf.  If you notice that your ridges have started to show up on the wrong side of your scarf it’s because you have switched which loop you are crocheting in.

Gauge ~ not important for this project.

Difficulty ~ Easy + {not a hard project, however you do have to pay attention to what loop you are crocheting into}

Start by making a chain of 21.

Row 1 ~ SC into second ch from the hook. SC to end of ch. {20 sc} Ch 1 and turn.

Row 2 ~ SC into BLO in each stitch {20 sc} Ch 1 and turn.

Row 3 ~ SC into FLO in each stitch {20 sc} Ch 1 and turn.

Row 4 ~ repeat Row 2

Row 5 ~ repeat Row 3

Row 6 – End of scarf ~ repeat Rows 2 and 3 alternating as in Row 4 and 5.  Do this for as many rows as you want the length of the scarf to be.   I made mine 63 rows long, or one skein of yarn, and it is a great length for my 6 year old son. If you are making this for an older child or adult you can add on rows as needed.

Tie off and weave in ends.

Happy Crocheting, and stay warm!
