This free modern scarf crochet pattern is surprisingly simple to make! Its lightweight weave makes it a perfect wrap to throw on for chilly summer nights. The free pattern is below or you can purchase the ad-free, printable PDF for $2.50 here.
I know what you’re thinking. “Jess, seriously, that thing must have like 8,000 ends to weave in.”
BUT, before you head off to make a crochet another one skein project, let me tell you that this free modern scarf crochet pattern is WAY more crocheting and WAY less weaving. I think I had about four ends to weave in when this was all said and done because I crocheted over each tail as I attached a new stripe color. (Why it took me about 25 years of crocheting to totally figure this out though I do not know.)
This summer-weight wrap is made with some simple geometric shapes that come together to make a scarf that looks far more complicated than it actually is. If you remember, I recently shared a free boho bag pattern that was made from two triangles and two squares. Well, that bag was actually inspired by this idea for a crochet wrap I had been batting around for months.
To make this free modern scarf crochet pattern, all you need is one basic square and two triangles. Can you spot them?
After I finished this wrap, it occurred to me that these colors of Lion Brand Superwash Merino look very much like the colors of a latte. I invited my sisters to help me name it something related to coffee, Michelle came up with the idea of calling it “The Barista Bib,” which totally cracks me up. In the name of having it appeal to more than the hipster coffee shop workers out there, we settled on “The Logan House Wrap,” named after one of our favorite coffee spots in Denver.
But all you hipster baristas out there, don’t let the name deter you from using this free crochet pattern to make your own barista bib. 😉

Overall Pattern Notes:
• Pattern is worked in one square and two triangles that are joined at the end. A border is added to finish the piece.
• Pattern can be worked in a chunkier yarn with a larger hook to make a winter-weight wrap.
• Reference chart below for visual explanation.
• To switch colors, simply finish one row in the first color. Begin the following row with the new color.
• Crochet over yarn tails as you switch colors and you will end up with very few, if any, ends to weave in at the end! (See photo below.)
• The square is worked in the round. Do not turn work at the end of each row.
• Regarding the end of Round 2 – because the first 3 ch at the beginning of Round 1 counts as 1 dc, be sure to count that ch-3 as a dc and work into it as a normal st when you’re completing Round 2. This will ensure that you have the same number of stitches per side all around your square.
Foundation Round: With Color A, ch 4, sl st to first ch to form a circle.
Round 1: Ch 5 (counts as 1 dc and 2-ch sp), (3 dc in ring, ch 2) 3 times, 2 dc in ring, sl st to 3rd of 5-ch from beginning of round to join. (3 per side)
Round 2: 1 sl st into 1st sp, ch 5 (counts as 1 sc and 2-ch sp), 2 dc in same sp, *1 dc in each dc to next sp, work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) all in next sp; repeat from * twice more, 1 dc in each dc to next sp, 1 dc in same sp as ch-5, sl st to 3rd of 5-ch from beginning of round to join. (7 per side)
Round 3: Repeat Round 2. (11 per side)
Round 4: Using color B, repeat Round 2. (15 per side)
Round 5: Using color A, repeat Round 2. (19 per side)
Rounds 6-7: Using color B, repeat Round 2. (23, 27 per side)
Rounds 8-10: Using color A, repeat Round 2. (31, 35, 39 per side)
Round 11: Using color B, repeat Round 2. (43 per side)
Round 12-16: Using color A, repeat Round 2. (47, 51, 55, 59, 63 per side)
Round 17-18: Using color B, repeat Round 2. (67, 71 per side)
Round 19-20: Using color A, repeat Round 2. (75, 79 per side)
• To switch colors, use the color of the upcoming row to complete the final yo of the row you’re finishing. Proceed with new color in the next row.
• Crochet over yarn tails as you switch colors and you will end up with very few, if any, ends to weave in at the end! (See photo in “Square” section.)
• The triangles are worked in rows. Turn work at the end of each row.
• IMPORTANT: Work the ch and first two dc of a row as well as the final three dc of the row extra loosely to keep the longest edge of the triangle flat and not curving in.
Foundation Round: Using Color B, ch 4, sl st to first ch to form a circle.
Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc in circle, ch 2, 3 dc in circle, turn. (3 per side)
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc in first st, dc in each dc until corner; work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) all in corner sp, dc in each dc until 1 dc remains, 3 dc in last dc, turn. (7 per side)
Row 3: Repeat row 2. (Switch to Color A in final dc as described above.) (11 per side)
Row 4: Using color A, repeat row 2. (15 per side)
Row 5: Using color B, repeat row 2. (19 per side)
Rows 6-7: Using color A, repeat row 2. (23, 27 per side)
Rows 8-10: Using color B, repeat row 2. (31, 35, 39 per side)
Row 11: Using color A, repeat row 2. (43 per side)
Row 12-16: Using color B, repeat row 2. (47, 51, 55, 59, 63 per side)
Row 17: Using color A, repeat row 2. (67 per side)
Row 18-20: Using color B, repeat row 2. (71, 75, 79 per side)
Block pieces so that the shorter triangle sides are the same length as the sides of the square. If using Lion Brand Superwash Merino as in the sample, you can pin your pieces down, lightly spritz them with water and let them dry overnight.
Using stitch markers or safety pins, pin pieces together with one shorter side of each triangle touching consecutive sides of the square.
Sew the triangle sides to the square using the mattress stitch. (Moogly has a great mattress stitch tutorial.)
• See photo below for a visual explanation of border.
With WS* of scarf facing, join MC at in ch-2 sp at bottom corner of the square.
Slanted triangle side: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc in same sp, dc in each dc working 2 dc into the ch-spaces at the corners of the triangle pieces.
Continue dc in each dc until the upper corner of the wrap, (2 dc, ch 2, 4 dc) in the corner space.
Top edge: 3 dc in each row along the top edge of the scarf. (See photo E.) (4 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the second corner space.
Slanted triangle side: dc in each dc working 2 dc into the ch-spaces at the corners of the triangle pieces, 2 dc in ch-2 sp at bottom corner of the square, ch 2, sl st to 3rd ch from beginning of round to join.
* The final border is worked with the WS facing to help avoid any curling of the wrap. If this isn’t a concern, feel free to work with RS facing.
Weave in any remaining ends.
Toss on your latte-colored wrap and head out to treat yourself to a latte-colored latte!
