UPDATE: I put together a corner to corner crochet video tutorial with lots of tips for beginners which you can find here. This photo tutorial on how to read a c2c graph and this tutorial on how to change colors and keep your yarn under control might be helpful as well! You can find all my free c2c crochet patterns here.
I don't know what took me so long to discover corner-to-corner crochet. Seriously. If you haven't tried what I like to call "painting by number with yarn" yet, you are missing out on a whole new way to create patterns in your crochet projects. Be sure to check out my free corner-to-corner Christmas afghan patterns for more free c2c graph patterns.
Often c2c crochet is used to create character patterns, but as soon as Boye Yarn Crafts invited me to participate in their super scarf blog hop, I knew the massive neck warmer I had in mind would be perfect for c2c. (If you're totally new to corner-to-corner crochet like I was three months ago, this video and these resources are how I taught myself.)
If you feel intimidated to crochet snowflakes into a scarf, try this beginner corner-to-corner blanket pattern to practice the basics of C2C. Then come back and try this pattern!
I took inspiration from classic Nordic sweaters for this pattern. And while I (unwittingly) used a color palette that's almost identical to my Desert Winds Triangle Scarf, I think this super scarf would be awesome in more masculine colors, like red, dark grey or blue, too. I mean, if Lenny Kravitz can rock this, your man definitely needs his own bulky, oversized neck blanket, right?
Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn ended up being absolutely perfect for this free crochet super scarf pattern. The chunky texture of this yarn is so organic and I love imagining it coming straight to me from the sheep. I've got some serious prairie girl fantasies that this 100% wool yarn totally satisfies.

• Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn: (6) Grey, (2) Aran, (1) Pale Blush, (1) Taupe, (1) Natural
• Tapestry needle
• Size I [5.5 mm] crochet hook
• Two printed copies of my Nordic c2c crochet chart
5 c2c squares = 4”
Gauge is not critical for this pattern.
Abbreviations:hdc – half double crochet
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
- This scarf is worked using the corner to corner (c2c) crochet technique first from the bottom of the graph up, then with a large section of grey c2c squares in the middle (not shown on the detailed graph) and finished up by working the graph from the top down. Therefore, you’ll want to print two copies of the graph pages if you like to cross off the rows as you go. Tape all three pages of the graph together in order (1, 2, 3) to form a complete chart.
- It is very helpful to crochet over your yarn ends as you go in this pattern so that you have fewer to weave in at the end. If you’re diligent as you go, you’ll have surprisingly few left that need to be woven in with a tapestry needle.
- IMPORTANT: To achieve the listed dimensions, work the C2C method using half double crochet (hdc) stitches. Therefore, to add a new square at the beginning of the row, you’ll ch 5 and work the first hdc into the third ch from the hook. At the beginning of each new square (after the slip stitch), ch 2 and then proceed with 3 hdc to finish the box.
1st Third of the Scarf:
Using hdc as outlined above, work the graph beginning at row 1 until row 53.
2nd Third of the Scarf:
With only grey yarn, cont. in established c2c pattern (using hdc) for 36 rows.
3rd Third of the Scarf:
Rotate second copy of the graph 180 degrees. Work the graph, beginning at row 53 until row 1.
Fasten off and weave in any remaining ends.
Add fringe to every other c2c square at the bottom of each side of the scarf. To do this, cut “Natural” colored yarn into 21” pieces. Combine four strands, fold them in half and use a crochet hook to pull them from the back of the scarf through to the front. Then pull the strands through the loop that is created. Trim as desired.
Book a one way ticket to the North Pole, because my friend, you are definitely cold weather ready!
