Free Crochet Scarf Pattern: Eccentric Tie Scarf

Eccentric Tie Scarf is a super quick, super thick and super easy crochet scarf pattern to make in one day! With this pattern you’ll be able to create an item so unique, that everybody will ask where you’ve got it!

The scarf is light (though made of #6 super bulky weight yarn), because there`s no need to wrap it around your neck several times. Still, it will keep you warm and all snugly. Thanks to the practical fastener, it’s so versatile and can be worn in many different ways and different combinations.

Just pull your scarf through the fastener (which you can make in any of the matching colors and embellish with a button) and you`ll have a versatile, eye catching item for many occasions. You can add fringe or leave it without.

This crochet scarf is great stash buster, because it can be made with two strands of #4 worsted (or actually any of your favorite) yarn held together.

You can match it up with the Eccentric Beanie and you`re ready to go!

It`s a great last-minute gift for your mother, sister or a friend, the kind of gift they would enjoy wearing.

sc – single crochet

sc blo – single crochet back loop only

dc – double crochet

fcr dc – front cross double crochet stitch

sk – skip

st(s) – stitch(es)

Gauge is not critical for this project. Still, if you want an exact measurement as per pattern:

8 dc stitches /4 rows = 10cm/4 in square


  • Ch1 at the beginning of row does not count as a st.
  • Ch2 at the beginning of row counts as a st.
  • This scarf is worked widthwise, in rows, until finishing the row 30.
  • The final portion of the scarf is worked in two separate parts, but without fastening off. Part I is worked with sc blo sts along the chain back and forth (see the STITCH EXPLANATION) attaching it to the main body of the scarf with sl sts. Part II is worked with sc blo sts in remaining 8 sts of the 30th row of the main body.
  • The rows of the Part I and Part II are numbered starting from 1 again.


Sc blo – insert your hook into the back loop (not both loops as you normally would) and make your single crochet stitch

Fcr dc – skip next st, dc in next st; dc in skipped st (working in front of last st made)

Once you finish the main body of the scarf, you`ll chain 21, turn and work 20 sc sts down the chain. Then, you will sl st into the next available st (1st st of the last row of the main body) and sl st into the next st. Turn, ch1, sc blo into each of 20 sc sts previously made (skipping 2 sl sts made). Turn, ch1, sc blo in each of 20 sc blo sts made, sl st in next 2 sts of the last row of main body. Turn and repeat the same.
