Crochet scarves are great. They can be super easy to make so they are a good beginner project or quick crochet project. However they are also large enough to be terrific for working out interesting designs. A simple crochet scarf can be adorable as well as functional. However, since the crochet scarf pattern is so common, many of the available patterns start to look the same after awhile. That’s why I decided to put together a roundup of truly unique crochet scarves.

Here are ten unique crochet scarves from ten different categories for a total of 100 unique crochet scarves. The ten categories are freeform scarves, infinity scarves, necklace/ lariats, kids scarves, oversized scarves, novelty yarn scarves, tapestry crochet scarves, hooded scarves, scarves for men and finally the TRULY UNFORGETTABLE SCARVES. The links below each photo take you to the Etsy store or other place I saw the scarf online. (The feature image at the top of the post is my three-scarfs-braided-crochet-scarf).

      @Anastacia Knits That’s true – it did take hours upon hours but it was so fun to do!! I loved looking through all of the great crochet scarves that people are creating and have created in the recent past and seeing which ones truly stood out and then asking myself why they stood out to me.
