Matteo Scarf Pattern

Matteo Scarf Pattern

The companion scarf to the Matteo Beanie is here! What really pushed me to finally rework the beanie was that the friend to whom I gifted the original hat requested a matching scarf. Isn’t that the best? When a recipient of your handmade gift uses and adores it and asks for more?!

Just like the beanie the scarf has that same texture of alternating post stitches with double crochets. Since the scarf is worked flat, we’ll be adding the back post double crochet as well. But it’s still a simple two row repeat once you get going!

I decided on a 6″ width for this scarf but you can make yours as wide or narrow as you like. You’ll need to keep an odd stitch count if you make any adjustments, but that’s it! 2 balls of yarn, or about 500 yds gave me a nice long scarf for a tall man 6+ feet.

  1. Stitch multiple is an odd number.
  2. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, like one of these.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC): tutorial here

Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC): made the same way you make the FPDC, but instead of inserting your hook in from the front around the post of the stitch you insert your hook from the back around the post and form a double crochet.
