1. Galaxy Scarf
If you’re not a knitter, this galaxy scarf is an out-of-this-world way to make something beautiful for someone you love this Christmas! OK, so you’ll be cheating a bit by buying a cheap black scarf, but the results are gorgeous! Clever Scarves.net have the full tutorial.
2. Fox Stole
We all know that fur is murder, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your quirkier friends a fancy fox stole for Christmas. This fun, knitted take on the traditional version is available as a pattern via Etsy.
3. Colourblock Infinity Scarf
We love this elegant infinity colourblock scarf tutorial from Designed by Dawn Nicole. Not only is it blissfully easy to sew together, it’s also perfect if you have some old wardrobe items to upcycle.
4. Upcycled Jumper Scarf
Old winter jumpers seen better days? Time to turn them into this fabulous no-knit scarf from HGTV. You’ll need two old jumpers, scissors and a needle and thread (or a sewing machine). Couldn’t be simpler or cosier!
5. Circle Pocket Scarf
This gorgeous circle scarf comes with a hidden pocket for extra cosiness come wintertime! The PDF pattern will set you back just $5 from Quince & Co.
6. Take a Bow Scarf
Turn two plain old scarves into one phenomenal piece of neckwear. This version from All Day Chic was made for a youngster, but scaling it up should be easy as pie!
7. Crochet Pocket Scarf
This free pattern from Lion Brand turns into a lovely long pocket scarf, perfect for keeping your neck and mitts warm on long wintry walks! Great for intermediate crocheters.
8. Plaited Crochet Scarf
We luuurve this deceptively simple plaited scarf from Rookie Crafter. If you’ve got the crochet basics down, you can whip this beauty up in next to no time. We especially love it in this on trend mustard shade!
