This simple and easy Tunisian Crochet Man Scarf is the right Tunisian crochet project to make something special for the man in your family or friend, and get started at Tunisian crochet!
Ideally, crocheting a man’s scarf is the easiest thing on earth. No difficult stitches, no fluffy details.
However, I am not sure why but finding the right crochet idea for a man can be so complicated that it often ends up being more like a “mission impossible”!
The “mission impossible” situation was exactly where I was when I started thinking about a crochet present for my brother.
Then I thought, let’s just make it plain and simple but super soft and warm!
That’s how I grabbed my crochet hook and started making this diagonal lattice Tunisian crochet scarf!
Personalize Your Scarf!
This scarf is the perfect project to use up those half skeins and all the scarps that are sitting around in your craft room.
For my scarf, I used two leftover skeins of Katia Azteca, one in a kind of black/grey color (colorway 7801) and one in blueish colors (colorway 7823).
This was a beautiful coincidence for me to have these colors because they happen to be the colors of Inter, my brother’s favorite football club!
I also added some yellow details using surface crochet. Since this is not an essential element of the scarf, I will just leave it here, but you can have fun adding some details using some contrasting color yarn.

- Aran (4, Medium) Yarn. I used Katia Azteca (colorways 7801 and 7823).

It does not necessarily have to be a Tunisian crochet hook. If you hold your hook from the end making sure not to lose stitches, your regular crochet hook might work just fine.
