I made this scarf as a Christmas present for my Father-in-law, so I wanted to wait until after I gave it to him before sharing it with you. He loved it, and I’m hoping you will too! The double layer of mesh creates a thick, pillowy, cloud like fabric that is very soft and warm. The ends are left open, and are great for sticking cold hands into!
It’s an easy pattern with only basic stitches, and is a great introduction to working in continuous rounds. The yardage listed is what was used for the scarf shown. This scarf can really be made in any length, as desired – for the sample shown here, I just kept going until I ran out of yarn.

Mesh Tube Scarf
- 500-600 yds of worsted weight yarn. Sample shown was made with 3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease
- Size J/10 (6mm) crochet hook
- Yarn needle
Easy – basic stitches, worked in continuous rounds.
Approximately 8″ wide. Can be made to desired length. Sample shown is about 5 feet long.
12 hdc x 10 rows should be approximately 4″ square. Exact gauge is not important for this pattern – after a few rows, check the width of the scarf and it should be about 8″ wide.
- ch = chain
- hdc = half double crochet
- fhdc = foundation half double crochet
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- sp(s) = space(s)
- sk = skip
- For Rnd 1, the fhdc technique is recommended and a link to great tutorial is provided in the Recommended Resources section below. If you are not comfortable with or do not like that technique, you can use the alternate Rnd 1 instead.
- Except for the first and last rounds, this pattern is worked in continuous rounds. This means you don’t join your round with a slip stitch, you just keep going around and around. Normally you would need to use a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch of each round, but that is not necessary for this pattern.
- I do not recommend trying to sew the ends of the scarf shut – it’s very likely the scarf will twist if you try. If you do try, make sure to lay the scarf out completely flat and make sure it’s not twisted when sewing the 2nd end.
- If you would like to make the scarf narrower or wider, you can add or subtract stitches. As long as you have an odd number of stitches on Rnd 1, it will work.

Rnd 1: Work 49 fhdc. Being careful not to twist your work, join with a sl st in first st to form a circle.
Alternate Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 50, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Being careful not to twist your work, join with a sl st in first st to form a circle. (49 hdc)
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in first st, (ch 1, sk next st, hdc in next st) around, do not join.
Rnd 3: (Ch 1, sk next st, hdc in next ch sp) around, do not join.
Repeat Rnd 3 until desired length is reached. It is not important to keep track of where each round starts and ends, and it is not important to stop at the end of a round. Just start the last round wherever you stop.
Last Rnd: (Hdc in next st, hdc in next sp) 23 times, hdc in next st, sc in last sp, sl st in next st, fasten off. (48 hdc, 1 sc)
- Weave in all ends
I hope you enjoy the pattern!
