Moss stitch scarves are simple, not very warm, gender-neutral (if chosen right colors), and look the same on both sides. So, I have rounded up some free crochet moss stitch scarf patterns that are easy for beginners and intermediate crocheters. They will use various color-changing techniques and embellishments to produce variations in the look of the stitch that are all beautiful and stylish. So, great to practice that stitch in a beautiful way. Let’s get started!
How is a moss stitch scarf crocheted?
Crocheting moss stitch scarf is easier than any type. Here is how:
- Gather the supplies like yarn and crochet hooks.
- Make slip knot and foundation row, and start working your moss stitch in the second row. It will only need a chain, single crochet, and stitch skipping. You can learn it from the following video tutorial:
- Keep making rows of moss stitch until you get the desired length of the scarf.
- You can also change the yarn color in each row.
Which yarn should I use for the moss stitch scarf?
While you can use any weight for scarves, a Moss Stitched crochet scarf works best with the worsted or DK weight. You will notice this principle in the patterns throughout the list. So, there is nothing bad in following the recommendations of tutors.
Experts usually recommend merino wool fiber for scarves, which I used in the crochet cowl, as it is soft, warm, and not scratchy.
Always make a gauge swatch before you start crocheting the main scarf to get the intended size.

The biscuit on the needle starts with a simple chain stitch to form the scarf’s length. The stitches then build upon this primary chain into a moss stitch pattern, creating a delicate texture. The pattern is easy to replicate across each row, leading to a steady rhythm once the flow gets established. As the scarf progresses, it alternates colors to give depth and interest to the pattern. As a finishing touch, tassels are attached at both ends of the scarf, enhancing its appeal.

Start by creating a slip knot and make a chain of 40 stitches (or how broad you desire your scarf to be). Begin your moss stitch into the second chain from your hook.

Creating the Crochet Moss Stitch Striped Scarf involves following an easy and repetitive pattern. Starting with a simple slip knot and a chain of 32 stitches, the primary moss stitch begins from the second chain and continues across. By skipping some chains and maintaining a rhythm, you create a lovely textured pattern. For a color switch, the working yarn isn’t trimmed; it’s left hanging while the new color is introduced. This neat trick creates visually appealing, seamless color transitions throughout the scarf. Remember, the first two rows require gentle handling, but as you progress, you can work with normal tension. Just keep track of the transition, ensuring the stitch completed with the new color to enhance the visual appeal.
