Where I am at, the cold is already setting in. The nights are definitely cooler and I am starting to pull my scarves and hats out. This is the perfect chance to update my ever-growing scarf collection by making a new one to wear! Many of the patterns I have included in this list are easy and some are more for advanced crocheters, however, all of them are free! Now is the time to start making a scarf if you intend on giving one as a Christmas gift! Of course, you could be like me and wait till the last minute on everything. No need to worry! Many of these scarves can be made in an hour or two as well. At least pin this list so you can come back to it. Here is my list of favorite 10 free crochet scarf patterns!
