The Diamond Scarf is a free crochet pattern. There is the option of adding surface crochet to the diamond pattern to make it pop.
Marilyn Monroe once said, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Oh, she meant the stone? Well, I’m talking about the geometric shape. And who doesn’t just love being wrapped in quadrilaterals? But this scarf, isn’t just for math nerds. It’s beautiful design with optional surface crochet detailing will let you customize it to fit your own style. However if you want to get in touch with your math side, a diamond is also known as a rhombus.
Whether you are a fan of polygons or stones, this is the scarf for you! It’s beautiful geometric pattern is only enhanced by the optional surface crochet.
This Diamond Scarf, a free crochet pattern, is super pretty and has a surface crochet stitch surrounding the diamond stitch. However, you do not have to add the surface crochet, but if you do it does bring out the diamond shape even more.
But even without the surface crochet it is super pretty and has a very lacy look. There is not much you will need for this scarf in order to crochet it.
I plan on making many more of this gorgeous scarf, because it makes the perfect gift. I think any girl or women would be happy to wear this Diamond Scarf.
And as many of my free crochet patterns, even this Diamond Scarf comes with at least one video tutorial. This time you actually get 2 video tutorials. One shows you how to crochet the Diamond Stitch for the Diamond Scarf. The other video shows you how to add the pretty surface crochet to give the scarf the extra little touch of elegance.
Although the Diamond stitch looks hard to crochet, it is actually very easy and fast to make and just repeats for a certain amount of rows to create this pretty Diamond Scarf.
I use 2 different kinds of yarn for this free crochet pattern. You are not required to use the same colors or yarn types as this is a scarf and gauge is not too important, but you try to stick with the thickness of the type of yarn I used.
So, let me know tell you how you will need to make this Diamond Scarf and how to make this free crochet pattern.
You will need:
- 5.0mm hook
- Red Heart with Love yarn in color blueberry

This scarf is made with a multiple of 10+7. This pattern calls for 27 stitches, but feel free to add or subtract 10 to adjust the width of the scarf.

Repeat rows 2-5 until the scarf is the length you desire. Mine is 53 inches long. Feel free to make it longer.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
If you do not want to add the surface crochet, that is fine. It will look like this then:
Add the metallic surface stitch:
The metallic yarn is used to crochet over the lacy holes that are around the diamond pattern to bring the diamond more to light.
You start on the bottom and work your way up. Each hole gets one surface crochet, besides the big holes, they get an extra chain. You work your way from the bottom to one side of the edge of the scarf, then you do a 90 degree turn and keep going. You do that until you reach the top.
You do this whole process 4 times in total until all the diamonds are framed with the metallic yarn. Then fasten off and weave in the ends.
You are done.
