Grey Skies Scarf – Free Crochet Pattern
Welcome to the Scarf of the Month Club!
I am so excited about the new gorgeous scarf patterns that we have for you for the month of October!
If you are new to the Scarf of the Month Club, it is a series of free scarf/cowl patterns that are created by The Stitchin’ Mommy (me!) and Oombawka Design. Every month, Rhondda and I will each share one free crochet pattern for a scarf, infinity scarf, or cowl/neckwarmer, through December 2016. Plus, as a bonus, we have some amazing Mystery Designers that will also be providing free scarf patterns. By December, you will have 36 scarf/cowl patterns to choose from to make as gifts or create for yourself!
If you have already started making the patterns in this series, don’t forget to share your progress with us by adding Ravelry Project Pages for the scarves you make! Each pattern post will include a specific pattern link to Ravelry so you can add your own project pages!
We would also love to see your projects on Instagram! Tag us on Instagram at @thestitchinmommy and/or @oombawkadesign and use the hashtag #ScarfoftheMonthClub to share your progress with us!
Also, check out our Facebook Group, Crochet With Us where can share your progress, ask questions, and get help!

Love this scarf pattern. Can you tell me if when you turn and do your ch 1 is this counted as your first stitch?
Hi DiEtta! THe CH 1 in the beginning of the row is not counted as the first st. I just use it to turn and start the next row 🙂
Thanks Amy. Love your blog………🙋🏻❤️ As a senior it’s nice that you share your patterns.
Thank you DiEtta! I am so glad you enjoy my patterns 🙂 Please let me know if you need any other help with anything!
I have been looking all over for a simple scarf pattern as I am not experienced. Thank you. Scarf is working up really nice in red heart unforgettable in colors called stained glass.
