    Which is the most common plural form of scarf, is it scarf or scarves?

    According to many dictionaries the plural form of the word "scarf" is either "scarfs" or "scarves". Tell me which one of these two is the most natural and is more commonly used by native speakers.

    Singular Plural
    Scarf Scarfs, Scarves

    Personally, I use scarves.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Scarves.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
