Simple Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern


Ive been trying to make one of these for a while but have had to scrap most of the designs I follow due to the patterns being incorrect or too complex for what I want.

I came up with my own pattern that is quick and easy to do (took me about 4 hours in total from start to finish), is warm and comfortable to wear, looks great and has a funky little twist around the edges and through the middle just to make it eye catching.

you can just do this pattern without the border, which will cut down the time it takes to make this significantly by just adding 4 more plain rows, however I think the border makes the scarf a little special.

The border requires you to know how to do the X stitch, if you are unfamiliar on how to do this a written explanation can be found here.

The Finished Product :)

This is what the finished pattern looks like:


 You can either use two colours like I did (as shown above) or you can use just one colour (in which case ignore the colour changes on the pattern below) which looks like this:



 Simple Infinity Scarf Pattern

Using your first colour, chain 166, dc into 5th ch from hook, proceed to dc in previous stitch to create the X as shown in the tutorial provided.

Repeat this pattern to the end of the row, attach your second colour using your preferred method, chain 2 and turn work (make sure to leave a little of your first colour before snipping it off, this makes it easier to attach the two ends together later, do this every time you swap colours)

Row 2: hdc into every chain to the end of the row, chain 2 and turn

Row 3-8: Repeat Rnd 2

Row 9: Attach your first colour again, chain 3, turn work, dc into 5th ch from hook, follow previous steps on creating the X stitch to end of row, attach your second colour again, chain 2 and turn,

As you can see in the picture below, when you chain 3 and then dc into the 5th ch from the hook, it allows you to continue with the X stitch


Row 10-16: Hdc in every ch to the end of the row, chain 2 at the end of every row except for the the end of row 16

Row 17: attach your first colour for the last time, Chain 3 and turn work, dc into 5th ch from hook, follow previous steps on creating the X stitch to the end of the row

Finish off and weave in ends.

Now I haven't found an easy way yet to attach the two ends together, I am still a beginner and still have alot to learn, if you know an easier way to attach the two ends then please feel free to use that method, this is however how I've been doing it:

Fold the scarf in half, aligning the two edges, you can either now use a tapestry needle and some wool of the right colour to sew through both half's of the scarf or you can use a crochet hook to slip stitch through both halves of the scarf.

tie off and weave in ends.

One infinity scarf :)
