In 2020 I made a few infinity scarves as Christmas presents and they were so well received, and so simple to make, that I thought it would be a nice idea to share the pattern with you so you can get cracking on winter warmers for 2021 for yourself or family and friends.
First up, I wanted to hire a beautiful model, go to a luxurious location and get some gorgeous lifestyle pictures to share with this post however, there was just me and it was nippy out, so, yeah – this.
Anyhoo, it’s a nice warm scarf and keeps the back of ya kneck and chest warm. Not sure if those are things you like kept warm but you can always wrap the scarf around anything else you like.
Thankfully this pattern is very easy to follow, even for the novice crochet hooker.
Took me a weekend to finish but if you can only do an hour or two each day, will probably take around a week.
It measures around 60 inches and you can leave it open ended or whip stitch/slip stitch the ends together for an infinity scarf, like what I did. Up to you.
This pattern should be worked with 2 x 100g balls of either:
Double knit (8 ply) using a 4mm crochet hook
Aran yarn using a 4.25mm crochet hook
I highly recommend the Cygnet Yarns “Boho Spirit” range – the colour blends are so beautiful and the yarn very soft!
ch – Chain.
dc – Double Crochet. (US – Single Crochet).
tr – Treble Crochet. (US – Double Crochet).
ch sp – Chain Space.
Cluster1 (shown in green) [tr1 in next dc, ch1, miss one dc, tr into next dc].
Row 1 – ch 37. Turn.
Row 2 – dc in second chain from hook. dc in each ch until end of row. Turn.
Row 3 – ch 3. tr in 3rd dc from previous row. Cluster1 until end of row. Turn.
Row 4 – ch 1. *dc in ch sp. dc in next two tr. Repeat from * to end of row.
Row 5 – ch 3. tr in 3rd dc from previous row. Cluster1 until end of row. Turn.
Repeat rows 4 & 5 until you have about 60 inches of scarf or have used up most of the yarn.
If you would like, fold the scarf in half and slip stitch across the two edges.
If worked as above, this scarf will have a width of approximately 9 inches. For a different width of scarf, this pattern can be worked over multiples of 9 chains + 1. For example, in this pattern there are 36 chains + 1 to give the 37 in row 1.
Each 100g ball of yarn will give you approximately 30 inches of scarf and one wrap around the neck. This pattern will give you a scarf that will wrap twice around. For more wraps, add another 100g ball per wrap required.
Can’t say that this was my best video ever but I hopefully covered all of the relevant points.
