With the cooler weather comes one of my favorite accessories. Not only do they add warmth, but scarves also add a pop of color to all those cute Fall and Winter outfits!
This is a simple crochet pattern using double crochet and chain stitches (V-stitch) to whip up the perfect infinity scarf in an evening.
I used Caron Simply Soft (worsted weight) yarn in Strawberry (I got my yarn at my local craft store) with an H hook to make this scarf. Simply Soft comes in lots of colors and, because it is so soft, it drapes beautifully.
Here’s the pattern:
- Chain 35 loosely.
- Row 1 – Double crochet in 4th chain from hook. (3 skipped chains count as a double crochet). *Skip 2 chains. Double crochet, chain one, double crochet (V-stitch) in next chain.* Repeat from * to* across until last 4 chains. Skip 2 chains. Double crochet in final 2 chains. Turn. (9 V-stitches and 2 double crochet at each end)
- Row 2 – Chain 3 (counts as double crochet). Skip first double crochet. Double crochet in next double crochet. Work V-stitch in chain-one space. Repeat V-stitch across to last 2 double crochet. Double crochet in last 2 double crochet. Turn.
- Repeat Row 2 to desired length. Crochet ends together to make into infinity scarf.
I made my scarf about 70″ long so I would be able to double it once I put it on. I tested the scarf before I crocheted the ends together to make sure I got the length I wanted.
This is a very versatile pattern. It would work great with a chunky yarn – just use a bigger hook. And the colors to choose from are endless!
Infinity scarves make great inexpensive gifts and this one works up quickly and easily. So get your favorite yarn and start stitching 🙂
