It’s January 2019!! Can you believe it!?!?! Is it cold where you live? Here in Alabama it can be cold in January – or it can be warm…you just never know. So I created this pattern for a Chunky Crochet Infinity Scarf for those chilly days that may come along.
I used 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together to crochet this scarf. But I think it would work great with 1 strand of a bulky yarn as well. Here’s the pattern…
Chunky Crochet Infinity Scarf
7 to 7.5 ounces worsted weight yarn
Crochet with 2 strands held together – I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Grey Marble
Stitches used (US terms)
Chain – ch
Half double crochet – hdc
Back loop only – blo
Note: ch 2 counts as a stitch
Ch 17 using 2 strands of yarn held together.
Row 1: hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across. Turn. (16 stitches)
Row 2: ch 2. Skip 1st stitch. Hdc in blo of next stitch and in each stitch across, ending with hdc in top of turning ch from previous row. Turn. (16 stitches)
Rows 3 – 10: Repeat row 2.
Row 11: ch 3 (counts as 1 hdc and 1 ch). Skip 1st stitch. Hdc in next stitch. * ch 1, skip 1 stitch, hdc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * across, ending with hdc in 2nd ch of ch 3 from previous row. Turn. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Row 12: ch 3 (counts as 1 hdc and 1 ch). Skip 1st hdc and 1st ch 1 space. Hdc in next hdc. *ch 1, skip ch 1 space, hdc in next hdc* Repeat from * to * across, ending with hdc in 2nd ch of ch 3 from previous row. Turn. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Rows 13 – 30: Repeat row 12. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Row 31: ch 2. Skip 1st hdc. *Hdc in next ch, hdc in next hdc* Repeat from * to * across, ending with hdc in 2nd ch of ch 3 from previous row. Turn. (16 stitches)
Rows 32 – 40: Repeat row 2. (16 stitches)
Row 41: Repeat row 11. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Rows 42 – 60: Repeat row 12. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Row 61: Repeat row 31. (16 stitches)
Rows 62 – 70: Repeat row 2. (16 stitches)
Row 71: Repeat row 11. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Rows 72 – 90: Repeat row 12. (8 ch 1 spaces and 9 hdc)
Row 91: Repeat row 31. (16 stitches)
Rows 92 – 100: Repeat row 2. (16 stitches)
Fold scarf in half and slip stitch ends together. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Finished size is approximately 6 inches by 60 inches. I used approximately 7 to 7.5 ounces of yarn for my scarf.
I made my scarf long enough to double it, but you can easily adjust the length of this scarf. If you want it to be a single cowl, you can stop around row 60. Need it to be longer? Just continue with the pattern until it’s the length you want.
(Please link back to my pattern if you make this scarf. I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t copy or rewrite my pattern onto another page. Thank you!)

I hope you enjoy this pattern!
About how many yards did you use for this? I love the pattern and have some wool that I bought from a spinner, but I’m not sure if I have enough. Thanks!
Hi Donna, Thanks! I used maybe around 400 yards, but that was crocheting with 2 strands of worsted weight (4) together to make it chunky. If your yarn is already chunky you won’t need as much. I hope this helps! Would love to see your scarf when you are finished!
This really turned out super cute. I love that you created your own pattern here. Always lacked the confidence for doing the same 🙂
Thanks! I actually changed it from what I started when you were here, but I love the way it turned out. I’m trying to branch out a little more. 😊

Just started working on my scarf, and I have question about the beginning –
If you chain into the 3rd stitch from hook, doesn’t it add up to 16 stitches? Feels like I’m missing something 🙈
Hi Shira, yes you will have 16 stitches in the first row. You will half double crochet into the 3rd chain from the hook and then each stitch across. The 2 chains you skip in the beginning count as a stitch. So 15 hdc plus the skipped chains as a stitch will give you 16 stitches. Hope this helps! 😊
