This Easy Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern is absolutely beautiful and is a simple pattern that can be made fast, in just one weekend, whether you’re a beginner or more advanced. You’ll be wearing it, showing it off to your friends, before you know it! You can crochet this scarf while you’re relaxing at home, watching tv, or just enjoying some quiet time for yourself.  

 

This scarf has a gorgeous pattern of stitches, is warm & soft, and just the right length to wrap around twice. What’s especially nice about infinity scarves is that they fit anyone, with just the right amount of coziness, and you never have to worry about them falling to the floor!

 

The pattern uses the Even Moss Stitch, which includes the chain stitch, slip stitch, and half-double crochet.

 

 

Materials

  • 370 yards of #4/worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo in Grey Heather)
  • J-10/6-mm hook
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

 

Finished size

Using #4/worsted weight yarn and a J-hook, this pattern will make a scarf that measures 60” x 7”, utilizing 370 yards of yarn over 28 rows.  

  • If you prefer to use a different-weight yarn and different hook, you may have to adjust the amount of yarn you’ll need, and will need to increase or decrease the number of chain stitches in your foundation row, for the same length scarf.  
  • If you prefer to make the scarf shorter, simply decrease the number of chain stitches in the beginning; for a longer scarf, increase the number of chains.  For a wider or narrower scarf, increase or decrease the amount of rows you crochet.

 

Notes

  • All instructions, abbreviations, and materials in this pattern are given in US terminology.
  • In this pattern, you will be crocheting slip stitches over top of the previous row’s slip stitch, and crocheting half-double crochet over top of the previous row’s half double crochet.  After the first few rows, you will be able to identify the half-double crochet stitches by a diagonal stitch in the previous row that is raised above the rest.
  • After the foundation row of chain stitches, turn, and perform first slip stitch into 2nd chain. This is the only time you will begin in the 2nd chain; for every row afterward, you will begin in the first chain.
  • Each row should end with a slip stitch, then chain one and turn.
