Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

If you are searching for a good Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern, you’ll love this very easy free pattern with a video tutorial. It is made by alternating between single crochet and double crochet stitches, which creates a modern, textured scarf. It’s the same stitch that is used in my Simple Scarf Crochet Pattern and my Simple Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern.

You can use any size 3 yarn. I used Bernat Softee Baby, which is incredibly soft and cozy around your neck. Bernat Softee Baby is available in a wide range of colors and it is tested for over 300 harmful substances and proven to be safe for sensitive skin. It’s also machine washable and dryable for easy care!

Crochet Infinity Scarf

This crochet infinity scarf is made as a long piece and then attached at the end with slip stitches. The pattern creates a long piece that is approx. 60″ long, which is the average size of an infinity scarf and should fit just about anyone!

Crochet infinity scarves are very fashionable and this one is light enough to be worn indoors but also has enough density that it can also keep your neck warm outdoor in the winter.

This infinity scarf pattern works up really quickly and is great for mindless crocheting while binge watching. Or it’s a great crochet infinity scarf pattern for beginners as you only need to know how to chain, single crochet, double crochet and slip stitch to make this entire scarf.

Materials

Yarn: Approx. 362 yds / 331 m of any size 3 light/dk yarn. I used 1 skein* of Bernat Softee Baby in the color: “Soft Red.” This yarn is size 3 light, 100% acrylic, 5 oz / 140 g. 362 yds / 331 m. *Note: I used all of the 1 skein so if you want to be safe, get an extra skein. 

Crochet Hook: K/10.5 (6.50 mm) hook. You may want to go up one hook size for the starting chains. 

Other Materials: yarn needle, scissors and a measuring tape. 

Terminology

This pattern is easy. It is written for right-handed crochet using standard US terminology. If you’re more familiar with UK terms, here’s my US to UK Conversion Chart

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sts = stitches 
  • sl st = slip stitch 
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet 

How to Adjust the Size

The length (circumference) of the scarf is determined by the number of starting chains (169 starting chains creates a length of approx. 60”). To adjust the length, make less or more starting chains in multiples of 2 + 1. To adjust the width, make less or more rows.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern Instructions

If you crochet tightly you may want to go up a hook size for the starting chains (only) to help you work more easily into the back ridge loops on Row 1. 

Start: Ch 169. 

For Row 1 (only) work into the back ridge loops. 

Where to crochet in the chain

Row 1: In the 2nd chain from hook, sc. In the next chain, dc. *In the next chain, sc. In the next chain, dc.* Repeat from * to * across entire row (168 sts).

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. Sc into the 1st st (the top of the last dc you completed). Dc into the next stitch (the top of the sc from the previous row). *Sc into the next st. Dc into the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * across entire row (168 sts). 

After Row 2, the scarf should measure approx. 56” long but grows to 60” around Row 6.

Row 3 and on: Repeat Row 2 until the height of your work is 6.5” (approx. 20 rows) or your desired height. (You can end after any row – it doesn’t matter if it’s an even or odd number row). Do not fasten off. 

Attaching the Sides

Fold the scarf in half and line up your current side/end with the other side/end so they are even with each other. Insert your hook into the top stitch of the opposite end and slip stitch the two sides together. Continue working down and slip stitch into each lined up stitch all the way down.

Attaching sides

Or, you can use your yarn needle and sew the two sides together by weaving the yarn in and out. 

Once attached, fasten off and weave in loose ends.

And now you have a new crochet infinity scarf!
