Infinity Scarf Pattern

While my husband and I were in Austin. I saw this beautiful lil' gem at Urban Outfitters.



Then I start thinking (like many of us do), Hey I can make that! But this time, I actually did!

So here it is my first crochet pattern for the uber simple infinity scarf. I made mine in a little over an hour. It's great if you are just starting out working in rounds or if you want to go ahead and give rounds a try.



Yarn: 1 skein of Lion Bran Woolease Thick & Quick (Shown in Spice)

Hook Size: N
Other Materials: Yarn Needle to weave ends
                          Stitch Marker

Row 1: Chain 100, join with slip stitch. Try super hard not to twist your chain.
Row 2: Ch1, sc 100.
Row 3-10: Repeat Row 2. Fasten off and weave in you ends.

You'll have just a bit of yarn leftover and a big chunky infinity scarf.

But Brooke, What if I want a super extra chunky infinite scarf?

I'm glad you asked...



This gem is 2 skeins of Thick & Quick in Lemongrass

Row 1: Chain 150, join with slip stitch. Try super hard not to twist your chain.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc 150
Row 3-12: Repeat Row 2. Fasten off and weave in you ends.

See easier than pie, at least for me...baking is not my forte!
Questions, concerns, comments...
This is my first pattern so if I need to make correction please let me know.

And I am totally giving myself high fives for using my new remote trigger...no self timer here!

Hi Brooke...don't know if you remember me, but you took my Wedding photos almost two years ago! Every now and then I check your blog out, and I just had to comment on this scarf...it is AMAZING! I just saw this scarf in Georgetown at UO this past weekend and as much as I loved it I really didn't want to pay the $50 for it! I have never knitted before but I may have to learn...it would def. be worth it! Job well done!!

Brooke Ann Dove said...

Thanks! Of course I remember you,thanks for checking in on me that's so sweet.
Crocheting is my new favorite hobby, my mom taught me the basics and the rest I looked up on youtube. You should give it a try!

Mrs. Miller said...

maybe i can figure out crocheting enough to do this?! i want to make one so bad! i love those colors by the way!

Louise said...

Brooke, let's just cut to the chase. Just send me an infinity scarf to match my adorable cowl you made! I can't get enough of your stuff-- you are so talented!

CAPow! said...

I love love love the big green chunky one....AND I've been wanting a big chunky infinity scarf for the winter...I small project!

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

Nice work! I LOVE the super chunky version. I might have to try this before it gets colder.

Also, I'm jealous of your remote shutter! That's definitely going on my Christmas list - I'm so sick of the self timer.

Mrs. Miller said...

im almost done unless i go grab another skein of this yarn and do the chunky. i had to take yesterday off b/c my fingers were super sore. does that happen to you? or is it b/c i'm a lefty and goofy? i'm just excited i can crochet something. is this similar to that cool cowl thing you made? i want one of those! lol miss you!

Minnie said...

HELP! Why can't I NOT twist my yarn?? I've been crocheting 30 years, and have always disliked "rounds" and now I know why. I have made several Infinity Scarves, but never in the round, and seems like it would go so much faster. Please give me some non-twisting tips.

Thanks!!!
Kathy

Ali B. said...

thank you so much for this pattern! This was my first crochet project and I finished it in two days! It looks great! I combined the skinny and chunky scarf patterns to make a happy medium. Thanks!

jammilk said...

So glad my 17 year old found your page. She was interested in making scarves for gifts this year. Your pattern sealed the deal. I have wanted her to learn to crochet and knit forever,,,,she now is interested.

Ms. Florida said...

I just started crocheting and I'm confused by the connecting with the slip stitch part. Can anyone explain exactly what that means?

Anonymous said...

Ms. Florida..after reaching your 100th chain, stick you hook in the loop of the first chain and pull through a loop. This is a slip stitch and you have joined your chain to create a loop.

summerific said...

Did you use a N size hook for the chunky one too?

Leslie Wells said...

Does anyone have a knit version of this scarf

Stacie said...

LOVE THIS...thank you!

gail said...

Thank you so much for the pattern for the infinity scarf! My adult daughter wanted one and I got on the site that sells them..uh oh..they are really expensive! "I can make that" is what I said to myself! And lo and behold there was your pattern. I sincerely appreciate it Brooke!

Sophie Kmeco said...

This is so pretty1 I am just starting out with crocheting, and I'm sort of confused about step 2. What does Ch1, sc 100 mean?

thanks!

Sophie, chain one, single crochet 100.

Thanks so much for sharing this! I lowered the first row to 75 and made a toddler infinity scarf for my Grandbaby this morning. I thought it might have more of a chance of staying on and less chance of getting lost on a two year old than the regular kind of scarf. You can see the pic on Pinterest.com. Thanks again!

MariaPaula said...

So, I was searching the Internet for an EASY infinity scarf pattern & yours showed up. Let me tell you, I just started crocheting two weekends ago & it's so much easier than knitting!! I finished crocheting this scarf in about three hours. Thanks for sharing <3!!

Happy New Year!

Shay said...

Hi Brook. I was wondering in the second pattern for the Super Think and chunky scarf if you use to strands of yarn together or because it was longer and a little wider you needed 2 skeins of yarn.

Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

I love the chunky scarf pattern! i tried to make it, but im new to crocheting and somehow messed it up. it doesnt wrap around even twice. whatd i do wrong? :l i chained 150..

Anonymous said...

My point of view partially coincided with yours. Thank you for trying. antidepressants Read a useful article about tramadol tramadol

Hi. I love your paternal, but had trouble not twisting the chain, so I used a treble stitch for a looser relevance the result was beautiful and quick. I made one scarf in an hour.
I'm so digging this crochet addiction I have acquired.

Anonymous said...

Ohh, I hate auto correct. That should have read, patern and weave. Lol.

Anonymous said...

Made this last night (two skeins) and I LOVE it! So easy, and so chic. I posted a pic to FB last night, and my friends are going nuts for it. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

beautiful!!! Love green scarf!!!
I was wondering is it possible to wear it both ways? For your head as well not only for neck. Will 150 chain will be enough?

Thank you!

Sharon said...

Ummm, I only got 7 rounds out of a skein?? Not including the ch100 round.

I have started crocheting this infinty scarf following your pattern. I know the basic stitches but am a beginner! I am on my 5th row and my edges are curling in and my scarf is looking more like a tube. What could I be doing wrong?

Reinier Gispen said...

hi! i really want to make this scarf, but i don't know how much yarn i need... you said you used 2 skeins of yarn, which kind did you use? wool, cotton, acryllic?
i really want to make it right haha
thanks in advance

Anonymous said...

I am in the process of making the first chunky infinity scarf. I don't know what I did wrong, but when I chained only 100, there's no way that I would have been able to wrap it twice around my neck and have it look right. What did you do different? I ended up starting over and made 150 chains to make it longer.

Thanks so much!

Yelena's Nest said...

What hook size did you use for the second scarf? I am currently using hook P (with double strand of medium 4 yarn.. caron simply soft to be exact) and have 15 rows, but it's nowhere near as wide as yours.

Yelena's Nest said...

How wide is the second scarf?

Anonymous said...

I don't know why, but I find things made in single crochet stitches end up much too stiff. I made one of these and it was so stiff I could barely put it on. Then again I used a chunky acrylic yarn (I find wool too itchy) so maybe that's the problem? Would it come out more relaxed if I used actual wool?

Anonymous said...

I just made this for a friend but mine wraps 3x which is fine but it is curling on the edges and just doesn't lay right..I'm fairly new to crochet is there something I can do to fix the curling?

Anonymous said...

Remember that the type of yarn used will be different in length when using number of stitches. I did a great chunky one and chained stitches to equal 60 inches by 7 inches. That went around twice beautifully.

One trick (if thru chain testing is driving you betty) is to inc ch by 1, turn and sc in each ch 'til you reach the end, then join the sc ends and work your rounds from there.

The scarf could be worked in a rectangle then joining the ends if you don't mind a seam.

Worked in a round, there is a distinct right-side wrong-side adding texture and detention.

Sorry... 1st ( ) should have read...
