I just finished mine! Looks totally adorable, but I ran out of yarn 3/4 of the way through row 8 booo! I just make it 7 rows but it still looks super cute :o) Thanks so much for the pattern.

Found this/your blog on pinterest! Now that the weather has cooled down, I'm itching to crochet! (I'm a beginner of sorts). I'm halfway through making this in a lovely earthy green. Thank you thank you!!! :) Bring on more crochet stuff. :) carey <3

New to crochet.... How do you join the second skern of yarn?

ChunkyFunk and the Insatiable Hook said...

Sarah- to end a skein and start a new one mid-project: Get the new skein ready, and as you're about the do the final pull-through on the last stitch of the old skein (making sure you have at least 2" of yarn left on the old skein, as you will be stitching OVER this in order to secure both the old and the new skeins)- Drop the old skein (but hold onto the tail with 2 spare fingers, to maintain the proper tension), loop the new skein onto your hook, then finish the stitch by pulling that new loop through. Continue working your stitches over the tails, and this will secure both skeins, and will also automatically weave them both in- invisibly! Good luck-

I love this scarf but what am I doing wrong?? the chain of 100 gets joined together making a circle. how is the scarf in your picture where you are bending over,
so long?? I just ripped an entire scarf out because it was not long enough to wrap around twice and to just have it once,it just is neither here nor there. i must be doing something very wrong!

Angela said...

I am new to crochet I am teaching myself and I am having a really hard time with this! I am wanting to make these scarfs for Christmas gifts. I dont understand the how to do the double stitch. Also, how do I join the chain together? I know there are silly questions but help PLEASE!!! :)

chiwei said...

Thank you for a wonderful easy pattern! It's so much more satisfying than working for months on a big quilt. Every female on my list is getting one this year!

I just started a blog and wrote about the pattern, and I'm also a new follower!

Hello, I am going to try and make this for my granddaughter for Christmas and I was wondering when you connect the chain together at the end do you turn it over so that the scarf has a turn in it. I seen that on a utube here . Hope this will go fast and easy.
Thank you for posting, God Bless.
Merry Christmas

Hi Linda, I see you wrote on here in Nov. Could you please tell me if you figured out how many stitches you needed to do to get the long scarf? I am also confused. Thanks,Diana

I just did one and was so excited but it turned out way too short and I chained 175 to start. I have decided that I must be chaining and stitching too tight. So I am going to try again and see how that goes.

ladydi said...

Please keep me posted on how it comes out for you. I am going to be using the N or P crochet hook and bulky yarn so hoping it comes out ok. I also stitch tight but will try to go looser. I read somewhere where it should measure 60 inches. Thanks for responding. Diana

What does it mean to "dc in each sc"? I know what dc and sc stand for but don't know what in each means in this context

Thanks! Allison

Kristie said...

yay! Just picked up some bulky yarn in a really pretty teal and I was looking for something to do with it when i found this! can't wait to make it... really pretty and easy!

Allie Dillinger said...

I too chained 100 and it looked waaay to short, so I made it 150. But once you start actually crocheting, it grows - a lot! Mine is now sooo long that I can easily wrap it 3 times. It hangs past my knees when I leave it down. I still love it! But all that to say, even if 100 looks too short, you might want to try it out.

Allie. You should go by inches instead of stitches because each different yarn will have a different size depending on the type. I did a chunky scarf and chained to approx 54 inches. It went around twice beautifully.

My daughter has wanted me to make her one for some time now & I thought this one was exactly what she had in mind! She will be getting it for Christmas this year. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern=)

I love the look of infinity scarves and when I needed to come up with a quick present this year for a friend, I managed to stumble upon this pattern. I was hesitant because I'm rusty with my hook and wasn't sure how to combine two skeins of yarn for a project. I decided to give it a try yesterday and I am now a proud owner of two beautiful infinity scarves. The first was some what of a test run since I wasn't 100% on slip stitching together a row but they still are both gorgeous and hang so well.

I found that I needed three skeins of yarn. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA instead of the Wool-ease. I found that working with the P hook was so simple and it worked up so easily. Thank you so much for providing this pattern!! :)

Shannon said...

OMG, this scarf is so super cute! I've been telling myself to pick up my crochet needle again and this might be the thing that does it!

Morgan A. said...

Hmmm...Ladies, quick question. So in order to make this are you holding both skeins of yarn together while you chain for an extra thick look? OR just using one skein then connecting the second when that one runs out?

Anonymous said...

I have made 10 of these in 3 weeks, all Christmas gifts. I used the Lion Brand Hometown USA for most. Can't wait to get back to the store and pick out something to make for myself! Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm looking for a beret pattern that can be made out of the same chunky yarn. My daughter wants one to match her infinity scarf. Any suggestions/inspiration?

Annie A said...

Can't find P hook. If I use K hook & redhead medium weight yarn (4) yarn how many stiches (inches) should I cast on?

Annie A said...

Found P hook finally. I'm using this to teach my niece Sophia. She is doing great and can't wait to see her infinity scarf completed. Thanks for pattern.
