Infinity scarf

Easy Crochet Infinity Scarf

Today it’s 28 degrees Celsius in Victoria, BC (it’s typically about 18-20 degrees in September here) – not the sort of day to be thinking about a cozy cowl but let’s be honest, fall is right around the corner.

This past week I started a new crochet infinity scarf project.  I made the pattern for this crochet scarf based on a baby blanket I made last year that I absolutely loved.  Crochet scarf patterns are so easy and this one has a really nice rhythm to it once things get moving along.

If you want to learn how to crochet a scarf, this a great beginner project. It’s easy to learn and fun to make. It’s almost as easy as learning how to wear an infinity scarf. They’re such great pieces because you can throw them on and they go with everything.

This crochet infinity scarf uses bulky yarn. And you can make it as long as you can single crochet and double crochet. A crochet cowl is perfect for fall and winter because they’re warm and easy to cuddle up in. And because this infinity scarf crochet pattern calls for 100% acrylic yarn, it’s super soft too.

I love how simplistic this crochet cowl pattern is and I know you will too. Crochet cowls make great gifts and this one works up so fast you can make them in bulk.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern


  • 1.5 Skeins of Yarn (155 yards) – Bulky – I used Loops & Threads – Country Loom – Ocean Tide
  • Crochet Hook – US K10.5/6.50mm
  • Embroidery needle
  • Scissors

Crochet Stitches Used in this Pattern:

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet (U.S.)


  1. Counting in 3’s, ch as many stitches as it takes to make a chain 60″ long (this pattern calls for original chain to be any multiple of 3 so just count “1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3…” as you make the chain and make sure that your last chain lands on chain number 3).  Check that the chain hasn’t twisted and join to the first stitch with a sl st so that it now forms a ring.
  2. Round 2: dc in every chain until you’ve completed the round and join to the first dc with a sl st.
  3. Round 3: ch 3 and then sc between the 3rd and 4th dc, ch 3 and then sc in between the 6th and 7th dc.  You want to keep repeating this pattern every 3 double crochets until you’ve completed the round. Join with a sl st.
  4. Round 4: dc 3 into the chain you made in the previous round and then dc 3 into the next chain and continue in this manner until you’ve completed the round.  Join with a sl st.
  5. Repeat the pattern from Round 3 & 4 until the scarf is the desired width.
  6. Bind off and weave in the ends.

    I’ve sewn infinity scarves before but never tried crocheting one. I think this would be a perfect project to occupy my long communite to work in the morning. Thank you for the instructions and I absolutely love the colour you chose!

      Sorry Diane, I gave this scarf away as a gift so I don’t even have it to measure. I have another infinity scarf that I wrap around twice and I like it’s width and its about 32″ wide if that helps.

    I have made several baby blankets using this pattern! Like you, I love it. It’s my favorite go to. You’re instructions are good. Thank you.
    FYI to any and all -you can use any size or type of yarn with this pattern. You can mix them up for a more “glam” scarf. Just adjust your needle size accordingly and have fun!

    I dont know what I have done wrong but my crochet infinity scarf does not lie flat like yours it is spiraling. any advice?

    • Jamey

      Hi Lucy,

      It’s really hard to have any idea what is wrong without seeing what you did. The only thing I can think of is that you crocheted your very first row of chains stitches really tight. Sorry, I can’t say beyond that. The video should help with the beginning as it’s exactly the same, just done row by row. Sorry I’m not able to help more.

    Thanks so much for this pattern. My granddaughter asked me for an infinity scarf for Christmas. I did not know what an infinity scarf was until she explained it to me. I went looking for a pattern. Yours is easy and beautiful. Thank you.

    Love this scarf and pattern. Started tonight and finished my 1st skein. Struggling with trying to figure out appropriate with. Normal scarves are about 6 inches I would say. Anyone else have an opinion? Thanks for pattern Jamey!!!

    I have a question about row 2, it doesn’t state in the instructions, but should you ch 3 after you join your first round? I just started the second row and it looks a little funny at the transition of the slip stitch to DC. I don’t want to keep going if I’m missing a step (the perfectionista in me won’t allow it! lol) and I really want to use this stitch for a scarf for my boyfriend. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love the pattern! However, I live in Florida so I don’t need anything TOO, too warm. Is there any way to do this same pattern with a lighter yarn (worsted perhaps)? If so, which needle size would you recommend?


    • Jamey
      November 27, 2013 at 7:36 AM (7 years ago)

      I’m sure you could do that. I usually just kind of make these patterns up as I go… that’s what I did with this pattern. Just give it a try and see what happens. I would go down to a 4.0 or 4.5mm hook for that weight of yarn. Let me know how it turns out.

    I’m with Vicki–I don’t have much experience either. My talent is limited as well, but I think I may be able to do this. Going to give it a try

    I am looking to make a child’s infinity scarf. This pattern looks easy enough for my rusty crochet skills. Can it be adjusted for a child? If so, how? Shorten the length of the foundation chain? maybe to 30-36 inches? Help! I cant find single children’s pattern.

    Is this scarf looped around twice? It looks like it is in the first photo but on the hanger it looks like it isn’t. I want to make one that isn’t too tight when looped a second time so was wondering if I need to adjust my length accordingly.

    Thanks for posting the pattern!

    This is a pretty eternity scarf! If you would like to turn it into an infinity scarf, then do a row of doubles before connecting, then continue on with the DC’s on the other side of the chain. Start the next row when you get back to where you started from. You will be working both sides of the scarf at the same time in one continuous row.

    Love the scarf. We’re in the depths of winter here (Victoria, Australia), and I can always use one more scarf, especially one as pretty as this. I’m going to try it with 8-ply yarn and 4.5mm hook. I think your ‘worsted’ is somewhere between 8-ply and 12-ply.

    Just wanted to let you know that this is a great pattern for gifts or charity scarves. I put the pattern link on Ravelry, with credit and copyright of the image to you. Just wanted to give you the heads up!

    While I am loving the process of making this scarf, round 4 is not clear to me. Could you explain it a bit more in detail? Are we supposed to add 3 dc into each single stitch all the way around? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Have you ever done a key hole scarf using a bulky or super bulky wool. If so would love to get the pattern off you. It is impossible to find one.

    So I’m definitely a beginner, and I am quite stuck on round 4. I understand the double crochet in the previous, however I’m not so sure on the next chain part. Do you have any tips or any videos I can check out that would be very helpful.

    Hello. I just made this infinity scarf in exactly the same yarn, by coincidence it is something I had in my stash. I wanted to let you know that I adapted the pattern to a slouchy hat also. Let me know if you would like me to email you pictures and the pattern adaptation. Thanks!

    I am pretty newbie at this…and I am only 4’6″ tall. How do you suggest I scale this pattern? 60″ might overwhelm me!

    Thanks. Voni

    When completing round 3, where do you join with the slip stitch

    Where do you join with slip stitch when finishing the 3rd round?

    Hi Jamey. Quick question. In round 2 , are you supposed to DC in the chain that you slip stitched into ( the chain that joins it into a ring) ? I think this will turn out really nice so thanks so much for the pattern!

  41. Sharon
    November 2, 2018 at 6:41 PM (2 years ago)

    Thanks so much for this pattern. One question with round 2 – after you slip stitch to first stitch to form a chain; do you DC in the same stitch as the one that the slip stitch is in or do you skip that one and DC in the next one? Thanks so much!

  42. Sarah Chapin
    December 31, 2018 at 6:49 AM (2 years ago)

    Hi Jamey, I was wondering if before starting the 2nd and 4th rounds, am I supposed to chain 3 for height? I feel like I would be missing something without doing that!
    Thank you so much!

  43. Sarah Chapin
    December 31, 2018 at 6:54 AM (2 years ago)

    Already sent one but indicated it being on wron wrong website. My question was do I need to chain 3 for height at beginning of round 2 and 4? Thank you!
