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.
