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 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. 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 – 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!

      Yes, you are welcome to sell the finished scarves, just not the pattern. I’m so glad that you found the pattern easy to follow. Thanks for sharing your photo – the scarf turned out beautifully.

      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!

      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.

    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?

      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.

    These instructions seem clear enough for even me! I don’t have much experience with crochet, but I’m going to give this a try.

    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

    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!
