Winter has come early to Victoria, British Columbia where I live. Most years we’re lucky to not see any snow but this year, it arrived on the second day of November. Now, to be honest, it didn’t stick around for long but it was definitely a shock to the system.

As soon as I felt that cold Arctic air, I knew it was time to start working a new crochet scarf pattern. My original idea was to use a block stitch but as soon as I started working on the scarf, I knew it was a little bit too boring of a stitch for what I was after. After fooling around with a few ideas I came up with this much more interesting cross-over block stitch crochet pattern.

The cross-over block stitch has a lovely texture and look to it and could be used for crochet blankets, washcloths, bags, hats and more.

I’m really pleased how this infinity scarf pattern turned out and I’ve decided it’s going to make the perfect gift for a special someone this holiday season.

FINISHED SIZE:  9” x 26” (when seamed together)


Start by chaining 33 + 2.

ROW 1: Insert your hook into the 5th chain from the hook, dc in each chain until the end of the row. Turn.

ROW 2: Ch3, then in between the 3rd and 4th dc (the dc under the ch DOES NOT count as the 1st dc), do 1sc, ch2, *skip 3 dc and do 1sc, ch2 between the dc from the previous row * rep until the end of the row, ending with a sc in the last dc. Turn.

ROW 3: Ch3, 2dc into the ch space below, plus 1dc crossed-over to the sc at the bottom of the turning ch. *2dc into the next ch space, plus 1dc crossed back over (to the right) into the sc from the previous row*. Rep until the end of the row ending with an additional dc in the last ch space (no cross-over). Turn.

ROWS 4 – ONWARDS: Repeat rows 2-3 until your scarf reaches 52” in length.


Once the scarf is long enough, fold over so that the backside of the pattern is facing outwards. Seam the two ends of the scarf together. Turn the scarf the right side around.
