This past weekend was pretty warm here, and by warm, I mean, it's still January, and the temperature is above freezing. The snow is melting, and the magnolia next door is thinking about budding. But it's still winter, and we can get hit by frigid temps and snowy weather any day, at least until April. So even though I'm already looking forward to Easter and spring and sunshine, there is still a need to stay warm.
Here's a smaller sized infinity scarf (or cowl) that's light yet cozy and will keep you warm and brighten your days until spring! This was worked using a classic V-stitch, crocheted in the round. For added bulk, use 2 strands of yarn held together.
If you'd like to sell items from this pattern or share it with your friends, I just ask that you give credit back to One Dog Woof. Please do not repost or re-distribute the pattern in its entirety. Thanks!
Update: I made some minor corrections after some questions came up. There's a round of sc before the V-stitches start. Then the number of V-stitch rounds is optional. I used 6, but you can work up as many or as little as you want.

M size (9.0 mm) crochet hook

Abbreviations, in US terms:

Foundation: Ch 99 with 2 strands of yarn held together. Join with a sl st in the back ridge of first chain. This means you will twist the chain slightly in order to work into the back ridge or hump of the chain.
Round 1: Ch 1. Work 1 sc into each st around. Join to ch-1 with a sl st.
Round 2: Ch 3. Work 1 dc into same st as join. *Skip 2 st. Work (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st. This is one V-stitch made. Repeat from * around. Skip 2 st. Join with a sl st into 2nd chain of round. - 99 sts
At this point, count your stitches and make sure you still have the same number you started with.
Round 3: Ch 3. Work 1 dc into next ch-1 sp. *Skip 2 st. Work (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch-1 sp. Repeat from * around. Skip 1 st, then join with a sl st into 2nd chain of round. - 99 sts

Stay warm, my friends!
