Cozy Infinity Scarf

by | Accessories, Crochet, My Favorites

I couldn’t quite figure out the the benefits of an infinity scarf over a normal scarf when I was shopping the other day, but I was totally convinced of its awesomeness after seeing this pattern at On the Wings of a Dove.  It is the perfect quick and easy Christmas present, so if you are a friend of mine, and a girl, you might be getting one!

simple infinity scarf, perfect for winter!

The pattern requires 2 skeins of Wool Ease Thick and Quick, but you can also use any bulky yarn.  I used some yarn I had bought years ago for a quilt that I never got around to, and then bought some more at Michael’s on Black Friday.

Of course, being me, I forgot my wallet on the busiest shopping day of the year, so I had to fight the traffic, the crowds, and stand in line twice (TWICE!) to buy my yarn.

Cozy Infinity Scarf Pattern

The pattern is simple and flexible.  Just chain as many as you will need to create the circumference that you want.  Without twisting the chain, slip stitch into the first chain to connect the ends and create a round.  Ch. 2 and then work 1 dc into each stitch around.  Join each round with a slip stitch to the first stitch.  Make as many rounds as you want for the desired thickness.  Fasten off and weave in ends.  That’s it!

I’ve made ones of different lengths (chaining between 60 and 100) and different thicknesses (6 or 8 rows) depending on how much yarn I have available.  Make it small and tight and you have a cowl!

Make this easy infinity scarf in one evening!

    Okay ChiWei this is the one I was referring to, today at lunch time. But then again I don’t know how to crotchet either so teaching me this will take more than you just posting the step by step. Luv the blog!

  2. Shug in Boots

    I just learned to knit (VERY basic knitting – garter stitch only) … I’m working on what I hope will look like a cowl when I’m done. I’m using Wool Ease Quick and Thick too … fingers crossed! Yours turned out great! 😀

    Hey, Thanks for the mention!

    I tried to click the link for the pattern but Chrome blocked it, told me not to click it as it (brooke and dove) contained malware and I would get a virus 🙁

  5. Chiwei @ One Dog Woof

    I got the same error. I’ve contacted Brooke and maybe I’ll be able to post her pattern is she is willing.

    Highly descriptive blog, I enjoyed that a lot. Will there be a
    part 2?

  9. kristin

    Hey! I was wondering if you know how many you exactly chained at the beginning because i love the circumference of this!

  10. Barb

    Am wondering what size needles you used for this scarf

  11. ChiWei

    Barb, I think I used P, although the sizes are so similar that it will also depend on your tension when you make it.

  12. ChiWei

    I don’t remember off the top of my head, but I’ve included a link in the post to the pattern and directions that I used, and she lists the exact number of chains.
