Pingback: 26 Cozy DIY Infinity Scarves With Free Patterns and Instructions - DIY & Crafts
I am pretty inexperienced in crochet but picked up this pattern easily. I am only a few rows in and notice my starter edge is straight but the other end has the zig zag look. I am wondering if you crocheted a straight edge at end to join the two or does joining them pull the straight edge in to the zig zag shape?
Hi! Your scarf will be straight once you join it.
I created a straight edge by adding one last row to fill in the zig-zag. At the end of the previous row I did ch 4 before turning. Last row: *DC, hdc (half double crochet), sc, sl st in ch 3 sp, tc (treble crochet)*, repeat * across ending with sl st in last ch 3 sp. I then joined the two straight edges with slip stitches.
I have been looking for this pattern for years. My mother In law made me a scarf years ago that I would like to make for my girls. I still have my scarf. She even put my initials on it. Thanks so much!!
I love it! Can’t wait to make it, thank you for sharing
Can’t wait to try it! I’ve been looking for a pattern to make a Christmas gift for my sister in law….thank you for sharing
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your pattern! I have now made a couple scarves with this pattern and the pattern is so quick and easy!
You should make a matching hat and fingerless gloves pattern to match! Thanks again!
am I doing something wrong how does 44 rows make it long enough?
Could be the yarn you are using. I am 20 rows in and using Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable….a thinner worsted weight…and there is NO WAY it will be a scarf by 44 rows LOL! I measured another infinity scarf that I have and am going to continue to about 45-50″ before joining
As Shannon stated, it could be the yarn. I suggest you continue rows until it is your desired length.
I am new to crocheting, but I am learning to read patterns. Can you tell me how to connect the two ends. The zig zag and the straight. I love this patterns design, want to make more.
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern,I needed something I could make fast for a whose visiting.
Cool scarf, can’t wait to make one. Thanks for sharing the instructions.
Loved this scarf! It worked up pretty quickly and you wrote the pattern in a very easily understood way. Although, mine, like some others who have posted, came out a bit on the short end, so I essentially turned it into a cowl. It was still very cute! I am now on the search for a hat pattern to match it. =) I did want to ask…Specifically what kind of yarn did you use? I used Red Heart Soft. It’s a medium (4) yarn. I’m wondering if that didn’t have an effect on the length. Either way, thank you very much for sharing!
Hello, needle art newbie here. Having a little trouble.
Am I right in thinking that at the end of the second row, one would end up with a total of 6ch before turning?
If that’s so, at the end of the third row, there would be a bigger ch space at the end, do I then also do the sc in this ch space instead of in that last stitch?
Thank you very much
This pattern is wonderful for Homespun or any bulky yarn. You could even hold terri stands together.
Loved the pattern. Thank you so much. Made for our pastors wife. I used a cream colored yarn with a gold metallic thread in the yarn.. Absolutely stunning!
I’m going to start on this tonight. Very pretty and interesting stitch. You must not be too far south. 1 degree? Ewww.
Hi, Linda! Good luck with your scarf. I actually wrote this post when I was living in the Midwest- much colder there than where I am now!
Hi – Is there a pattern for knitters?
Sorry, I do not have a pattern for knitters. I do not know how to knit.
I have been making this scarf on and off for the last few days. I am using vanna whites medium weight yarn, and I am using the size hook you listed. I did add 2 rows on the side (add 8 stitches). I have gone through 2 skeins of yarn, and my scarf is nowhere near long enough to even wear as a normal (not circular) scarf. I have considered using a larger needle, but I am so far in that I don’t want to start over. What am I doing wrong?
44 rows definitely does not make a 56 inch cowl. And joining the straight edge to the “zig zag” edge as mentioned above is not easy without more definitive instructions.
Would this pattern work for stripes?
Well hmm. Not sure if I’m working these instructions correctly. Does the scarf end up two sided? I have this “pocket” thing going as I sc to the space in previous row making it super bulky.
Disregard previous! I was going to row below for sc instead of previous. DUH!
Very nice pattern. Before joining the two ends together, don’t I need to turn over one end, in order to make the infinity loop?
What yarn did you use for the pattern?
I am not sure what kind of yarn this is because it was just some scrap yarn. It felt like a RedHeart Super Saver weight though.
Thank you for sharing this pattern! I made one for my dearest auntie who is suffering from lung cancer. It is beautiful and she likes it very much!

Crochet newbie here. If I want to make it wider, what is the multiple formula?
Oh gosh- disregard! Saw your note at the bottom to increase chains by 4 sorry about that!
I used Bernat medium yarn and a J hook…….almost 2 skeins and I finally hit the target length. Didn’t widen it either! At 60 rows I was only at 44 inches and my stitches are pretty loose!
I did start with a row of 21 foundation single crochets. Just go straight to row 2 if you do this! Does make joining easier.
Fun and quick stitch……and looks good!
