The carefree crochet infinity scarf || free pattern

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I was lucky enough to spend the day with Michael and James and received a plethora of new goodies. I always love getting gifts but trying to figure out how to fit all my new gadgets into my tiny kitchen is never fun! James got a new set of toys and he has been in heaven:

Destroying toys is his favorite hobby. My sisters gifted me a new set of bamboo crochet hooks that I absolutely love! I have been using metal hooks since I started crocheting and never realized how heavy they were until I tried the bamboo hooks.

With a new set of hooks and a brand new charcoal winter coat (Thanks, Mom!) I knew I was going to have to whip up a new scarf. I knew I wanted an infinity scarf that was light and could be worn for warmth with my coat or just as an accessory. I also knew I wanted it to be gray and yellow (still my favorite color combo!). After a little interweb inspiration, I came up with this:

It’s light yet warm. And the pattern is so easy. You can whip it up in an hour with less than a skein of yarn!

“Carefree” Infinity Scarf

Hook: Gray- K hook; Yellow- I hook
Yarn: Any yarn is fine. For mine, I used Loops & Threads Impeccable in True Grey and Vanna’s Choice in Mustard. I used less than one skein of each.
Notes: You should use the K hook with the gray yarn and the I hook with the yellow yarn. Remember to crochet loosely so that your scarf is very lightweight. Turn after each round.

Stitches

DC: double crochet
sc: single crochet

Pattern

With gray, ch 200
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next st, ch 1, skip 1 st, *dc in next 3 sts, ch 1, skip 1 st, dc in next 3 sts*, repeat from * to end
Row 2: With yellow, *ch 2, 2 sc in ch 1 sp*, repeat from * until last st, ch 2, 2 sc in last dc
Row 3: With gray, ch 3, *3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 1*, repeat from * to last ch 2 sp, ending with 3 dc
Row 4: With yellow, *ch 2, 2 sc in ch 1 sp*, repeat from * until last st, ch 2, 2 sc in last dc
Row 5: With gray, ch 3, *3 dc in in ch 2 sp, ch 1*, repeat from * until last ch 2 sp, ending with 3 dc

Repeat rows 4 and 5, alternating as before until you reach row 11, ending with a gray row.

Do not fasten off. I find it best to weave in your ends at this point, then slip stitch the short ends together to make your infinity scarf. Weave in your last end and you’re done!

This will be my last post of 2013. This year has been such a great year for The Batter’s Box. I have learned so much about crocheting and have loved being able to create and share patterns with the crochet community. I also sold my first crochet items to people other than my family and friends which has been nerve wracking but also exciting. I am looking forward to what new adventures are in store for myself and for the blog!

Have a safe and happy new year! Here’s to 2014!

    Love it! Been looking for a fast, cute scarf to make! Starting on it today! Thanks for sharing it for free!

  2. Carol Kaye says:

    Is really good, making a start on this tonight trying some new milk-coloured yarn

  3. Carol Kaye says:

    Sorry….. multi coloured yarn.

  4. Pam Ailes says:

    First of all let me say, I love the scarf! I want to make one but I have a couple of questions about the pattern. On row 1, at the end, you chain 3 and skip one stitch so that leaves the last chain undone. Is that right? Also, the pattern does not say to turn the work at the end of each row nor does it say to join with the first chain to make a loop to work it that way. So I am not sure what to do. Can you help me?

    • Hilary Hilary says:

      Hi, Pam! You should end row 1 with 3 dc’s. Basically just 3 DC’s, skip 1 st all the way across, ending with 3 DCs in the last few stitches. You should also turn your work at the end of each row. I did not join the first row to make a loop. Instead I finished the scarf and slip stitched the two ends together to form a loop once it was complete. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. 🙂

  5. Pam Ailes says:

    Thank you so much for the clarification. I am going to work on it now! Can’t wait until it is finished.

  6. Sarah says:

    This is so cute, I have to try it. Did you cut your yarn at the end of each row or carry the colors up the end?

  7. Alesha says:

    I have a question for ya. Do you think it would work up the same if it was joined after the 200ch ? I know this sounds crazy but I do better when I work in a round instead of rows then stitching together 🙂 thanks!

  8. crochetdemon says:

    I just started this! I like the texture it gives with the different tensions. Seems like it’ll be nice and stretchy and fun when finished! Neon pink and orange were my chosen colors, by the way 🙂
