Happy Saturday Crocheters! I have a special surprise for you today ♥ Melanie Grobler from MandMCrochetDesigns has given me a beautiful pattern to share with you – for free – right here on the blog! Read on below to learn about Melanie and to access the Autumn Stars Infinity Scarf Pattern!
- I have not been crocheting for long, but the first time I picked up a hook, some yarn, and a pattern to make a beautiful blanket, I was, as they say, hooked.
- When my little girl told me that she felt snuggled in my love when lying under one of the blankets I crocheted for her, it occurred to me that she was right.
- When we make something for someone else, we spend lots of time thinking about that person, and we pour our love, passion, and creativity into the item.
- I love to play with patterns and colours and create something unique and beautiful for people I love, and I am sure you do too.
- My patterns are easy to read, with loads of photo tutorials to help even the most inexperienced crafter.

Melanie’s Recommended Alternative Yarns
Tension, Gauge and Finished Size
- 10 cm down = 12 double crochet rows – 10 cm across = 18 double crochet stitches.
- If you are using your own yarn, you DO NOT need to match my tension and gauge; however, you need to keep your tension the same throughout the project.
- My scarf is approximately 160 cm (63 inches) in diameter and approximately 20 cm (8) in width.
Notes and Tips
- My pattern uses US terminology.
- Crochet skill level – easy.
- I have also included helpful hints along the way, which are in “italics”.
- I use standing stitches when I work; if you are not comfortable with making one, then you can replace it with a slip knot and the required number of chains (i.e. chain 3 for dc, chain 2 for hdc).
- *.* / **.** indicates a repeat of a combination of stitches by the given number of times.
- Stars are worked together as you go, and the scarf is joined at the end into an infinity scarf.

Using colour (B) yarn make a magic circle (or chain 4 and slip stitch into 1st chain to make a ring).
Ch 1 (does not count as st), *3dc cl st (close with a ch), ch 1, into mc*, rep *.* 5 more times, ss into the closing ch of 1st st (6 x 3dc cl st).
Helpful hint: using colour (A) yarn join in any chain space from previous round with a slip stitch or replace the chain 2 with a standing double crochet. I make a chain two for the 1st double crochet when I crochet as I think it looks neater than the “normal” way of making 3 chains to replace a double crochet – but it is up to you and will not make a difference to the design.
[Ch 2 (counts as 1st dc), dc, ch 2, dc 2], *dc 2, ch 2, dc 2*, rep *.* 4 more times, ss into 1st st (24 dc, 6 x ch 2).
Helpful hint: when you skip stitches in this round make sure you do not miss counting the 1st double crochet from the previous round which is sometimes hidden by the stitches just made in this round.
Ss into ch sp, [Ch 2 (counts as 1st dc), dc 3, ch 2, dc 3] into same ch sp, *sk 2 sts, ss into next st, sk next st, [dc 3, ch 2, dc 3] into same sp*, rep *.* 4 more times, sk next 2 sts, ss into next st, ss into 1st dc, cut yarn and weave in ends (36 dc, 6 x ch 2, 6 x ss).
When you have completed the first star the rest are joined as you go.
Follow the instructions for rounds 1 and 2 and when you do round 3 there is a slight change when making the ch 2 (between dc’s).
After finishing the 3rd dc, ch 1, then pick up a finished star from your scarf and ss into any ch 2 sp, ch 1, then continue making the next 3 dc’s as normal. The photos should help, or you can google ways to join stars as you go. Depending on where the star is placed will depend on how many joins you need to make – some on just two sides, and some on more. Refer to the diagram for help on where to join the stars.
Helpful hint: when making the slip stitch into the chain space make it a bit loose so that it does not pull and it will be less visible.
For my crochet infinity scarf I made 3 x 25 rows of stars, but you can make it as long and/or as wide as you like.

Adding Tassels to the Autumn Stars Infinity Scarf
I added tassels to the “bottom” of my infinity scarf, which is optional. I used the colour from the middle and matched it up with the tassel, but you can do anything you like (go wild! 😊), I cut 4 strands approximately 20 cm (8 inches) in length, folded in half and threaded through the open end of a star. I then cut them all the same length. You can make pompoms, or long tassels or leave the tassels out.
