The Full of Woe Infinity Scarf Pattern is my December Scarf of the Month CAL Pattern. This beginner crochet infinity scarf is a fun accessory to make and wear this year.
The inspiration for this infinity scarf is the crocheted snood given to Wednesday by Enid on the Netflix series Wednesday. My pre-teen and teen and I watched it together and we thoroughly enjoyed it and immediately my daughter wanted a Wednesday’s Snood of her own! If you have a chance to stream Wednesday, we definitely recommend it. We love Netflix and we can’t wait to see the next season.
My Full of Woe Infinity Scarf uses Medium Weight / Aran Weight Yarn . My version of Wednesday’s Snood Scarf is lighter weight than the one she receives in the movie but it is exactly what my daughter wanted me to make for her to wear.
My friend Ashley (The Loopy Lamb) shared a pattern just over a week ago using Bulky Weight Yarn for Enid’s Snood so if you would like to make Wednesday’s Snood using Bulky Weight yarn I recommend popping over to her post to pick up a copy.
To make my Full of Woe Infinity Scarf you will need Medium Weight Yarn  and a 7 mm (L) crochet hook. I used a single skein of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for my project.
Using a slightly larger hook size with the yarn gives this finished infinity snood scarf a slightly stretchy fabric and bonus! it works up very quickly!

This pattern is beginner-friendly and uses one skein of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn to complete. If you want the fleck of white in the tassels, you will need 11 strands of white yarn (each approximately 6 inches in length).
My daughter and I watched Wednesday (on Netflix) and we fell in love with the show, the character and then Enid’s Snood (ummm….infinity scarf? I must be old because I still envision a snood as that hair holding bag that is worn on the back of the head from the 1800s, anyways….) so I promised her I’d crochet her one to wear if she promised to call it an infinity scarf.
My version of Wednesday’s Snood uses a single strand of Medium/Aran Weight Yarn and a 7 mm hook. It works up very quickly and is perfect for wearing in Enid’s ‘it’s a snood silly’ style wrapped around the head, or as a loop around the neck, or wrapped twice around the neck.
I hope you enjoy making this in your favorite colors 🙂 or in Wednesday’s Style of black – like my daughter prefers.

- Colors: 1 skein Black (Shade: E300)
- Crochet Hook: 7 mm (L) Furls Streamline Wood (ebony) (affiliate link)
- Finished Project: Scarf: 6.54 oz (185 g) and 340 yds (311 m)
- Scissors, Tapestry Needle (yarn needle), Stitch Marker (optional)
Infinity Scarf width approximately 8.5 inches X 73 inches length.
Approximately 9 dc per 4 inches and 6 rows in dc per 4 inches.
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- Fdc – foundation double crochet
- g- grams
- m – meters
- oz – ounces
- R – row
- Rnd – round
- rem – remaining
- sk – skip
- st/sts – stitch/stitches
- yds – yards
- * to **– Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.
-  – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
- () – important notes AND sets of stitches to be worked within one stitch, or space
- Stitch multiple for foundation chain: 1
- To increase the length of your infinity scarf, chain more stitches.
- The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc. This means we do not place an additional stitch into the first stitch (since the ch 3 start counts as the first st of the round).
- I used a foundation double crochet row to start but you can substitute a foundation chain row instead. See Alternate Row 1 below.
- If you use a Foundation Chain Row: When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
- To change the scarf width, work more rounds.
- I use an invisible join to finish my projects worked in rounds. You may substitute a slip stitch to join if you prefer.

Full of Woe Infinity Scarf
After Row 1, this project is crocheted lengthwise in joined rounds.
Using your 7 mm (L) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):
R1: Make 164 Fdc. Sl st to the first Fdc to join. [164 Fdc]
Alternate R1: Ch 166, sk the first 3 chs (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each rem ch across. Sl st to the top of the first sk ch to join. [164 dc]
Rnd 2-Rnd 13: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc). 1 dc in each st around. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. [164 dc]
Proceed to finishing instructions.
- Finish off using an invisible join..
- Weave in ends.
You will be adding a tassel every 15 stitches all the way around the bottom of the infinity scarf (R1 edge).
To create your tassel:
I used my small Clover Tassel maker to create 11 tassels for the scarf.
- Set your tassel maker to be 4.5 inches long.
- Wrap your black yarn 4 full wraps around the tassel maker.
- Tie the loops in the center with a piece of white yarn.
- Cut along the upper and lower grooved edges.
- Fold the tassel in half at the tie and pinch the loops together about 1 inch from the tied top.
- Wrap your black yarn 4 times around the tassel (where you were holding).
- Tie the two ends of the wrap yarn tightly in a knot, twice.
- Trim the tassel to even lengths.
To attach your tassel:
- Thread a piece of black yarn on a yarn needle.
- Thread the needle beneath the white tie at the top and through the front and back loops of a stitch on R1 (I started at the seam line).
- Tie the yarn tightly twice.
- Thread the leftover yarn ends under the middle wrapped section of the tassel so the ends hang freely with the rest of the tassel threads.
- Repeat this every 15 stitches around.

Monday’s child is fair of face,Iona Opie and Peter Opie, The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1951, 2nd ed., 1997), pp. 364-5.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living.
And the child born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, good and gay
What day were you born on? I was born on a Friday.
