Pretty Simple Infinity Scarf Pattern

Here’s how it works.

This free crochet pattern is for a simple scarf, the Pretty Simple Infinity Scarf Pattern. The stitches I used were chains, slip stitches and half double crochet stitches. To seam the ends into an infinity scarf I simply worked a slip stitch seam using the back loop of the top piece of fabric and the front loop of the bottom piece of fabric. Alternately you could whip stitch it together, or leave it without the seam for a great unisex scarf for the boys and the men in your life.

I enjoyed crocheting this – partially because it allowed me to try out a new yarn fibre I received in my Monthly Yarn Subscription- Classic from yarnbox and partially because I love the texture given to the scarf with the simple stitches.

This design can easily be modified – just increase, or decrease the number of stitches and the number of rows you crochet. Super Simple and Pretty.

A great last minute project using just 1 ball of yarn and a 8.0 mm (L) crochet hook. You could even whip up a few in a day for last minute gifts!

If you are joining this to make an infinity scarf there are a few different ways you can do this. One way is to turn the project wrong side up and sl st the two ends together. I worked mine by working in the the back loop of the one piece of fabric and the front loop of the other piece.

Sl st join

You could whip stitch the two ends together if you prefer.

Whip Stitch Seam

Or use the invisible seam stitch option.

Invisible Seam

Finish off and weave in all ends.

  1. Thank u much Rhonda. I need all the help with computers that I can get. Worked like a charm. Now, all I need is extra time to start crocheting.

  2. Hi Margaret, If you use the PrintFriendly button at the bottom of the post you can print a copy with (or without images) or even save a PDF copy for your own personal use 🙂 Hope this helps! Rhondda

  3. I have been trying to print the pattern for the pretty simple infinity scarf and having no luck. When it prints the pages overlap and cannot be read. Any suggestions? Is there any way I can obtain a copy. Have never had this happen before.
