Yarn: Bernat Cotton-ish by Vickie Howell (Colour: Grey T-Shirt)
Hook: 5.0 mm (H)

Abbreviations: R – row, round, blsc – back loop single crochet, bldc – back loop double crochet, st – stitch, sts – stitches

Note: Beginning in R2 you will be working in the back loop for this entire project.

R1: Leave an 8″ tail of yarn; Foundation Single Crochet 180 times, line up the beginning and end of R1 and make sure it does not twist.

You will be working in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch to join or chain additional stitches unless specifically indicated.

R2: (1 blsc in the first st, 1 bldc in the next st, 1 blsc in the next st) 60 times

R3: Work (1 blsc, 1 bldc, 1 blsc) in each bldc around. Skip all other stitches.

R4-R17: repeat R3, finish off and weave in ends. Use the initial 8″ tail of yarn to close the small gap left at the beginning of R1 before adding the edging below.

Edging: Now attach your yarn using a single crochet join, in any stitch that lines up with a double crochet on the unworked loop of R1.  Now you will work one ‘imitation’ round of R3 around; as an edging. Try your best to line up the stitches so it mimics the position of the other sets of stitches you worked from R3-R17.

  1. Your scarf is lovely. My daughter works up in the snow fields, this would be perfect for her, guess what I will be doing. Thankyou for the free pattern.

  2. I love this scarf !! This is my favorite pattern and I can’t wait to get started on it ! Thank you

  3. I love this infinity scarf. Can’t wait to make more for my friends! Thank you for posting a GREAT free pattern!

  4. Hi Carol 🙂 You are very welcome 🙂

    Unfortunately you won’t get the same ‘look’ for the scarf if you turn at the end of the row. This stitch pattern needs to be worked in rounds/spirals or alternately you could work one row, then cut the end of the yarn and reattach it at the beginning again and then work the next row. You will have some ends to sew in this way but you will still get the same stitch as the scarf.

    Hope this helps!

    The yarn sounds beautiful!

    All the best,

  5. I have a beautiful Malabrigo silk/merino wool blend yarn that I’d like to use – but don’t want an infinity scarf. So I’m guessing that I would make sc/foundation the length that I’d like the scarf and turn at end of each row.?
    If that’s incorrect, please advise. I’d just like a shorter-length scarf – soft and lovely…
    I made a gift scarf with this yarn for my daughter for Christmas and absolutely fell in love with it. It’s such a dream working with this yarn.

    Thanks again for all your help to those of us working to increase our own abilities! You, Dedri and a few others are sort of like having our own private crochet coach! and it is SO appreciated!

    Blessings to you!
