The Selma Chunky Infinity Scarf crochet pattern works up quickly and gives you a delightfully textured and squishy scarf perfect for keeping you warm all winter.
Over the last 2 years, my Snowfall Infinity Scarf has been worn so often that it’s looking a bit ragged, which can only mean one thing: It’s time for a new chunky infinity scarf.
While the Snowfall Infinity scarf is a great beginner infinity scarf, the Selma Chunky Scarf is geared more towards and adventurous beginner or those comfortable with an Easy skill level.
If you aren’t sure of your skill level, check out these helpful definitions provided by the Craft Yarn Council.
Having a neutral scarf on hand means you can wear it with anything and don’t have to think about coordinating as you run out the door. That’s a huge help for me as I am usually trying to get 3 little people out of the door as well. It’s a miracle if we all have matching shoes let alone coordinating accessories.
How Do You Crochet A Chunky Infinity Scarf?
This chunky infinity scarf is worked in joined rounds starting with a chain. The first two rows are the single crochet double stitch also known as the petit pois stitch.
The double stitch isn’t hard at all. It’s like single crocheting 2 together but instead of working over the next two stitches, you’ll work in the same stitch you just worked in and then the next stitch.
If you want to see step-by-step photos, be sure to look through the Petite and Pretty Washcloth pattern. The instructions are a bit different since you are working in rows for the washcloth and not rounds, but it will still give you a good idea of how to work the double stitch.
After the 2 rounds of double stitches, you’ll start on 2 rounds of puff stitches. I like to think of them as leaning puff stitches because they lean over the next stitch instead of standing straight up. The rows of puff stitches stack beautifully on top of each other and add all of that great texture. Follow this with a row of single crochets and you’ve completed each of the different types of rows.
You’ll be happy with how quickly this scarf works up.
Selma Chunky Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
12.0 mm crochet hook (I love this large hook you can get right on Amazon)
Large Eye Yarn Needle (These are my favorite especially for bulky yarns)
sc(s): single crochet(s)
sl st: slip stitch
ds(s): double stitch aka petit pois stitch (see stitch instructions)
puff: puff stitch (see stitch instructions)
Gauge: 4” x 4″ = taken in stitch pattern: 6 ds by 8 rows
Finished Size: approximately 64” around by 7.5” wide
To adjust the size of the scarf, keep the starting chain an even number.
Puff Stitch (puff): [yo, insert hook into st, pull up a loop] 3 times, yo, pull through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1
Double Stitch (ds) aka petit pois: insert hook into the same stitch as the last completed stitch, pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops on the hook. (You are essentially doing a single crochet two together (sc2tog) but you will not be decreasing. Working in the ch-1 vs working into the ch-1 sp: When you work into the ch-1 of the puff, you’ll be working into the last stitch of the entire puff – you ch 1 to secure the puff. When working into the ch-1 sp, work around the entire ch-1 instead of into the stitch
