Although this pattern is rated as an Easy skill level and not a beginner’s skill level, it is beginner-friendly for beginners who understand the parts of crochet stitches and can identify and work in the back loops and of course, it will be useful if you know how to do the half double crochet stitch.
How do you crochet a ribbed infinity scarf?
This infinity scarf is crocheted by working in short rows, increasing the length of the scarf with each row. Once the desired length is reached, you’ll join the short ends of the scarf with your favorite joining method to make a large loop.
If you need a good gift idea, this scarf would make a great present for any lady who likes stylish and warm accessories.
It’s especially nice to be able to pull this easy crochet scarf over your head if you have curly hair and don’t want to flatten those curls with a hat.
Stitches Used for the Crochet Ribbed Infinity Scarf
To keep this infinity scarf pattern simple, I used half double crochets worked in the back loop only which gives that gorgeous ribbing. The last stitch of each row is worked through both loops like a normal half double crochet, giving you a super clean edge. Easy, right?
You’ll love the texture of created by the combination of the soft, thin yarn and the ribbing. It feels nice against your skin and is so comfortable and warm to wear.
I really think an adventurous beginner could tackle this pattern and it would be a great opportunity to learn a joining stitch like a whip stitch if you haven’t learned that yet.
Yarn Used to Crochet a Ribbed Infinity Scarf
Do you have a favorite go-to yarn? I certainly do and it’s Premier Everyday Anti-Pilling Yarn. I love crocheting with it, I love the drape it creates and I love the wide range of colors available.
Normally I reach for their worsted weight acrylic, but for this easy scarf, I tried out their DK-weight anti-pilling yarn for the first time and loved it just as much as their medium-weight yarn.
The great thing about ordering from Premier Yarn is their reward program where you can earn points to use towards purchasing more yarn! You can sign up here through my link and you get a coupon and I get rewards. FUN!
If you are wondering what other yarns you can use for this pattern, I have great news for you! Pretty much and soft DK-weight yarn or even a medium-weight yarn will work.
There are many baby yarns that are DK-weight, but the only problem there is you are usually limited to baby-specific colors. Paintbox Yarns Simply DK has a wide range of color options and so does Stylecraft Special DK.
If you use a worsted weight yarn instead of a light-weight yarn, you can keep the starting chain the same and you’ll just have a ribbed scarf that is a little wider. Instead of working the number of rows specified in the pattern, I would work until the scarf is approximately 62″ long and then join it, otherwise, it might end up awkwardly long using worsted-weight yarn. Also, if you use a thicker yarn, be sure to adjust your hook size to match the yarn.

Join the short ends of the scarf together to form a circle and whip stitch or use another joining method. I worked through two loops on one side and one loop on the other side to match the ribbing pattern as closely as possible. Weave in ends.
