How do you crochet an easy infinity scarf?

Are you ready to move beyond your basic rows of double crochets to something a little fancier? Or perhaps you are looking for a quick scarf that takes less than an hour to complete?

This easy Crochet Infinity Scarf has you covered!

This scarf is luxuriously soft and squishy.  I love that is it warm without being too bulky.

This is a perfect pattern for beginners. You only need to know double crochets and chain stitches.

The scarf is worked in long rows and then joined in a circle when you are finished. So, yes, it is that easy – you are just making a long rectangle!

The Stitches

To make the scarf, you’ll start with a long chain. You’ll them work a double crochet, chain one, skip a chain stitch, work another double crochet. The double crochet, chain one, skip one pattern will be continued until you reach the end of the row.

To start the next row, you’ll chain 4 which counts as your first double crochet and chain one.

When working the next row, you’ll notice that there are holes created by the chain one spaces. The stitch pattern is the same: double crochet, chain one, skip one, but the double crochets of row two will be worked right into those spaces while the chain one will skip over the double crochet in the row below.

That’s it! The rest of the rows are exactly like row 2. Easy.

The Yarn and Hook

Historically I haven’t been a huge fan of working with bulky yarn, but it wasn’t until I tried this Clover Amour 12 mm hook that I realized my issue hasn’t been with the yarn, but with the hooks!

Most jumbo hooks are fat, bulky and hard to hold. The largest hook from this Crochet Dude set was my favorite large hook, before it was smashed by a rocking chair. (RIP shattered plastic hook.) Even though it was fat, it was long enough to hold comfortably.

I’ve slowing been adding all the larger Clover Amour hooks to my collection, which now means… ALL THE BULKY YARN! Seriously the contoured and tapered handles on these hooks make all the difference.

The scarf only took one skein of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle, which is another reason it is perfect for beginners – there is no joining new yarn!!!!

Wool-Ease Thick and Quick comes in many different color options, which is great if you are thinking of giving this scarf as a gift. Everyone on your list can get one in a different color. WIN.
