The Hartfield Oversized Infinity Scarf Crochet pattern is perfect for making a scarf so large it will keep you bundled and warm through the chilliest of weather.
Since we moved back to Minnesota, I’ve tried hard to not wear my winter coat until the temperature is below freezing. I’ll wear a large comfy sweater and a nice scarf for the windy days.

It may be all in my head, but I feel like not bundling up until I REALLY need to helps me not be AS cold all winter. Mind you, once it hits 20 below it is just COLD no matter what you do.
I love making large scarves that are easy to grab on my way out the door. Most of the time I prefer neutral scarves so I don’t have to worry about matching but this scarf does match my winter coat so it will work great on the chilly days and on the coldest of days when I actually need my coat.
How to Crochet an Oversized Infinity Scarf
The Hartfield Oversized Infinity Scarf is made by working joined rounds and has a simple 4 row repeat which is continued for a total of 42 rows.

The scarf is oversized in both length and width. It hangs loosely when wrapped around the neck twice and fits snuggly wrapped 3 times on those extra cold days.
Stitches used for the scarf
As stated before, the scarf is made of a simple 4 row repeat. There are two rows of solid stitches followed by two rows of open stitches.

The open stitches are made by half double crocheting, chaining one, skipping a stitch and half double crocheting in the next stitch. The solid rows are simple half double crochets.
Yarn used for the Hartfield Infinity Scarf
It is no secret that Lion Brand Jeans yarn is one of my favorite acrylic yarns. One of the first times I used it was for the Kristie Crochet Blanket Cardigan and it was so lovely to work with. It is soft and has wonderful drape.
Since first releasing the Jeans Yarn, they’ve come out with a Jeans Color line which includes 5 colors that aren’t typical jean colors but are related to pants. (Why is that sentence so funny to me?)
Another good worsted weight yarn with nice drape would work well. I haven’t tried Lion Brand’s Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling yarn yet, but I imagine it would work well too and has more color options.
