As many crocheters are, I am guilty of having some...excess yarn...lying around the house. I came across a few extra, single skeins of bulky yarn and was trying to figure out what to do with them. And that's when this pattern was born! One skein of bulky yarn usually isn't enough for a scarf, but put two together in a chic braided knot and VOILA! You have something pretty cool and VERY simple! This pattern is so flexible, it will be more of a tutorial. Scroll down for instructions on how to make this trendy infinity scarf.
This pattern uses Wool-Ease Tonal yarn. Not a fan of wool? Check back tomorrow when I will share an acrylic version :)
sl st: slip stitch
HDC: half double crochet
Finished Size (gauge is not particularly important for this project):
Width of each panel: approx. 4"
Length of each panel: approx. 45"
Ch stitches at the beginning of the row do not count as a stitch
You can make your panels longer or shorter than 45", but if you want to wear your scarf wrapped twice make sure they are at least 45"
Make sure you watch the video to know how to tie and finish the scarf (link below).
Make two long, skinny scarf "panels":
Row 1: HDC in second ch from the hook, sl st in next, *HDC, sl st, repeat from * across (12)
Row 2: Ch 1, *HDC, sl st, repeat from * across (12)
Repeat row two until you reach your desired length. I used the whole skein of Wool Ease Tonal. Tie off leaving a long tail.
Finish the scarf by using the tail of your yarn to tie the ends together. You will have two different seams to sew, and you should join opposite colors (as demonstrated in the video). Weave in all ends.
And that's it! This scarf works up so quickly, you can whip it up in time for your next chilly winter day :)
