A few weeks ago, I asked in my Facebook Community what kind of patterns you are looking for at this point in the year. I heard a resounding "light weight scarves and shawls!" So I went ahead and designed this quick stash buster project for those random skeins of worsted weight yarn you keep in your yarn stash (come on...I know I'm not the only one!). Keep reading for the Eternity Knot Scarf free crochet pattern.
If you have followed my crochet designs for a while, you'll notice that the look of this scarf is similar to my All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf that I designed last year. The overall construction of the knotted scarf is the same in these two patterns, but this time I used a lighter yarn (Caron Simply Soft) and combined two visually eye-catching and open stitches to make this scarf much more suitable for the transition to spring weather.
This pattern is easily adjustable in length, and the great news is that you can use any yarn you have on hand! I have photo tutorials below to help you get started with the V-Stitch and Arcade Stitch. I think it is so fun to mix up the textures on the two different panels, but if it is a bit much for you, feel free to use whatever stitch you want for this piece. As far as assembly goes, it is very easy and I have a video tutorial below to show you how I knotted this scarf (again, the same technique I used for my All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf). I can't wait to see what color combinations you use! Remember to share them in my Facebook community group or on Instagram with #leftinknots!
Abbreviations (written in U.S. terms):
- st/sts: stitch/stitches
- ch: chain
- SC: single crochet
- DC: half double crochet
Not important for this project
- Length of each panel (before joining) = 40"
- Width of each panel = 4.5"
Video tutorials to help you out
- My finished size is listed above, but gauge is not particularly important for this pattern. Instead of specifying a total number of rows, I will specify a total length for each scarf panel. If you want to make your scarf longer or shorter you can easily do so by adding or subtracting rows from each panel. Just make sure your panels are the same length.
- There are no photos to demonstrate the knot in the scarf, BUT there is a video tutorial to help you available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYUquNmhFEM
- See photo tutorials at the end of this pattern for help with the V-Stitch and the Arcade Stitch
Panel #1 - V-stitch panel using Caron Simply Soft Party ‘Snow Sparkle’
- the ch 2 at the beginning of a row DOES count as a DC stitch
- From Row 2 and on, the last st of the row will be worked into the top of the ch 2 from the beginning of the previous row.
Row 1: (DC, ch 1, DC) in 4th ch from the hook, *skip 2 ch sts, (DC, ch 1, DC) in the next ch st, repeat from * 4 more times, skip 1 ch st, DC in last ch st (20) Turn.
Row 2: ch 2, skip 1, (DC, ch 1, DC) in the ch 1 sp of the next v-stitch from the previous row, *skip 2, (DC, ch 1, DC) in the ch 1 sp of the next v-stitch from the previous row, repeat from * 4 more times, skip 1, DC into the last st of the row (20). Turn
Continue repeating Row 2 until you reach a total length of 40” or your desired finished length. Tie off yarn leaving a long (12”+) tail.
Panel #2 - Arcade Stitch panel using Caron Simply Soft ‘Grey Heather’
- a ch 1 at the beginning of a row DOES NOT count as a stitch
- a ch 2 at the beginning of a row DOES count as a stitch
Row 1: SC in the 2nd ch from the hook, SC in next st, *ch 3, skip 3, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * one more time, ch 3, skip 3, SC in last two sts (19). Turn
Row 2: ch 1, SC in first st, *skip 1, 5 DC in the ch 3 space from previous row, skip 1, SC in next st, repeat from * two more times (19). Turn
Row 3: ch 1, SC in first st, ch 1, skip 1, *SC in next 3 sts, ch 3, skip 3, repeat from * one more time, SC in next 3 sts, ch 1, skip 1, SC in last st (19). Turn
Row 4: ch 2 (this counts as a DC st), 2 DC in the ch 1 space from the previous row, *skip 1, SC in next st, skip 1, 5 DC into the ch 3 space from previous row, repeat from * one more time, skip 1, SC in next st, skip 1, 2 DC into ch 1 space from previous row, DC in the last st of the row (19). Turn.
Row 5: ch 1, SC in first two sts, *ch 3, skip 3, SC in next 3, repeat from * one more time, ch 3, skip 3, SC in last 2 sts of the row (the last stitch will be worked into the top of the ch 2 from the beginning of the previous row) (19). Turn
Continue repeating Rows 2-5 until you reach a total length of 40” or your desired finished length. Tie off yarn leaving a long (12”+) tail.
Finishing the Scarf
Fold the panels in half and lay the loops on top of one another. Knot the scarf once or twice (twice is pictured in my project) by pulling the ends of one panel through the overlapped loops one or two times (see the video tutorial here for assistance)
When you knot the scarf, make sure the ends of each panel are approximately the same lengths. Using your long tails, sew the ends of panel 1 and panel 2 together to make the scarf into an infinity scarf as pictured. Tie off yarn and weave in all ends.
If you like this style of scarf, but you still need a project for cold weather (seriously you guys....it's still snowing with low temps below zero where I live right now! Brrr!) try my All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf. It is a great stash buster for and single skeins of bulky yarn you have stashed around ;)
