This is that odd time of year my friends. There are several weeks (possibly even months where I live) of winter left, but I find myself dreaming of spring temperatures, colors, sounds and smells. This week's free crochet pattern is an infinity scarf that will keep you warm in the winter months, but the airier stitch pattern and cheerful shades of purple at least hint at the transition to spring. And it's a single skein project that works up FAST...so you will still be able to wear it this winter after you make it. Keep reading for the free Frosted Berry Infinity Scarf crochet pattern :)
Part of transitioning seasons in the yarn and crochet world always seems to bring on an influx of yarn on clearance. This is both exciting, and a little sad, because you never know if they will bring the yarn back the next year, but hey....who doesn't love a good yarn deal!? I recently noticed that Caron Tea Cakes (along with the Big Cakes and Sprinkle Cakes) were on clearance at my local Michaels. So I snagged one skein of this Winterberry colorway to make this gorgeous one skein infinity scarf. Can't find this yarn where you are located anymore? Have no fear! Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick would also work up perfectly for this pattern!
The Frosted Berry Infinity Scarf is written with a simple stitch repeat. That means this project is super quick considering you are also working with a Category 6 Super Bulky yarn. And if infinity scarves aren't really your style, I have a tip in the pattern notes on how you can use this pattern for a regular scarf as well :) I hope you enjoy it!

Abbreviations (written in U.S. terms):
DC: double crochet
5 sts x 3 rows = 2” square in HDC
Length (before joining as an infinity scarf): approx. 70"
Width: approx. 6"
The ch 2 at the beginning of a row DOES count as a stitch.
Since this stitch is a bit more open, you may find that you want to block it. However, my project pictured was not blocked.
If you would like to make an open scarf instead, start with a few rows of HDC or DC before starting the stitches in the pattern below. Just make sure that you have 14 sts across before you start the instructions for Rows 2-72. Then add the same number of rows of HDC or DC on the end of the scarf as well.
Row 1: ch 2 (remember this counts as a st), DC in the fourth ch from the hook, skip 3, (2 DC, ch 1, 2 DC) in the next st, skip 2, (2 DC, ch 1, 2DC) in the next st, skip 3, DC in the last two sts of the row (14). Turn.
Row 2-72: ch 2, DC in the next st, skip 2, (2 DC, ch 1, 2 DC) in the ch 1 space from the previous row, skip 4, (2 DC, ch 1, 2 DC) in the ch 1 space from the previous row, skip 2, DC in the last two sts of the row (14). Turn.
At the end of Row 72, tie off the yarn leaving a long (12”) tail. You may want to block your scarf at this point. Then, using a yarn needle, sew the end of Row 72 and the foundation chain together to create a continuous infinity scarf. Weave in all ends.
