Buttoned Infinity Scarf

As much as I enjoy the quickness of crocheting a big, chunky scarf with a giant hook, I have to admit I’m a sucker for the look of a worsted weight scarf. It’s more time-consuming, yes, but it provides a sleek, intricate-looking accessory that can’t be matched by bulky yarn and an N hook. One way to make crocheting these scarves a breeze is to learn the art of the Chainless Foundation Stitch. So be sure you know how to do that before starting on this double-wrapping, extra long Buttoned Infinity Scarf. (Finished product measures approximately 6″ wide and 80″ long, unbuttoned… long enough to wrap a third time for a cozy warm cowl, too!) Have fun!

      I hope you have a chance to try!

  • Nona December 29, 2014, 5:04 pm

    Thanks for the pattern and for the new technique: chainless foundation. I made this scarf for a gift. Your pattern was easy to follow and it came out beautifully. Thanks again!

    • Rebecca December 31, 2014, 7:51 pm

      You’re welcome!

    I’m self taught and am always looking for good patterns that aren’t hard to follow, so I can teach myself new things as I do projects. I just started this pattern tonite and am not finished with the project, but I’m already totally luvin this pattern, my project thus far looks great, I absolutely luv it. Thank u so much for this very easy to understand pattern. This makes my crochet journey very enjoyable. I do have to admit though. At the beginning (the fhdc) I struggled, became very frustrated and almost said “forget it”, but tried one last time at the stitch, got it rite this time. So glad I didn’t quit. Keep up the awesome work with ur patterns. I luv them !!!

    I love how you can see the clean lines of the stitches. Wonderful simple lovely pattern!

  • Jenna December 25, 2015, 4:13 pm

    Thank you for the beautiful scarf pattern. I gifted the scarf to my Mom for Christmas and she loves it! I used Yarn Bee’s Fair Isle yarn and the color changes really look great in your pattern.

  • Tonya January 11, 2016, 9:16 am

    This is the perfect scarf pattern. I really like the buttons.

  • Karen Rogers January 11, 2016, 9:57 am

    I love the simplicity of this cowl and also that it is not bulky.

  • Kelly D January 12, 2016, 12:46 pm

    I love the button detail!

  • Colleen Maul January 18, 2016, 1:23 pm

    I love this pattern. I crochet but I have been Knitting recently and this would be a perfect patter for my projects i can do right now. I just love the chunky feel and the buttons bring some style to brake up the stitch.

  • Rhonda November 9, 2016, 9:33 pm

    I was wondering why you switch From an “I” hook to a “G” hook in the beginning of pattern please. Thank-you!

    • Rhonda November 9, 2016, 9:37 pm

      Sorry that’s and “I” hook to an “H” hook…

      • Rebecca November 10, 2016, 8:15 am

        I always use a larger hook on the first row of a project worked in rows, because most of us tend to chain tighter (or even if we’re using the foundation chain method, we work it tighter), which results in that side of the blanket curling a bit. I don’t note that in my patterns nowadays, but for this one I guess I did 🙂

        • Rhonda November 10, 2016, 9:06 pm

          Thank-you for being so prompt with you’re reply Rebecca! I wanted to let you know I absolutely love the pattern too. Just finished it, and Am very pleased with it, Thank-you so much~!
