This crazy cold weather has me wanting to make more and more scarves! But really, can a girl ever have enough scarves (especially when she doesn’t have to pay a ton of money for them because she knows how to make them herself)? I think not.

Here’s another easy infinity scarf pattern. It’s long and looks beautiful wrapped twice around your neck. I used Vanna’s Choice yarn for this one, but any worsted weight yarn will work.

    Ok…doesn’t look like my comment posted so I am going to try it again! :). I have a couple of questions: does the ch 1 on the hdc and sc rows count as a hdc or sc? When joining those rows do we slip stitch in the ch 1 or in the first hdc/sc? Thanks!

    • Susan February 18, 2014, 11:50 am

      No the chain 1 does not count as a the first stitch. Join in the top of the sc or the hdc

    • Rebecca February 20, 2014, 8:25 am

      Hi Patricia! I’m so sorry I didn’t see this comment. I actually DO count the starting Ch as a St, so you Ch2 (for a DC row) and then DC in the NEXT St and around. DC (or whatever stitch you are on) all the way around, putting your last one in the St where you’ll meet up with the base of the Ch2, and then join in the top of the first DC. I hope that helps. I’m self-taught so sometimes it’s harder for me to explain clearly or technically what it is that I’m doing 🙂

  • Claire May 6, 2014, 11:14 pm

    Hi! Thanks for sharing your pattern – I love it! But I’m having a bit of trouble…
    Could you please answer the following for me, so I’m clear:
    1. Does this pattern create a STRAIGHT seam in the round?
    2. Are you supposed to have 210 stitches in each round?
    3. Do SLIP stitches get included in the stitch count for the round?
    4. When you join Round 2 (Double Crochet) with a SLIP stitch, do you do the SLIP stitch into the SECOND CHAIN of the Ch2? Or the very top “v” of the Ch2 that adjoins the first DC?
    5. When you start Round 3 (Half-Double Crochet) with a Ch1, does this Ch1 count as the first stitch? At the end of the round, do you join the SLIP stitch into the Ch1 at the start? Or top of the first HDC?
    6. Round 4 (Double Crochet) – at the end of this round, do you DC into SLIP stitch below from Round 3?
    7. When it comes to joining Round 5 (Single Crochet) with a SLIP stitch, do you join the SLIP stitch into the Ch1 at the begining of the round? Or into the first SC?

    I just keep finding that when I get to the end of a round, I’m unsure of where my last stitch should be, and where to join my slip stitch, which means I end up with an incorrect stitch count (ie. 209 or 208).

    If you could help me out I’d really appreciate it!!

  • Bev August 25, 2014, 10:42 am

    How many do I chain if I am not using the Chainless foundation technique? Thanks for a nice pattern. Blessings.

    • Rebecca August 26, 2014, 6:26 pm

      Hi Bev! You’ll Ch 211 and then do a regular row of SCs, putting your first one in the 2nd chain from the hook. 🙂

  • michelle@decorandthedog September 16, 2014, 8:00 pm

    Love this scarf! Did you use 2 strands of yarn together or just 2 skeins total for the scarf? It looks thick so I wasn’t sure. Thanks!

    • Rebecca September 17, 2014, 7:53 pm

      2 skeins total. (Vanna’s Choice has a nice thickness to it even though it’s worsted.) Although, I don’t know if my gauge has loosened over the last year, or if Vanna’s Choice has less yarn per skein than it used to… but I just made the first one of the season, and had to go a little into a 3rd skein.

  • Yolanda September 24, 2014, 9:19 pm

    I love this infinity scarf. How can I make this scarf into a mobius scarf?

  • Dee October 12, 2014, 10:55 pm

    Nice looking scarf. Thanks for the free pattern. I also used Vanna’s Choice and it took more than two skeins. However, I hate wasting yarn so I just modified the pattern a bit. You can’t tell anyway.

    • Rebecca November 2, 2014, 3:35 pm

      A little modification never hurt anyone 🙂

  • Shyla October 13, 2014, 12:41 pm

    how long should the foundation chain (in inches) be if you are not counting the stitches? Thanks for your time!

  • Melissa November 2, 2014, 12:53 pm

    Would Caron simply soft work for this ? I have a friend going through cancer so she needs it super soft

    • Gerry November 8, 2014, 11:30 pm

      Beautiful Scarf !! Thank you…

  • Jennifer November 13, 2014, 8:50 am

    AH! I am almost done and just realized despite my best efforts to not twist the round at the beginning I did. Do I have to start all over?

    • Rebecca November 13, 2014, 10:35 pm

      Honestly? I would just go with it, if it were me. (Unless it’s an order for someone you don’t know, like an Etsy order; that might be another story.) I think scarves drape even better when they have a twist in them. If you’re that far along, and it’s for you or a friend, maybe just wrap it around your neck and see if you like how it lays. 🙂

  • Holly November 15, 2014, 6:41 pm

    Made this scarf with Madeline Tosh Vintage Sari, two skeins. Turned out beautifully! Thanks for the great pattern!

    • Rebecca November 18, 2014, 10:36 pm

      Ooh, I’ll bet it’s stunning!

  • Lini November 21, 2014, 3:00 pm

    Could you give me any hints for making this for a seven year old girl? I’m not sure how long it should be. Thanks for the pattern and the chainless tutorial. They’re great!

    • Rebecca November 29, 2014, 2:59 pm

      Good question. I would totally be guessing, but I would go with about 150 FSC. 🙂

  • Saranya December 5, 2014, 3:49 pm

    I love the scarf in the pic. As I am a beginner, it would be great if I could see a video of this to clearly understand.

    • Rebecca December 5, 2014, 6:30 pm

      Thanks Saranya! I don’t have a video for this scarf. However, it’s comprised of basic stitches, so I would recommend viewing tutorials on those stitches to learn how they are made. If you need a starting place, I always recommend Craftsy’s beginner crochet class. It’s hours and hours of video lessons and you’ll be a pro when you’re done. 🙂

      • Saranya December 10, 2014, 8:02 pm

        Hey Rebecca!! I tried it and it came out so well except for the few small flaws that I made at the start. Anyways,I love it. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern.

        • Rebecca December 12, 2014, 10:43 am

          Awesome! You’re welcome! 🙂

  • christina December 21, 2014, 4:24 am

    Hey! So im a beginner and have the first row done and don’t understand what to do next. Do I join the to ends together? if so how? Or am I completing the rows in zigzag fashion and joining the ends at the end of the project?

    • Rebecca December 31, 2014, 7:38 pm

      Hi Christina! Each row instructs you to “join with a slip stitch.” So that’s what you’ll do. 🙂 You’ll be working in the round, not in back-and-forth rows. Good luck!

  • Anita Shoffner February 4, 2015, 2:59 pm

    Hi there. Love the scarf and I am fairly new to crocet, but I don’t understand why you dont join top and bottom on row 1… and do you really have to count? Don’t you just crochet around until you get back to the beginning of the row and join with a slip stitch?

  • sheila February 16, 2015, 8:12 pm

    slip stitching the first round leaves the bottom hanging loose. what did you do to fix it?

    • Betsy November 29, 2016, 10:36 pm

      Can u please explain what I did wrong?
      Slip stitching the1st row leaving the bottom hanging. Am I doing anything wrong?

      • Rebecca November 30, 2016, 7:37 pm

        I use my end to sew up the small gap.

  • Kirsten March 22, 2015, 4:14 pm

    I don’t know why but I can’t find the pattern anywhere and if it’s a link I can’t get it to show. Please help.

    • Kirsten March 22, 2015, 4:18 pm

      never mind i had to change something on my computer to get it to show

  • Jasmine April 30, 2015, 3:01 pm

    Hi! This was such a beautiful scarf! Thank you for the pattern!

    I had a question – do you have any suggestions for weaving in the ends? I am so self-conscious that somebody will be able to tell where I weaved in the ends and I want a clean, polished finished :/

  • Tracey Sheppard September 12, 2015, 12:32 pm

    Hi sorry if this is a silly question but is this pattern using US or UK crochet terms? I always have trouble deciding which it is but once I know I’m OK. Love your creations xx

    • Rebecca September 12, 2015, 3:30 pm

      American. Sorry, some of my earlier patterns are missing some information 🙂

      • Tracey Sheppard September 14, 2015, 3:18 pm

        Thank you

  • Mercy September 15, 2015, 11:55 pm

    Would this pattern change if I only use one yarn? I don’t have 2 to make it thicker. Would the number of stitches or needle change?

    • Rebecca September 16, 2015, 9:34 am

      I’m not sure I understand the question. The two skeins aren’t held together — that’s just the total amount of yarn I used to complete the entire project (meaning, about halfway through the scarf I ran out of yarn and attached a 2nd skein). So if you only use one, no, you won’t be able to make the scarf the same way. Does that help?

  • Mercy Dahn September 16, 2015, 1:17 pm

    How would the pattern differe if I use an I hook. I don’t have anything bigger?

    • Rebecca September 16, 2015, 4:07 pm

      This pattern calls for an H hook, so you don’t need anything bigger. If you need to use an I instead of an H, I would just start with fewer chains, like maybe 180-190.

  • Lisa September 21, 2015, 4:07 pm

    In the beginning, I got my work twisted, now I dont want to go all the way back to fix it. Is there a way that I can keep going?

    • Rebecca September 21, 2015, 4:11 pm

      Actually, you’ll probably be fine (unless it’s REALLY twisted). Some patterns actually call for intentional twisting, like my Chunky Ribbed Cowl, because it helps the scarf to drape really nicely.

  • Patricia B September 24, 2015, 4:44 pm

    Thank you for another amazing pattern. I’m loving all the cowls and infinity scarves!!

  • Erna Jacob September 25, 2015, 10:52 am

    I crochet a lot thanks for any free patterns

  • Marilyn October 28, 2015, 7:13 am

    Loving this Double Wrap Infinity Scarf! Really easy pattern to follow and with the change of stitch on each row it doesn’t get boring! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Anne November 18, 2015, 8:29 pm

    I was wondering if this would be big enough to use as a snood as well or wold I need to have more foundation chains. I am only a beginner. Thanks

    • Rebecca November 23, 2015, 10:13 am

      Hi Anne! I don’t think this would make a good snood, as it’s a double-wrapping scarf, and you would want more of a cowl pattern to achieve that. 🙂

  • Jordan November 22, 2015, 7:25 pm

    Would you please tell me what are the finished dimensions of this scarf . I did not see a gauge given anywhere. This is a beautiful pattern and I just want to be sure it will be long enough to wrap around twice as shown.
    Thank you.

    • Rebecca November 23, 2015, 10:12 am

      The scarf measures 58″ around and is about 7″ wide. Some of my earlier patterns are missing complete information, and for that I apologize. I’m working through them one by one to get them updated. 🙂

  • Sharron January 5, 2016, 10:01 am

    I like how you crop your patterns for printing. Also the simplicity of the patterns thank you

  • Jamie-Lyn Cotton January 11, 2016, 10:02 am

    My sisters are always cold so this is on my list for them.

  • Kendra October 29, 2016, 4:13 am

    Hi! I’m a complete newbie at crochet, I’ve actually only have done one scarf so far, so I’m still learning how it all works. I was wondering, since I would like to work with what I have, what I should do if I have yarn that recommends a N hook? I assume thicker yarn and bigger hook equals less CH, but I wanted to make sure and possibly get some length suggestions.


    • Rebecca October 29, 2016, 9:48 am

      Hi Kendra! Since you’re a newbie, I’ll advise you in general (just so you’re aware) that it’s not always an easy thing to substitute a yarn that’s in another weight category. But for this scarf, luckily, it’s actually pretty simple. 🙂 The finished measurements are 58″ around by 7″ wide, so all you need to do (whether you’re chaining or doing the Chainless Foundation method) is make your starting chain about 58″ long (or you can take away a few inches to account for the stretching that will probably happen by the time you’re done). Then just follow the pattern as written until it’s about 7″ in width. Good luck!

  • Carmella November 4, 2016, 12:54 pm

    Everything is beautiful

  • Laurie E. December 26, 2016, 8:57 pm

    First of all, good luck and best wishes to you and all your family, congratulations on the imminent? birth of your new baby!
    I love all your scarves, and am working my way through them one at a time. Gave my boss one for Christmas (Shiplap Cowl) and she loved it!
    Again, good luck, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

  • Theresa March 16, 2017, 2:47 pm

    Hi there. This looks really nice. Did you block your work once completed? If yes, what method did you use?

    • Rebecca March 16, 2017, 9:34 pm

      I didn’t. I rarely block anything. 🙂

  • Rachel Bathurst June 9, 2017, 9:16 am

    If I do the 211 you suggest if I don’t do the chain less and then stitch into the second stitch from hook how many stitches would I have to work into. Just want my count right

    • Rebecca June 9, 2017, 2:27 pm

      210 🙂

    • Rebecca June 9, 2017, 2:29 pm

      Though the pattern calls for a chain of 171 (which would be 170 sts) so I’m not sure where the 210 came from.

  • CutecrocheterJH January 10, 2018, 4:01 pm

    This is a beautiful scarf I can`t wait to make it!
