I‘ve created this pattern in my mind a long time ago, when I came across a beautiful fabric scarf with those exact colors in my local fast-fashion shop. Although I love grey and use it a lot, I usually pair it with off white. But the beige here made all the difference.
Infinity scarf inspiration
Suddenly, I had a design in mind, with those two colors that blended so well! The crochet infinity scarf is formed in a tube, which just means that you work in the round. But…with a simple twist. You will have to turn after each round is completed when you are working on the solid colors.
This technique has two advantages: It keeps the seam straight, and it creates a subtle ribbing effect, just a little different from the normal way of working in the round. That’s because you are seeing both the front and the back of the stitch as when working flat. Simple and effective.
When you reach the part of the stripes, you are going to work in the round as normal. Meaning, joining with a slip stitch but no turning.
You will probably have a slight difference in your tension from these two different techniques, but this is quite normal and it’s actually what I love most of this scarf.
I chose to work this scarf with Drops Air, a blow yarn that I used a lot the past few months. It’s so soft and squishy, and the way its is made just makes it perfect for cozy winter accessories and garments. You will definitely feel loved in this scarf.
If however you are not able to find the Drops Air in your area or order it online these two below are great alternatives and they will work great for this scarf, plus create an almost identical effect as mine.
You will need:
Gauge: 13 sts and 18 rounds is 4” (10 cm) in dc
Yardage: 600 m, 656 yds
Dimensions: 6.5”x56” (16×142 cm) when laid flat
– The pattern is written is standard US terms.
– The ch 2 in the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch.
– The majority of the pattern is written for joining in the round AND turning after each round, with the exemption of the stripe section of R41-80 that is just normal joining and working in the round without turning.
– If you have to join the new yarn and cut the old one on the wrong side, place the cut yarn on the inside of the tube and secure it in a few stitches as you would normally do. It’s best to weave in your ends while making the scarf.
