So I finally finished my first scarf crochet project of the year. It only took about 5 or 6 times to finally decide how I wanted to do it. I tried to get all fancy at first but I was getting frustrated when my pattern wasn’t working the way I wanted it to. So I finally just decided to keep it simple and this is what I came up with!
I’m pretty happy with it! It’s not absolutely perfect but I’m still quite happy considering the last time I made a scarf was about 8 years ago and it was nowhere near this kind of quality. When I made my first scarf, it was messy, sloppy and uneven. When I decided to get back into the crochet game, I did my research, watched a lot of videos and actually put effort into making it look a lot better so voila.

Blues and Marbled Infinity Scarf
Main Color – Impeccable Yarn, Loops and Threads in Navy
Striped Color – Impeccable Yarn, Loops and Threads, in Tropical Storm (Blue Brown Ombre)
5.5 mm Crochet Hook
Not really too important as scarves are objective. At the end of it all, the scarf measured 52 inches flat. It fit snug when wrapped around twice. To make it longer, just add more rows. To make it skinnier, decrease amount of stitches.
- I chose to stripe it this way but of course, you are welcome to stripe it however you want. For the purpose of this particular stripe design, it’s a set of 12 rows. If you are following the design as is, you would increase/decrease the length of the scarf by a set of 12.
- I used 100% acrylic yarn which I know isn’t the softest but you can soften it by googling ways on how to do it to get the softness and drape you want.
- Each row is 28 DCs+2. Meaning, 28 DCs with a chain 2 (this ch2 is not considered a double crochet stitch throughout the whole pattern).
- With the color change, I did the carry yarn method throughout each row. You are welcome to cut off after each row if you don’t mind weaving in all your ends after.
USE COLOR A
ROW 1: DC in 2nd hook from chain and DC throughout the rest of the row, CH 2 and turn. (28 sts – for every row from now on).
ROW 2: DC in first st and continue DC throughout (CH 2 doesn’t count as stitch). CH 2 and turn.
ROW 3-5: Repeat Row 2 (5 ROWS OF COLOR A)
FROM HERE ON OUT, JUST REPEAT ROW 2, just mind the COLOUR CHANGES.
USE COLOR B ROW 4-9 (4 ROWS OF COLOR B)
BACK TO COLOR A ROW 10-11 (2 ROWS OF COLOR A)
BACK TO COLOR B ROW 12 (1 ROW OF COLOR B)
Repeat this COLOR sequence until you have reached the length you want (ROWS 1 – 12) For mine in the picture above, I did 6 sets of 12 (72 rows). If you want it longer, do another increment of 12 rows, likewise if you want to decrease. Each set should end in only 1 row of COLOR B.
FINISH: Finish off last stitch and fold scarf in half, matching ends together. Continue to slip stitch each stitch across and cut off yarn. Weave in all the necessary yarns stragglers and you are done!
