This infinity scarf is worked with super chunky yarn ( size 6) and a very large hook. The scarf has a knit look to it and will make a wonderful uptown accessory in two to three hours. The challenge with designing using a chunky yarn has always been to keep the stitches simple and not over the top. With a yarn that has so much personality, I feel you should keep the design minimal and let the yarn do all the talking. Photographing it was another big challenge. I had to play so much with the lighting to finally capture the real colors. I still feel the pictures don’t do much justice to the real scarf. You can make the scarf in two colors like I did or one single color. I think it would look lovely in colors mustard or purple. Crochet this chunky scarf to add spice to your winter wardrobe this season.
I used 4 skeins of Cozy wool from Loops and Threads for this scarf. If you are looking for a cheaper option for the same yarn weight, you can use Hometown USA from Lion Brand. It won’t break your bank and comes in a kaleidoscope of colors.
1. Yarn: Super Bulky, size 6 yarn. I used Cozy Wool from Loops and Threads in colors Granite and
Fleece. The UK/Australian equivalent is 14 ply.
2. Hook: Hook Q (15.75 mm) and a hook H (5mm) to weave in the tails.
Finished measurements: 61 inches in circumference and 9 inches wide
4 sc st = 3 inches
I used about 200 yards of each color.
The pattern is in standard American terms.
sc – single crochet
sl st- slip stitch
ch – chain
Ch 81 with Q hook and color Granite. Without twisting the chain sl st to the first chain.
Rnd 1: Ch 1 ( does not count as a sc ), 1 sc in same st as ch 1, 1 sc in each chain around, sl st to the first sc. Turn. ————-80 sc
Note: You should make your slip stitches in the next round loose or you won’t be able to insert your hook into it in the following round. To make it loose, pull you hook up a little to loosen the loop on your hook before inserting it into the next st to work a slip st.
Rnd 2: Ch 1 ( counts as the first sl st here and throughout), 1 sl st in next sc, 1 sl st in each sc around, sl st to the beginning ch 1. Turn-———80 sl st
Note: In the next round you will work into slip stitches of the previous round. The sl stitches will be stuck behind the sc stitches. To be easily able to work into them, lift the slip st with your fingers and insert the hook into it.
Rnd 3: Ch 1 ( does not count as a sc ), 1 sc in the first sl st, 1 sc in each sl st around, sl st to the first sc. Turn. ———-80 sc
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3 alternately 4 more times taking care to end in a sc row and fasten off.
Round 12 ( First round in new color): Turn and at the point of fasten off, sl st and join the next color. Sl st into each sc around, sl st to the first sl st. Turn.
Now again repeat Round 3 and 2 till your scarf measures 9 inches and you end in a sc round. Fasten off.
Weave in all the tails with the smaller hook.
