Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern using Caron Cakes Yarn

Pin it for later:

After the huge popularity of my Ocean Waves Scarf crochet pattern using Caron Cakes Yarn, I picked up another skein. This time I chose colorway jelly roll for its stark contrast. The cake pop I used had subtle color changes that flowed seamlessly while this colorway switches colors abruptly to make a bold statement.

Infinity scarves are very popular with the younger crowd. They are so versatile and will add spice to any wardrobe. I used a lacy pattern to give it more drape and elegance. This is one pattern you can wear well into the spring. I hope you enjoy making it.

1. Worsted weight variegated yarn. I used one ball of Caron Cakes in color Jelly Roll.

2. Hook J (6 mm)

3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends.

65 inches around and 9 inches wide

3 Shells= 4 1/2 inches long

3 Shell Rows= 3 inches tall

Start making your scarf and measure for gauge after you have 4 rows of shells.Yardage
Used less than one ball of Caron Cakes.

Stitch Abbreviations
sc- single crochet

dc- double crochet

sk- skip

ch- chain

Stitch Explanation
Shell: 3dc worked into the same chain or stitch

Note: The Scarf is made as a very long rectangle and seamed at the ends to turn it into an infinity scarf. Initial ch is a multiple of 6+2.

Row 1: Chain 38, 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook, *(sk 2 chs, shell in next, ch 2, sk 2, 1 sc in next), repeat from * till end, turn.————6 shells

Row 2: Ch 5 ( ch 3 counts as first dc), 1 sc in first dc of next shell, *(ch 5, 1 sc in first dc of next shell), repeat till the last shell, ch 2, sk 2, 1 dc in last st, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st as ch 1, *(shell in next sc, ch 2, 1 sc in 3rd ch of next ch-5 loop), repeat from * a total of 5 times, shell in last sc, ch 2, 1 sc on top of beginning ch 3, turn.———6 shells

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have finished 5 color blocks. Your finished scarf is supposed to have a total of 6 color blocks. The next color on your skein will be the same as the first color block. So fasten off after the 5th block and join a different color from the leftover yarn. I used the cream part. You can choose whichever color you want from the leftover yarn from the cake.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 with the new color joined and end in a shell row. Your scarf should be nearly 65 inches long when this color is finished. Fasten off with a 15-inch tail.


Bring the first and last color blocks together on the wrong side, use yarn tail and a tapestry needle to sew them together only at the points shown. This will maintain the lacy texture. In the gaps, run your yarn through only one of the sides.

Enjoy your new Infinity scarf!

Okay I just wasn’t sure what is the proper way to do it. I am donating it to an auction for a charity and want it to be perfect. What would you suggest?


Monday 5th of November 2018

If you see that your scarf changed color in the middle of a row, unravel that row and fasten off at the end of the previous row. If you don't know how to change colors seamlessly, you can see a tutorial here:

How do you keep the changing color from starting part way through the row? I am using Caron cakes red velvet. Do I fasten off at the end of a row and start the new color?

Hi Tina, yes, you can absolutely do that if you don't want colors to change in the middle of a row.

I am making this pattern now. (March 2018)How long should the scarf be for a Cowl rather than a scarf?


Sunday 11th of March 2018

Did you mean that you wanted it to be 1 layer? Then it would be 30-32 inches around. Very close fitting one will be 26-28 inches.

Having a hard time with row 1 shells looking/staying even. Also, my last stitch ended up being on the skip 2 sts. Then, when I started over, the shell was the last stitch! Is there a video for this? Thanks!

I am sorry, I do not have a video. You can add to your foundation chain without ripping off your first row, see my tutorial here:

If your shells are not lying straight, it is likely that you are chaining tight. Use a bigger hook for the foundation chain.
