All Seasons Infinity Scarf



A few weeks ago this scarf was a feature of both my Works In Progress and What I Wore Wednesday posts.  Today I thought I would share how I made it!  This is a super simple crochet project -- you only need to know the basic stitches.  It also is very versatile; you could use just about any yarn and hook, you can also make it as skinny or as wide as you'd like, and you can make it as short or as long as you'd like!

I used Fan 12 from Super Stitches Crochet to create this scarf.

Fan 12
Ch: multiple of 4 + 3
Row 1: Work (2 dc, ch1, 2 dc) in 5th ch from hook, * skip 3 ch, (2 dc, ch 1, 2dc) in next ch, repeat from * to last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, 1 dc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, skip first 3 dc, *(2dc, ch 1, 2dc) in ch-sp, skip next 4 dc, repeat from *, skip last 2 dc, 1 dc below 3rd ch of tch, turn.
Repeat Row 2.  (See end of post for full citation information.*)

I just kept repeating Row 2 until I didn't have enough yarn to complete another row, then I slip-stitched the ends together.  (Making sure to line up all the stitches!)  This wasn't a large skein of yarn, but I am happy with the length.
