Infinity scarves are all the rage right now and I was requested to make a rather large one. Most infinity scarves are small in general and sit on top of the breast, and to say the least, I’m not a fan. I want wide, long, and beautiful scarves! So when my friend and customer requested a large one, I was more than happy to make her something as fast as possible. It’s exciting to make something that someone will love but something that you could make again because you love so much! Without being wrapped, this scarf lands down past the stomach (74 inches long) and is large, but not quiet bulky (9.5 inches wide). Keep in mind, I’m super tall at a shocking 5’1!
– K hook
– Yarn of Choice (I used Caron Simply Soft in Dark Country Blue, 1 1/2 skeins)
– Tapestry needle
– Double Crochet (dc)
Chain 250. The length can alter as much as you want; for a triple wrap, chain 325. For no wrap, chain 150.
Row 1: Yarn over hook, dc into third stitch from the hook. Dc across to end. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Dc into first stitch, dc across to end. Ch 2, turn.
I repeated row 2 about twenty times. I crochet tightly, but the double crochet is a tall enough stitch to make this scarf wide, fast. Repeat row 2 until the desired width and leave a long tail. Using the tail, whip stitch both ends of the scarf together. Weave in ends!
You’re finished! Now wear your Infinite Midnight Scarf with pride! This is such a simple pattern, but with such fancy stitches around now-a-days, there’s nothing like the classic double crochet :)
