Crochet scarf pattern: Braided infinity scarf
I like to pair solid print shirts with a textured crochet scarf pattern. This braided infinity crochet scarf was something that I came up with for chilly days. It uses three full skeins of yarn and is a heavier scarf intended to keep your neck warm on even the coldest of days.
This pattern assumes that you know how to crochet basic stitches, such as the single and double crochet. It also incorporates the use of the post crochet stitches, which I have included a link to how to do below. For more cold weather crochet patterns, please check out my crochet cowl.
Crochet Scarf Supplies:
- Crochet Hook, Size H
- Worsted Weight Yarn, 3 145-yard Skeins
- Yarn Needle
Row 1: Count 2 chains from your hook and single crochet in the 3rd chain. This counts as your first double crochet. Double crochet in all remaining chains in this row. At the end, chain 2 and turn your work.
Row 2: Front post double crochet (fpdc) in the first double crochet space. Back post double crochet (bpdc) in the following stitch. Continue to alternate until you get the the end of the row. If you are unsure of how to do this stitch, I suggest watching this video, which shows the stitch done in slow motion. The back post double crochet is done exactly the same way, except you insert your hook behind the stitch instead of in front of it. At the end of the row, chain 2 and turn your work.
Row 3 – End of Skein, Repeat Row 2
After you have crocheted three skeins of yarn in this textured pattern, lay them out flat on a table. Single crochet the ends together to keep them straight when you begin to braid.
Braid the crochet strips together and join at end, using your yarn to single crochet the end of the scarf together.
Turn your entire scarf over and pull the ends together. Using a piece of yarn and your yarn needle, sew the two ends together.
Weave in all ends.
This scarf is long enough that it can be worn as is, or can be doubled. Since I know many of you will ask what type of yarn I used, I chose Vanna’s Choice in the following three colors: Light Pink, Silver Heather, and Dark Grey Heather. I love this yarn because it is smooth to work with on the hook and gives the appearance of being soft.
Do you wear scarves more for fashion purposes, or to keep warm?
