Fall is coming which means it’s the perfect time to make a crochet infinity scarf to add to your colder weather wear collection. I always saw tons these gorgeous blankets and patterns and some of the most beautiful ones seemed so complicated to make. Well good news for both of us is that I was wrong. Way wrong. Just because a pattern is pretty and colorful, that doesn’t mean its more difficult. Something very simple to make can have a beautifully intricate looking outcome! I couldn’t be more pleased with how this infinity scarf turned out just by striping in a few extra colors and creating a few well placed gaps to create visual interest. I will definitely be making even more fall patterns with this stitch!
I put the links to my facebook and instagram accounts below, I love being able to see your finished projects. If anyone has a suggestion for any new patterns feel free to tag me or DM on my instagram at anytime. Also if you get stuck on a pattern at any time, I usually have a quicker response time if you contact me on those two social media forums. Thanks loves!

Buying Crochet Supplies Pro Tip: If you purchase any of your craft supplies at Joann Fabrics like I often do, then you should really consider getting the Ibotta App on your phone. They have 10% cashback coupons for Joann’s as well as other cashback opportunities on certain yarn brands like Big Twist. They also have lots of other retailers on there but I pretty much only use the Joann rebates. I have gotten over $100 back from just buying things I would have bought anyways by scanning my receipt in the Ibotta App. You can have the money sent to your paypal or use it to get gift cards (Joanns, Applebees, etc).
Materials You Will Need
Yarn: I used 3 skeins of Caron’s Simply Soft in the colors bone, country blue, and ocean.
Crochet Hook: I used a 10mm Clover Brand Hook. It is a larger hook than suggested for this yarn but I wanted looser stitch for this project (plus it works up much quicker this way).
Tapestry Needle: This is a yarn needle to weave in your ends.
Scissors: to cut your yarn. The scissors below are the ones I use and keep in my crafting bag. They are super sharp and compact enough to carry with me and my projects!
Stitches Used in This Pattern
I will be using abbreviations (beginners check out my printable abbreviation cheat sheet) in this written pattern so here is a list of the names/abbreviations and brief directions for each:
Stitch (ST) – Next chain or stitch you are going to work into
Yarn Over (YO) – wrapping yarn around hook
Chain (CH) – After having an slip knot on your hook, YO and pull through your slip knot. That is a chain 1. YO again and pull through loop on hook. That is your chain 2, and so forth.
Slip Stitch (SS) – Insert hook into next chain/stitch and yarn over. Pull through chain/stitch and continue to pull through the loop on your hook.
Single Crochet (SC) – Insert hook into next chain/stitch and YO then pull through the chain/stitch. YO and pull through both loops on hook.
Double Crochet (DC) – YO and insert hook into next chain/stitch and pull up a loop. YO and pull through all loops on hook.

Timeless Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern
This crochet infinity scarf is a one size fits all. If you want a looser or snugger fit just increase/decrease the number of rows you make until it fits how you want it!
With your main color CH 29
Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook (counts as first DC). DC in next three ST. *CH1, skip next ST and DC in the next, CH1, skip 1 ST, DC in next five.* repeat this once more and then CH1, SK next ST, DC, CH1, SK 1, DC in next 4 ST.
***This will have created 3 pairs of gaps along the row that help add visual texture. You will continue the same pattern of 4 DC, 2 gaps, 5 DC, 2 gaps, 5 DC, 2 gaps, 4 DC for every row. ***
Row 2-3: CH 3 and turn (counts as first DC). DC in next three ST. *CH1, skip next ST and DC in the next, CH1, skip 1 ST, DC in next five.* repeat this once more and then again but only finishing in with 4 DC instead of five on the last repeat.
Row 4: Tie on with your second color (Dark blue for me). Repeat row two.
Row 5: Tie on with your third color (Light blue for me). Repeat previous row.
You will continue this pattern where you do 3 rows with the main color and then 1 row each of your secondary colors.
I made 70 rows total which is 14 repetitions of the 5 rows of color changes. Feel free to increase or decrease the number of rows in increments of 5 to adjust the size.
Weave in ends!
Fold the scarf in half right side in the middle. Match up ends of scarf and use your yarn need to whip stitch ends together forming your scarf into a circle. You now have the shape of your crochet infinity scarf!
- Feel free to skip adding a border if you like the way it looks at this point! I used all three colors of yarn and crocheted them together as if they were one piece of bulky yarn for the border
Border: Tie on to the edge by the seam Sc 2 per every DC row. Repeat in every row all the way around and join back to first SC with a SS. Repeat on bottom side of crochet infinity scarf.
Weave in your ends!
