Easy Chunky Infinity Scarf: Crochet Pattern for Beginners
Looking for a fun and easy crochet project? Try making your own chunky infinity scarf using color changing yarn.
With just one skein of Scarfie yarn, you can create a warm and fuzzy accessory that’s perfect for three seasons. Plus, the self-striping yarn makes it easy to achieve a beautiful variation and ombré effect without having to cut and join new yarn.
Scarfie is a roving style, single ply yarn. It is rather rustic and fuzzy and there is a slight variation in the thickness of the yarn in parts, but that just adds to the charm of the piece. Be careful if you have to pull out stitches, since the yarn sometimes has a tendency to stick to itself.
You could also you make this scarf in another bulky weight yarn, although the finished piece might have a slightly different feel and texture. Make a gauge swatch to be sure that your finished piece will match the pattern size.
This scarf is made with an easy pattern repeat, a variation on the classic v stitch. To make the v stitch, you will place two double crochet stitches into the same stitch or space. The piece is worked side to side, and then connected with a seam to form the infinity scarf.
Whether you’re a beginner looking to stretch your skills or an experienced crocheter in need of a quick project, this scarf is sure to be a hit!

Easy Chunky Infinity Scarf
By Candice Lynn
- 1 skein of Lion Brand Scarfie (312 yds / 285 m ; 5,3 oz / 150g ; 78% acrylic, 22% wool ; Size 5, Bulky)
- 6.5 mm crochet hook
- yarn needle

One size fits most adults
Length: 60 inches (152 cm)
Width: 8 inches (20 cm)
This pattern uses US crochet terms.
This scarf is worked side to side in rows and seamed at the short edges to make an infinity scarf.
You may want to use stitch markers to help keep count of the number of rows completed.
double crochet v-stitch: place two double crochet stitches into one stitch or space
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
dc v-stitch = double crochet v-stitch
sk = skip
st = stitch
sp = space
Loosely chain 22.
Row 1: 2 dc in the 4th ch from the hook (the first three chains that were skipped will count as the first dc of the row; the two double crochets in one chain are the first double crochet v-stitch), sk 1 ch, *2 dc in the next ch, sk 1 ch, repeat from * to the last ch, 1 dc in the last ch. (There will be 20 dcs in the row.)
Row 2: Ch 3 (this “turning chain” counts as a dc), turn. 2 dc in the sp between the stitches of each dc v-stitch across, 1 dc in the last stitch (here you will place the dc into the top of the turning ch of the previous row). (20 dcs)
Rows 3 – 91: Repeat row 2
Bring the short ends of the scarf together and line up the stitches. Working through both layers, use slip stitches to seam the edges together and form the infinity scarf.
(Alternatively, seam the short ends of the scarf together using a yarn needle or tapestry needle.)
Fasten off and weave in loose ends.
Optional: With any remaining yarn, make tassels to fasten to scarf for added decoration.
Deciding what to call this project has been a bit of a dilemma. I have lately been seeing what I’ve called an infinity scarf referred to as a “snood”. But what is your definition of a snood? I have always heard the term snood used to describe those fancy hairnets worn by women in the 1940’s. But I’ve also encountered snood defined as a cowl or infinity scarf that is partly pulled up to be worn over the head.
