How to Make a Crocheted Infinity Scarf

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Hello, hello! I'm Jess and I am so excited to be here today. Kristina's aesthetic and seemingly limitless talents have served as such an inspiration to me. When I started Spool and Spoon earlier this year, I never dreamed that I'd have a guest spot right here on one of my absolute favorite blogs. Spool and Spoon is where I get to embrace my creative side through food, fashion, and everything DIY--combining the last two might be my absolute favorite thing though. This 30-minute infinity scarf tutorial is just one such example of that!


Whether you're the craftiest crocheter on the block or the most beginner of beginners 
you can whip this together in less than one episode of your favorite TV shows. I promise!

1 skein of chunky wool yarn
1 large crochet hook (size H-J)
1. Start by crocheting a chain

2. Once it's at a length that can fit around your head comfortably, connect the ends with ONE stitch

3. Stitch another chain around the same length as the first

4. Connect this end to the loop at the same spot with ONE stitch

5. Continue crocheting chained loops until you've reached an overall density that you're happy with.
I ended up with 16 loops but yours can be as thick or thin as you want.

6. You can end it with a single stitch like the rest of the layers or loosely wrap an strand of yarn
around the connecting part of the loop to add a some bulk and a change of texture

It's cute and warm as all can be. The secret to success with this is to use the chunkiest/fluffiest wool or wool-blend yarn you can find and stitch it LOOSELY. When you're all done (which I guarantee will happen very very quickly), pop it on and enjoy your handiwork.



You can also create more of a waterfall effect with your infinity scarf by making each subsequent chain just a few stitches longer. I've made one like this before and always get compliments when I wear it but honestly, I like it better when it's all one length.
