Chunky Infinity Scarf Pattern

by Dana

I completed a pretty nifty infinity scarf for myself over holiday break and wanted to share. I used the stitch pattern called the Pavement Infinity Scarf, which is found here.  Please note that I used a few different materials than what the pattern called for. Here are the details:

I used a much bigger hook (US S) for the project as I crochet tighter and also wanted a much loser fabric for my scarf. I also used more yarn and choose to carry a medium weight yarn (Vanna’s Choice) along with the Thick & Quick to get a multicolored and chunkier look to the piece.

Hook size used:

Yarn used:

Also, when working through the pattern, I did come across one issue in the following part shown in bold:
 
Foundation Row: In the 4th chain from the hook, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. *Skip two chains and then in the next ch, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. Repeat 3 more times from * to end, then in the last ch, work 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in the same ch.
 
When I worked this part in the last chain (ch), it didn’t look right as too much was being worked into that last chain, so I worked just 1 dc in that last chain stitch and the foundation row worked out much better. So, with this fix, the pattern looks as follows:
 
Foundation Row: In the 4th chain from the hook, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. *Skip two chains and then in the next ch, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. Repeat 3 more times from * to end, then in the last ch, work 1 dc.
 
Then, I continued on with Row 1 of the pattern. I worked until my scarf was 80 inches long as I wanted one that I could wrap around my neck and shoulders a few times. It also is wide enough that I can pull it up and wear it as a hood when it is wrapped up tightly around my neck.
 
Here is how my scarf turned out:

 

It is quite a lovely pattern that works up very quickly and can be worn in so many different ways.  I have worn it a lot since finishing and have gotten numerous compliments. I encourage everyone to check out the pattern designer’s website and give the pattern a try.

Enjoy!

    I was wondering if you had a video out there of the first few rows. It has been awhile since I have crocheted and I don’t know the verbiage. REALLY want to make this scarf.

    I tried the pattern with your modifications but I worked my dc in the space between each V instead of in the space in the center of each V. It turned out really nice!
