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!

Did you use both types of yarn at the same time?

How many chains do you start with and do you use both types of wool at the same time?

I really love your pattern but for some reason when I do it, the number of stitches changes each row. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
