-Yarn – This works best with a lighter weight yarn. The yarn used in photos and video are Lion Brand Ice Cream & Premier Deborah Norville Alpaca Dance. Another good one to use would be Red Heart Unforgettable which is shown in bottom right corner of collage above. Look for these symbols:
The 4 weight covers many different yarns, many that are still light and airy. Perfect for this scarf!
-Smaller blunt needle
Techniques Used in Pattern:
Hdc – Half Double Crochet- (Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull yarn through, yarn over, pull through all 3 loops on hook.)
Dc – Double Crochet (Yarn over, Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull yarn through stitch, yarn over pull through 2, yarn over pull through last 2 stitches on hook.)
Sl st – Slip Stitch (Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull yarn through, continue to pull yarn through both loops on hook.)
Puff Dc– Puff Double Crochet The Puff DC is, simply put, the puff stitch and the double crochet combined in one stitch Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over pull through (you will have 3 loops on hook.) Yarn over again, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over & pull through (you will now have 5 loops on your hook) Yarn over one last time, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over & pull through (you now have 7 loops on your hook). Yarn over, pull through all 7 loops on hook. Yarn over insert hook into that same stitch, yarn over pull through, yarn over pull through 2, yarn over and pull through last 2 stitches (Again, simplified, we are creating a puff stitch and double crochet all in one stitch).
The infinity scarf measures 72” end to end. This allows you to double wrap the scarf to give a full yet fancy look if using a lighter weight yarn. Each section of this pattern measures 3 inches as shown in photo below, which means to create the infinity size scarf, you will work a total of 24 sections. Rows 2 – 7 completes 1 full section of the pattern.
One complete section is 6 rows and will be noted in the pattern below.
The scarf width if worked with the starting chain of 13, will measure 4” in width:
1. hdc into 2nd chain from hook & into each chain after. Turn (12)
2. ch 2, puff double stitch into 1st st, (instructions for puff double stitch above in techniques), skip next st, *puff double into next stitch, skip next st* repeat ** until you reach last 2 stitches, work puff stitch part of puff double in 2nd to last stitch, work double crochet last stitch. Turn (12)
3. ch 1, hdc into 1st st and ea stitch following to end of row. Turn (12)
4. ch 2, Repeat row 2 (12)
5. ch 1, Repeat row 3 (12)
6. ch 4, skip 1st st, work dc + ch 1 into next st, *skip next st, dc + ch 1 into next*, repeat ** to end working a dc into last st in row. (You should have your chain up (not counted as stitch), 6 dc, 6 ch 1 spaces. 12)
7. Ch 1, 2 hdc into ea chain space to end. (12)
8. Repeat rows 2 through 7 until you reach your desired length of scarf.
For infinity scarf in photos, you will end up working 23 repeats for a total of 72”. (Again, rows 2 through 7 is considered 1 section worked).
9. When you reach end, meet 2 ends together to connect.
You can either stitch the ends together with needle and tail of project, or you can work from front loop of end facing you to back loop of end on opposite side, slip stitching down to end. Finish off / hide tails.
I hope you have enjoyed the Archway Infinity Dress Scarf pattern. As I mentioned in the beginning, the lighter the yarn weight, the dressier the scarf. It is meant for everyday business / casual. If you work with an even lighter weight than I have listed above, you might even try dropping to J hook.
