Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
Working the foundation round of the Infinity scarf is the trickiest part. I have provided photos of each step to help guide you through this part. Please note that the number of stitches used in the photos are much less than noted in the pattern. I did this so that the entire chain and round would be visible to give you a clearer idea.
Also note that in this
pattern, 1 “round” will take you around both the top of the scarf and then the
bottom of the scarf, so in effect in will be like working 2 rounds.
Twist chain 180° (see Figure 1) and join with a Sl st in the back of the 1st ch to form a ring (see Figure 2). If desired, place a stitch marker to mark the join.
Foundation Round: Ch 3 (counts as dc), continuing to work in the back side of the chain [1 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in same st as join (see Figure 3; first fan st made), skip 4 ch, *[2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch, skip next 4 ch, rep from * around until you reach the join where stitch marker was placed, if used (see Figure 4; ), do not join or turn.
Working on the opposite side of the chain, [2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in same chain as 1st fan st made (see Figure 5), skip next 4 ch, *[2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch, skip next 4 ch, rep from * around until you reach the join where stitch marker was placed if used (see Figure 6;), join with a Sl st in top of beg ch 3 (see Figure 7) — 80 fan sts.
By now you see how your scarf foundation has a mobius twist in it, this is correct (see Figure 8).
Round 1: Sl st in next dc and in ch-sp, ch 3 (counts as dc), work [1 dc, ch1, 2 dc] in same ch-sp, [2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch-sp and each ch-sp around, join in top of beg ch 3 — 80 fan sts.
Rounds 2 through 10: Repeat Round 1.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Tips for a Custom Fit
The mobius infinity scarf pattern is very easy to customize to for your perfect fit. If you would like the scarf a little longer in circumference, just add to your beginning chain in increments of 5 chains. For example, instead of Chaining 200, you would chain 205, or 210, or 215, etc. (each 5 chains will add an extra fan stitch, or approx. 1¼ in. to the length). To make the scarf wider, just add extra rounds until you reach the width you like (note that each round takes you around both sides of the scarf, therefore, 1 round will add 2 fan sts to the height, or about 1 ¾ in). If you would like the scarf shorter, like for a cowl, just decrease the beginning chain by 5 chains, for example, 195, 190, 185, etc. (again keep in mind that each decrease of 5 chains will shorten the scarf about 1¼ in. to the length).
