Here in Germany, the infinity scarf has been popular for quite some time. I have a few fabric infinity scarves that I wear with my outfits, but didn't have one to go with outerwear. Now I do! Here I am sporting my new, forest-green infinity scarf. Below the picture, I'll provide the directions. It was an easy project that took me three nights.
To make my chunky infinity scarf, I used:
- approx. 3 skeins of 3-ply acrylic yarn
- a Q hook (15.75 mm) (If a Q hook isn't available, use a P)
|Get loose, chunky stitches with a Q hook.|
The Q hook is a Big Daddy when it comes to crochet hooks, but I wanted a loose stitch and was happy to use one of the old wooden crochet hooks I'd inherited from my grandmother because it feels like she's near when I use them. To get the thick, chunky look, I used double strands of yarn.
- Chain 18
- Double crochet (DC) into the second stitch from the hook. Double crochet all the way across, ensuring you have 18 stitches at the end.
- Chain two and turn your work to start row 3. Double crochet 17 to finish the row.
- Repeat step 3 until your scarf has 70 to 80 rows.
- Slipstitch the ends together and you're ready to wear your infinity scarf.
Next, I'm going to blog about some baby crochet projects because we've got some babies coming in our family, and I've been crocheting my fingers off these past few months getting ready their arrivals!
