What Is a Crochet Infinity Scarf?
A crochet infinity scarf is a scarf that is a looped with no ends. A traditional crochet scarf has two ends vs an infinity scarf that is worked in a continuous round and is all one piece.
A fun fact to know is that an infinity scarf is actually a cowl but longer. A standard crochet cowl is fitted closer to the neck like the one-hour cowl while an infinity design is looser and is sometimes made longer so that it can be looped around the neck twice.
The best part about crocheting an infinity scarf in the round is that there isn’t any turning after each row! All that you need to do is keep crocheting in a circle to create the infinity design. Simple! Right?
The Crochet Stitch You’ll Need to Know for This Scarf
This whole infinity scarf is worked in just a double crochet! The double crochet is a great beginner crochet stitch and happens to be the one that I used when I created my first project, the color blocked blanket!

The Yarn That’s Great for This Infinity Scarf
This scarf was designed with a super bulky 6 yarn called Cozy Wool (from Michael’s) in the color Pewter.
I love it when I can find it, but it’s hard to find unless you have a Michael’s nearby. It comes in a variety of colors, all of which are beautiful. If you do find this cozy yarn, then you are in for a treat.
Wool-Ease Thick and Quick
A great alternative for this cowl is Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from Lion Brand Yarn. It is also a super bulky 6 yarn and comes in an even bigger variety of colors. Either yarn would work perfect to get the same look of the infinity scarf shown in the pictures.
Crocheting Tip: If you are allergic to wool, Lion Brand has a Thick & Quick yarn that contains zero wool, which would be a great substitute.
