25 Infinity Scarf Crochet Patterns to Keep You Warm

25 Infinity Scarf Crochet Patterns to Keep You Warm

We’ve rounded up 25 infinity scarf crochet patterns that’ll keep you warm and toasty this fall and winter.

From infinity scarves for beginners and a few more advanced to free patterns and even a couple of our own, we hope you’ll find the perfect scarf to whip up.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Patterns

When a beginner crocheter asks me what they should start with in order to learn, I always say ‘a scarf’.

It’s the perfect item to practice, especially if it uses one stitch throughout the whole pattern.

My favorite type of scarf to crochet are infinity scarves because I love wearing them. In fact, one of the first patterns I designed when I went from a hobby crocheter to turning it into a business was an infinity scarf.

And I still wear it! It’s one of my favorites and I’ll be sure to share it with you below.

Before we get into the patterns, I’ll answer some of the most common questions about crocheting an infinity scarf.

How Long Should a Crochet Infinity Scarf Be?

Here are some standard measurements for infinity scarves:

Short: 40-45 inches

Standard: 50-60 inches

Long: 65-70 inches

Extra Long: 75-80 inches

It’s really a preference when it comes to how long you make your scarf.

As far as comfort, I like mine around 70 inches before seaming the scarf together.

How Wide Should a Crochet Infinity Scarf Be?

Again, this is really a matter of preference, but here are some standard measurements:

Thin: 5-6 inches

Standard: 7-8 inches

Wide: 10-12 inches

Blanket: 15-30 inches

How Many Chains do You Need for a Crochet Infinity Scarf?

There are so many factors to consider when it comes to this question. Like what weight yarn you’re using, what size hook, what length you want your scarf, and on and on.

I do something super scientific when deciding how many chains to make. Are you ready for this?

I decide how long I want it, start chaining and then measure with a yardstick. I then wrap the chain around my neck a couple of times to see how it’ll fit.

I know. Mind-blowing right? 🙂

If you’re following a pattern and using the weight of yarn and hook size they recommend, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting the right number of chains.

But you can still use my method even when following a pattern to make sure it’s to your liking.

How do You Join a Crochet Infinity Scarf?

There are a couple of ways I like to use.

The first way is to join the scarf ends with a single crochet join.

The second way is to use a tapestry needle and join using a simple whip stitch.

Okay, now that we’ve covered a few of the basics, let’s get to the patterns!
