1-1 FAN-tastic Infinity Scarf. 1 Skein. 1 Day. Free Crochet Pattern.
I had one skein of this beautiful Cascade Roslyn yarn. It’s 65% wool and 35% silk, and is a great combination of soft with beautiful stitch definition. The yarn is so light and airy that I decided to make an infinity scarf that can be worn indoors in winter, spring or fall. The color is beautiful and screams “SPRING” to me!
The scarf starts with a really long foundation single crochet. If you don’t know how to do this, here is a great video. This is definitely a skill worth learning! I love working scarves in the round so I don’t have to sew a seam later. If you start with a simple chain, it’s really easy to get it twisted when joining. The foundation single crochet creates a beautiful, stretchy foundation that’s easier to join correctly.
This infinity scarf works up quickly by working on one side of the foundation single crochet for 9 rows, then switching to the unused loops of the foundation single crochet to mirror those same 9 rows on the other side. The end result is a beautiful infinity scarf with the fan pattern on both edges. It requires no sewing and no finishing work other than weaving in the ends of your yarn! If you want to change the width of the scarf, just alter the number of rows, making sure you end on an odd numbered row so the fans really show!
And this pattern isn’t nearly as complex as it looks below! It’s actually just a 2 row repeat. Odd numbered rows are single crochet, chain 1, single crochet, fan…repeat. Even numbered rows are single crochet, chain 3, V-stitch, chain 3…repeat. Directions for the fan and V-stitch are below. The only complicated part is that you’ll need to slip stitch to the right place on each row. And that’s not hard either!
I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did! Grab some beautiful yarn and go for it!
