Hallo crocheters and positive thinkers around the world, I hope you had a great weekend and looking forward to a fulfilling and positive week ahead. Today I would like to focus on how to crochet a warm chunky infinity scarf. The pattern used is a repeat of different variations of the double crochet stitch, giving the scarf a wavy look.
I loved this project because it does not only allow you to use different colours of yarn in one project but also tests one’s crochet skills in each and every row you work and the use of chunky yarn makes the scarf to be warm.
Chunky yarn of preferred colour ( You can use more than one colour of yarn in one project). In all the scarves I made, I used robin chunky yarn.
Crochet hook of preferred size (I used a size 6 crochet hook).
A tapestry needle (To join my ends and weave in the loose ends.)
A pair of scissors.
A measuring tape.
Double crochet stitch.
The foundation chain for this project can be worked in two ways:
- Make a chain of 30 stitches then double crochet on the fourth stitch from your hook and work 26 dc stitches on the rest of the stitches on your foundation chain to make a total of 28 dc sts for your first row.
- Work a chainless base of 28 double crochet stitches to make your first row.
I used the chainless base but if you are not familiar with how to work a chainless foundation use the first method above. Make sure you have 28 dc stitches for your first row.
Round 2: Chain 3, turn your work then work 2 dc stitches in the same stitch; work 3 dc stitches in each of the next 3 stitches, in the next 3 stitches work 3 dc stitches with one top, in the next 3 stitches work 3 dc stitches with one top, work 3 dc stitches in each of the next 3 stitches; In the next 2 stitches work 3 dc stitches in each stitch, then work 3 dc stitches in each of the next 3 stitches, in the next 3 stitches work 3 dc stitches with one top, in the next 3 stitches work 3 dc stitches with one top again then work 3 dc stitches in each of the next 3 stitches and on the last stitch work 3 dc stitches in the same stitch.
Round 3: Ch 3 turn,2dc in same stitch, 3dc in next 3sts, 3dc with one top, 3dc with one top, 3dc in next 3sts, 3 dc in same stitch, 3 dc in same stitch, 3 dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc with one top, 3 dc with one top, 3 dc in next 3 sts , 3 dc in last st.
As you may have noticed, this project is worked by repeating round 2 until you reach a height that works for you. The infinity scarf is supposed to go round your neck twice it could be longer , so you are to crochet until you get to a height that suits you.
In case you are using different colours of yarn, you are to crochet for a number of rows then change your yarn and keep crocheting again for the same number of rows then change your yarn. This will ensure that you maintain uniformity in the pattern.
If you decide to use one colour of yarn, you will only add yarn to your project when your first / second ball of yarn is finished .
You may also have noticed that the increases and decreases in this project are worked along each row of the project.
For round 4 and all the other rounds: Ch3 turn, 2 dc in same st, 3 dc in next 3 sts, 3dc with one top twice, 3 dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in same st twice, 3 dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc with one top twice, 3 dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in last st.
All rows should have a total of 28 stitches.
Once you reach the required height use your tapestry needle to join the ends of your scarf and then weave in your loose ends.
The inferiority complex victim sees all facts through discolored attitudes. The secret of correction is simply to gain a normal view and that is always slanted on the positive side. # ThePowerOfPositiveThinking.
