Chevron Infinity Scarf in HDC - Pattern and Tutorial

Want to make a
Chevron Infinity Scarf?


Here's how:

Gather supplies:
(I added some light blue and cream after I took the yarn photo.)

Here's the pattern:

ch 49

Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook, skip next ch, hdc in next 10 chs, 3 hdc in next ch, hdc in next 10 chs, skip 1 ch, hdc in next 10 chs, 3 hdc in next ch, hdc in next 10 chs, skip 1 ch, hdc in last ch. ch 1, turn
Row 2: and rest of rows:  hdc in 2nd st from hook, skip next st, hdc in next 10 sts, 3 hdc in next st, hdc in next 10 sts, skip 2 sts, hdc in next 10 sts, 3 hdc in next st, hdc in next 10 sts, skip 1 st, hdc in last st, ch 1, turn

and here is the pattern in photos:
ch 49


ROW 1: 


 hdc in 2nd ch from hok


 skip 1 ch and hdc in next 10 chs




 3 dc in next ch


 hdc in next 10 chs


skip 1 ch and hdc in next 11 ch 




 3 dc in in next ch


 10 hdc in next 10 chs, skip 1 ch, 1 hdc in last ch,


 ch 1 then turn



ROW 2:


 hdc in next ch




skip 1 st and hdc in next 10 sts 


 3 hdc in next st

10 hdc in next 10 st


 skip 2 st


 10 hdc in next 10 st


3 hdc in next st 


skip 1 st 


1 hdc in last st, ch 1 turn



repeat row 2 until desired length.




 Looks likes this after second row,


and this after four rows



Here's a color change 


At the end of the row, before the last hdc is complete,

slip new color through all three loops on hook. 






 ch 1, turn



Here's a review of row 2 with the new color: 






 hdc in first st




skip 1 st and 10 hdc 


3 hdc in 1 st 

then 3 10 hdc, skip 2 sts etc. as above

Keep on crocheting until desired length.
(You can use your neck to measure.)
I like the ones that can wrap around twice, best.
Then slip stitch the two ends together.
(I apologize, I forgot to take this photo with the pink scarf.)
It also helps if you end with the color you began with for a more hidden seam.

You can also twist the scarf before joining for a more rippled effect.

Have fun and keep warm in a crocheted scarf!

  5. Oh Thank you so much. I feel inspired and like I may actually be able to make this. I'm finishing up a braided scarf for my daughter and this is going to be my next project. I cannot wait. The photos are a huge help for me.

    Approximately how many rows do you generally do?

    1. Hi Kim,
      To wrap around twice depending on how loose or tight you crochet it would be approximately 49 rows, or whatever measures to about 45". Hope that helps!

    2. Oh shoot - I meant 49 rows to wrap around once. It's double that many...100 to wrap around twice but the 100 rows should be about 45".

  14. I agree with everyone, this is a very pretty pattern and your tutorial is great. As soon as I saw it I made sure to start it and i'm really enjoying making up. Unfortunately I have a lot of other things on the go too, so I can't finish it as quickly as I would like - can't wait to wear it. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Carolyn, just once or twice should suffice. Good luck!

  18. Hi this is so pretty, i have been looking and looking for the right scarf and i finally found it. My question is what kind/brand of yarn is this? I see someone in their post called it Cascade, but i can't quite make it out from the photo and i have some Vanna's Choice yarn at home and wonder if that would work instead. Wondering how thick/heavy the yarn is. Thanks so much, i can hardly wait to get started on this!

    1. Hi Happy Niteowl! I used a dk or sport weight, but the other scarf pictured is worsted and some of the colors may be the Vanna's choice. :-) I think any worsted weight would be nice.

    2. Great! Thank you so much Astri, i am anxious to get started!

  21. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I love the scarf. Your pattern seems easy and with the pictures I can see that what I've done is right our needs to be redone. My mom taught me to crochet 40+ yrs ago & I made a granny square baby blanket, then 21 yrs later I made another one for my first grandaughter. I haven't done anything else in the 19 yrs since. Recently I decided I wanted to pick it up again but I never learned to read patterns and my mom is gone so I have no one to ask and ALL the patterns I find are too difficult for me to figure out. This one is fantastic especially with the pictures as visual aids...

  22. LOVE your tutorials!! thank you so much for making this so easy for those of us who are a bit challenged! I love the pictures and the descriptions! I have bookmarked your page and hope to create lots more projects with your assistance. One question I have is how much yarn does this project require?

    1. Thank you Stephanie. I am glad you came by! 2-3 skeins of 100 gms each should likely be enough.
