the scarf is nice. thanks for sharing the pattern. i see that many crochet bloggers getting ready for the winter these days :)
I sure am! Gotta stay nice and warm! :)
It is lovely, thanks so much for sharing it with all of us. Have a wonderful day,Meredith
Thanks, you are so sweet as always!
This is so pretty! Thank you for sharing. I'm a newbie crocheter but I can't wait to try this one.
Yay! Definitely let me know how it turns out! :)
So pretty! I hope you won't mind me linking up this week at Tangled Happy. Thanks so much for sharing this pretty pattern! :)
Thanks! I wouldn't mind at all! :)
Thanks Jennifer! Look for this tomorrow at Tangled Happy. Wishing you a very happy Thursday! :)
Love the look of this scarf. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much!
Ohh... I love this! Can't wait to make it up for myself and maybe one or two for Christmas also. Maybe one in Wool Ease, and one in alpaca (my weakness!). I saw your post on Tanged Happy.
I love alpaca too!!! I recently made the Vanilla Bean Scarf (in the free crochet patterns tab above) with an alpaca blend and looove it!
Came over from Tangled Happy and I love your scarf! It is very nice of you to share your pattern. How did you form the "keyhole" style?
Sure! I just flattened the "tube" then wrapped it around the neck, then tucked one end into the other loop end...hope that helps! Thanks too for your nice comments! :)

do you whip stitch edge to edge, for one continous loop, or is it twisted and stitched? can you elaborate on that part, thanks.
Sure! I did mine edge to edge for one continuous loop with a whip stitch. Hope that helps!
What is the increment to increase the number of starting chains? Is it 2+1 or 3+1? I'm using 2 strands of worsted weight instead of 1 bulky, and it's not quite as wide as I'd like with 19 chains.
I hope you don't mind, but I linked to this in my blog. I love the pattern, so cute and simple :)
Love the version you made! I love the idea of color blocking it!
Thank you so much for this pattern. Made a scarf for my daughter, she's very happy with it. Was very quick to do also, even for a not very experienced crocheter like me!
Great, so glad you both like it! :)
Hello,I'm soooo loving this scarf.. I ran right out and bought yarn. However, i am having a difficult time finding any think and quick in my store that match (or are even close) to the color pictured here. Could you tell me what color it is so that i can order some online??Thank you so very much for sharing the pattern..
Thanks for your kind comment! The yarn is Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the "Linen" colorway. The Lion Brand site should have it...I bought it only about a month or two ago, so it should still be available. Hope that helps! :)
What size crochet hook did you use? I'm using an M (9.0 mm). The direction say N (9.0 mm). The width isn't right either. Mine is almost 8 inches not 6.5 in width.Thanks in advance for your help.Lynne
Lynne,9.0 is the correct size hook...mine is a Boye brand N hook and says 9.0. As far as the width...what kind of yarn are you using? Is it the same or a similar weight? When you began the starting chain, how long was that?
It might also be because of what type of "crochet-er" you are. Some people tend to stitch tightly and others loosely. If you are using the same type of yarn and your pattern is turning out too big, you are probably stitching looser than the person who designed the pattern. Just switch to a smaller hook. Same for if your pattern is turning out too small - switch to a larger hook. Hope that helps! :O)
Oh - and by the way - beautiful scarf! Going to make one for my mom!
Thank you so much. I love it. Can't wait to make it. So kind of you to share the pattern with us!!!!!
You are so welcome...I am absolutely delighted to...it's what I love to do!
When you say skip two, do you mean dc in the third stitch or the second?
Thanks so much for this question...I'm sure others may have been wondering the same thing. On the foundation row in that area, you'll want to skip two, then in the next chain (third), work the (dc, ch1, dc) all in that one chain. I updated that row of the pattern to make it more descriptive and detailed. No changes, just more explanatory.Thanks again!!!
First finished crochet project!! Thank you for such a beautiful, easy to follow pattern and such a stunning end product. Took me 3 hours to make a longer length one with 200g Sirdar Squiggle Super Chunky - No scarf this morning .... brilliant scarf to wear to go and fetch the children from school! Kate in the UK.
Sounds lovely! That yarn should keep you nice and toasty!
Hello,In your directions you put N (9.0mm) crochet hook. Did you mean N (10.0mm) or M (9.0mm)?It's gorgeous by the way!!! Can't wait to make it!!!Lynne
Hi Lynne!That's interesting because I went and peeked at my N hook and it says 9.0 mm! Does your N hook say 10.0? My hook is a Boye brand, what is yours? I wonder if they differ from brand to brand? Definitely use the 9.0 size though, no matter which letter it says...hope that helps!
When I realized the scarf seemed wider than directions instructed, I too was using a N-10.That explains the xtra width.I'm using the exact same yarn as recommended also.
Thank you for sharing this pattern. It was so easy, I could put it down to deal with life and come back and pick up right where I left off. It turned out beautifully. I used the same yarn in "FIG". I've already started another one for christmas gifts. I might have to consider one for myself! Thank you again.
It sounds beautiful! The fig colorway is one of my most favorites too! I just made the "Fiona Button Scarf" with that color...love it!

What a beautiful pattern! Although I haven't crocheted since I was about 12 I decided to give this one a try! I am using yarn that looks as thick as yours but only getting about 4 inches in width. Maybe I need to loosen up my chains, or increase by 6 chains... Also, any idea why my edges are not coming out a straight line like yours? Mine are wavy, which is not a bad look either. Thank you for sharing a beautiful pattern and pictures!
Thanks so much! I'm not sure why the width is different...are you using the same (or similar weight) yarn? The wavy edges sound really pretty! When I was making this scarf, I noticed that my edges were slightly wavy too...it seemed to straighten itself out the further I went along, perhaps because of the weight of the piece? Not totally sure. I always give a few gentle tugs while crocheting something as I am going to straighten it out too...not sure but this might help too. Happy crocheting to you! :)
Ok I think I know why I am getting the wavy edge! I totally missed the dc that needs to go at the end of each row. Good to know it can be done both ways though... Also, just got some of the same yarn you're using and now I'm getting the right width. This yarn really gives it a nicer chunkier look too. Thanks again, I'm really enjoying this :)
What a neat discovery! Glad it is working out now too! :)
Love this scarf but I can`t print it~~~Anyone out there can help??
Sure! I used to have a print button on on this site, but it began to malfunction and caused more trouble than good...An easy way to print is to highlight needed text, select "copy" with your right mouse button, paste it to a Word document, and print.
Will this pattern work with the lion's brand home spun yarn? The curly type yarn... I bought a grey variation of it that is really pretty and love this pattern so much so I'm hoping it might be a good combination but I'm not exactly sure if it will work for this pattern. Thanks so much! :)
That sounds lovely! Homespun is not quite as bulky as Wool Ease Thick & Quick, but I still think it would look nice, more airy and with more drape to it...what I would do is maybe work up a few rows and see if you like the look of it. If you'd like for it to be more bulky/thicker, just hold the yarn double and work the scarf that way...hope that helps! :)
Hi, I love this scarf and am trying to get it right. For some reason, I am getting a width of 8". I am using 9.0 hook and the same yarn as the pattern calls for. Could you tell me how many dc,ch1,dc there should be in each row? That might help; just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks so much!
Unfortunately, I gave the one shown away, but I took a peek at the picture and it looks like there are 5 "V"s plus the turning chain....hope that helps! Sometimes I will give the piece a gentle tug to straighten the stitches out a bit, often that will make it very slightly larger.
I want the width to be wider. what increments should I add to the chain 19? and then for the dc, ch1 and dc in same chain, do I just repeat that until I get to the last chain? Thanks so much! Its beautiful!!
Hmmm, let me play around with it and I'll let you know. :)
do you have any knit cowl protects
I do! Check out the "Spice Cowl" and the "Bubblegum Cowl"
Love this scarf. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks! You are so welcome!
I made this scarf this weekend! I used Red Heart Curly Q wool, so it was a little narrower, but the pattern was really pretty...and easy! I'm definitely going to use this pattern again! Thanks!
Sounds really neat with that yarn! Glad you liked it!
Help! I am a beginner and don't know what "in the same ch" means. I can single and double chochet but am lost on the rest of the pattern. I have been trying to study how to read these patterns but need help! Is it hopeless?
I find going on YouTube and search stitch interested in, lots of help watching someone.
Hi there!"In the same ch" means that the directions, in this case dc, ch 1, dc all happen in the same chain space...so you'll be doing all three of those things in one chain, creating the "V" shape.
I love you website! Your designs are awesome, thanks a bunch for sharing. I started working a this pattern last night and the scarf is coming along lovely. I will definitely mention you and your blog on my site when I finish the scarf up:)
Great! So glad you are enjoying it...glad it is coming along. :)
This is a gorgeous scarf! I'm knee deep in holiday gift crocheting, but I may have to take a break so I can make this for myself.
You definitely should...I started just this past year trying to once in a while make myself something, so glad I did that! I think a few years went by that I didn't do that! Have fun!!!
I am a beginner & I don't know what you mean by Row 1: Turn, ch 3 and work dc, ch 1, dc in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each "V"). What does it mean "1 spaces from the previous row"? how am I counting that? I think I'm putting too many stitches in the piece, it's not as lacy as yours looks. This will be the first scarf I've made. thank you.
Hi Lynn! Check out Michelle's explanation below, I could not have said it better myself...thanks Michelle!
I am a beginner also, and I finally realized what I was doing wrong. "Chain 1 spaces" is a noun and not a direction. You can google "chain spaces" to see diagrams that make this clear. I don't know if this is what was tripping you up as well, but I thought I'd comment in case any other beginners out there are confused like me!
I have been looking for something like this. I LOVE THIS scarf. I think this is going to be popular gift this year! Thank you so much for sharing!
Yay! Glad you like it!
After you turn and chain 3 ,where do you work the dc as listed in the directions ?
Lynn, you're making a "V" right on top of the "V" below it. The "V's" should line up. So turn, chain 3 and then in the single crochet in the center of the "V", you double crochet, chain 1, and double crochet all in the SAME stitch. If you need another guide, it's the 3rd stitch from the hook.
This is a fabulous explanation, thanks for sharing with all of us!
Help !! For some reason I cannot see the V ( circle then a V somewhat of a V?) If I just follow turn chain 3 then Skip 2 ch then (dc ch1 dc )skip 2 ch and continue like that on every row until my desired lenght. Should I be ok ? Help a Im all new to crochet thank you
@Annonymous from 10/21 with the the wavy edges... My first attempt resulted in very wavy edges also... I started over when I realized that I missed the last dc at the end of the row. Separate than the chain three/turn. Instructions state "At the end of the row, finish with a dc in the last space (ch 3 turning space)." I hope this helps!
Great advice, thank you for sharing!
Can I just ask- are these US or British instructions as I know the stitches are different.....I can easily convert as long as I know, thank you so much!
They are US...hope that helps! :)
I have already used two skeins of yarn and have not reached 60 inches. I was wondering if I made a mistake in the design. I am not using the exact same yarn, but it is LionBrand and the same bulk. Just curious.
Hmmm, not sure. What is the suggested hook size on the yarn label? That could make a difference. Also, what is the yardage of the skein you are using, that could make a difference too.
Should the foundation row actually say "end with 1 dc in last chain" vs "dc ch1 dc"? because I keep ending up with 6 v's instead of 5 and it is way too wide!
When you transition from the foundation row to row 1, you will turn and ch 3. This is also called the "turning chain" Each time you repeat row 1, you will put 1 dc in the last space (the turning chain space).
I'm so EXCITED to try this pattern. The length and bulk of the scarf was exactly what I was looking for.
Yay! Please let me know how it turns out!
Thank you for such a great pattern! My sister has been asking me to teach her to crochet and she told me she wants to make an infinity scarf. So this will be perfect! Thanks again :)Paige
You are so welcome! What a cool sister you are!
I am a newbie at crochet. I'm sure it's my lack of expertise, but I'm almost ready to give up on this one so I have to ask. Foundation row - done. Row 1 done. Repeating Row 1 ends up in a series of rows that look like a ladder, nothing like the photo. What am I missing? Am I supposed to repeat the Foundation Row? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Are you doing your dc ONLY in the chain space - the "V" area? It looks almost like you a skipping a space where you should put the dc, but make sure you are in that chain space area. I have 6 Vs per row.
I can't thank you enough for posting this pattern! I just began teaching myself to crochet, and this scarf is a perfect beginner project for Christmas gifts. I can whip one up in a few hours, and it is beautiful!! My friends are going to freak. Thank you SO MUCH, Jennifer!
You are so totally welcome, glad you like it!
Thanks so much for this pattern. I just finished one for myself. I used 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft. Colors, Autumn Maize, and White. I also used hook, 10 1/2, K and it turned out about 6 inches. I think I will be wearing this a lot this winter. Very warm.
Do I go into the open V or the chain that connects the two dc that makes the V?I am new to crocheting and this pattern is really pretty!
I was wondering this also,after looking closer at the scarf pictured,it looks like there is a slight raised ridge pattern formed.This seems to be the only thing that I'm not completely clear on.
I agree Jackie but I don't know if the raised stitch is made by going into the open V stitch or taking the needle through the single crochet..if anyone can enlighten us, it would be appreciated!
Do you have a video on this pattern?
No, I don't, but that's a great idea!
When you are doing your chain, do you chain 19, turn, and skip 3 for your first stitch or do you chain 19 and then 3 more to turn?
You chain 19,and start working your foundation row from there.As stated in the instructions. I think!?Can someone else confirm this? This is what I am understanding from the instructions.
I understand the instructions to chain 19 and then start the first row..
Yes! Start by chaining 19...then work the foundation row...then for row 1 (which you'll be repeating) before you begin the row you'll chain three and turn...then begin row 1, hope that helps!
Hmmm I've tried this 2 times and the width both imes has been 8 inches. I hope it looks alright....It looks like i will be using 3 skeins to get the right length.
Check your crochet hook size.I thought I was using N-9, it said N-10 as I kept getting close to 8"also.Another factor t
Very true about the hook size, thank you!
Another factor that I think could be adding to the increase is crocheting into the single stitch of the "V". I have been going into the open hole and doing my stitshes there.Not sure if this is the right way, but seems to be looking more like the photo shown and more in keeping with the right size.
If this isn't the correct way and you should be entering into the single stitch,should it be one loop or two?
Any idea what the name of the lion brand yarn you used? This would make such great Christmas presents for my family in CO!
Sure it's Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the "linen" colorway!
I'm trying to make this scarf, but I'm kind of a beginner at this and I'm really struggling starting it off. I've read a bunch of the comments but still get stuck! How do I get from the foundation row to the first row after the turn?! Help!
Hello,Here to help! Check out the response I left for Marissa below. I think it may help answer your question too...
I love the look of this pattern too, but I'm also having problems on how to do Row 1 after the foundation row. I don't understand exactly where I'm supposed to be doing the dc, etc. I guess I'm not understanding what is meant by the "V." Hmm
Hi Marissa,The "V" that I am referring to in the pattern can also be called the chain 1 space from the previous row. In the foundation row you did a series of "clusters" which are shaped like the letter V and are formed by making a dc, ch 1, dc all in one chain space.When you go on the row 1, you will then make another one of these clusters in the V or chain 1 space from the previous row. This will give the appearance of v-shaped clusters stacked on top of one another. I pasted row 1 for you below so you can see where I am referring to the V, or chain 1 space.Row 1: Turn, ch 3 and work dc, ch 1, dc in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each "V"). At the end of the row, finish with a dc in the last space (ch 3 turning space).
Thanks for taking the time to respond! I will work on it again today and hopefully I can figure it out. :)
Although it doesn't specify in the instructions to do so, my understanding of infinity scarves is that they have a twist built in to them. So when joining the ends together, did you butt them right up against each other and stitch? Or did you turn one end over to create the twist and then stitch?
The scarf shown above does not have a twist, but if you wish feel free to do so. I always thought a twist in an infinity scarf or a cowl was called a mobius? I've seen infinity scarves without a twist and with an optional twist. The great thing is you can do whatever you like! :)Hope that helps!
I think what I'll do is sew some buttons on one end. It's a gift for my mom, so with the buttons she can choose day-to-day how she wants to wear it!
That sounds lovely, great idea!
Thank you from Nova Scotia, Canada for this great pattern.
You are so welcome, glad you like it!
I've just finished my scarf. It has definitely been quick and easy to make and the result is simply gorgeous. Thank you very much for sharing this pattern.
Lovely! So glad you enjoyed making it! :)
I really need to get ready for work, but I can not stop looking at all of your gorgeous patterns. WOW! Thank you so much for sharing all your work. Beautiful inspirations, every single one.
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind words!
I finished a few of these, one I did as a gift and one for me. I also am using the stitch to do a shrug for my prayer shawl group. I just love it. Thanks for sharing this.
Sounds lovely, someone will love it!
I jsut finished this cozy warm scarf today, what a great way to start the new year! Thanks for this fun, fast pattern!
Yay! Nothing like wearing something you made with love!
Such a nice pattern, thanks for sharing.crochet mamas blog
You are very welcome! :)
Hi, it's Maria from Flickr. I enjoyed this so much that I will be linking back to it from my blog in the next "vintage" posting. You may have an interest in seeing vintage knitting/crocheting patterns; here's the link; I assume you would have to copy and paste it into your browser. http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-vintage-knitter-is-back-at.htmlMaria
Thanks Maria! I didn't see it yet, I'll keep checking. :)
I think it's great that you share your patterns for free not many people do that and I really appreciate it! I made this scarf for someone and they loved it thanks to you!! You're awesome!!
Thanks Natasha! I'm so glad you liked the pattern...what a lucky friend to receive such a special gift from you! Happy crocheting!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern ~ this is a project I can not wait to complete. I absolutely love these type of scarf's. Again, thank you!
Yay! So excited for you, so glad you like it!
So I'm having a little trouble, my scarf is starting to curve, like a major upside down "U", i started like your instructions, but I don't know what I"m doing wrong!
Perhaps you are increasing somewhere? Or maybe the first or last stitch in each row is too tight?
I made this scarf in December last year and I've just realised I've never said thank you for sharing this great pattern. I love this scarf. Easy to make, warm and looks fantastic. Thank you so much for this pattern, you're a star :)
You are so welcome, I am so happy you like it! Thank you too for your really sweet comment! :)
Thank you for the great pattern : ) Im using a size N 9.00 hook and the same brand yarn and mine was coming out 8" in width like some of the previous posters. So instead of chaining 19, I chained 17 and got the 6" width. Love it!
Oh good, glad it worked out for you!
Loving this pattern. Resting fingers as I start second ball. So simple and great! THANK YOU!
Awesome! So glad you like it...thanks for your kind comment!
After I chain 1 What does double crochet from the same chain mean? (foundation row)
Hi Jade! All that means is that you'll be working the dc, ch 1, dc all in the same space which will give you the "v" shape...in subsequent rows, the Vs will be stacked on top of one another.
Thanks so much for blogging this pattern. I made it last night (so quick and easy) using 200g of yarn. The scarf is a bit shorter than yours but it looks amazing on - wraps round my neck twice so it looks like a cowl. Can't wait to wear it. I might even make another one! Thanks again. x
I finished my scarf tonight! Great pattern! I did make it a little wider and it turned out fantastic. Will definitely be making more for Christmas presents this year. Thanks so much for the free pattern!
