In need of something quick and easy for a last minute present? One of my favorite patterns for beginners is this infinity scarf because it works up fast with thick yarn and a big hook. This sophisticated black and white infinity scarf is versatile and soft as a cloud. It’s worked in simple rounds and can be worn in 3 ways so it matches everything. I made this to fit close to the neck, doubled, but you can make it as big as you want. All you need to know is how to double crochet and this Cookies & Cream Infinity scarf makes a beautiful lush gift. Here’s how to make it! PS… stick around to the END of this post for a BIG announcement!
Cookies & Cream Infinity Scarf Pattern
- Bulky weight yarn in two colors. I used 2 skeins each of Cloudborn Superwash Merino Bulky
- 8.00mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
Start with the black yarn.
1. Make a slip knot and create a chain that is as long as you want the scarf to be. Exact count doesn’t really matter, but for my scarf of 55 inches, chain 100. Feel free to make your chain longer, but only make it shorter for a child’s size.
2. Without twisting your chain, join to work in the round by working a slip stitch into the first space. You should now have a big loop.
3. Chain 2. Work one DC in each space around. At the end of the round, slip stitch to the chain 2 to finish the round.
4-7. Repeat the previous round for 4 more rounds.
Switch to the white yarn.
8-12. Repeat round 3 for another 5 rounds. At the end of the last round, BO and weave in any loose ends with your tapestry needle. Trim the excess yarn and you’re done!
And you’re done! I love how easy it is to make this scarf, which is why I include it in my 10 Days to Crochet email challenge to teach beginners. Plus, once you’ve made the scarf, there are so many ways to wear it. You can have it arranged so that it’s all white, or all black, or so that you get both colors showing through at once. However you decide to wear it, I think it’s awesome and it would make a really great gift too!
Handmade with Love SUPER Bundle!
A few months ago, I was asked to be part of something so cool and fun and full of crafty goodness. The folks over at Ultimate Bundles have put together their very first crafts bundle and it’s called the Handmade with Love Super Bundle!
What’s a Bundle?
Basically, it’s a VAULT of resources, patterns, guides and more for all kinds of crafty things from crochet and knitting, to sewing and embroidery. Imagine that 50 of your favorite bloggers, crafters, Instagrammers and crocheters pooled together their best digital products and sold it for LESS than those skeins of high-end yarn you’ve been eyeing.
The entire thing would be valued at over $1,000… But you guys can get it for $29.97!
That’s a 97% discount, but it’s only available until 12/04/2017 — and then it’s gone. You can still get the items separately, but it’ll cost you a lot more and you’d miss out on some exclusive bonuses that are included.
Here’s what actually included in the bundle:
