In need of something quick and easy for a last-minute present? One of my favorites for beginners is this infinity scarf crochet pattern because it works up fast with thick yarn and a big hook. This sophisticated black-and-white infinity scarf crochet pattern 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. This Cookies & Cream Infinity Scarf crochet pattern is great for gifting and even selling finished scarves because it works up so quickly.
I love how easy it is to make this scarf, which is why I include it in my free ebook The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet. In the ebook, you’ll find this infinity scarf crochet pattern along with 11 other free patterns, tutorials and tips.
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!
You can play around with colors for this infinity scarf crochet pattern and really make it your own. I used bulky merino wool in classic colors to make something lush and elegant, but still cozy. However, you can just as easily use bright colors for something more fun and Springy!
The full free pattern is written out below. For those who’d prefer to print the pattern and take it with you for on-the-go and to markup as you go, you can buy the inexpensive printable PDF from my Etsy and Ravelry shops. The PDF is formatted without ads or comments, so it’s easy to read.

Cookies & Cream Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
Start with the black yarn.
Round 1: Make a slip knot and create a chain that is as long as you want the scarf to be. The exact count doesn’t really matter, but for my scarf of 55 inches, chain 100.
Feel free to make your chain longer if you want it to be a little looser. With this infinity scarf crochet pattern, you can make it as long as you like or make it shorter to fit a child.
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.
Round 2: 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.
Rounds 3-6: Repeat the previous round for 4 more rounds.
Switch to the white yarn.
Rounds 7-11: 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!
I cannot get over how soft and luxurious this merino wool feels. It’s the perfect yarn for a scarf that’s going to be worn close to the skin and it was quick and easy to make!
This would be a great little accessory for when it’s so cold you need lots of layers, but also nice on its own when you just need a little something against the Spring chill. Either way, have fun making and wearing this infinity scarf crochet pattern.
