Hello everyone, in honor of national crochet month I have decided to share my favourite chunky crochet infinity scarf! This pattern is so incredibly easy to make if you have any crocheting experience at all, so if you have been thinking about attempting an easy project this one may just be it! This pattern was designed by Ami from All About Ami, I definitely recommend checking out her collection of cute free patterns! 🙂
I experimented with the pattern a little bit so I will give you the patterns for both versions that I made. The original pattern is quite large and chunky, which I love, but I also made a slightly smaller version as well. In this picture I am wearing the original chunky pattern, but the gray and variegated scarves are both the smaller ones. The pattern is the same except for the number of chains you do at the beginning. If you want to make the large version then you start by chaining 27, if you want to do a slightly thinner version I started by chaining 18. Both patterns are 63 rows, I just altered the thickness for my own personal preference.
First I bought myself a few balls of Softee Chunky yarn. I’ve been obsessed with gray lately and my winter jacket is black so I thought it would be a safe colour. I also found gorgeous variegated yarn with the purple and teal that I couldn’t resist!
To begin you will need a 9 mm crochet hook and any chunky yarn of your choice.
1. Chain 27
2. Double crochet in the third chain from the hook, skipping one until the end of the row
3. Chain 2, turn work and double crochet in the spaces of the previous row with chain 1’s in between
Each row should contain 14 double crochets, keeping in mind that the first chain 2 always counts as one double crochet.
4. Continue this pattern until desired length or 63 rows.
5. Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Whip stitch ends of cowl
I made one chunky crochet infinity scarf with an initial chain of 22 with 66 rows another one with an initial chain of 27 with 63 rows and the gray and variegated scarves in this post have an initial chain of 18 and 63 rows.
This pattern is so easy to make that you can really experiment with it quite easily to get your desired thickness and length. I have a few different versions and I love all of them. I love their chunkiness with the combination of soft yarn. I want one in every colour!
I hope you have enjoyed this pattern as much as I have! I know mom and I have had to make a bunch of them because all of our friends wanted one, too! So I guess this is your informal warning that you may have to make more than one if your friends find out about it 😉
Happy crocheting, friends!
