Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern Inspiration
The Snowbank Infinity is inspired by cold, snowy days. If you use the color white like me, you will blend in with the snow! 😉 But, this scarf will definitely keep you nice and warm. It is thick, cozy, and soft. On a day when this scarf is suitable to wear, I would also be making a batch of pork stew or sausage gnocchi soup to serve the family when they come in from playing in the snow!
This design is also apart of the Stitch & Hustle 2021 Puff the Magic Stitch Blog Hop. This is an amazing event where you can get free patterns, win prizes, and more! It is even sponsored by the amazing brand, We Crochet (they are giving away some pretty awesome yarn). Check out all the details here.
What is a crochet infinity scarf?
Now, let’s answer some common questions about infinity scarves so we’re on the same page. A crochet infinity scarf is basically just a regular rectangular scarf sewn together into a tube. They can be made either in rows and sewn together, OR they can be worked in the round. For this pattern, we will be using the former method.
How long should a crochet Infinity Scarf be?
The finished length of your crocheted infinity scarf can be anything you’d like! A standard length for crochet infinity scarves is around 60″. If you follow gauge in this pattern, your scarf should turn out at 58″. However, I also include instructions for adjusting the length, so you can make it to fit you perfectly.

Chunky & Thick Crochet Infinity Scarf
One of my favorite features of this pattern is how thick and chunky it is…even though it just uses worsted weight yarn! We achieve this result by making the rectangle a lot thicker than a regular scarf. Then, when you double it over, it forms a lot more layers which makes it feel much bigger!

Repeat rows 2-10 until your scarf is the length you want. On your last repeat, omit row 10 so that you have 3 single-crochet rows at the end. (The very first sc row we did will count for row 10 when we sew the scarf together!)
I did a total of 117 rows for an approximate length of 58”.
Do not fasten off.

How to end a crochet infinity scarf:
Now that your rectangle is all done, it is time to finish everything up. Ending off an infinity scarf is not hard to do! We just need to sew the ends together.
Follow these 2 simple steps to finish your scarf:
- Match up both ends of the scarf with right sides together
- Slip stitch the ends together all the way across. You can also use your preferred sewing method, but I did it this way so I would have less ends to weave in.
Here is what my work looked like when I was slip stitching the ends together:
More Questions About Crocheting Infinity Scarves
How does an infinity scarf work?
So now you’ve finished your infinity scarf, but maybe you’re wondering how to wear it. Personally, my favorite way to wear an infinity scarf is to wrap the loop around my head twice. To do this, simply place the loop around your head once, grab the bottom, and loop it up and around your head again. Then, adjust as needed until it looks nice.
For more ways to wear an infinity scarf, see this post. (Note that not ALL the methods in that post will work with a thick crochet infinity scarf, but some will!)
What is the difference between a cowl and infinity scarf?
Generally, a cowl is only wrapped around the head once, whereas infinity scarves are long enough to wrap around twice. Cowls may also be wider than infinity scarves.
How many skeins of yarn do you need to crochet an infinity scarf?
It really depends on the pattern and yarn weight you are using. As you saw in this pattern, you need 4 balls at a 100 grams each. That is because this pattern is for a wider infinity scarf with yarn-eating stitches (the puff stitch, LOL). Other simpler crochet infinity scarves will not need quite so much yarn.
