My Favorite Crochet Winter Scarf: The Icicle Infinity!
Join me in learning how to make my favorite crochet winter scarf: the Icicle Infinity Scarf! When I wear this crocheted scarf, it keeps me so much warmer! It’s so easy to make too…read more to find out the story behind the design, the materials I used, and of course the free crochet pattern!
I actually first made this scarf before I even started my blog. I was just starting out with design, and scarves were my jam. So when I got this cozy, soft yarn from LoveCrafts, I knew it had to be a scarf!
What I didn’t know then was that this crochet project would become my favorite scarf ever!
Since then, I’ve worn this scarf anytime I need to be extra warm—in the snow, ice skating, winter hiking, etc.
It’s because I love this scarf so much that I’m excited to share the pattern with you! But before we get into that, let’s talk about some extra tips you’ll need to know.
How is it Made?
The Icicle Infinity Scarf is a super simple design that even beginners should be able to make! We will start off by making a foundation single crochet row, and from there we will proceed to make a long, thin rectangle. The stitches in the body of the scarf are all simple—ch, sc, dc, etc. At the end, we will simply sew the ends together!
As I said, super simple and beginner-friendly!
Is there an ad-free version?
YES! There is an easily printable version of this pattern that has no ads, AND also includes a visual stitch chart!
How can I get the Warmest Scarf Possible?
If you want your scarf to be AS COZY as possible, yarn choice is extremely important! Most people know that wool is a warm fiber, but did you know that alpaca is often even warmer? Plus, alpaca yarn is actually much softer than wool on its own.
I used an alpaca blend for this scarf…but unfortunately it is no longer sold on LoveCrafts where I purchased it. However, that doesn’t really matter, because there are endless yarn possibilities! There are plenty of other soft alpaca yarns that you can find on LoveCrafts.com. (In fact, I highly recommend purchasing there—I’ve been so pleased with my purchases!)
