Magenta Infinity Scarf- Free Crochet Pattern

It has been pretty warm for scarves lately, but that doesn't stop me from crocheting. This magenta infinity scarf is warm, but the stitch makes it slightly lacy. Made up of simply half double crochets and chains, you can make this in just a few hours. 
I used two skeins of Simply Soft Lite in the color Magenta. I held two strands throughout, and a K hook. This scarf is worked in the round, making it seamless.
I chained until I decided it was long enough, about six feet. Not an exact number, but you could use about anything for this scarf. 
Join the ch with a sl st, being careful not to twist the ch. 
Row 1: ch 3, *sk 1, hdc in next ch, ch 1, repeat from * to end. Join with a sl st in 2nd ch of starting ch 3.
Row 2: Ch 3, *hdc in ch 1 sp, sk 1, ch 1, repeat from * to end. Join with a sl st in 2nd ch of starting ch 3. 
Repeat row 2 until your scarf is the desired width, or until you have run out of yarn. I used nearly all the yarn, and my scarf is about 8".

Tomatoes and flowers in October!
Enjoy this infinity scarf during these fall months. The rich eggplant/ purple color makes it perfect for autumn.

  2. This scarf looks gorgeous! I'm a bit of a beginner so I'm hoping you can clarify what 'so' means in the directions for row 2? (*hdc in ch 1 so, sk 1, repeat to end) Thanks!

    1. The "so" was meant to be sp, as in space. I fixed the error. Thank you for pointing it out.
      I hope that clarifies the problem!

  3. Thank you for so generously sharing this pattern. I'm going to have a go at it with sari yarn. :D Twisting will occur. I will be stern and untwist. I'm very much a beginner but this looks like a good thing to challenge myself with. Found this on Ravelry.

    1. This is truly a great beginner project, because of the simple stitches. Also, to prevent twisting, sometimes I work the first row, then join the chain.

    2. h9w do you work the first row then join the chain?

    3. To work the first row, then join, you would hdc in the 4th ch from hook, then continue with the pattern. Once you finished the first row, you would sl st into the ch 3 sp at the beginning, and with the tail, sl st and pull through to connect it. Then you can work the rest of the scarf in the round as normal.

  4. Thank you for the pattern. What does two strands throughout mean?

    1. Holding two strands throughout means you crochet with both strands of yarn (one from each skein) throughout the entire project.

    1. Yes. I chained that long so it would wrap two or three times. But you could make it shorter if you would like.

  6. I had trouble with the skip a chain and hdc making my chain pucker. it seems like you need a chain between the hdc to prevent that?????? Help.

    1. Yes, I did chain between each hdc. I had an issue with one of the pictures not showing up right when I first posted it, and it must not have reposted the correct copy. I fixed it, thanks for pointing that out! Hope this helps!

  7. I don't have enough yarn to use 2 strands so would using thick yarn like Lion Brand be just as good?
