What materials will I need to crochet this infinity scarf?
I used two balls of Chroma Worsted from WeCrochet, color #28052 Seahorse. You can use any color you like!
You could potentially use a different yarn altogether, but you should definitely choose one that is also worsted/4/medium weight. You’ll get even better results if your substitution has the same fiber content as Chroma Worsted, which is 70% Superwash Wool and 30% Nylon. Better still would be a yarn that is also a single ply, like Chroma Worsted and has a similar ratio of g/yd, which is 100 g/198 yds.
The more similar the yarn, the more your scarf will turn out with the same drape and size as the original.
You will also need a crochet hook, of course. My favorite crochet hooks are the Streamline resin hooks from Furl’s Fiberarts. They are lightweight, have an inline shape, and have a thick ergonomic handle that is easy on your hands. And they are just so pretty!
And lastly, you will also need a tapestry needle for weaving in your ends.
What techniques will I need to know to crochet this scarf?
This beginner crochet infinity scarf starts with a foundation chain. The first row is single crochet, all the way across. The second row is half double crochet stitch. The third row is double crochet stitch. You’ll repeat those three rows over and over to make your scarf.
Once you’ve crocheted all the rows, you’ll seam the two short ends together to make this an infinity scarf. Or, if you prefer a standard scarf, you can skip seaming the ends together.
You will find a helpful video tutorial here that goes from the beginning slip knot, through the seaming of the two ends.
