Free Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern | KT and the Squid

A few months ago I got a bunch of yarn on clearance at Jo-Ann’s. I picked up a skein of Bernat Mosaic in Daydream and had been staring at it for a few months figuring out what to do with it. It’s very pretty with yellows, pinks, purples, greens and blues. I thought the perfect one skein project would be a simple infinity scarf. Plus, it goes perfect with a purple shirt I have 🙂

Below I have the pattern with a fun little stitch for you all to try out. It’s called a herringbone double crochet. It’s really easy once you get the hang of it. In fact, it’s just a simple variation on the double crochet. It get’s it name herringbone because of the way it slants to the side. If you were to turn at the end of each round you would get the herringbone effect but I chose not to. I’ll warn you, if you’ve been crocheting a while it will feel a bit goofy at first (hard to break old habits I guess!) but it will start to flow after a few stitches.

To get the look my scarf has I suggest using a variegated or self-striping yarn such as the Mosaic I used.

Here’s the pattern! Hope you like it!

All KT and the Squid patterns are tested by wonderful volunteers. If you have any questions or need help just ask.


Worsted weight yarn (or any yarn)

  • For my sample I used Bernat Mosaic. Since the yarn has been discontinued. Red Heart Unforgettable is a great substitute and it comes in some amazing colors!

H hook (or any hook appropriate for your yarn)

Yarn needle



Ch = chain

St = stitch

Ss = slip stitch

Herr dc = herringbone double crochet


Gauge is not important to this project.

You may use any weight yarn with any size hook appropriate for your yarn.


I made mine about 2 yards in circumference and 5” wide but you can adjust this however you’d like.


  • Please read all instructions before beginning.
  • This scarf is worked in the rounds, you will join with a ss to the first st of the round. The ch 2 will not count as a st.

Special Stitches

Herringbone Double Crochet (herr dc): Yo, insert hook into st indicated, yo, pull through st AND 1st loop on hook, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo pull through last 2 loops.


Start by chaining any number of chains. This can be any length. I made mine about 2 yards long (I measure a yard from my nose to the tip on my outstretched hand). Being careful not to twist, join to the first ch.

Round 1 – Ch 2 (does not count as a st), herr dc in every ch around, join.

Round 2 – Ch 2, herr dc in every st around, join.

Repeat round 2 until your scarf measures your desired width (or until you run out of yarn).
I had just enough yarn to ss all the way around. I think it finished it off nicely it’s but not needed.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Easy Peasy Beautiful Scarf!  I hope I have increased you crochet knowledge!

  1. Hi can you tell me how many balls of yarn you used or yardage? Thanks so much this is beautiful!

    1. Just one. It was about 200 yards.

  4. Thanks for the free infinity scarf pattern. Can’t wait to try it. I really, really love the one you have on at the top of the page. Looks like lots of little flowers. Is this one of yours or where can I find it? Thanks again.

  5. Can you tell me how this scarf fits? I would like to end up with a warm scarf and two yards in length (for the starting chain) seems like it may hang a bit even when wrapped around once. I realize I can shorten it by using less chains but I figured I would ask how it fits before doing that. Thanks so much for the pattern!

    1. With this length I wrap mine 2 times to hang on my chest. I think it would be too long only wrapped once.
      When I was making my starting chain I kept joining and wrapping it around my neck until I got a length I liked. You could try that 🙂

      1. Thanks so much for your reply! This advise will help a lot. Love the stitch!

  6. Can you tell me how many chains you started with to get this length? You are the same size as my friend, and that is the perfect length.

    1. Honestly, I didn’t count I just chained until I reach about 2 yards.

  7. This is an adorable scarf. I found my Christmas gifts for my nieces : ) Thank you for sharing!

  8. Love your patterns-thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi, love the pattern. It was very easy to follow. I finished it but don’t know how to upload the picture to your site to show you.

    1. Hi Janet,
      If you are on Ravelry you can add it as a project.


  10. I haven’t even made it halfway through the first row and I can already tell that I’m going to love this pattern! Did you come up with the herringbone double crochet stitch? It’s wonderful! I’m going to make a whole bunch of these scarves for Christmas

    1. I found the herringbone in one of my favorite books Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia by Robyn Chachula 🙂
      I’ve been playing around with it for some other projects with it as well. I love that it’s thinner so I’m thinking it will be great for spring/simmer items too.
      Glad you like it!

      1. I have been making something similar using double crochet and half double crochet, but I love your pattern much better. Question – When crocheting rounds 2+, do you go in the back loops only, or do you crochet under both loops (in the space per se) (not sure of proper vocabulary 🙂 ?

        1. Hi Jaymie,
          I go in both loops 🙂

  18. For some reason there is no picture of the scarf showing on this page. And when I click on link (that shows up where the picture should be) I get a “404 Error” page.
    Is there another link to a picture of this scarf?

    1. It should be fixed now. Thanks!

  19. Thanks for showing me a new crochet stitch on this rainy Saturday! I’m halfway through the scarf already!

  20. Hi, visiting you via Congratulations on the feature. That is a really pretty infinity scarf which I think won’t be too intimidating for those trying a cowl for the first time. Thanks for sharing! Pinned.
