Whip up a beautiful crochet infinity scarf in no time flat with the primrose stitch! Wonderful for transitional weather.
Design Story and Inspiration for this Free Crochet Pattern
The weather here in Tennessee is crazy. One of my students described it best when she called it bipolar. I mean, so far this winter we have had two spells where it was over 70 degrees and two spells where it was below freezing and even 6″ of snow on the ground once!
With weather changes like that it makes it hard to get dressed in the morning without checking what it’s going to feel like outside. It also makes colds and allergies worse!
A simple crochet cowl like this beautiful scarf is perfect because it is warm and cozy without being too warm and can easily be taken off if the weather is warmer than I thought it was going to be. Also a great gift idea!
Yarn Options for this Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
This pattern is crocheted by holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together as one. This is equivalent to a bulky yarn (chunky yarn, weight #5).
I had some extra Everyday Worsted yarn on hand so I used what was in my stash. You could easily use up some stash yarn this way!
Choose two yarns of different colors or shades to create a heathered effect!

Crochet Scarf Pattern Details
This scarf is crocheted flat in rows and seamed at the end. It is not worked in the round.
It takes 2 skeins of yarn if using worsted weight yarn. If using a bulky weight yarn you should only need one skein around 200-250 yards.
This pattern uses the Primrose stitch. You can see how to complete this stitch in this video tutorial:
How to Customize the Primrose Infinity Scarf
This scarf is very easy to customize! You can make it any width you like by creating a starting chain in a multiple of 3 and then adding 2 chains to it. Make it longer by adding more length, or shorter by taking away rows.
You could even crochet it in another weight yarn with an appropriate size hook (check the ball band for the recommended hook size if you are unsure).
