Infinity scarf or not? This super bulky crochet scarf can be either thanks to the clever addition of buttons!
Design Story and Inspiration for this Crochet Scarf Pattern
I had one skein of this yarn that I was longing to make something with, so I found a stitch pattern that worked well and just kept going until I ran out of yarn! I was going to seam it up to create an cowl but then I thought “why not put buttons on the end?” So I did. I love how it turned out – so soft and warm with a good feel to it. Having buttons gives it much more flexibility than a closed loop. I’ve tried it on several different ways and can’t decide which one I like best.
I usually use a worsted weight yarn or a bulky weight yarn for a crochet infinity scarf pattern, but this super bulky yarn whipped up in just a little over an hour! Talk about instant gratification!
Yarn Options for this Chunky Crochet Cowl Pattern
I used one skein of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, which is a favorite super bulky weight yarn of mine. I had recently completed a published project and I had a single skein left over. I loved this color!
If you don’t have any Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in your stash (but you should!), you can use any super bulky yarn that gets gauge – or you can even hold two or three strands of lighter weight yarns together to get gauge (such as worsted weight yarn or chunky yarn).

Free Crochet Scarf Pattern Details
This easy crochet scarf uses just one stitch – the extended single crochet. Now, before that scares you off just know that this is a beginner level pattern! An extended single crochet is just like a regular single crochet stitch except you draw up an extra loop before finishing the stitch.
How to Customize this Easy Crochet Scarf
This scarf is super easy to customize! Since it only uses two basic crochet stitches (chains and extended single crochet), you can go wild with patterns and colors here.
Hold several strands of yarn together (great stash buster) or experiment with a wonderful more expensive skein from the yarn store because it only needs ONE to make this super scarf!
