Yarn Used for this Scarf

Today, I used a number fine yarn for this crochet pattern. However, this stitch pattern can be used with a medium weight yarn also known as worsted weight yarn for a lovely look. If using a thicker yarn, make sure to check how wide the initial chain stitches are to see if that is how wide you want your scarf to be. The thicker the yarn, the less stitches you need for a specific size.

Making this Pattern into an Infinity Scarf or Cowl

Once you have crocheted the scarf, if you want the look of an infinity scarf or cowl, just lay the two ends flat and use a yarn needle and the yarn to weave back and forth between the rows of stitches to sew them together. I show how to do this in other crochet infinity scarf patterns.

Crochet Pattern Notes

This lattice stitch is worked in multiples of 4 plus 6. That means that your beginning chain stitch row should be divisible by 4 once you subtract 6. For instance, if I made a sample swatch, I might start with 22 stitches. 22 – 6 = 16. 16 ÷ 4 = 4.

Once you get past the first row, the pattern repeats as Row 2 is repeated throughout the pattern.

I made my scarf 70 rows; however, if you want a long scarf add more rows. To shorten the scarf, reduce the number of rows. This is an easy scarf to adjust the width and length of.


Chain 102 STs

Row 1

In the 6th ST from the hook, insert hook and work a SC. [CH 5, SK 3 STs, SC in the 4th CH]. Repeat across between [ ]. End with a SC in the last stitch.

Row 2

CH 5, SC in the first hole. [CH 5, SC in the next hole]. Repeat across between [ ]. End with a SC in the last hole SP.
