What is an Infinity Scarf?

An infinity scarf is a circular scarf without loose ends, making it a closed loop. Typically, it’s long enough to wrap around the neck multiple times, offering warmth and style. In comparison, a cowl shares a similar idea but is generally designed to encircle the neck only once.

They can be worn in various ways, such as doubled up around the neck, draped loosely, or even pulled up over the head as a hood. They come in different fabrics, patterns, and lengths, making them a fashionable accessory for both warmth and style.

You can make infinity scarves by working them flat and joining at the end. Or, in the round where the rounds are joined often with a slip stitch each round.

Make this Circle Scarf Chunky using Worsted Weight Yarn

This chunky scarf pattern is crocheted flat and joined at the end. Making this easy for anyone to work, especially beginners. If you prefer to keep this as a regular scarf, just skip the joining instructions. The finished product will be lovely.

If you have a bulky weight yarn on hand, go ahead and use that. However, for this pattern, I used two strands of medium weight yarn to create a chunky look.

Skill Level

Beginner Crocheter

You should be comfortable with the double crochet stitch. The stitches are worked into the third loop which can be challenging for an absolute beginner.


12 stitches and 5 rows every 4-inches.


9 inches wide X 70 inches long.

This pattern is worked the length of the scarf. The length is determined by the number of beginning chain stitches.

This pattern is easy to change the size as you chain any number of chains when beginning this cozy scarf.

The rows create the width of the scarf.

Pattern Notes

The scarf is worked in rows and then later seamed to become an infinity scarf.

Pattern is written in US terms.

Use two strands of yarn held together.

Most worsted weight yarn does not call for this large hook. However, since the yarn held together creates a bulky weight yarn, I used a larger size hook than what is normally recommended on the yarn packaging.

Turn at the end of the row.

The CH 3 at the beginning of the row counts as a double crochet.

If you are new to crochet, counting the stitches in each row will help keep the edges straight.

The last double crochet should always be placed in the top chain of the previous row initial chain two. This helps keep the rows even.

The rows are worked the length of the scarf.

Chunky Scarf Using Medium Weight Yarn


4 Skeins Lion Brand Heartland Tweed yarn in the color Mount Rainier Tweed. 800 yards. If you are not able to find the yarn locally, you can purchase it from Lion Brand.

It’s mainly an acrylic yarn with a number 4 medium weight. It becomes a bulky yarn when using two strands held together. If you prefer not to work this easy pattern using two strands of yarn at once, a nice alternative would be Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick yarn. It is a number6 Super Bulky yarn weight.

Crochet Hook Size L, 8.0 mm

Tapestry Needle



CH = Chain

DC = Double Crochet

BLDC = Back Loop Double Crochet

SK = Skip

ST – Stitch

STs = Stitches

[ ] = Repeat Between


Using two strands of yarn held together at a time, work a Foundation Chain of 180 stitches.

Row 1

SK 3 CH STs (Counts as a DC). In the 4th CH work a DC and in each ST across. Turn

Row 2

CH 3 (Counts as a DC). Work a BLDC in each ST across. When you get to the last ST, work a DC through the top CH 3 of the row below. (Go through both loops not just the back loop). Turn

Rows 3 through 12

Repeat row 2.

When you have completed the last row, don’t cut off the yarn. Continue onto joining the ends together.

Joining the Ends to Make a Circle Scarf

Joining the Scarf to Create a Circular Infinity Scarf

You can use any method to join the ends. A slip stitch or a single crochet through both ends. You could use the yarn needle and work a whip stitch through both ends.

Today, I chose to work a slip stitch.

Align the ends of the scarf. Starting where you ended your last stitch, insert the hook in the stitch directly across. Yarn over and bring it back through the loop on the hook.

Insert the hook in the next stitch, then in the stitch across, yarn over and bring it back through the loop on the hook.

Continue to work the slip stitch joining the ends of the scarf until you reach the end.


Once you have reached your desired number of rows, pull the yarn through the last stitch. Cut the yarn leaving a 10-12 inch yarn tail. Using your yarn needle, weave the yarn back and forth between the stitches at least 3-5 times. Trim off any excess yarn.

How to Style an Infinity Scarf

There are so many different ways to style this finished scarf.

Classic Loop

Simply loop the scarf around your neck once or twice for a classic and cozy look. Adjust the loops to your desired length for added warmth and style.

Twist and Loop

Give it a twist before looping it around your neck for a chic and effortless twist. This adds dimension and visual interest to your outfit.

Hooded Scarf

Pull one loop up over your head to create a makeshift hood. This not only keeps you warm but also adds a touch of urban charm to your look.

Double Loop

Double-wrap the infinity scarf around your neck for extra warmth and texture. This creates a snug and stylish look that’s perfect for colder days.

Shoulder Drape

Instead of wearing the infinity scarf around your neck, drape it over your shoulders for a relaxed and elegant vibe. This works well with lightweight scarves for a breezy, bohemian look.

Layered with Jackets

Pair with your favorite jackets or coats for a stylish layered look. Let the scarf peek out from under your outerwear for added warmth and visual interest.

Whether you’re dressing up for a night out or keeping it casual for a day of errands, an infinity scarf is a versatile accessory that adds both warmth and style to any ensemble.

Easy Chunky Styled Scarf

Is worsted weight yarn the same as medium?

Yes, the terms are often used interchangeably. Medium weight yarns are often referred to as Worsted Weight yarn. Medium weight yarn is the most frequently used yarn since it is easy to work with. A great yarn choice for beginner crocheters as it can be used easily with simple stitches and a variety of crochet projects. Yarnspirations.
