Say hello to our Colorful Easy Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern. This easy crochet scarf is a great beginner project using basic crochet stitches. If you are a beginner eager to dive into your first project, this pattern promises both comfort and style.

Yet, it is one of those quick and fun crochet projects to make even if you are a seasoned crocheter. I know I enjoyed crocheting this piece. As I added each color, I loved this one even more.

This double crochet scarf is a great project to make when you want to relax and just work on something easy.  

This charming scarf not only boasts vibrant hues but also promises simplicity in every stitch. With just four yarn colors – Surf, Ambrosia, Peninsula, and Snow – you’ll be wrapped in gorgeous colors and comfort. Measuring a generous 13 inches wide, this scarf isn’t just for neck warmth; it doubles effortlessly as a hood, making it ideal for those chilly days when you want to stay snug and stylish.

Yet, at the same time, the combination of four yarn colors makes it the perfect accessory to wear on a lakeside cabin retreat. When this is hanging on the hook of our coat rack, it takes on the charm of your favorite vacation spot. However, if you prefer neutral colors, this will look lovely in a combination of neutral hues.

I used quite a large crochet hook for this pattern as I wanted to stitch to have an open and airy look and feel. It’s an easy way to achieve this and keeping the crochet pattern very basic and simple.

Why Crochet Infinity Scarves?

Before we unravel the double crochet stitches, let’s talk about why I love an infinity scarf. These versatile accessories are more than just neck warmers, they’re fashion statements. Here’s why I adore them:

Endless Styling Possibilities: Loop it once for a relaxed drape or double it up for extra warmth. Bring this up over the head and wrap around the neck for the hooded cowl look. An infinity scarf effortlessly elevates any outfit.

One Stitch: If you’re new to crochet, an infinity scarf is the perfect starting point. You’ll master a single stitch (or a few simple ones), creating a beautiful piece that’s both practical and chic.

Year-Round Appeal: Lightweight cotton yarn for spring, cozy wool for winter; there’s an infinity scarf for every season. Plus, they make great gifts.

Wear This Oversized Infinity Scarf Like a Snood Scarf

An oversized infinity scarf crochet pattern that is perfect for making a scarf so large it will keep you bundled and warm through the chilliest of weather. While this doesn’t have a hood section, it is large enough to loop over the head and around the neck.

A snood scarf is tubular, much like a large cowl or a scarf. It can be like an infinity scarf. A looped scarf that sits around the neck, but a snood sits higher on the neck and often acts as a hood. An infinity scarf could technically work like a snood.

According to Byrdie, A snood scarf is essentially a tubular scarf, resembling either a sizable cowl or a scarf equipped with a hood. While it shares some features with an infinity scarf, a looped scarf worn around the neck, a snood typically sits higher on the neck and doubles as a hood.

Skill Level

Beginner Crocheter Friendly.

You should be able to work the Double Crochet stitch.


13 X 60 inches

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.


10 stitches and 8 rows every 4 inches.


The pattern is worked in rows and then joined to become an infinity scarf.

This pattern is written in US Crochet Terms.

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 then joined.

When changing yarn colors; end of row, leaving a 12–16-inch yarn tail of each yarn color. DO NOT weave in yarn ends until after you have joined the infinity scarf together. These will be used to join the scarf and by using the yarn color that matches each section makes the join a bit more invisible.

Optionally, you can forget joining and keep this as a gorgeous regular scarf.

When crocheting the beginning chain stitches, it can be hard to work starting chains with this many stitches and not lose track. Therefore, especially if you are a beginner crocheter, you may want to use stitch markers every 10 or 50 stitches. They are a great way to keep track of crochet stitches. While this project uses simple stitches for the stitch pattern, the long starting chain can be a bit hard to count. However, because this pattern does not use any special combination of stitch counts to start, it is still easy.

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 the whip stitch using the yarn needle and the long strands of yarn that were left from the color changes.

Align the ends of the scarf. Starting where you ended your last stitch, insert the yarn needle in the stitch directly across. Bring the yarn needle back through the loop on the other side. Continue doing this until you have this color joined. Then using a matching strand from the next color section, continue working through the stitches. Repeat this for the next two colors until you reach the end.


After joining each color section of the scarf, use your yarn needle to weave in the extra loose ends that were not used to join the scarf. Weave the yarn back and forth between the stitches at least 3-5 times. Trim off any excess yarn.
