Easy and Quick Scrappy Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

Make this scrappy infinity scarf crochet pattern using your leftover yarn from your other crochet projects. Use this open mesh stitch design to highlight the colors.

Enter the world of DIY with a project that perfectly blends practicality, creativity, and sustainability: the Scrappy Infinity Scarf. This delightful accessory is a testament to the magic that can emerge from leftover yarn, a touch of ingenuity, and a dash of crafting enthusiasm.

Often, I will end up with yarn after I complete a crochet project. It seems there is too much to want to toss the rest in the trash. Yet not enough to make something else. Well, here is an idea for you. The yarn I used today was left over from the Simple Crochet Table Runner Pattern.

Color Block Scarf

Rather than determine a set number of rows for each color of yarn, I let the amount left of the yarn determine the rows. Once I am not able to make another row of the yarn, I just join a new color at the end of the row.

In this age of fast fashion and mass production, there’s a unique charm in crafting something with your own hands. The open weave infinity cowl not only offers a cozy addition to your summer or winter wardrobe but also celebrates the spirit of resourcefulness.

Made using yarn scraps that might otherwise be forgotten, this project transforms odds and ends into a stylish accessory that will keep you snug throughout the season.

Handmade Crochet Gift and Yarn Choices

I have made many of these as great gifts for family and friends. The lightweight colorful scarf is a pretty accessory that they wear throughout the year. it can be made in neutral colors too.

However, a soft yarn would be a great choice for this crochet project. A perfect pattern to use up yarn scraps in different colors. The best thing is that I am using up my yarn stash.

However, if you prefer a thick and bulky crochet cowl, you can use bulky yarn with this pattern. I don’t think it would lay as nicely though.

While this simple pattern uses basic crochet stitches, and the bulky weight yarn would work, I personally don’t think I would go much chunkier than a worsted weight yarn.

A worsted weight yarn is an excellent choice for a cold weather accessory. It’s a beautiful way to stay warm and stylish on cold days. Additionally, you don’t have to use just yarn scraps for this basic infinity scarf. You can use a skein of yarn to make this.

One last idea for you. If you prefer a regular scarf, rather than the cowl, skip the steps at the end to join the ends.

Skill Level

Perfect for Beginner Crocheters. If you can work simple stitches like chain stitches and complete the single crochet stitch, you are ready for this crochet pattern.


20 Single Crochet every 4 inches


7 ½ inches wide X 50 inches long.

This pattern is worked in multiples of 4 + 6. To change the width, increase or decrease the beginning chain stitch count by 4, then add 6 more stitches. Change the length by adding or decreasing the number of rows completed.


Patons Grace number 3 light weight yarn in Cardinal, Lotus, and Ginger. If you are not able to find the yarn locally, you can find it here.

Reminder, this yarn is left over from another crochet project. I will make the guesstimate of how much yarn was left for each color.

Lotus 25 yards

Cardinal 50-75 yards

Ginger 50 yards

Crochet Hook Size H (5.0 MM)

Yarn Needle



CH = Chain

SK = Skip

SP = Space

ST = Stitch

STs= Stitches

[ ] = Repeat Between

Pattern Notes

I used each yarn color until there was not enough to make another row. Then moved to the next color.

This crochet pattern is worked flat and joined with the very last row crocheted.

Turn at the end of each row.

Continue to repeat row 2 until the desired length.

Crochet Pattern Directions

I started with the Lotus When that yarn ran out, I moved to another color and so on until I ran out of the leftover yarn.


Work a foundation chain of 36.

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.

Rows 1 and 2 Lattice Stitch

Rows 3 – 84

Repeat Row 2

Row 85 – Joining the Infinity Cowl

Note: I ended on row 85 as I ran out of yarn. However, you can crochet as many rows you can make it with your leftover yarn, join the infinity scarf together in the last row.

CH 3, SC in the first hole of the opposite end of the scarf. CH 3 go back across to the next hole, SC. [CH 3, go across to the next hole, SC] repeat the rest of the row between [ ]. End with a SC in the last hole.

This is a nice way to work the pattern flat and join at the end. However, it doesn’t even look like you joined it this way. Often, I would join the right sides together using a yarn needle and weaving the yarn through the stitches. However, this method of going back and forth turned out really nice.


Weave in yarn ends and remove the excess.
