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.
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.
Beginner Crochet Scarf Pattern
This pattern is perfect if you are a new crocheter. It works up quickly. If you can crochet the chain stitch and single crochet, you are ready to work this pattern.

Handmade Crochet Gift
I have made many of these as gifts for family and friends. The lightweight colorful scarf is a pretty accessory that they wear throughout the year.
Directions: Scrappy Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
Beginner. If you can chain stitch 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)
CH = Chain
SK = Skip
SP = Space
ST = Stitch
[ ] = Repeat Between
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.
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.
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 3 – 84

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.
Weave in yarn ends and remove the excess.
