Easy Velvet Crochet Infinity Scarf
Ok, now on to the real reason I’m writing today which is to share the Easy Velvet Crochet Infinity Scarf ;). While I was in bed recovering from my surgery last month I did a lot of crocheting. My daughter wanted a new hat and scarf for “snow day” at school which you bet I made for her. Once those were done, I was dying to work with the some of the new buttery soft and luscious velvet yarns for an accessory. I decided to make an infinity scarf because I selfishly wanted a new one for myself hehe.

With these types of very textured yarns, in this case a velvet yarn, I find that simpler stitch patterns are better. That’s great for my beginners and those who want easy projects with no counting or complicated patterns.
- 2 balls of velvet yarn, I used Hobby Lobby because of the color. This Bernat Velvet has great colors too and works up nicely. Notice it suggests a 6.5 mm hook instead of 9mm on the hobby lobby package. The ball is much larger, so 1 ball may work but I would get 2 to be safe. LionBrand has velvet yarn now too.
- crochet hook recommended from package (mine was M or 9mm) like this, or this if you like inline hooks.
- yarn needle for weaving in ends
- Starting with a slip knot create a foundation measuring approximately 48 inches. For me, it was around my neck and down to my belly button. The green version is 70 inches long. Make adjustments as desired, if your chain is longer than 48 inches, you will need 3 balls of yarn.
- Connect foundation chain to create a ring. Make sure foundation chain is straight and insert hook into the front of the first foundation chain and make a slip knot.
- Chain 2, double crochet (dc) in first foundation chain after the chain 2 and place 1 dc per foundation chain until you finish the first round.
- Slip stitch to the top of the original ch 2, ch 1 and place 1 single crochet (sc) in every dc all the way around. When you come back to the beginning, slip stitch (sl st) and ch 2 to do step 3 again. Then repeat step 4 until you have 13 rows (end with dc round) and scarf reaches 9 inches wide. Green version is 9 rows.
- Weave in all ends. With the hobby lobby yarn, make sure you leave a long enough (at least 6-8 inches to weave in). The yarn does fray on the cut ends so it needs to be woven in well. Congrats! You did it! You made your own infinity scarf!
