It may be summer, but infinity scarves are a hot crochet trend right now. If you love crochet, they are most definitely the thing to be making, and this handy guide will tell you everything that you need to know to get started…
An infinity scarf is a large, closed loop that can be worn in a variety of stylish ways. Wear it loose in the summer or wrap it around twice for winter warmth. You can even pull it over your head as a hood, or drape it around your shoulders as a snug shawl or capelet.
Infinity scarves are perfect weekend projects and make great gifts for friends and family. We think that everyone is going to want one this Christmas, so now might be a good time to start crocheting!
See some different examples of crochet infinity scarves and learn more about them in our video:
If you’ve been inspired to have a go, it’s SO straightforward to get started. The crochet patterns for all of the scarves shown here and in the video can be found in the new PDF eBook Crochet Infinity Scarves, which can be downloaded from Stitch Craft Create to view instantly. The eBook includes 8 different infinity scarf patterns that, as you can see from the video, are extremely diverse and can be easily adapted by changing the yarn and hook size used and the colours chosen.
All you need is a pattern, some yarn and a crochet hook. The designs in Crochet Infinity Scarves are all really quick and simple, so you don’t need to be an expert to make them. I love the chunky houndstooth design and Cyn has already started crocheting the lacy infinity scarf, which is more suitable for the warmer weather.
