Thanks for popping in today to see my second infinity scarf in the making. As promised, I finished the pattern and tutorial for the scarf! Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments on the scarf. This is the first tutorial and pattern I have made so bear with me.
I was going to make a tutorial with just a swatch of yarn but decided I might as well make the next full scarf. I also re-named the infinity scarf to the Never-ending Scarf to give it a little different twist.
So here is the pattern and tutorial:
Note: all stitches are in USA terms.
If you are used to UK terms then double crochet (dc)= treble crochet (tr)
- 2 Skeins of Lion Brand Amazing Yarn. You will need one more skein if you want a longer length/circumference. Each skein is 147 yd/135m long so adjust accordingly if you use a different type of yarn.
- Hook: Size J/5.50MM
Row 1: In the sixth chain from the hook do 3double crochet, chain 2, 1 double crochet (3dc, ch2, 1dc) in the same chain
*Skip 4 chain spaces and then do another (3dc, ch2, 1dc). Repeat from * until you have 5 "clusters" of (3dc, ch2, 1dc) leaving 3 chains at the end.
Ending row 1: when you have 3 chains left, do 1 dc in the last chain
Chain 3 and turn over and start the second row, (3dc, ch2, 1dc) in each chain 2 space ending with 1 dc in the turning chain at the end.
Repeat row 2 until you reach 56inches in length (142cm). If you want a longer length make more mores (maybe 64 inches/ 162cm). Using the Lion Brand Amazing Yarn, exactly 2 skeins were used to reach the length of approximately 56 inches.

I have not yet perfected connecting the two ends together to make the continuous scarf. Tomorrow I hope to post a nice method for doing this. For my first scarf, I connected the ends by trying to continue the pattern but had some difficulty making this happen. You can use a slip stitch to connect the ends with a seam, but I am not sure if this is the best method. Check back tomorrow for a better connection (hopefully!). Here is a little collage of the first one (color Arcadia).
Have a fabulous start to your weekend tomorrow,
