Pink Never-ending Scarf (Infinity Scarf)


I hope you had a nice weekend. We had a rainy day over the weekend and I loved every minute of it. The rainy day was perfect for crocheting and making progress on handmade Christmas presents.
I finished the Mesa colored one which you saw in my last post (on the right in the photo) and also made one in pink. I love pink things, but it just happens to be October and Breast Cancer awareness month, so I thought this pink scarf is the perfect thing to highlight this month.

 The pink yarn is Alpaca Love by Stitch Nation. I was able to get each skein for $3 on clearance at A.C. Moore. I used a little over 2 skeins, hopefully I can get two more skeins to make a second one in the same color. The yarn is 80% Wool and 20% Alpaca. The yarn feels nice and will be very warm to winter weather (of course not where I live in FL, but this will be perfect for up north).
Here it is worn 5 different ways:

I also want to show you the connect-as-you-go finishing method to making the scarf a continuous circle.
I started off a little "off" which is that extra little flab on the right side

You can see where the "slip stitch" occurred to connect the two
I tried to pull the two apart and take a photo at the same time so you could see the connections a little bit better but apparently my hand shakes too much and all the photos were blurry. So this is the best I could do after many attempts.
I think I finally have a good grasp on connecting the ends using a connect-as-you-go method. I am working on another one right now and will try to get some better photos. Maybe J will be able to help me get some good shots :)

Have a great start to your week and if you are in Canada -- Happy Thanksgiving!
xoxo Susan


  1. I loved the weekend myself, well at least Sunday when I could be cozy and at home. I drove to and from Orlando in that horrible weather on Saturday for a swim meet. But Sunday was perfect. Love the scarves you are doing a fantastic job.

  2. Wow - you are like a scarf factory at the moment!
    I hadn't realised you could wear it so many ways - that looks great, I particularly like the double looped one (top left). Another thing to add to the (increaingly long) list of things I want to make....!

  3. I love it! I wonder how it would look if your twisted it before you joined, mobius-style? I think I'm going to have to try one!

  4. Hi Mary Margaret,
    I was thinking of doing that with the last two scarves, and now that you mentioned it too I am definitely going to do it for the one I am making right now!
    Thanks xo

  5. Love it! Great idea! Love seeing another florida crocheter.

  6. Hello! new reader here. love the scarves. curious if you ever finished a tutorial on the Anthropologie inspired pullover? I believe you called it the "starry day sweater." I would love to make one and give you tons of credit after i finish for all your hard work in figuring out. thanks! crochet love!

  7. Hi Susan! I saw your neverending scarf in Diane's office and loved it! Had to look it up on the blog and I started one yesterday. I will be ready to finish it this evening and wondered if you - or anyone - tried the twist before connecting. If so, did this work out?

  8. Just thought I'd write how I connected the ends, if it makes sense.
    ch2 and sl st into the end like you start out.
    then when I do the 3dc, before I YO the last time, I put it through one of the chains in the 4ch spaces, and then finish the stitch. ch1, sl st in the hole like you do, and repeat. It ends up looking more like the pattern continues, but it does make a little ridge. I"ll try to get a picture. Love the pattern!!

  9. oh and if you go back down the line and sew the tops of the dcs together a bit more with just a whipstitch, it looks a lot better if you're going to try the connection the way I did it.
