This infinity scarf has such an elegant and tidy feel! It uses a delicate petal or shell-like stitch for most of the body, and then is finished off with a straight, simple border. I think it gives it a very polished effect. This would be beautiful in any yarn, but is especially impressive with a smooth and high-sheen yarn like Caron Simply Soft. It shows off all the delicate details! For my sample scarf I used Caron Simply Soft in Bone. I love how it turned out!

– Size 4/ Medium Weight Yarn (I used almost 2 skeins of Caron Simply Soft in Bone)
– US H/5.00 mm Crochet Hook
– Yarn needle for weaving in ends
1 square inch = 1 stitch “cluster” or “petal”
(sc) single crochet
(hdc) half double crochet
(dc) double crochet
(sl st) slip stitch
Row 1: 3 dc in the 4th ch from the hook. *Skip 3 chains. 1 sc in the next chain. Chain 3. 2 dc in the same stitch.* Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Complete the row with a sc in the last stitch.
Row 2: Ch 4. Turn. 3 dc in the first chain of the chain 4. *Sc in the top of the chain space. Ch 3. 3 dc in the same ch space.* Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Complete the row with a sc in the chain space at the end of the row.
Row 3-99: Repeat row 2.
Row 100: Ch 3. Turn. 3 hdc into sc (same stitch that the ch 3 comes out of). *Sc into the top of the ch 3 space. 3 hdc into the dc that lands in the center of the “v” shape created by the last row.* Repeat from * to * across. Complete the row with a sc in the last ch 4 space. Do not fasten off.
Note: At this point my project was 52 inches long and 9 inches tall.
Connecting the ends together:
Fold the two ends of the scarf together with the wrong side facing out. Sc the two ends together. Turn right side out.
Row 1 of the border on one edge: (note: right side should be facing you) Ch 1. Sc evenly around. I did about 4 sc per 2 rows or 4 sc per inch. I had 200 stitches around. Join to the first sc with a sl st.
Row 2: Ch 1. Hdc in the same stitch and around. Join to the first hdc with a sl st. (200)
Row 3: Repeat row 2.
Row 4: You may notice your work curling a bit at this point. So, to prevent the curling, for this last row we will turn our work around and crochet back in the opposite direction. After turning, ch 1. Hdc in the same stitch and around. Join to the first hdc with a sl st. Fasten off and weave in ends. (200)
Rows 1-4 of the border of the second edge: With the right side of your work facing you, join your yarn to the opposite edge of your work, at the seam where you joined your two scarf ends together. Repeat the same 4 steps for the first edge. Fasten off and weave in ends (200)
