The Kimberly Scarf // Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern

This infinity scarf pattern 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.

The Yarn

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
– Scissors

1 square inch = 1 stitch “cluster” or “petal”

(ch) chain
(sc) single crochet
(hdc) half double crochet
(dc) double crochet
(sl st) slip stitch

Chain 40.

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)

  1. I absolutely love this pattern and have the perfect yarn waiting in my stash! I recently purchased some gorgeous silk-alpaca (here in Norway) with the a lovely sheen and this will really show off the beauty and softness of the yarn. I bought it in many colors and can’t wait to get started. Thank you so much for sharing this free pattern – I adore it! Julia / happy me

      1. Before connecting the edges, this makes a rectangle, correct? I had to restart because within 4 rows, I added a petal.

  2. What a gorgeous scarf! A friend just gave me her mother’s yarn stash, and in it are several skeins of Caron Simply Soft in teal and royal blue, and I already have the yarn in bone. I need to make items for an upcoming craft fair to raise money for rescued dogs, and I know just what I will make! Thank you so much for the pattern!

  3. Very nice pattern and of course I have yarn to make it now. So I guess as soon as I finish this one project (I do have several going) I think I’ll make this one.

  4. Thank yoy so much for this pattern. I was searching for a scarf pattern to make a gift for my daughter…Kimberly? and so easy to execute.

  5. Thanks for the pattern. Are you supposed to chain 4 and 3 D.C. In 4th ch in all rows? I think I might be doing it wrong!
    Thanks Alice

      1. Is that the same on the entire row of the first row? I’m only asking because you said 2 dc after the chain 3

  6. Thanks for sharing the pattern and showing the steps so clearly- it is beautiful and I can use some of my yarn stash up!!

  7. Thank for such a beautiful pattern. It works up great. I just started the scarf and can’t wait for the finished product.

  8. Love this pattern! I’m relatively new to crochet and therefore unable to know if this stitch has a name to find out how to work into a hat. Does it? I’m on my second skein of yarn and will be completed in length soon – works up quick! This might actually be my first fully completed project – lots of stuff in progress… newbie keener 😂

    1. Hi Christa! So glad you like the pattern! I am sure the stitch has a name, but the pattern I learned it on also did not name it! I keep hoping to come across it so I know too :). I actually have a matching hat pattern in progress. It may not be ready for another month, but if you’d be interested in being one of my testers for the pattern, let me know and that way you would get access sooner than everyone else :).

  9. I was about to go to bed But I must first go to the craft room because I have the perfect yarn! I will post a picture for you when I have finished. Thank you so much for sharibf!!!!

  10. I love this pattern! Made my sister one last winter and working on one now for her best friend using Love Aran with flecks, so pretty. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. Terry

  11. Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous pattern!! I’m bit of a new crocheter, so bear with me…. I’m wondering if you might be able to clarify for me what you meant on row 2 where it says the following? “3 dc in the first chain of the chain 4. ” ? I know what “3 DC in the first chain” means but not sure what you mean by “of the chain 4.” Hope this makes sense? 😳 And thanks a ton in advance for any reply- I know this was 3 years ago you posted this. Hope you’re safe and well! TY

    1. Hi Laura! It is actually quite a long scarf because it is mean to wrap around the neck twice. The full length before joining the edges will be about 53″. At row 38 mine is about 21″ long (top to bottom) and 9″ wide. Hope that helps. Of course you can easily customize it to end at whatever length you prefer. Just stop when you’re ready and jump to instructions for row 100 to finish up with a straight edge.

  12. Hi! I am stuck on the beginning of row 2, I’m not sure what chain space I’m supposed to single crochet into. Is that the top pf the single crochet from the last row?

    1. Hi Lauren, the beginning of each cluster in the previous row is a chain 3. You will place the single crochet, as well as the following stitches around (or in) that chain 3. Does that make sense? Essentially you are crocheting along that left side slope of each stitch cluster (which is where the ch 3 is now that you’ve turned) for the entire row.
