Blue infinity scarf: A Forever 21 knock-off, shhh!

Edit: This pattern's popularity has proven greater than I ever dreamed. I have posted a pattern and video in this MASTER POST! :D All questions will also be answered in that post, so please check there before asking!

Hi there everyone! I hope you've had a happy holiday and are looking forward to a fun New Year's celebration! Given my circumstances, I won't be posting Christmas gift photos for a while yet, but today I will be showing you the infinity scarf I made during final to de-stress during study breaks.

Floofy hair!

So the inspiration behind this one came from this Forever 21 scarf. I saw the scarf in the store and loved it, but being the stingy stitcher that I am, the first thought that jumped into my head was, "I could make that!" And I did! If you look closely at the pattern, you can probably figure it out for yourself as well...it was quite simple. And is anyone else secretly amused that F21 called it a knit scarf?

Here's a shot of the scarf in its entirety. It's probably the most true to color. I have start remembering to take pictures in natural light!

For those who are curious, I used a little less than a skein of Caron Simply Soft Berry Blue and (I think) a J hook. Here is a shot of the stitch pattern, since I think it's upside down in the product shot.

If you'd rather not do the work of figuring it out, here's the pattern.

Ch multiple of three plus 2. Ch 4 (counts as beg tr). *Sk 1 st, tr in each of next 2 sts. Dc around the 2 trs into the previously skipped st. Rep from * until one st remains. Tr in last st.

For clarification, when you are doing the first row, your first actual tr should be going into the 7th chain from the hook.

And there you have it! Start each row with the ch-4, then simply FO when the scarf is long enough and whipstitch the ends together (or whatever joining method you prefer). And you have your pretty, lacy yet warm infinity scarf!

Edit: So clearly my sketchy explanatory skills are just as bad as I suspected they were. I actually put some thought into this and have posted an actual pattern. Happy crocheting!

Happy crocheting!

  2. This is a great stitch! good job, love the color!! popping by from fireflies & jelly beans!

  3. Awesome scarf. What a cool stitch. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love this! I just found your blog through a search for "crochet infinity scarf" I will definitely be trying this out and will send you a pic!


  5. can you post a more detailed pattern instruction on this? i really love what you did here and would love to make it myself. THank you

  6. OMG i love your scarf. i tried the pattern but I'm finding it hard to follow. skip 1 stitch, then do tr in the next 2 and then go back to the first stitch and do a double crochet. for some reason mine looks nothing like urs :(!!!!! ur twists looks a lot more tighter? while mine are loose and fat any pointers???

  7. I love this as well - so cute! Unfortunately, I am also a little confused by the instructions. Could you post a more detailed version? Thanks!!

  8. Hi there, thanks so much for the tutorial! I was wondering how much yarn you used? Is this one skein or two? more? and what kind of yarn did you use?

  9. I love my scarf so far but can you tell me about how long to make it?

  10. I love your scarf. I kept getting confused between the triple and double crochet so I changed it to all double crochet. It worked out perfect. Thank you for the idea.

  11. I LOVE this knockoff pattern! Hi Annie! My name is Melissa and I'm the editor for FaveCrafts.com. I'd love to publish this project on our site (the video or the pattern...either one works for me)...I think our readers would love it! You can contact me at mconner@primecp.com for more information! I look forward to hearing from you :)

  12. Annie - how long did you stitch your scarf - thats all i need to finish mine! I want to put on twice around my neck like yours!

    "Dimensions (relaxed): 8 inches wide and 56 inches long (before joining the ends)
    10 pattern repeats, 57 rows"

  14. Thanks for the pattern,
    I'm just a beginning blogger, but I love to knit and crochet and I LOVE this pattern! I made mine with a chunkier yarn (and therefore made more rows) and it is amazing :) I'm going to put pictures of mine on my blog with a link to yours for the pattern.

    Thanks again!

  15. I just made one for my college student daughter-in black with little silver specks-in about 4-5 hours-it came out great!! making one for myself now - very easy!

  16. Hi Annie!

    You made your scarf beautiful and you look gorgeous in your photos. Crocheted infinity scarf is one of the best patterns of the scarf that keeps warm to the one who wears it. Thanks for sharing this post, Annie!
