I love the look of the long chunky infinity scarves. I made one out of light weight knit fabric, so it was only a matter of time before I had to crochet one. I love the way it turned out! It’s so soft, warm, and cozy, perfect for chilly weather.
Because you can wear it in so many different ways we have nicknamed it “The Thneed” at our house.
I came up with the pattern, you are welcome to use the pattern to make or sell your own. I do ask that you link back to this post in your listing or if you blog about it. Thanks
If you don’t want to make your own Thneed I will be listing this one in my shop, I would be happy to make you a custom cowl, if you would like.
The pattern is very simple, I really love the look of the simple stitches together.
This pattern is great for a beginner. If you have any questions I am more than happy to answer them. You can leave questions in the comments or e-mail them to me.
Gage for the project isn’t important.
I used 4 skeins of Hometown USA yarn, it is super chunky size 6 yarn, in scarlet.
Hook size K.
Chain 150, join into first chain with a slip stitch. Making a circle, make sure you don’t twist the chain.
Round 1 chain 2, DC into same stitch you joined in. DC into each stitch around. Join with slip stitch into first DC.
Round 2 chain 2, SC into same stitch you joined in. SC into each stitch around. Join with slip stitch into first SC.
Round 3 – 11 repeat round 1 and 2, join with slip stitch into first DC, fasten off and weave in ends.
If you would like to make a smaller cowl you can start with a chain of 100, and follow the pattern from there. To make it larger more like a shawl you can start with a chain of 200.
If you make one I would LOVE to see a photo. You can e-mail me a photo or share them on my Face Book page
If you need a refresher in how to hold your yarn and how to make a basic chain this tutorial will help. If you have questions about how to join the end of a round this tutorial from my friend Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me is great.
