Do you crochet? I love to crochet when I can find the time and I made a lot of these scarves for gifts at Christmas. It looks a little more complicated than single stitch or double stitch scarves but it’s just as easy. This scarf features the half double crochet (hdc) stitch and is light enough to wear on cool fall days or warm winter days. It’s an infinity scarf (circle scarf) and it is long enough to wrap around 2 times – maybe even three if you like a tighter fit.
I don’t know what I would do without YouTube. There are so many crochet tutorials there that I don’t think I’ll ever need to purchase a stitch book again. The following video is a quick demonstration on how to create the half double crochet stitch.
Here’s the pattern to my light weight infinity scarf:
I used super soft alpaca wool- medium weight and a size I crochet hook.
Row 1: Chain 154. Use a slip stitch to connect your last chain to your first. Chain two (counts as first stitch.)
Row 2: Half-Double Crochet (hdc) in the next stitch. Skip the next stitch. Repeat until you have worked your way around to the two single chains. Use a slip stitch to adjoin and chain two to form the first stitch in row three.
Repeat repeat repeat for eleven more rows. Chain 1. Turn. Single chain all around the circle. Close and tie off.
Obviously I am not the world’s best pattern author but with a scarf this simple – it’s not really necessary. I’m pretty good with a hook though so if you do have questions – post them and I will be happy to assist. Now get going and make that scarf! If you get started now – in a few short hours you’ll have a gorgeous accessory to wear tomorrow.
