Stormy Waters Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hello friends! I don’t know what it is about the fall weather but it always seems to bring about a new crochet infinity scarf pattern, or two or three. 

Stormy Waters Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern - FREE

I must admit, I’m pretty excited about this pattern! I’ve made 3 already in a pretty short period of time, and I really think you are going to love this new design! The Stormy Waters crochet infinity scarf uses the beautiful Lion Brand Landscape yarn, another great substitute would be the Red Heart Unforgettable, but this particular scarf style really does shine beautifully with the suggested yarns.

That being said, you can use whatever yarn type you like, you would just want to adjust your hook size accordingly for the type of yarn you are using.

Not only will the Stormy Waters Crochet Infinity Scarf be the perfect accessory addition, but it is totally FREE along with a full video tutorial for any crochet level!

One quick announcement before moving on with the pattern! A new exciting giveaway will be announced next week!

And now, for the…

Stormy Waters Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern



  • Yarn- I used Lion Brand Landscapes. Another similar would be Red Heart Unforgettable. (1 skein of Landscapes makes approximately 26” scarf. 2 skeins were used in photos which made it 52”) You can use a different yarn but you will want to adjust your hook size accordingly.
  • J hook- 6mm
  • Stitch marker (optional)
  • Blunt needle
  • Scissors

Techniques & Terms

  • Hdc – Half double crochet
  • Sc – Single crochet.
  • Fpdc – Front post double crochet. (Yarn over, insert hook in, from front, around and back through to front of double crochet from previous row. Yarn over, pull hook through stitch, yarn over pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull through last 2 loops on hook.) Example of fpdc below.
  • Sl st- Slip stitch
  • Ch – chain

Fpdc Diagram:

How to stitch a front post double crochet - fpdc

After step 3 in the diagram above, you will complete a regular double crochet.


[Based on 21 chain pattern below, each row will end with 20 stitches. Width of scarf is approximately 5.5”]

  1. Begin by chaining 21 – (For wider scarf, add chains to odd number)
  2. Work hdc into 2nd ch from hook and each chain to end. (To work this row with a seamless foundation giving a nicer finish, see this VIDEO)
  3. Ch 3, skip 1st 2 st, work 3 dc into 3rd st, *skip next 2 st, 3 dc into next st* Repeat ** until you have 2 st left at end of row. Skip 1 st, 1 dc into last st.
  4. Ch 2, work 1 sc into 1st st, fpdc around 1st dc in 1st set of 3 dc from previous row, sc into next dc, fpdc around 3rd dc in set. *fpdc around 1st dc of 2nd set of 3 dc from previous row, sc into next dc, fpdc around 3rd dc* Repeat ** for each set of 3 dc from previous round, then work 1 sc into top of the 3rd chain at end.

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until you have worked your scarf to the length you desire, ending with row 4, then proceed to row 5.

  1. Ch 1, hdc into 1st st and every stitch to end, finish off but leave approx. 8-10” tail if making an infinity.

Optional finish:

If you wish to leave as a regular scarf, you can finish off in row 5 without leaving a tail.

If making an infinity, you can use the tail to stitch back and forth on each end to close your 2 ends together, OR you can work my totally invisible granny square join method! It doesn’t take any longer and you will have a beautiful flat/flush seam that will be difficult to see =)
