Crochet infinity scarf is the next best thing to crochet. You are learning something new while making something beautiful and super useful too.

They look stylish when you wear them and way more complicated to make than they really are.

What is the best crochet stitch for an infinity scarf?
The beauty of crocheting an infinity scarf is that you can literally choose any stitch you wish to use!

Best Yarn To Use For Crochet Infinity Scarf
One thing you have to remember is that infinity scarf is very likely to be very close to your skin on the neck.
Therefore, you need to choose yarn that is going to not only keep you warm, but be comfortable and not irritate your delicate skin on the neck.
Secondly, decide on the finished size and feel of the infinity scarf. Do you want it oversized, thick and chunky or delicate, lacy and light?
For a chunky infinity scarf, opt for worsted weight or bulky yarns like these:
If you prefer a delicate crochet infinity scarf, these yarns would work perfectly:
How many chains do you need for an infinity scarf?
The amount of chains you need for an infinity scarf depends which way you are going to crochet.
Firstly, you can crochet the scarf across the short edge and work up the length of the scarf. After that, you need to crochet or sew the two narrow ends together to create a circular scarf.
In this case, you should aim for a width of 18-20 cm or 7-8 inches. The amount of chains you need to reach this width will depend on the stitch you are using and the thickness of the yarn you have opted for.
You can simply start chaining and measure your starting chain against a ruler to reach the desired width.
Secondly, you can also crochet an infinity scarf across the length or circumference of the scarf. This way, your starting chain will be quite long and require many chain stitches.
The other little disadvantage is that you can’t change the finished length of your scarf. Once you chain the amount of stitches, that’s how long your scarf will be.
