A few months ago I got a bunch of yarn on clearance at Jo-Ann’s. I picked up a skein of Bernat Mosaic in Daydream and had been staring at it for a few months figuring out what to do with it. It’s very pretty with yellows, pinks, purples, greens and blues. I thought the perfect one skein project would be a simple infinity scarf. Plus, it goes perfect with a purple shirt I have 🙂
Below I have the pattern with a fun little stitch for you all to try out. It’s called a herringbone double crochet. It’s really easy once you get the hang of it. In fact, it’s just a simple variation on the double crochet. It get’s it name herringbone because of the way it slants to the side. If you were to turn at the end of each round you would get the herringbone effect but I chose not to. I’ll warn you, if you’ve been crocheting a while it will feel a bit goofy at first (hard to break old habits I guess!) but it will start to flow after a few stitches.
To get the look my scarf has I suggest using a variegated or self-striping yarn such as the Mosaic I used.
Here’s the pattern! Hope you like it!

Worsted weight yarn (or any yarn)
- For my sample I used Bernat Mosaic. Since the yarn has been discontinued. Red Heart Unforgettable is a great substitute and it comes in some amazing colors!
H hook (or any hook appropriate for your yarn)
Ch = chain
St = stitch
Ss = slip stitch
Herr dc = herringbone double crochet
Gauge is not important to this project.
You may use any weight yarn with any size hook appropriate for your yarn.
I made mine about 2 yards in circumference and 5” wide but you can adjust this however you’d like.
- Please read all instructions before beginning.
- This scarf is worked in the rounds, you will join with a ss to the first st of the round. The ch 2 will not count as a st.
Herringbone Double Crochet (herr dc): Yo, insert hook into st indicated, yo, pull through st AND 1st loop on hook, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo pull through last 2 loops.
Start by chaining any number of chains. This can be any length. I made mine about 2 yards long (I measure a yard from my nose to the tip on my outstretched hand). Being careful not to twist, join to the first ch.
Round 1 – Ch 2 (does not count as a st), herr dc in every ch around, join.
Round 2 – Ch 2, herr dc in every st around, join.
Repeat round 2 until your scarf measures your desired width (or until you run out of yarn).
I had just enough yarn to ss all the way around. I think it finished it off nicely it’s but not needed.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Easy Peasy Beautiful Scarf! I hope I have increased you crochet knowledge!
Here are a couple scarves my lovely testers made 🙂
This one is by Johanna of Needle Hook & Hand. She created the stripes by changing colors ever 2 rounds.
