Sierra Infinity Scarf Cowl Free Easy Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite easy accessories to make and wear as it starts to get chilly is and infinity scarf or cowl. Not only are they extremely easy to make they go with almost anything. It’s also a great way to use up any fun yarn you may only have one or two balls of. One of the first patterns I published to my site was the Infinity Scarf (creative name I know). I always loved this simple pattern but I used an old yarn that has been discontinued.

I decided to revamp this pattern when We Crochet brought back some new and old favorites in their Felici yarn. This yarn is so fun because it’s self striping. I used the colorway Punch Bug in the worsted weight for the larger sample but I wanted to write this pattern so you could use any yarn and appropriate hook.

For my second sample I used the same Felici yarn in sock weight dyed by me! I loved the yarn so much after playing around I decided to dye up the Sierra Collection.

This cowl is worked in continuous rounds. You can adjust the size by chaining any number to start.


Gauge is not critical for this project. 


Ch = chain

St(s) = stitch(es)

H-dc= herringbone double crochet

Hdc = hdc

Sc = single crochet

Special Stitches

Herringbone Double Crochet (H-dc): Yarn over, insert hook in the stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through the st and the 1st loop on the hook, yarn over, pull through 1 loop, yarn over, pull through last 2 remaining loops.


Start by chaining any number of chains. This can be any length. I made sample 1 two yards long (I measure a yard from my nose to the tip on my outstretched hand). I made sample 2 about 22” long. Being careful not to twist, join to the first ch.

Round 1: Ch 1, H-dc in each ch around, do NOT join.

Round 2: H-dc in the 1st st and each st around, do NOT join. 

Repeat round 2 to desired width or until you run out of yarn.

To finish, hdc in the next 2, sc in the next 2, slip st in the next. 

Fasten off, block, weave in ends. Easy peasy, cowl done!
