Hey there, crochet friends! It’s Katy from KT and the Squid, and in this post I’m excited to walk you through this super easy, beginner-friendly infinity crochet scarf. But before we dive into the project, let’s talk a bit about the star of the show: the yarn.

I recently had the pleasure of trying out Riot DK from King Cole, as I’m proudly one of their ambassadors. Riot is a DK weight blend, consisting of 30% wool and 70% premium acrylic. With a generous 324 yards per skein, it provides ample yardage for various projects. What caught my eye about this yarn is its long striping color changes, which add a delightful touch to any piece.

However, it’s essential to note that this yarn is single-ply and has a slight halo (fuzzy) to it, making frogging (undoing stitches) a bit tricky. So, I advise being cautious and minimizing frogging attempts to avoid frustration.

You can find a King Cole Stockist near you or purchase this yarn from Love Crafts

Now, let’s get into the fun part: crocheting your very own infinity scarf! This project is exceptionally beginner-friendly, as evidenced by my daughter who has only been crocheting a few months picking up the technique within minutes of watching me. So, whether you’re a seasoned crocheter or just starting out, you’ll find this project accessible and enjoyable. And is you’d like to watch a video tutorial of this project I’ve got one for you!

Free Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern


King Cole Riot (or any yarn)

G+/4.5mm hook (or any hook appropriate for your yarn)

Yarn needle



Ch = chain

St = stitch

Hhdc = herringbone half double crochet

Hdc = herringbone double crochet

Sc = single crochet


Gauge is not important to this project.


I made mine about 2 yards in circumference and 5” wide but you can adjust this however you’d like.


Special Stitches

Herringbone Double Crochet (Hdc): 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 1 (does not count as a st), Hhdc in the 1st ch, Hdc in every ch around, do NOT join.

Round 2 – Hdc in every st around, join.

Repeat round 2 until your scarf measures your desired width (or until you run out of yarn).
finished with about 18″ of yarn left.

To taper the ending work 2 Hhdc, 1 sc and a slip st.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

And there you have it—a cozy and stylish infinity scarf, perfect for keeping warm or adding a pop of color to any outfit! Whether you’re crocheting for yourself or gifting to a loved one, this project is sure to delight.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
