Crochet Infinity Scarf Patterns
Learn how to crochet scarves for beginners, right here! These crochet scarves are so easy and stylish that you will want to work up every single pattern we give you. This list is specifically for crochet infinity scarves, which are the most stylish winter accessories you can find. There are so many different ways to wear your crochet infinity scarf- you just have to take an hour to work it up first.
Stick with one color and a medium or bulky weight yarn and work up a cozy pattern like the Mossy Infinity Scarf or the Periwinkle Infinity Scarf (pictured), or add in multiple colors to your work and work up something like the Color Blocked Crochet Scarf. Using multiple colors is a great way to show school or team spirit. However, you choose to crochet your scarf, make sure to crochet it long enough to double around your neck and keep you extra warm and extra cozy.

A solid shade and a slightly airy look make this infinity scarf a luxurious dream to make.

Simple Crochet Scarf Patterns
Work up any one of these quick and easy crochet scarves if you're not into the infinity trend.

It's amazing how simple it is to work up one of these crochet scarves that can pull together any outfit for a special date night, another day at work, or drinks with friends.
These crochet scarves differ from infinity scarves in that they aren't seamed at the ends to form a loop. Because of this, you can style your crochet scarves however you want. Use one solid color to create an everyday accessory, or add multiple colors to brighten up your look. You can even add fringe to the ends for a fun on-trend look.

BONUS! How to Block a Crochet Scarf
Now that you're done with your work, you're probably wondering how to care for your crochet project. Should you wash it? How? Well, for the most part, unless your yarn labels specifically say hand wash, you should be able to machine wash your work to clean it. But before you go about wearing your new design, you'll want to block your work to make sure it isn't curling or uneven. You can either wet block, cold block or dry block, and you can find specific information at our tutorial on how to block a crochet pattern, but the basics are the same:
- For wash blocking only, wash your project first.
- Spread out your project either on a bed, some towels, a rug or a blocking board.
- Work around the project and, using rust-proof pins, pin your project in place.
- Make sure the pinned project reflects how you want your work to end up looking: keep your edges straight!
- If wash blocking, let dry completely. If dry blocking, use a steamer or iron around your work to relax and set your work. If cold blocking, mist your project with a spray bottle until your work is wet.
