In Australia, right now it’s Autumn. We are starting to feel a little chill in the air, and see a slow change in the leaves on the trees.
As soon as I start feeling that little change, I am ready to drag out my warm jackets, my jeans, comfy boots….bring on the cool weather, I say!
So to start setting that winter season scene, I felt the need to start some cold months snuggly crochet. The Aurora Infinity Scarf is perfect for new crocheters, or a quick work up for seasoned crocheters. The primary stitch used is the double crochet. The infinity style is crocheted up in a long column, and then crocheted (not stitched) together using a simple slip stitch technique. (If you need a refresher on double crochet- click here for the tutorial.)
If you learn best with the visual of a video tutorial- click below- I’ve got you covered.
Let’s get started!
The materials required are:
L-11/8mm crochet hook
Approximately 150m/164 yards of super bulky/ super chunky yarn
For the Aurora Infinity Scarf pictured, I used LionBrand Hometown USA Cambridge Tweed yarn, and required 2 skeins.
The pattern uses US Crochet terms. The abbreviations used in the pattern are as follows:
dc= double crochet
sl st= slip stitch
flo= front loop only
The gauge or tension in the Aurora Infinity Scarf is 4 rows of 9 double crochet stitches in a 4×4 in/ 10x10cm swatch.
Step 1. Ch 15.
Step 2. dc in 4th ch from hook- does not count as a stitch. dc in ea chain until end of row (12).
Step 3. ch 3. dc in st directly next to ch sts. dc in ea st for row. (12).
Step 4. repeat Step 3 until desired length is achieved. Ideally the scarf should wrap at least twice
around the neck- comfortably- without you feeling strangled by the scarf.
Step 5. To join ends together, sl st flo of dc st to ch foundation row from beginning of scarf. Line up ends together, matching last row dc with initial ch st from beginning of scarf.
Step 6. Hook should be sitting in last dc completed for last row. Sl st into first ch from beginning end of scarf, joining the ends together.
Once ends are joined, it should resemble the below:
Sew the ends in. Now your very own Aurora Infinity Scarf is complete!
I hope you have enjoyed making your own cosy infinity scarf. I would love to see your finished makes- please tag @thetwistingtwine on Instagram so I can check out your work.
As always- Happy Crocheting!
