This Cozy Winter Infinity Scarf is a pattern I created to be simple and easy to follow. It’s a 2 row repeat; once you understand the pattern you can sit down in front of the tv or listen to an audio book and continue until it’s complete. The yarn used for the one in the main picture is some leftover Yarn Bee Brushworks yarn I had (80% Acrylic/ 20% Alpaca), but you can use any yarn that you choose. The Brushworks yarn is somewhere between a #3 and #4 weight. The pattern is written based on how I made the scarf in the main picture using 4 colors, but you can use any number of colors you like once get the repeat down.
At the end of the pattern, there are pictures of another scarf I made which has different specifications (57″ around, 9″ wide) using sport weight yarn (Alpaca Silk from Hobbii) and a 2.75mm hook. The starting chain for that scarf was 305. I used 4 skeins and switched colors once I used each one so no yarn would be wasted. Sometimes that meant switching colors in the middle of the row. The rest of the pattern is the same. The pattern can be adapted any way you like to your desired measurements.
