Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying Plaid Week! Today’s pattern is a no-brainer. Even before I thought of doing a whole week of plaid, I knew I needed to make a crochet plaid infinity scarf. After a few sizing adjustments, I got a length and width that I absolutely love. This pattern is easy to change if you prefer your scarves longer or thicker. To make it longer, add extra chains to the foundation in multiples of 6, and to make it wider, work extra rounds.

  1. You are so clever! I made the slouchy cap and though I’ve been crocheting for years, it is the first truly professional looking item I’ve made. Thank you!

  2. I can’t make use of the video for the plaid stitch tutorial at home. Is there a print version of it I can PDF and send to my Kindle? Thanks.

  3. Just finished this scarf and matching hat…Wonderful pattern and so easy! Thank you for giving it to us for free. It’s going to make a fantastic gift.

  4. Love all the plaid patterns. Thank you! I am starting the cowl today but it doesn’t say if single crochet or double crochet stitches. (?) From the complete scarf picture you posted, it looks like single crochet but thought I would check before moving forward.

      1. Thank you so much for the free pattern! How the pattern is written right now it does look like it’s worked in single crochet. DC isn’t mentioned in the pattern just in the abbreviation terms. Your youtube video is very helpful.

          1. I think it would be good to include the plaid stitch instructions. I had no idea what it meant. Just assumed that it meant to alternate colors and I couldn’t figure out if it was a sc or a dc. Had to go to someone else to find out what it was. Now I know.

          2. Yes, this needs to be rewritten. I released this during a week-long plaid week series, the first one (a hat) had detailed instructions, but the subsequent ones did not, which was not a good way to do it. Very sorry for the frustration this caused.

  5. Absolutely love this!!! Thank you so much for sharing! I actually think I am going to work this into a baby blanket for my brothers family. The video was so helpful too!

          1. I wouldn’t be able to give you specifics. Just make a chain that is long enough to be comfortable as a infinity scarf, and then work a few extra until your chain is a multiple of 6.

  6. I’m dying here. =) No time to make them. I definitely will, tho. I just love it. I’m going to make mine just a regular scarf, rather than the infinity. I’m sure it will be just as cute!!!

  7. For the cowl, do you carry the red and black up as you work, or do you end them and join them again?
