Aaahhh!!! My first pattern! This is my first pattern! I may be a bit excited. Just a bit.

So, it’s winter time and I knew that I wanted to make a scarf but didn’t know where to begin. At the same time that this is going on in my head, I was out and about with family and friends. One of them had asked if I could crochet an infinity scarf for her and I was like… yes! This was happening at the right place at the right time. As a result, we ended the day by going to Michaels and she purchased the yarn for her scarf.

So many yarn to choose from!

She chose the Caron Cakes in the Buttercream colorway because the yarn will change colors on its own. To read more about the yarn, check out my post Yarn 101: Caron Cakes. The variegated yarn works beautifully with the scarf and almost changes colors and the end of a row. I used two Caron Cakes to make this scarf. But, if you want to make this for a child or work fewer rows and make it into a cowl, then you only need one Caron Cake.

I have the yarn and I know the type of project (infinity scarf) it should be, now all I need is the pattern. That’s all? Yep, that’s all. Oh boy!

I have the yarn… now to choose the stitch

I looked through my 500 Crochet Stitches: The Ultimate Crochet Stitch Bible that I purchased on Amazon and had a hard time choosing which stitch or stitches to use for the infinity scarf. But, in the end, I chose the Basket stitch since it used a variety of stitches and thought that it would be something that my friend would like.

That’s what I kept in mind when figuring out what the scarf would look like… if this scarf was in a store, would my friend purchase it? I think so.

The Basket stitch is a multiple of 6 stitches plus 5 stitches. So, the pattern for the Cozy Basket Infinity Scarf can easily be changed to fit a child by making the width smaller. Or it can be easily adapted to create a throw by making the width larger.

You would just have to chain X amount of stitches that is a multiple of 6 stitches until you almost reach your desired length and then add 5 stitches.

I hope you enjoy making this scarf just as much I did!!!

Stitch explanation:

Double V stitch – [2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in same stitch

Ch 41

Row 1 – In 5th ch from hook, work a V st, *sk 2 ch, V st into next ch; rep from * until the last 2 ch, sk 1 ch, 1 dc into the last ch. Turn.

Row 2 – Ch 3, sk 2 st, work a Dbl V st into ch sp of V st, *ch 1, sk next V st, Dbl V st in ch sp; rep from * to last ch sp, with loop of the last dc of Dbl V st work a dc in top of tch. Turn.

Row 3 – Ch 3, V st in each ch sp to end, 1 dc in top of tch. Turn.

Row 4 – Ch 3, 1 dc into 1st st, *ch 1, sk next V st, Dbl V st into ch sp; rep from * until 1 V st left, ch 1, sk V st, 2 dc into top of tch. Turn.

Row 5 – Repeat Row 3

Repeat Rows 2 through 5 over and over until you reach the double of the desired length for your scarf (ending in Row 5). This scarf measures 87” unseamed. Fold the scarf in half and line up of the stitches of both ends to seam the ends using the whip stitch.


Using 18” – 24” yarn, thread your darning needle. Starting on end A, insert the darning needle through the two loops of the first stitch and then the two loops of the first stitch of end B. Then insert the darning needle through the two loops of the second stitch of end A and then through the second stitch of end B.

Repeat this process until you reach the end.

Once you finished seaming the two ends together, work the whip stitch through the last stitch on both ends leaving a loop so that you can insert the darning needle to create the knot to fasten off. Repeat once more and snip off the yarn leaving 6” – 8” tail.

Weave in your ends. Turn the scarf inside out.

Once the scarf was finished, I blocked it using the blocking mat and pins and it was so cozy. Perfect for this time of the year. If it’s cold outside but not so bad, it looks great when it’s wrapped around your neck two times. If it’s really cold out, you can wrap around your neck three times and still look great.

You can crochet this pretty fast depending how much time you spend crocheting each day. In other words, I was able to crochet the scarf in almost a week.
