Modern Infinity scarf crochet pattern adds a cozy warmth to your wardrobe adding a perfect scarf accent to adorn their favourite coat, sweater or T shirt. EASY TO CROCHET PATTERN using charts and written instructions. The modern design adds a contemporary feel to your wardrobe. I used Malabrigo Sock yarn for the photo’s. You can use most sock or fingerling weight yarns to make it. A great design for men too just replace the lace rows with dc rows instead for a solid effect without the lace.

Designed with sock/fingerling weight yarn so you can wear it in most seasons. The Modern Infinity scarf can also be made in a solid colour, multiple colours on each row, two toned colours, hand painted yarns to suit your wardrobe and style.

I was inspired to design a scarf that had a modern edge and feel to the design with a infinity style scarf you could wear anytime of the year. A lovely merino wool would be great for a fall and winter scarf or change the yarn to a linen or cotton for a lighter weight accent scarf for spring and summer. I chose to use the Malabrigo Sock yarn this time as it is a wonderful and luxurious yarn that is 100% merino wool. The colours are a true enjoyment to crochet with. In the photo’s I used Abril colour way for the purple/blue scarf and the Indecitia colour way for the green/purple/blue/yellow scarf. You can use most sock weight yarns for this design just make sure you make a quick gauge test to see if you need to change your hook size.
