For Christmas this year my mom asked for a “grey-ish infinity scarf”. Now, I’ve made her cute and stylish scarves in the past but I knew this time she was hoping for something warmer and more practical. I still had to find a way to make it fun though. So I went with a bulky yarn, large hook, and simple double crochet. It turned out great! It is soft and warm! I had just enough yarn left in the skein to make a matching hat. She loved it and I decided that should whip out another set and actually get the pattern down to share! This is an easy pattern and works up quickly.

MJ Infinity Scarf and Hat
Foundation DC– Chain 4, *yarn over, insert hook in first chain, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through first loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull through remaining loops*. Yarn over, insert hook into bottom loop of the previous stitch and repeat * to *
SC2TOG-Single Crochet Decrease, I prefer the invisible decrease, which is insert hook up through front loops of next 2 stitches, yarn over, pull through the two front loops, yarn over, pull through remaining 2 loops. A regular decrease or skipping a stitch will work too, I just think they are more noticeable.
DC2TOG- Double Crochet Decrease, The DC invisible decrease is a yarn over, insert hook up through front loops of next 2 stitches, yarn over, pull through the two front loops, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over pull through remaining loops. A regular decrease or skipping a stitch will work too, I just think they are more noticeable.
2DC- Double Crochet Increase, Do 2 DC in same stitch to increase
Loops and Threads Charisma BIG- A full Skein for the Hat and Scarf
For the Scarf- N/15 10mm Hook (one size up from the recommended on the yarn)
For the Hat- L/11 8mm Hook
Needle for weaving in ends
MJ Infinity Scarf
1) Foundation DC 18 (OR ch 20, DC in 3rd from hook and across) ch 2 and turn (18)
2-60) DC across (18) ch 2 and turn
I made my scarf about 10 inches wide and 58 inches long. You may need to add rows to get there but it took me about 60.
When you reach the desired length, finish off and leave a long tail to sew ends together being careful not to twist the loop. You could also slip stitch the last row and the chain or foundation row together. I think that tends to leave a more noticeable seam though.
MJ Slouchy Hat
Using the L Hook
Note: The hat will be worked in joined rounds. Unless noted, each round begins with a Ch 2 and ends with a SS to the first DC of the Round. Chains do NOT count as stitches.
1) In MR, do 11 DC (11)
2) 2DC in each around (22)
3) *DC in first DC, 2DC in next DC* Repeat from * to * around (33)
4) *DC in first 2, 2DC in next* Repeat from * to * around (44)
5) *DC in next 7 DC, 2DC in next DC*. Repeat 5 times, DC in last 4, join to first DC (49)
6-10) DC in each stitch around (49)
11) *DC in next 7 DC, DC2TOG*. Repeat from * to * 5 times, DC in last 4, join with SS to first DC (44)
12) Ch 1, *SC in next 10, SC2TOG* Repeat from * to * 3 times. SC in next 8, join with SS to first SC (41)
13-14) Ch 1, SC around, join with SS to first SC (41)
Finish off, weave in ends.
(Optional) Make a pom pom and attach to the top center of the hat. There are lots of tutorials for pom poms out there. I think they are very cute but I despise making them.
And there you go! A super cute and simple hat and scarf combo. This set used exactly one skein of the Charisma BIG yarn. You could definitely mix and match colors or use the whole skein for the scarf to make it longer. One of my favorite things about crochet is how you can take a pattern and modify it to fit your style!
