Ok, have you ever been on Pinterest and you’re just scrolling along when something catches your eye? You stop and look, and it just takes your breath away. Love at first sight, you HAVE to have it. But then, you click the photo and the link is either fake or broken and your dreams are instantly crushed. This often happens to me with crochet patterns (which to me is extra unfortunate because this is obviously something I can make for myself instead of buying). This happened recently with this photo:
Honestly, how GORGEOUS is this scarf?! So you can imagine my severe disappointment when I clicked it and it took me to a blog that contained only a few mismatched photos (that did not belong to the owner of the blog) and NO pattern! Devastated. I then tried doing a Catfish-style reverse image search but I was still left empty-handed. Normally I would just accept it and move on, but after reading through the comments, it seemed like a few people had figured out a general “recipe” so-to-speak. I took a closer look at the photo and it seemed like they were on the right track so I thought why not! The most difficult part of this scarf was braiding it, and once I got the hang of that finishing it was a breeze.
Mine doesn’t quite match the photo but for an improvised pattern I’m pretty happy! After examining the photo a little closer, it looks like they may have crocheted with two strands of yarn at once, so if you want try that with your own scarf I encourage you to do so and let me know how it goes!!
Woven Crochet Infinity Scarf
You will need:
- 1 skein (4.5 oz/277 yds) Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in the color of your choice- shown in pumpkin; or any worsted weight (size 4) yarn (if you decide to work with 2 strands you will need 2 skeins)
- 5 mm crochet hook; you may need to go up a size if you decide to work with 2 strands, play with it some and do what feels comfortable.
- tapestry needle
- straight pins
Ch 293 (alternatively, you can chain until your strand reaches 70″)
Row 1: Ch 3 (this is in addition to your 293, so you will have 296), dc in the 4th ch from hook, dc across. Cut and secure.
Repeat this 4 more times for a total of 5 strands.
To make the braid, line up your strands side by side (no spacing). I used straight pins to secure my strands in place (I was doing this on the carpet; it doesn’t really matter where as long as your strands don’t move while braiding). Starting with the leftmost strand (1), go over strand 2 and under strand 3. Strand 1 is now in the center. Now with the right most strand (5), go over strand 4 and under strand 1. Strand 5 is now in the center. Continue working the strands left to center and right to center until you reach the end of your braid (if you are a visual learner like I am, I used this YouTube video!).
Once you’ve finished braiding, match up your ends and tie them together. Weave in all ends. Adjust your strands so that they are evenly spaced all the way around.
And that’s it! Share your finished scarf on Instagram using #themaloneresidence to show off your stitching. I hope you guys enjoyed my first pattern!
