What is the Best Stitch for a Crochet Infinity Scarf?
The best stitch for crochet infinity scarves are ones that do not have a wrong side. Simple stitches like these have a lovely texture on both sides so that when you wrap your crochet infinity scarf it looks nice no matter which side is showing. Crochet projects that don’t have a wrong side like this easy crochet infinity scarf pattern make great gifts!
How Many Chains Do I Need to Crochet an Infinity Scarf?
The number of chains needed to crochet an infinity scarf depends on if you are working your infinity scarf in the round or in rows to be seamed. The hook size and yarn weight will also affect the number of chain stitches needed for your crochet project.
To make a basic infinity scarf you are going to want the length or circumference long enough to be able to wrap around your neck twice. If you are not using a stitch pattern where your multriple matters like single crochet or double crochet stitches you can work one long chain and test that it can wrap twice. You may also work a shorter chain and create back and forth rows until you have a panel long enough to seam together that will wrap twice.
