Chunky Crochet Infinity Scarf – Free Pattern and Video

This post may contain affiliate links, view my disclosure policy for details.

Perfect for the coldest winter days, the Snowdrop Infinity Scarf is a cozy, chunky crochet infinity scarf with a gorgeous texture. I used a super bulky chenille yarn for my infinity scarf, but a velvet yarn also works great with this pattern.

So, read on for the free Snowdrop Infinity Scarf pattern and video, as well as some yarn suggestions for your own snuggly scarf!

This pattern uses basic crochet stitches and a simple one row repeat, making it a perfect crochet pattern for beginners. Honestly, if you can make a single crochet and a chain, then you can make this scarf!

Even if you are a complete beginner, there are some step-by-step photos below to get you started on the first couple of rows. And after that it’s rinse and repeat πŸ™‚

This scarf is also super easy to customize. I have written the pattern for 3 sizes – Toddler, Child and Teen/Adult. But you could easily alter the length by adding/subtracting rows – it’s as simple as that!

This is one of my crochet makes that I have decided to keep for myself. It’s just so warm and cozy I couldn’t part with it! But if you are looking for a quick and easy crochet gift, then I definitely think this ticks all the boxes.

It’s a great couch project to work on during a Netflix (or crochet podcast!) session, and you could absolutely get one of these infinity scarfs turned out in an evening πŸ™‚

What you’ll need for this crochet infinity scarf

For my scarf, I used James C. Brett Flutterby Chunky which is a #6/Super Bulky chenille yarn. Some other great substitutes include:

I used a 6mm (J-10) hook for my scarf, but any hook that suits your chosen yarn will work great. I probably wouldn’t go up past a 7mm hook, just to make sure your scarf stays cozy.

Ashley (@amaymaycreations) used Bernat Velvet for her scarf

Monica (@hookandloopdesigns) also used Bernat Velvet!

Skill Level


  • This infinity scarf is worked flat, as a long strip.
  • Edges are seamed at the end.

Abbreviations (US Terms)

  • ch = chain                      
  • tch = turning chain
  • st = stitch    
  • sk = skip
  • sc = single crochet            
  • rem = remaining

General Pattern Notes

  • Instructions are given for the smallest size, with larger sizes in brackets ( ).
  • Stitch counts are given in [ ] at the end of each row.
  • If no stitch count is given, the count is the same as for the previous row.
  • This pattern uses the single crochet β€œv” st [(sc, ch 2, sc) all worked in same place]. For ease of counting, stitch counts are given for sc only, and do not include the ch-2 sps.
  • Ch 1 at the start of ROW 1 does not count as a st.
  • Ch 2 at the start of subsequent rows counts as tch-1 and 1 st.
  • Take note of the last row of the pattern; it is slightly different to the main row repeat, and is designed to give a flat edge to the end of the scarf.
  • Please see Appendix: Stitch Chart for a diagram of the stitch pattern and repeats.

Finished Measurements

Toddler: 36″ x 3.5″  / 91.5cm x 9cm

Teen/Adult: 64″ x 6.75″ / 162.5 cm x 17 cm


12 single crochet x 9 rows = 4″ x 4″ / 10 cm x 10 cm measured over pattern.

Note: Gauge is not critical for this project. This pattern uses the single crochet β€œv” st [(sc, ch 2, sc) all worked in same place]. When counting your stitches, it is much easier to simply count the sc stitches on their own, and leave out the ch-2 sps. Stitch counts in the pattern are given for sc only.

Yarn: Any chenille or velvet #6 / Super Bulky weight yarn.
