Pattern Key
• St/Sts: Stitch/Stitches

Pattern Note: The chain(s) in the beginning of each round count as the first stitch. Please mind rounds 4, 5, 6 and 7 especially; your chain 1 will solely occupy the first stitch of the round, and your first worked single crochet stitch must be placed directly after that (the second stitch of the round). This will cause your seam to slant diagonally to the left.

Special Stitch
• Cluster: (Yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook
• Whip Stitch: Using a hook or needle.

Finishing Note: This pattern creates either a scarf or infinity cowl. To make either, follow the complete pattern for the size scarf/cowl you would like to make, then after the last row of the pattern is worked follow finishing directions according to the style you would like to obtain:

  • Infinity Cowl: Cut 18” tail, fasten. Fold work in half lengthwise, turn one half over on itself (creates 1 twist). Using 18” tail, whip stitch first row together with last row worked. Fasten.
  • Scarf: Fasten work, weave tail ends to conceal.

Finishing suggestion: Using your favorite tassel method, attach 1 tassel between each cluster on first and last row of scarf (8 per side, 16 total)

Optional Border: Using a matching or contrasting color yarn, work 3 Sc into each Sc end row. Work in a continuous round for the infinity cowl style, work onto either side for the scarf style.
