Hello and welcome to Daisy Farm Crafts! We absolutely love to crochet over here and really love sharing free patterns with you. Today we are sharing the Beginner Crochet Color Block Infinity Scarf.
This scarf only uses the two most basic stitches in crochet, the single crochet and double crochet. When you alternate working those two stitches, it creates the most beautiful texture.
We have come to call this stitch combination the Griddle Stitch. In some crochet circles, it also can be called Lemon Peel stitch.
If you need a refresher on how the Griddle Stitch is worked, please watch the quick video tutorial linked below. We recommend making a swatch before you start your scarf to make sure you have the appropriate hook to work with. If it’s too tight, you’ll want to use a larger hook. If your sample swatch is too loose, try a smaller hook.
Here’s the video:
This scarf is made in short rows, with a few color changes to give it a unique look. When finished, the two ends are sewn together to make the infinity circle.
We love working with Patons Canadiana for scarves. It is a very nice and soft acrylic with beautiful colorways to choose from. The creamy color called winter white is the perfect shade of off-white. It’s not too yellow and not too white.
You can shop for it online at Yarnpsirations.com or sometimes can find it online from Amazon.
We hope you enjoy this beginner friendly pattern! If you would like to see other scarves we have made, be sure and check out our menu heading Crochet Patterns/Scarves for more ideas.

1 skein each White, Fool’s Gold, Pale Gray Mix, Teal Heather
Size J/6.00mm hook, scissors, tapestry needle
Finished size 8 in x 80 in
Gauge 4 in = 12 st and 10 rows
Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.
Double Crochet (DC): YO, insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops on hook.
Chain 35 (or any odd number) with Teal Heather.
Row 1: Starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, work 1 SC. In the next stitch, work 1 DC. Alternate working SC and DC in each stitch across the row, ending with a DC in the last chain. CH 1 and turn.
Row 2: SC into the top of the DC you just made in the row below. Then, DC into the next SC. Alternate the DC and SC across the whole row. Always work a DC into the top of a SC, and work a SC into the top of the DC. CH 1 and turn.
Repeat row 2 for the remainder of the scarf with the following color changes:
24 rows Teal Heather, 22 rows White, 10 rows Pale Gray Mix, 6 rows White, 5 rows Pale Gray Mix, 24 rows Fool’s Gold, 24 rows Teal Heather, 24 rows White, 24 rows Pale Gray Mix, 24 Fool’s Gold
To change colors, work the last DC of the row until the last step of the stitch when you have two loops left on your hook. Pull through the two loops with the new color and leave a tail that you can weave into the scarf later. Cut off the previous color leaving another tail you can weave in later.
When finished, tie off and leave yourself a long tail you can use to sew the two ends of the scarf together. (You can also slip stitch the two ends together before tying off if you prefer.) Then weave in any remaining ends with a tapestry needle and enjoy your scarf!
