Free Pattern Friday: Rugby Striped Infinity Scarf!
T-minus 1 day until December! I can't wait for this weekend because we're finally putting up the Christmas decorations and making it a bit more festive in our bare home. I've honestly debated leaving the decorations up all year round just because of how great of a mood they put me in! I'll just be known as "Crazy Crocheting Christmas Lady"- kind of has a ring to it.
One of the first crochet projects I ever re-pinned on Pinterest was this adorable blue & white rugby striped scarf. Even though it sat there for years and years, I've never actually attempted it! You would think with all of the projects & new stitches I've learned after all this time that I would have at least attempted something so simple and cute! So here I am, 3 years later bringing you my finished rugby striped scarf & free pattern.
The Pattern Breakdown
The actual pattern for this scarf is very simple- make enough chains to reach the desired width & create 1dc in each stitch. Since I'm working with Red Heart Super Saver yarn, I wanted mine a little wider in order to give it some volume. I also made it a tad bit shorter than what I would typically make for something to wear all the time. I figured if I bunched it up more around my neck then it would give it a little more warmth. If you would like to make yours longer, I suggest creating an additional color set (14 sections total). Other than that one tip, this pattern is pretty self-explanatory.

Rugby Striped Infinity Scarf
1 skein weight 4 yarn in 2 colors (I used Red Heart Super Saver in “Claret” and “White”)
I - 5.5mm
ch = chain
sc= single crochet
dc = double crochet
F/O = finish off (ch1, cut yarn and pull tail through to create a knot)
Ch2 at the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a stitch
To create perfectly straight edges, create the 1st dc in the same stitch as the ch2 & the last dc should be in the last stitch, not the ch2 from the previous row
(Color 1- White) Ch 42. Insert hook into 3rd chain from hook & create 1dc in each stitch (40)
Ch2 & turn. Create 1dc in each stitch
Repeat step 2 until you have 8 dc rows in color 1. Switch to Color 2- Claret & repeat. By the end, you should have 14 total sections (7 of each color)
Once all sections are completed, fold scarf in half & create 1sc in each stitch across to connect. F/O & weave tail.
