Winter Spider Stitch Crochet Infinity Scarf Designed By: Jennifer Zmurchyk

Crochet this beautiful warm infinity scarf inspired by the classic crochet spider stitch. This scarf only requires a small amount of color changes however, it gives the illusion of having many colors due to the fact that self striping yarn is used. Only 2 skeins of yarn are required – one for the main body of the scarf and one for the contrasting color.

The finished measurements for this crochet infinity scarf are app. 69” x 7.5” and the pattern is written in US crochet terms.

To work a color change: work stitch as normal, but on the last yarn over, lay the new color on the hook rather than the old color, ensuring that the new color will have a 6-7” tail for weaving in the end, then use the new color to draw through the remaining loop(s) on hook.  Cut yarn of the old color leaving a 6 – 7” tail for weaving end in and proceed with the new color.

This version uses self striping purple yarn

Row 3: ch3 (counts as first dc), sk first dc, dc in next 2dc, *[ch3, sk next ch3 space, sc in next 4tr, ch3, sk next ch3 sp, dc in next 3 dc], repeat from * across, turn (19, 3dc groups – 36, ch3 spaces – 18, 4sc groups)

Row 7: ch3 (counts as first dc), sk first dc, dc in next dc, and in each dc, ch 1 sp, and tr across, switching to CC in last dc, turn (219 dc)

**Tipat the end of row 7, and 8, it is a great idea to take the extra time to count and make sure you have 219 dc before switching to the CC at the end of row 7, and 219 hdc using the CC in row 8 before switching back to the MC for row 9.  If the stitch count is off, the repeat pattern of the spider stitch for the second half of the scarf will be off as well.

Row 8: With CC, ch2 (counts as first hdc), sk first dc, hdc in each dc across, switching to MC in last dc, turn (219 hdc)

Row 9: With MC, ch3 (counts as first dc), sk first dc, dc in each hdc across, turn (219 hdc)

Row 10 through 15: repeat row 2 through 7, without switching to CC at the end of row 7, fasten off, leaving a 20” tail for assembly

Weave in ends, and assemble scarf halves together along short edges using the 20” tail from row 15 at top edges with darning needle and a whip stitch taking care not to do the stitching to tightly as this will cause the scarf to bunch up at the seam.

Edging:  join CC in any dc along long edge (or ch from beginning chain 221 on other edge), ch4 (counts as first hdc, ch1), *[sk next dc, hdc in next dc, ch1 (or *[hdc in next ch, ch1, skip next hdc on other edge])], repeat from *around, joining with a sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch4 sp, fasten off, weave in ends, repeat for other edge.

Blocking – Please note that blocking is necessary for this scarf to look its best due to the intricate stitch work.  Hand wash scarf in cold water with a small amount of mild detergent, adding a small amount of fabric softener after rinsing if desired (rinse again if using fabric softener).  Gently wring out the scarf to get excess water out.  A good method for this is to lay it on a towel and roll the towel up to soak up the excess water.  Lay flat to dry in desired shape on a towel, using dressmaker pins if desired.
