Free Pattern: Diamond Lattice Chain Crochet Infinity Scarf

6/13/2013 UPDATE:

MY FRIENDS!  Thank you for coming by to visit this post!  When I peruse my stats (because I am a statistician, that is what I do), this post always has a bazillion people clicking every day.  I sincerely hope you are all chaining your way to awesome scarves.

That being said, yesterday I stumbled across a free pattern from the always awesome, always famous The Lovely Crow on a “Genius Headband“.  When I clicked on it, I discovered that 1) it was pretty much the same lattice pattern as below, but 2) it has a WAY BETTER finishing technique than mine.  I read the instructions and already I could tell that it creates a seamless, awesome finish instead of the weird lumpy row I was improvising.

So, that being said, please feel free to visit Ravelry and download the pattern yourself for reference.  You’ll need an account, but I have a feeling most of you came here from Ravelry in the first place anyway.  😛  Good luck!

*Start original scarf post*

This is my most used go-to scarf pattern.  I love it because 1) it’s super easy, 2) it’s super fast, and 3) it’s super yarn/budget friendly.  I mean, with all these incredible bonuses working in its favor, how can you *not* be inspired to grab a skein (and a half) of bulky yarn and whip one out too?

This scarf is great because the bulky yarn and extra long length keeps you super warm, but the open lattice work keeps you from smothering to death.  This is very important because there is simply nothing worse than being simultaneously freezing when it’s cold out, yet having sweat dripping down your chest and feeling like you’re about to choke.  Not that I speak from personal experience.

My favorite bulky yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick n Quick.  It comes in a variety of really great colors (my personal favorites are citron and lemongrass), it’s that so-helpful blend of acrylic and wool which means it’s cozy and warm like wool but non-scratchy and most importantly machine washable like acrylic, and you can find it everywhere online and in stores and usually for a great deal too.

I can’t even remember which hook I normally use – K, L, or M all work with this pattern.  There’s no gauge, no swatch, no important notes to reference.  And all you have to do is know how to chain.  Wha-?  That’s right, this is tooootally a beginner’s scarf.

Let’s begin!

Row 1: Slip stitch into the 10th chain from the hook.  Ch5, count every 5 chains, slip stitch, repeat to the end.

Row 2: ch5, turn, and slip stitch into the middle of the ch5 loop (or third ch).  Repeat: ch5 and slip stitch into the middle chain of each loop.

End of row 2.  Ch5, turn, and repeat.  Chain chain chain away until scarf is desired length.

I usually make this hat with 60-75% of one skein of Lion Brand Thick n Quick, and use the rest and an additional skein to complete the scarf.  It makes the perfect length, AND it’s budget friendly.  (Who would have thought you could get a nice crocheted hat AND a really long scarf out of only two skeins of bulky yarn?!)  When you reach the length you want, flip the scarf over…

…and line up the other edge.  You can either make a loop, or twist it once for a ‘mobius’ effect.  Starting from the blue arrow, insert your hook and sl st both sides together.

…like so.  Ch3, then sl st into the top of both loops (the right white arrow on the previous photo).  Ch5, sl st into two loops four times.  Ch3, sl st into both loops at the end (last white arrow on the left).

Your finished edge will look like this.  It looks like just another row.

It will leave a bit of a bumpy ridge when you lay it flat, but I’ve never had anyone complain about it, and it’s barely noticeable when you put it on.

Loop that sucker around your neck and go conquer the world!

11/23/2013: Final addendum.  I’ve had several people ask (very nicely) if they could sell scarves made from this pattern.  Please, feel free.  If you’ve put the time into it, you should reap whatever benefits you want.  I humbly request a link or acknowledgement of some kind to this post, but otherwise, chain away to your heart’s (profitable) content.  Thanks!!

  1. I have just made this fantastic scarf. Thank you so much for the pattern. Is it okay to try and sell scarves using this pattern or a blanket? I do not have a website but have pointed people to this page and also your Facebook page. Thank you again!!

    • You are most certainly welcome to sell anything you make off of these patterns! I only ask that you reference this website as the pattern author when you sell your items. Thanks so much for dropping by!

  2. I was looking for a pattern that was open/airy for the upcoming spring/summer and this fit the bill to a “T”. I’m a fairly new crocheter and after several attempts I finally got it together. The scarf is beautiful! Have a quick question and I’m sure only because I’m new to crocheting, but am having a hard time figuring out how to join the ends when the scarf is done. Any help you can give would be most appreciated! Thank you and thanks for this great pattern. I’ll be making several more, I know.

  3. This is a beautiful pattern. I just have a question. I’m having left over chain stitches on my row 1. Does the slip stitch count as a stitch when you are counting 5 stitches after chaining 5 before doing another slip stitch? Thanks.

  4. Thank you for this great pattern! I just made one as a gift for a cousin, and I’m sure she’ll love it! It’s simple, yet original! And your instructions were very clear… I usually only go for patterns that are on video because I always find it difficult with only the instructions, but you made it “obvious” to know how to go about the pattern! =)

  5. I love this pattern and I’m going to make it! I also love your way with words. “Loop that sucker around your neck and go conquer the world!”. Lol!

  6. Thank you for this pattern. I am a beginner at this and am really pleased that I actually made something I can wear proudly! I also made some bookmarks for my kids for Valentines Day by crotcheting just two rows of this pattern and finishing it with a tassel.

  7. So hoping you see this comment. I’m wondering how hard do you think it would be to add a border of a different color?

    • Hi! I’ve never done a border but I think it would be pretty easy. You’d want to make the entire scarf in the one color first, and then go around with the second color afterwards. I think it would look really pretty!

      • Thanks, I’m planning like mustard yellow with grey border, Just wanted an opinon on it before I took on too much 🙂

  8. I am going to try to work out a way of using this lovely stitch to make a long, shallow pointed scarf as most are too bulky. What are the numbers if making longer chain. I am also going to make this from some lovely wool that I’ve not been able to use as there’s not enough for a scarf. Thank you.

    • Hi! Thank you for your interest. The chains are in groups of five, so if you want to make the scarf wider, increase by 5 chains however many times you want to increase by a ‘loop’. Hope that helps!

  11. What a perfect way to reintroduce myself to crochet! Whipped one of these lovely scarves out in an afternoon using two strands together of Lion Brand Homespun =). I’ll definitely be doing more of these for gifts and maybe to sell (referring here for the pattern of course!). Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

  12. Thank you so very much for sharing this pattern!
    I just finished mine using Homespun yarn, Harvest color. I absolutely love the ease of making this and plan on making two more as holiday gifts.
    Thanks again,
    Penny from Michigan

  14. I only have #4 worsted weight yarn and am going to make this for my local library mitten and scarf drive during this holiday season. I needed a pattern that was super fast so I can make scarves quickly! thanks again for your crochet ideas!

  15. I’m going to feel like a dummy for asking this…but I was just recently introduced to crocheting and have literally no idea what I’m doing, so in row 1 when you are talking about slip stitching the 10th chain and then going on with the 5 chain stuff…I was hoping you could maybe take into further depth for me. I hate to be a bother or something but I could use the help. I’m planning on crocheting this scarf as a present for someone very close to me. I also had another questions if you don’t mind. I’m going to make the scarf in black and I wanted to use some red yarn to add some color. Are there any ways I could add the red to the regular scarf in an interesting but simple way?

  16. I used this pattern once but could not find it again. Now looking at your pattern for this scarf I am a winner to score the pattern and the style of scarf I have wanted. Thanks and I will let you know how I go ( wi term isn’t for another 6 months for me so I should be able to get a few extras made for other family members. Thanks again

  17. I know this has been up for a while, but I’m gonna try this idea with single crochet and the Boutique Unforgettable yarn. I hope it works out!! this lacy pattern with the silky weightless yarn should be great!

  18. I’m a beginner. This pattern is beautiful and very easy to do. I’ve just finished mine only in two days. Thank you so much for sharing it.. 💕 I love this page!
