Bellflower infinity scarf

Bellflower infinity scarfSave

Originally this was a free pattern offered through the Caron company’s website for their Naturally Caron line of yarn. Since Naturally Caron was discontinued by the company, the pattern is now offered on hooked-on-crafting.com. This is another beginner-level project which combines several simple stitches for a surprisingly sophisticated and elaborate looking pattern. If you use lighter yarn, you’ll get a narrower, shorter scarf; bulkier yarn will give you one which is wider and longer (good advice to keep in mind for all of these scarves). A beautiful and popular pattern!

Cozy neck warmer

This is another great infinity scarf by DROPS Design. We love this design for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it is simple and would look great with literally anything. Secondly, it looks so warm and cozy! Sometimes you just want to snuggle up to a good book by the fireplace on a cold winter day and stay warm. This is the perfect infinity scarf for that! And then maybe later in the day you’ll go out ice-skating. Your infinity scarf by DROPS Design will keep you warm then too!

Bernadita winter scarf

This scarf is a little different from the others we’ve looked at so far! Bernadita by DROPS Design uses a wide band of knitted fabric and closes off with a cute row of buttons. The buttons are very clever—you can wear this as an infinity scarf or not, which makes it even more flexible than most infinity designs. The wide bands of cloth give it a different look and feel, and make it a warmer choice for cold winter days.

American Apparel knockoff (for less)!

American Apparel knockoff infinity scarfSave

American Apparel sells some cute unisex infinity scarves that anyone would love … except the price tag. Let’s face it, $37 is a lot of money for a small piece of cloth! Crafter Ilene decided she wanted one of these without the ridiculous price, so she came up with her own design. Personally, we think these are even more adorable than the original designs by American Apparel! And they’re great for guys or gals!

Dip-dyed infinity scarf

Dip-dyed infinity scarfSave

This is a very cool way to dye a solid-colored infinity scarf so that you have a beautiful gradient of color. The scarf in the photograph is dyed orange and white, but you could use any colors you wanted. To make this pattern you have to dip the scarf—kind of like that dip dyed hair look that is so trendy these days. In fact, you can’t get cooler than wearing a dip-dyed infinity scarf with your dip-dyed hair. Combine these two looks for an awesome effect!

Pretty crocheted infinity scarf

Do you love the crocheted look? This scarf has a beautiful pattern which is a little more elaborate than some of the other knitted designs we’ve looked at so far. In the photo, it’s a smallish scarf, but you could make a longer one for more versatility and coverage. It’d look gorgeous in any color. And as the designer pointed out, these also make great gifts. Everybody loves a handmade scarf!

Another cute design with buttons

Another cute design with buttonsSave

Here’s another infinity scarf that uses buttons as part of the design, but here they are decorative instead of functional. The ends of the scarf are sewn together, but the buttons add a nice ornamental flair. This chunky knit look is otherwise pretty similar to the one above. Wonderful for fall or winter!

Knit infinity scarf and matching headband

Now here’s an adorable idea! Since you’re already getting the materials for an infinity scarf, why not make a matching headband to go with it? It’s the same basic idea, and it makes for a great matching set. This is an easy pattern to make, and we love how the scarf looks both warm and delicate. This is another one that would make an excellent gift set for somebody special over the winter holidays.

Crazy shell infinity scarf

Crazy shell infinity scarfSave

This free pattern from Hilary over at The Batter’s Box is absolutely gorgeous! It takes less than a skein of yarn, so this one doesn’t require a lot of expense in the way of supplies. The pattern has an almost scalloped look to it, and has a kind of calm elegance. It’s not too chunky, so if you are going for a lighter look that still uses yarn, this would be an excellent choice. We love the way she’s got it folded in half here to make it thinner. You could do that with any of the infinity scarves here for a slightly different look.

Lots of cozy layers of warmth and style

This scarf is another that is pretty simple in design and definitely puts warmth and comfort first and foremost. We love how it’s all layered up. If you live in a really cold climate, just think how nice this would be for these chilly days when you’re outside waiting for the bus or walking home from the corner store. Best of all, it’s a simple style to make, so it’s an easy pattern for beginners!

Broomstick lace infinity scarf

Broomstick lace infinity scarfSave

This is one of the most unique designs we’ve seen yet! The broomstick lace technique looks tough to master, but once you get started, you’ll be surprised by how easy it is. We just adore the colors on this one too—the shifting hues help to bring out the pattern in all of its lacey intricacy. It’s warm and has some bulk to it, but it also has a more delicate, organic look. A beautiful, elegant design with an entirely different look and feel. This knitting pattern may be a better match for your wardrobe if the other styles seem a little too casual or blocky for your tastes.

End of winter infinity scarf

End of winter infinity scarfSave

If you liked the cozy and chunky design from earlier over at One Dog Woof, you might have noticed a second design further down the page. The “End of winter” scarf was designed for those days where the sun is starting to warm the pavement and the snow is melting—but there’s still that bitter chill in the air. The cozy and chunky design from earlier was longer, more ideal for mid-winter. This scarf is a lot shorter and smaller, which makes it perfect for those transitional days just before the big spring melt. Another great design from One Dog Woof!

Infinity rugby scarf

Infinity rugby scarfSave

Love rugby, or even just the rugby scarf look with the wide bands of color? Horizontal stripes really “pop” and add a nice sporty flair to any outfit. This infinity scarf is a great alternative to the traditional rugby scarf design. The designer has a couple of different examples, one with bolder, contrasting stripes in white and blue, and one with more subtle stripping in grey and white. Both looks are fabulous, and the pattern is easy. Great one for beginners!

Hooded infinity scarf

Hooded infinity scarfSave

One fun way to wear an infinity scarf which is just a little bit different is as a cowl. This is a stylish way to keep your head warm and dry on cold rainy or snowy days. It keeps your ears warm and it’s a great way to keep the wind from messing up your hair. It’s a nice change from your usual hat or umbrella, and if you don’t need to wear it over your head anymore, you can just push it down around your neck, and it returns to being just a normal, functional scarf.

This is a lovely pattern for an infinity scarf which is designed to be worn on your head. Not all infinity scarves are ideal for this, but this one will sit just right. You can be sure if you live in a windy or cold area of the world that all your friends will envy you and want one when they see it. So you’ll probably be making a lot more as gifts!

Earlier we shared an adorable pattern for an infinity scarf and matching headband, both knit. This is another knit pattern by DROPS Design for a similar matching set, but instead of a headband, you make a hat and mittens! The matching set is beautiful, and we love the scalloped pattern of the knitting, which gives it an almost lacey look. It makes for a nice design accent on the mittens, and helps to unify the set. Very stylish and warm!

Isis infinity scarf

Isis infinity scarfSave

While most of our infinity scarf patterns are designed for keeping warm on a cold day, we did discover a few lighter patterns that are great for year-round wear. The Isis infinity scarf design uses a thin yarn, which results in a lightweight design which won’t overwhelm you during the spring and autumn months. Wear it long, wrap it twice, or wrap it three times if you do get cold. However you choose to wear it, it will add a splash of color and a decorative accent to any outfit. A perfect pattern if you’re not into the chunky look and want something a little more subtle and delicate looking.

Braided infinity scarf and head band

This cute pattern has a braided look, and definitely falls into the chunky category. At the same time, it’s very simple and easy to adjust. This is another matching set. Headbands are easier to make than caps, which makes this a good beginner project; once you know how to make the scarf, you’ll have no problem making the headband. Cute, simple, and warm!

This is a gorgeous pattern for an elegant, lacy scarf that has a lighter, more open feel. You could wear this scarf with literally anything. It’d go great with a casual sweater and slacks, but it would also look wonderful with a nice party dress. The pattern is a little fancier than some of the others featured here, but should make for a great intermediate project once you have mastered some of the easier projects.

This infinity scarf has a simple but eye-catching pattern; it’s wide and sits loosely around the neck, and looks incredibly comfortable.
