Half Fabric Half Crochet Infinity Scarf ’

FO: Half Fabric, Half Crochet Infinity Scarf

I’ve been showing off all of my holiday knitting this week that I wasn’t able to show off before Christmas, and last but not least we’ve got the second half of my gift to my sister in law, Emily. I did show off the From Norway With Love hat I gave her, but I was able to keep this a secret till Christmas morning.

Pink and Brown Infinity Scarf!

Emily really liked the scarf I made when I was wearing it before Christmas, so I added it to my to-make list. I totally meant to take pictures of her wearing it at Christmas but of course forgot.

Pink! Brown! Love!

I love pink and brown together. This is some left over brown Caron Pound of Love I had laying around, and I found a silky pink remnant at JoAnn for the other half.

So Cute and Cozy!

Want this scarf but can’t crochet? Jessica adjusted the pattern and wrote a tutorial for a knit version! Check out her Half Fabric, Half Knit Infinity Scarf tutorial here.

Half Fabric, Half Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern and Tutorial

I’ve never been much of a shopper before spending extended amounts of time in Minneapolis and discovering the Mall of America: The Mall of Malls. I don’t think I can ever go to another mall again as long as I live! It’d be like eating chocolate cake and then only getting to eat Hersey’s Kisses for the rest of your life.

I was strolling along the Mall of America one day and came across this Floral Print Crochet Eternity Scarf at Urban Outfitters. I loved the idea of putting fabric together with crochet, and was determined to figure out how to do it myself.

Half Fabric Half Crochet Infinity Scarf

What You’ll Need

  • 44″ by 16″ square of fabric that is the same on both sides – I used polka dot silk
  • 330 – 400 yards of worsted weight yarn – I used three skeins of Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Bok Choy, Copper, and Dusk
  • Crochet hooks, size 1 (2.35 mm), and size J (6 mm)
  • Small single hole puncher

Directions

Holes Punched Along One End

1. With the small hole puncher, punch between 36 – 42 holes along a short end of the fabric, slightly less than 1/2″ apart.

Single Crochet Into Holes

2. With your smaller crochet hook, pull up a loop of yarn through the first hole in your fabric. Slide that loop onto your larger crochet hook. With your smaller crochet hook, pull up another loop of yarn through the second hole in your fabric. Slide it onto your larger crochet hook. With your larger crochet hook, yarn over and pull that loop through both loops on your crochet hook, completing your first single crochet stitch.

Continue in this manner – pulling up a loop of yarn through the next hole in your fabric with your smaller crochet hook, putting that loop on your larger crochet hook, and making a single crochet, until all your holes have single crochet stitches in them.

One Row Down!

3. When you are done with this first row of single crochet, chain 2 and turn. Work in double crochet until crocheted section measures 44″, so half your scarf is fabric and half your scarf is double crocheted.

All Done and Ready to Join!

4. Punch the same number of holes in the other side of fabric that you have stitches. Make sure to count so that if you lost or added a stitch along the way you can either correct it or adjust the number of holes you make in your fabric.

Joining

5. With your fabric laying over your crochet section, and being careful not to have a twist in your scarf (unless you want one!), with your smaller crochet hook pull up a loop of yarn through both the next DC and the first hole in your fabric.

Pull Up Loop Through Both Sections

And put that loop on your larger crochet hook.

Ready to Single Crochet

And complete the single crochet stitch!

Crocheting Both Pieces Together!

6. Repeat in this manner – pulling up another loop through both next DC and hole in your fabric with your small crochet hook, putting it on your larger crochet hook, and single crocheting  it, along the entire row.

Single Crocheting it Together

And you are done! Weave in your ends, and get ready to have a gigantic scarf to master!

SO BIG!

But this scarf is a winner whether you rock it doubled up or tripled up around your neck.

Triple Wrapped

I’ve been wearing it every time the temp drops below 75 and people are convinced I’m wearing two scarfs! It’s awesome!

Crochet and Fabric! Together at Last
