19 Creative Free Crochet Patterns for Infinity Scarves from Lightweight Scarves for Spring or Summer and Heavier Cowls for Wintertime
Here’s a fun collection free patterns for you to crochet! Who doesn’t love a fun scarf or cowl?!
So, Summer is almost over once again which means it’s time to bust out your crochet hooks, yarn and knitting needles. Ready or not, winter is coming soon and I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of cold weather.
In the meantime, though, I do enjoy the Fall very much. The pumpkins, corn mazes, hot chocolate … Fall also reminds me of cuddling on the couch after dinner and knitting a fun hat or crocheting a pretty scarf.
I seem to have given away all of my handmade scarves (how does that always happen??) … so, I decided to find some new, fun and easy cowl and infinity scarf free crochet patterns for you to try out.
Scarves and cowls generally knit or crochet up very quickly so those projects are right up my alley and many patterns are perfect for beginner crocheters.
I learned a long time ago that the only finished projects at my house are quick ones so these infinity scarves and cowls are perfect for me.
You will also love these Baby Booty Free Patterns and Single Crochet Stitch Patterns.
Plus, these infinity scarf and cowl patterns are perfect to whip up as a last minute, special Christmas gift!
Plus they are all crochet patterns which usually work up much faster than knitted patterns. (Sorry knitters, no knitting patterns included this time).
This Beginner Infinity Scarf Crochet Kit includes everything you need to make this lovely cowl: 1 skein of yarn (your choice of color), crochet hook, tapestry needle, written pattern and a link to video instructions.
A great big Thank You to the lovely crochet pattern designers for allowing me to share their free infinity scarf patterns.

How long should I crochet an infinity scarf?
There is no right or wrong answer to this question. The obvious answer is “as long as you want it”.
Some people like their scarves shorter and hugging their necks while others prefer longer infinity scarves. It also depends on whether or not you like to wrap the scarf around your neck multiple times.
You can do a trial run of sorts with a regular scarf. Simply, safety pin the ends together and wrap it around your neck. That will give you an idea of how long your crocheted scarf needs to be.
According to Wiki How, 60″ is a good average length.
What crochet stitch works up the fastest?
In my personal opinion, I would have to say the Double or Triple/Treble Crochet Stitches are fastest because they are tall stitches.
AllFreeCrochet actually did a survey on this question and found that the fastest crochet stitch is the Double Crochet Stitch.
All that being said, I have seen some crocheters work so fast that you can’t see their hands move. My guess is they are using a simple stitch and can therefore work it very quickly.
It all depends on your expertise and years of practice.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
Yes, absolutely! The reason a bigger hook uses less yarn is that the hole you create while crocheting is larger. Your finished piece will therefore be lighter, more open and airy which is great for summer wraps and triangle shawls.
Note: when I say ‘less yarn’, what I mean is length of yarn, not weight.
