Scarves are great things to make and stash away for gifts. They also are a nice way to try out different stitches. That is how this scarf was born. This one, Trudy’s Infinity Scarf, can be made from any weight yarn and is cute worn in a loop or doubled.
My friend, Trudy, seems to love her scarf! I asked her to pose for a quick picture before school started. She is so fun!

Beyond The Basic Stitches
Tr – Treble Crochet (also known as Triple Crochet): YO hook twice, insert hook in st, pull up a loop, *YO, pull through 2 loops on hook*, repeat 2 more times.
Dtr – Double Treble Crochet: YO hook three times, insert hook in st, pull up a loop, *YO, pull through 2 loops on hook*, repeat until 1 loop remains on hook.
FPTR – Front Post Treble Crochet: YO hook twice, insert hook around post, from front right to left, YO, pull loop through, *YO, pull through 2 loops on hook*, repeat 2 more times.

Use a J hook for worsted weight yarn and a K hook for bulky weight yarn. This pattern could be made with super bulky weight yarn and an N or larger hook.
Note: “chains” between clusters are counted as a stitch. The turning chain on each row is also counted as a stitch.
1. With hook and yarn, ch 148, dtr in 9th ch from hook, sk 2, sl st in next ch, *ch 8, dtr in next st, sk 2, sl st*, repeat to end of row. (35 half circles)
2. This step is worked across the back of the original chain. Ch 5, dtr in next ch (see arrow in the photo below left), *ch 1, sk 2, dtr in next st, dtr in 2nd skipped st by crossing over dtr (see arrow in the photo below right),* repeat until 2 sts remain, dtr 2. (142sts and 46 crossed pairs)
Note: the repeated combination is referred to as a “cluster” in next step.
3. Ch 3, turn, dc in same st, *tr in space before cluster (see arrow in photo below left), sk one dtr, FPTR around next dtr (see photo below middle), FPTR around skipped dtr (see photo below)*, repeat until 3 sts remain (after last crossed pair), tr in next space, dc 2. (142sts)
4. Ch 3, turn, dc in next st, dc, *sk 1, BPTR around next post, FPTR around skipped post, dc in
next st*, repeat until 2 sts remain, dc 2. (142)
5. Ch 2, turn, 2hdc in next st, *sk 2, 3hdc in next st*, repeat until 3 sts remain, sk 1, 2hdc in last st. (142sts)
6. Do not turn. Working down side of scarf, ch 1, sc in side of last hdc, sc evenly down side of scarf (approximately 10sts).
7. Do not turn. This step is worked across beginning edge of scarf.
Tips for this row:
~ Look at the row. Each ½ circle is made up of an outer loop and inner loop and
will be referred to as such in this step.
~ There are two “flat” ½ circles (without adding peaks) between each peaked ½ circle.
~ Keep the “ch 3” between ½ circles loose. If you tend to crochet sc tightly, work “ch 4” in each of these areas instead. This does NOT include the “ch 3” that forms the peaks. Ch 4, hdc in the outer loop, tr in the bottom loop (from behind outer loop), hdc in the outer loop, *ch 3, sl st in outer loop of next ½ circle, ch 3, sl st in the outer loop of next ½ circle, ch 3, hdc in the outer loop of next ½ circle, tr in the bottom loop (from behind outer loop), ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, ch 2, tr in the bottom loop (from behind outer loop), hdc in outer loop*, repeat until one ½ circle remains, ch 3, hdc in the outer loop of next ½ circle, tr in the bottom loop (from behind outer loop), hdc in outer loop, ch 4, sc in end st one row below, sc evenly downside of the scarf. Finish off, leaving a tail for sewing short ends together.
Fold the scarf in half with right sides together. With yarn needle and matching yarn, sew short ends of the scarf together.
