Now that it is definitely scarf weather in New England have you noticed that everyone wears infinity scarves? They do seem to go on forever as they wrap around your neck more than once creating snuggly volume. I’ve also noticed many accessories and garments that feature the classic zig-zag pattern.

So, I decided to create a mini-chevron stitch pattern with Red Heart’s Soft Yarn. And guess what? You can achieve these sharp zig-zags with just single crochet and chains and a ONE row repeat! Yay! Read on to see the FREE PATTERN complete with a couple of diagrams and photos to help you succeed.


Mini-Chevron Infinity Scarf

By Jennifer E Ryan
Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Red Heart Soft Yarn in 5 colors:

Off White, Guacamole, Cinnabar, Navy and Turquoise

H/8/5 mm crochet hook

Yarn needle

Measurements: 6” wide x 60” long

Special Stitches:
Picot = (sc, ch 2, sc)

Simply work a single crochet; then ch 2; Now work another single crochet in the same place
There are many different types of “Picots” (pronounced “pee-kohs”) in the crochet world. A picot is basically a small chain loop made on top of a stitch as an accent. In this pattern they are where you work most of your stitches (after the first row).

Peak = [(sc, ch 2, sc), ch 3, (sc, ch 2, sc)] all in ch-3 sp of previous row’s peak

A chevron pattern is all peaks and valleys. At every peak you must add stitches (or increase) and in every valley you decrease (or skip stitches in this pattern). Can you see what makes up our peaks?
Yup, you guessed it – 2 picots with a ch-3 in the middle!
By cramming double the amount of picots in each ch-3 sp across, you are increasing and creating peaks.

Each row is made with a series of picots and skips using just single crochets and chains.
There are 4 peaks in each row.
A new color is introduced every 3 rows (see photo at end of pattern for help changing colors)

Diagram 1 – Here is a simple sketch of the chain and first row of this pattern – for some seeing the stitches mapped out like this can be helpful; If it makes it more confusing for you, then skip on to the pattern text below

Ch 61
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sk next ch,
[Picot in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
Peak in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
Picot in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
sc in next ch, sk next 3 chs,
sc in next ch, sk next 2 chs] 3 times;
Picot in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
Peak in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
Picot in next ch, sk next 2 chs,
dc in last ch. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in dc, sc in next Picot,
[Picot in next Picot,
Peak in next ch-3 sp,
Picot in next Picot,
(sc in next Picot) 2x] 3 times;
Peak in next ch-3 sp,
Picot in next Picot,
sc in last Picot, dc in last sc. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 60”

Color changing:
I changed color every 3 rows.
This is my color order:
Off White
Off White
Off White
Off White

To change color first fasten off the previous color and weave in the end.
Put new color on your hook with a slip knot.

Insert hook into dc at beginning of the row (you just completed) and work a sc – (Remember, you will be looking at the Wrong Side of this completed row) – Now you can pick up the pattern in Row 2 after the section marked in bold red (sc in dc)
Using yarn needle and last yarn tail, whip stitch first and last row together matching up peaks and valleys. (I made sure I ended with Off White so I could use the Off White yarn to sew up both white ends and it wouldn’t show.) Weave in all ends and wear to your next Thanksgiving get together!
