Mini-Chevron Infinity Scarf

Crochet Chevron Scarf

This crochet chevron scarf is easy to make and feels great around your neck. I love that now 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 which many yarn enthusiasts like to refer to as “chevrons”.

Crochet Zig-Zags in a ONE row Repeat!

So, I decided to create this crochet chevron scarf with Red Heart’s Soft Yarn and am calling it the “Mini-Chevron Infinity Scarf.” 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.

Special Stitches and Abbreviations:

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

Crochet Chevron Scarf Pattern Tips

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)

Showing how to change color at end of rows for the crochet chevron scarf

How to Change Yarn Color:

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) –

(I like to call this color-changing technique, “Join with sc” and you can watch a short video tutorial of it here)

Now you can pick up the pattern in Row 2 after the section marked in bold red (sc in dc)

Finishing of the Crochet Chevron Scarf Pattern:

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!
