Easy Velvety Infinity Scarf

This Easy Velvety Infinity Scarf is fun to crochet and wear! Bernat’s Velvet Yarn (by Yarnspirations) is sooooo soft and easy to crochet with. I love how it feels while crocheting and how it feels around my neck. This yarn comes in some beautiful colors and in large skeins which is plenty to make this project.

This project has just 2 stitches in it – single crochet and a simple textured stitch I like to call the “Yarn Over Slip Stitch” – see the explanation or watch the video below to know exactly how to make this stitch. You’ll realize that it gives great texture and interest without being complicated. Plus, I’ve made a video tutorial (see below) to help you with each step of the project.

    1. Hi – Yes, at the end of each special stitch row, you would do a ch 1 and then work the single crochets in the next row.
      As for the special stitch row, you can do a ch-1 turning chain or not – it’s your choice. The video shows both ways of doing it. 🙂

  1. I am glad you posted this video. About 6
    months ago I was going through my old yarn stach. Found 2 half balls of velvet yarns a dark green and a gray. They seem a little bit stiffer than the new velvet yarn. I am sure they will be a good substitute. Thank you for your video.

    1. Glad you found some velvet yarn to work with- it’s so fun! Hope you enjoy working on your project. Happy crocheting!

  2. I took the jewelry class with you and it was lovely. I look forward to using my two skeins of Bernat Velvet. Thanks for the patterns. Hope I win so I can see your designs in the magazine. Thanks for the email.

    1. Hi Deb! Glad you enjoyed the jewelry class – you are welcome for the patterns. You’ll love crocheting with the yarn. 🙂
