This Caramel Latte Infinity Scarf is super easy, super warm, and super versatile. What more could you ask for in a beautiful piece of crochet work? I love it as a scarf, but with a single twist over your head you have a gorgeous bulky cowl! Two great looks in one awesomely warm scarf.

Skill Level: Easy
Lion Brand Mandala Watercolors in Almond, or any yarn weight #5/Bulky – 5 skeins
Hook size L/11 – 8.00 mm
2 shells and 6 rows = 4” (see photos below for clarification)
16 1/2” wide by 54” long flat and unfolded, 27” long when folded
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
St, sts – stitch, stitches
- Beginning chains count as stitches.
- You’re making a long rectangle that you will fold in half to create the scarf.
- I recommend using stitch markers to easily keep your rows even. Place a stitch marker in the the first stitch of a row, and you will know where to crochet your last stitch when you get back to that end. It’s especially helpful to put a stitch marker in the top of the chain 3 at the beginning of that row (see Row 3 below) as it can be confusing where to do your last stitch in the following row.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. 151 sts.
Row 2: Turn, ch 1, sc in first st, sk 2, *5 dc in next st, sk 2, sc in next st, sk 2*. Repeat from * to * across row. Sc in last st.
Row 3: Turn, ch 3, 2 dc in first st (the ch 3 and 2 dc form a half shell), sk 2, sc in next st (this will be the center of the shell from the previous row), sk 2, *5 dc in next st (this is the sc from the previous row), sk 2, sc in next st, sk 2*. Repeat from * to * across row. 3 dc in last st.
Row 4: Turn, ch 1, sc in first st, sk 2, *5 dc in next st, sk 2, sc in next st, sk 2*. Repeat from * to * across row. Sc in last st.
Row 5: Turn, ch 3, 2 dc in first st, sk 2, sc in next st, sk 2, *5 dc in next st, sk 2, sc in next st, sk 2*. Repeat from * to * across row. 3 dc in last st.
Rows 6 – 29: Continue alternating the pattern from rows 4 and 5. After last row, bind off and weave in ends.
Lay rectangle out flat with right side up.
Fold in half, lining up edges. Sew short sides together to create the scarf.
