Mermaid Vibes Infinity Scarf


  • Finished Project Dimensions: 8 inches wide x 27 inches tall after light blocking.

  • Gauge :4 rows in pattern= 2 inches in height. Gauge is not critical for the overall look of the scarf.

  • This infinity scarf is worked flat and joined in the round at the end by slip stitching the first and last rows together. Once joined, the border is added on by working in the round on both the top and bottom edges of the scarf.

  • Throughout the project the yarn is held double. I find that it is easiest to complete double-stranded projects by winding the cakes of the yarn as double stranded cakes from the beginning. Here is how one does that: Wind the hanks of yarn into cakes or balls as you normally would. Once you have your cake of yarn, feed the center-pull end of yarn and the outside end of yarn together through the ball winder and wind a second cake. You will now have a new cake of yarn where the yarn is held double throughout. The outside strand will be a loop—you can cut this if you want but it isn’t necessary. Say goodbye to tangled yarn and dealing with two balls at once during your double-stranded projects!

Step 8 - Mermaid Waves Infinity Scarf

Begin:  Ch 36
Row 1: Dc in 3 rd  ch from hook, ch 2, sc in next ch * skip 2 chs. 2 dc in next ch, ch 2, sc in next ch. Repeat from * across. Turn.
Row 2:  Ch 2, Skip 1 st  st. (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in ch 2 sp. *Skip 3 sts. (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in ch 2 sp. Repeat from * across. Turn.
Repeat: Repeat Row 2 until your work measures 58 inches from beginning.
Joining Work into a Loop:
Turn work as you normally would and Ch 1. With right side of work facing together, join first and last rows with a row of Sl Sts. For me, 2 sl sts per pattern repeat was perfect. Find the number that works for you that does not pucker or leave any gaps in your scarf. If changing color for border, fasten off.
Step 1: Turn work right side out and begin working shell border in the round. You will do this for a total of two times – once for the top and once for the bottom.
Step 2: Join Border color yarn at seam and Ch 1.
Border Row 1: Single crochet 112 stitches evenly around; or any multiple of 4 for shell border to work just make sure to do enough SC so the border isn’t so tight that it’s distorting the scarf. And if you choose to do a number different than 112, make note so both sides are the same. Join with Sl St to first SC.
Border Row 2: Ch 1, Sc in first st, *skip 1 st, 5 DCcin next st, skip 1 st, 1 Sc in next st; Rep from * around, Sc in turning ch, Join to first Sc with Sl St. Fasten off. Repeat steps  on other side of scarf.
