Q is for Quick Infinity Scarf


Over the past year or so I have developed this love of scarves. I love the way they drape, I love how they can be dressed up or down, they can be just for decoration or they can have a functional purpose. Personally, I tend to be attracted to things that are both functional and beautiful. (Partially why I love yarn so much I am sure of it!) 

Ready for what makes the Q is for Quick Infinity Scarf so great? This scarf is not only functional, and beautiful it is QUICK!!!! I mean less than an hr to make. I don't know how you get any better than that. I really don't. This is the perfect pattern for last minute gifts, or to build stock for a craft show. You can make a lot very quickly yet they are beautiful and don't look rushed.


It gets even better. I made this scarf with one skein of Lion Brand Hometown U.S.A. which means you don't have to get halfway into a new skein and then try and figure out what to do with the left over yarn!

Let me introduce you to where my inspiration came from - this GORGEOUS yarn in the photo below! 


I purchased this yarn from Joy In Rugging, she is a vendor local to me (YEAH!!!! Almost nothing is local to me Lol!) and she was selling some of her yarn at our local yarn store, The Yarn Bard. I loved it as soon as I touched it. The colors, texture, drape, all perfect!! It was a must have. The problem is, I have a terrible habit of buying gorgeous, can't say no to it, yarn and then holding on to it for YEARS waiting for a worthy project to come my way. This time I was determined not to let that happen. I wanted something simple that would show off the yarn and not the stitches so I grabbed my Q hook and started playing around. This scarf appears much larger than the one made with the Lion Brand yarn but it is heavier so it stretched a bit more. If you are interested in seeing what Joy In Rugging has for sale you can check out her Etsy shop HERE. And be sure to follow her on FACEBOOK for information on her new yarn.

  1. Gorgeous! I love using a Q hook. I have a scarf I made with a Q hook and I receive so many compliments on it. I am going to have to make this one for sure!

  2. I inherited my grandmother's old, wooden Q hook. I love it, and loved using it to make my chunky infinity scarf (see http://gocrochetcrazy.blogspot.com/2014/01/chunky-stitch-infinity-scarf.html). Yours is just beautiful, and I love the vibrant purple color! You've made me want to crochet something purple. :)

  3. I just made this today & it turned out fabulous!!! I made it with an M hook & chained 90 since I didn't have a Q hook (and if you're wondering, yes - I do feel a little guilty since it is the name of the pattern!)
    Anyway, my new scarf is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your pattern!

  7. Hello,
    Thanks for the great pattern. I made the scarf with a print of the USA yarn and it took a little more than one skein because the yardage on those is less. any advise on how to weave in the ends on the bulky yarns so it's less noticible

    1. With a yarn needle, and sew it directly into the back side of your sts. I weave in all weights of yarn this way. Much less noticeable and more secure.
