Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf

The Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf pattern is one that I've been excited about for awhile. I worked it up earlier this last fall but didn't get it photographed until recently and I think it's perfect for the chilly January and February's that we have here in the Rockies. We always have a week or two of temps that don't get above freezing and the versatility of the Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf makes it easy to wrap up and keep warm.

Most cowls and scarves aren't tall enough to reach up over your head and keep both your ears and head warm while they are still around your neck. The Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf has enough length to stay rippled and comfy around your neck and also reach up over your head. If you take it down it is a lovely bulky cowl. The stitch pattern repeat is only a few rows making it easy to memorize so you can work it up mindlessly. I hope you enjoy making the Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf for yourself! I would love to see your creations of the Sleigh Ride Hooded Infinity Scarf so please share them with me on FacebookRavelryInstagram or Twitter.

-Please read all notes before beginning the pattern.
-Pattern is worked in the round, no turning.
-The first row is written with a foundation hdc. If you prefer you can use a ch and work into it with hdc stitches.
-Ch 1 and ch 2 at the beginning of the round do not count as sts.
-Instructions are written in toddler with child and teen/adult in parenthesis.  
-Camel St: In a hdc there are the two loops on the top of the stitch and if you fold them towards the front a little there is another loop in the back. This is the loop that you work into. By working into this loop it will fold the other top two loops forward to the front of your work.

Round 1: Fdhdc 88 (96, 128) join in the round with a sl st to first fdhdc. (88, 96, 128 fdhdc)

The next row is done in camel st. Make sure to read the notes for this pattern if this is an unfamiliar stitch to you.

Round 2: Ch 1, hdc camel st in next st, repeat in each st around, join with a sl st to first hdc. (88, 96, 128 hdc)

Round 3: This round is worked in the BLO. Ch 2, dc in same st and in each st around. (88, 96, 128 dc)

Round 4: This round is worked in the BLO. Ch 1, hdc in same st and in each st around. (88, 96, 128 hdc)

Repeat rows 2-4 for 30 (44, 58) rows. Or until desired length.


*Ch 2, sl st to BLO of next st, ch 2, sl st to FLO of next st,* repeat *to* around. Break yarn and weave in ends.

Join yarn to bottom row of scarf, *ch 2, sl st to BLO of next st, ch 2, sl st to FLO of next st,* repeat *to* around. Break yarn and weave in ends. If you started your scarf with a base ch instead of foundation sts then you may not have a front and back loop. In that case you can leave the bottom border off.

Wear your new scarf and enjoy!

  1. Looks lovely! I'll have to try it.

  2. Would this pattern work with Lion Brand Homespun? I have so much of it!

    1. Homespun may not show the texture in the stitches as well but that doesn't mean it can't be done. My biggest concern would be that it is a thicker yarn so it might be challenging to meet gauge. You could possibly make a child's size scarf and wear it as an adult but I can't say for sure without working one up. If you try it out I'd love to see a picture!

    2. You will also need to go up in hook size. I would recommend a J hook.

  3. Baby is very color. I like this composition. I would tie this scarf to my daughter

  4. should row 3 and 4 both be worked in the back loop (BLO) or is one supposed to be front?

    1. Because you don’t turn your work at all when making this scarf both rows 3 and 4 are worked in the BLO. That way the front loop stays of the right side of the scarf.

  5. I am getting ready to make this and am wondering what, if any, changes I need to make if I made it in HL's "I Love This Yarn" or "Red Heart with love"? Thanks! So excited to get started!!

  6. It is time to say that your hooded scarf is very cool and warm. I wear it with a great pleasure.

  7. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting for your further write ups thank you once again. hotmail sign in email

  8. As usually I love your patterns....I've crochet this scarf for myself and my granddaughter...again thanks!

  9. I enjoyed making your infinity scarf. I did in pink for a young girl. I thought I was making it inside out, but the more I got into it the piece, I was, but it looked good. I really liked the pattern and the piece. I will be making it again.
