Pocket scarves are all the rage right now, and infinity scarves have been popular for years. This Pocket infinity scarf crochet pattern uses a clever way to combine the two types of scarves into one. Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, and sizing information.
A Pocket Infinity Scarf Perfect for Cake Yarns
Cakes yarns with built in stripes are a perfect choice for this pocket infinity scarf. Just crochet a one row repeat and let the colors change when they change and you will have perfectly striped scarf. This tub scarf opens up in two places to allow you to stick your hands in to keep them warm.
Easy to Adjust + A Beautiful New Stitch
This pocket infinity scarf has a very simple design and is mostly a one-row repeat. You can easily adjust the width of the scarf by adjusting the starting chain and adjust the length by working more or fewer rows.
What do you think of the texture of this scarf? It uses half double crochet worked in the third loop or middle front bar. We are turning at the end of every row, placing the third loop on the front of our work. Follow the instructions below to learn how to crochet this stitch or watch the video tutorial.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Half Double Crochet in the Front Middle Bar – Instead of working your half double crochet under the front and back loops of a stitch, we will insert our hook under the bar on the front of our work in the middle of the stitch as demonstrated in the photos below.
Crochet Pocket Infinity Scarf
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
– Make sure to turn at the end of every row.
– To adjust to a smaller size just work fewer rows for the pocket and scarf.
CH 50 SLST to the first CH to make a ring. (Be careful not to twist your chain.)
Row 1: CH1, HDC in each CH. SLST to first HDC. (50 HDC)
Rows 2-38: CH1, turn, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of every ST. SLST to first HDC.
Row 39: CH1, turn, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of next 13 STs, CH 24, Skip 24 STs, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of last 13 STs, SLST to first HDC.
Note: Row 39 creates our second pocket opening.
Row 40: CH1, turn, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of next 13 STs, HDC into next 24 CH, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of last 13 STs, SLST to first HDC.
Rows 41-102: CH1, turn, HDC in the Front Middle Bar of every ST. SLST to first HDC.
You can easily adjust the length of the scarf by adding or subtracting rows. After working 102 rows, fasten off leaving a 24-inch yarn end. We will use this yarn end to sew the two open ends together.
Sewing your Scarf Together
We will only sew half of the openings close, leaving the other half open for the second pocket opening.
First, Place your two open ends together so that the seams line up and the scarf is not twisted. Then, use the yarn end to sew in one direction for 13 stitches, turn and sew back to the seam. Sew in the other direction 13 stitches, then sew back to the seam. I used an invisible stitch but a whip stitch will work as well. Here is a video on how to sew crochet pieces together in case you need it.
Once your crochet infinity pocket scarf is sewn together, just weave in your ends and you are ready to wear it!
