Rainbows and Rain Clouds Infinity Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

Rainbows and Rain Clouds Infinity Scarf is the perfect way to combine bright colors with a neutral gray. Fall is fast approaching and that means scarves, hats and mittens are on our hooks! This is a fast and fun project that would compliment any fall and winter outfit.

I bought some of the Big Twist Rainbow Classic yarn when it was on sale with no real project in mind for it. It became a challenging yarn to work with because the yarn changed color with every stitch and made for a busy looking yarn. To tone this beautiful yarn down I decided to do stripes with a neutral grey and I just love the results. Add a little raised texture and this scarf took on a very unique personality. Now let;’s get this project started!

Notes

I do not count my turning chain as a stitch.

You will not turn at the end of each row.

Not every row is worked in the third loop.

I carried my yarn up the inside of the scarf to avoid having extra ends to weave in.

    That’s lovely.
    Spookily, I started a crochet project just the other day (must be the change in the weather!) with a vibrant multi coloured yarn, I started mixing it with a grey but mine was too pale so I switched it for black. I’m still working out if I love it enough to carry on or if it needs a do over! Now I’m seeing your grey with the brights I’m thinking maybe I should give the grey another chance as it looks so good together!

            If you are talking about the hdc in third loop video, there two ways it can be worked, by turning and by working in the round. The scarf works in the round. I am working on a sweater that uses the hdc in the third loop and has you turn.

    I have to say this is one of the best written patterns I have seen. Every thing a person needs is considered. So refreshing to see work that I do not have to edit to understand. Your written pattern is clear and concise. I love your scarf. I will use this to each my granddaughter how to make an infinity scarf. Just lovely.
