Harry Potter Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

by - December 13, 2016




When Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out, I needed to make a scarf that screamed Harry Potter. I made this scarf during the fall, and much to my satisfaction, it screamed "fall" as well! This burgundy and gold blend is so warm and cozy. I decided to make the scarf more feminine by making it into an infinity scarf. This was also super easy, it's only comprised of half double crochets! This is definitely a project to do while watching Netflix (..or Harry Potter!)


If you're looking for a more traditional scarf, you can totally use this pattern to make it just that! 

You can only find the yarn I used at Michael's, but go ahead and substitute any worsted weight yarn that you can find in similar colors. I thought these particular colors in this yarn were perfect.


Let's get started..

Materials:
Loop&Threads Impeccable yarn in Burgundy and Gold, 1 skein each
J hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Pattern:

Start with Burgundy

Row 1: Chain 31
Row 2: HDC into the second chain, HDC in each chain across (30 stitches total across)
Row 3 - 14: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across

Switch to Gold

Row 15 - 28: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Burgundy

Row 29 - 42: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Gold

Row 43 - 56: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Burgundy

Row 57 - 70: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Gold

Row 71 - 84: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Burgundy

Row 85 - 98: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Gold

Row 99 - 112: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Burgundy

Row 113 - 126: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Switch to Gold

Row 126 - 139: Chain 1, HDC in each stitch across (30)

Slip stitch the first and last rows together. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Essentially, you're going to make 14 rows of each color all with HDC. In the end there will be 5 sections of burgundy and 5 sections of gold. After connecting the sides together, I found this scarf fit me very well. If you need to, add one more section of each color with 14 rows each. You can wrap it around before you close it up to see how it will fit.


**IF you want a traditional scarf, do not slip stitch the ends together. Instead add a fringe to each end. I made a smaller version for my son with the fringe that you can see below. Cut three or four 12-inch pieces of yarn, fold in half, loop the pieces through stitch, and pull the tails through. Do this in every other stitch across. Trim to make even. I alternated between gold and burgundy.




TIPS:

Switching colors
There are a few different ways to switch colors while crocheting, but I use a method that does not entail having to tie a knot. 
Below you will see..
1.  I snipped the burgundy yarn after finishing my last HDC in the row and ready to switch colors (leaving about 6 inches of yarn)
2. Pull the gold yarn through the loop on my hook. 
3. Pull the burgundy yarn tight so you have a loop with gold yarn. 
4. Turn your work, chain 1 and place the tail ends of both gold and burgundy parallel to the chain stitches you will be crocheting in to. Go ahead and crochet as usual, making sure to incorporate the tail ends. 
I make sure to crochet over the tail ends for about 10 stitches, keep crocheting and after you're done with that row, you can go back and clip any bits that are poking out.












Slip stitching last and first rows
This is the part that makes your scarf into an infinity scarf.
To slip stitch together, turn your work so the last HDC you made is on the right side.
Lay out the scarf and fold over to match up the ends.
Keeping the loop on your hook, find the first stitch of the row to insert your hook into. Yarn over and pull through. Keep doing that all the way to the end - you should have done this through 30 stitches.
Sometimes it's tricky to find that very first stitch, if your number is less than 30 you will have to go back and do it again so the scarf is not uneven. (If you don't go back, and it looks good enough for you.. I won't tell. I've done it.)




Overall, this yarn is comparable to Red Heart super saver and not the softest. The scarf may be more rigid than desired. Throw it in a lingerie bag to wash, tumble dry low with dryer sheets and you will have a super soft finish!
