How To Crochet the Pavement Infinity Scarf (stitch by stitch)



The Pavement Infinity Scarf is a v-stitch infinity scarf crocheted with bulky yarn.

Remember this scarf?


Several of you have had different questions since I first shared it a while back, so I thought a stitch by stitch tutorial might be fun!



The original Pavement was worked up in Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick and Quick, but any super bulky yarn will do.  For this tutorial I chose Lion Brand's Hometown USA yarn in the "Tampa Spice" colorway, another one of my favorites...so super soft and isn't that color fabulous?


So, begin with super bulky yarn and an N (9.0 mm) crochet hook,




Begin with a slip knot and chain 19.



In the fourth chain from the hook, work a double crochet.



Next, chain one and work another double crochet all in the same chain.  This is the first "V" in our v-stitch sequence.



Now skip two chains.  In the next chain, work a double crochet, chain one, double crochet...all in that same chain...second "V" complete!



Keep going across in this manner making "Vs" Skip two chains, double crochet, chain one, double crochet in the same chain...



Until you reach the end of the row.  You'll have 6 "V"s.



Let's move on to row 2.  Chain three as shown below:



Turn your work,



In the middle of the first "V" from the previous row (the chain 1 space), create a "V" the same way by working a double crochet, chain one, double crochet...all in that same space.



Continue in each "V" all the way across until you get to the turning chain (chain 3) from the previous row...six "V"s across.



In the turning chain space, work just one double crochet to finish off the row.


Continue making your scarf as long as you'd like it to be by repeating row 2.



You can make your scarf as long as you'd like for it to be, long or short.  When you are finished, you can make it a traditional scarf or seam it together to make it an infinity scarf.  Happy crocheting everyone!

  4. Great pattern! Just made my first ever scarf using it and it looks great. Would you recommend blocking it?

    1. I didn't block the one shown above...if you used wool or another natural fiber and really want to "open it up" you could try doing that, I was happy with the way mine looked, so I left it as is. :)

  15. Your 'print friendly' link is NOT friendly. It printed 11 (eleven) pages. You should at least provide a menu to print only certain pages.

    1. Hi there, if you "hover" over the areas that you don't want, a delete button will pop up, that way you can take off exactly what you don not want and keep just what you need. Hope that helps...

  21. Hi Jennifer. Thank you for this pattern. Am just finishing one I made with a dk weight yarn, and am getting ready to make one out of a super bulky 100% merino wool yarn and do not have a tapestry needle that would accomodate such a bulky yarn.
    My question: how do you stitch the ends together? Thanks so much a beautiful, and easy pattern.

  22. Hi Jennifer. I really like the simplicity of this scarf, however I just made one for my daughter who loved it but said it was too bulky once she put it on. So my question is how can I make it less thick, does that require more chains in the beginning? Also my 13 yr old granddaughter would like one so how would I create this for her? Thank you for your help

  23. Hi Jennifer. I made this scarf for my daughter and loved the simplicity of it. My questions are, after she put it on she found it too bulky for her so how would I thin this out? Do I start with more chains in the beginning? Also my 13 yr old granddaughter would also like one so how would I adapt it to her? Thank you for your help
