Hi everyone! We have Danielle McQuillen this time round to share with us on how to crochet an infinity scarf from the SLYTHERIN HOUSE! Woot woot!!
Today we’re crocheting an infinity scarf, Slytherin House style in honor of Alan Rickman (may he rest in peace, wonderful man).
What you’ll need:
1 skein silver(gray/whatever) yarn
1 skein dark green
1 crochet hook (I used 3.75 mm)
needle if you like to thread your tails that way
To start, make your slip knot and create a chain of 10. Yes, that’s narrow for a scarf, I personally get warm very quickly so I don’t like mine all that wide, but you can make yours as wide as you like. You do 7 rows of the silver color (I started with the silver because it showed up better on my camera) and when you get the end of the 7th row, we need to change to the green.
To do so, when you’re on the final stitch of the 7th row, don’t pull the silver yarn through the 2 loops you have on your hook. This is where you take the green yarn, create a loop roughly a few inches, depending on the width of scarf. Pull that loop through the two silver on the hook and taking the tails of the sliver and green, pull them tight to secure the new color.
You will then cut the silver, leaving a tail about the same length as the green tail. Make one chain with the working green yarn, then turn your work. You’ll want to put the silver and green tails against the back of the stitches you’ll be crocheting through.
Taking your hook, insert into the first stitch, making sure to go under the tails. Yarn over, pull it through, and create your next stitch, which secures/crochets the tails into place. Continue on to the end of your row, trimming the last bit of the tails if you choose to.
The pattern is pretty simple, 7 rows of each color until you get to your desired length. I made mine almost like a necklace.
One you get to the very last stitch, which will be the 2nd color (in this case, green), you cut a tail, pull it through the loop to make that end knot.
What I do is line up my ends, take my crochet hook and just weave it all together. I know many use needles, but I prefer my hook.
Once the tails are pretty well woven, I make another small knot and we’re good to go!
Yay! You’ve got yourself an Infinity Slytherin Scarf!
