Cross Your Heart Infinity Scarf - Free Pattern

I hope you are enjoying the Cross Your Heart water bottle cover pattern!  I just love the Cross Your Heart stitch and I've been experimenting with ways to wear it.  I have a couple of patterns in the works and I've decided to share one of them with you.


Cross Your Heart Infinity scarf


Supplies:


Red Heart with Love yarn (Iris)
K Hook (6.5 mm)
tapestry needle

Pattern:


Chain 142 (Child), 166 (adult), or a multiple of 3 plus 1. Carefully join to the first chain to complete the loop (Or, if you are like me, you can wait to join until the end of Row 1.  I'm nervous about twisting the chain!)

Row 1: HDC in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across. Slip stitch to the top of the first HDC to join.  (If you did not join the beginning chain, you can do so now using your tapestry needle or wait until the end.)

Row 2: Chain 5 (counts as 1 DC and 2 chains. Skip back one stitch. HDC in the previous stitch (1 Cross cluster created). * Skip forward past 2 empty stitches.  1 DC in the next stitch. Chain 2. HDC back into the previous skipped stitch. * Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch into the top of the chain 2 from the first cross cluster to join.









Row 3: Chain 5 (counts as 1 DC and 2 chains). 1 HDC into the chain 2 space in the previous cross cluster (back to the right). Skip forward to the next empty chain 2 space. (This is the next chain 2 space past the one you crocheted the original DC in).   1 DC, chain 2 in that space.  1 HDC back into the chain 2 space in the previous cross cluster.  Repeat from * to * around, ending with a DC into the chain 2 space from the first cluster, chain 2,  1 HDC back into the previous chain 2.  Slip stitch into the top of the chain 2 from the previous cross cluster to join.

Rows 4-10: Repeat Row 3.  You can also continue to repeat Row 3 if you would like a thicker scarf.

Row 11: Chain 1. 2 HDC in each Chain 2 space and 1 HDC in the space between.  Repeat around.  Join to the top of the first HDC. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Depending on your tension, you may need to block your scarf.  Never fear!  A bit of cold water and a towel will help you to shape your scarf.

    1. Thank you for your patience, Christine. I do not have this pattern in rows. You're welcome to try yourself. I did attempt to do one several years ago, but wasn't able to figure out how to do it. I specifically designed this pattern to work in the round. I wish you the best of luck!
