Pink Fantasy Infinity Scarf Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern

Sometimes, I’m so overwhelmed with the beauty of a project that I love to just stare at it displayed in my mannequin. Is that strange?

This is one of those projects. It’s the combination of the fine weight yarn and beautiful beads that got me.

Technique: Tunisian Crochet

This lovely infinity scarf is made with a light fingering weight yarn for a beautiful drape without all the bulk of heavier weight yarns.

It’s shown here doubled around the neck, but can also be worn long in the front, more like a necklace.

The beads add just the perfect amount of bling and turn a beautiful scarf into something extraordinary. Never underestimate the power of embellishment.

Due to the nature of the yarn, pre-stringing wouldn’t have been a good option. The beads are added with the individual stitches.

You’ll just need an extra hook, small enough to fit inside your bead. You pull the yarn right through the bead with the smaller hook, then you continue on with the remainder.

If you want to add more beads or less beads, it’s easy to do when you don’t pre-string them. You just get to the position where you want a bead and you add the bead. It’s as simple as that!

Pattern Notes

For this project, the beads are not pre-strung. They are added individually at the time of making the stitch. The stitch used in this project for the bead is Tunisian Simple Stitch.

To maintain a neat edge at the end of a row, insert hook under both the regular vertical bar and the one directly to the side simultaneously before pulling the loop through. See video for more information, as necessary.

Scarf is made flat, then seamed. There may be some curling at the foundation edge which is resolved with blocking.

Finished scarf is shown doubled around neck.

Binding Off

While there is one loop on your hook, insert hook as you would for mod-tss, yarn over and pull loop through, but pull it through the loop on the hook as well. You are creating a slip stitch with a mod-tss insertion. Keep in mind that it’s just a slip stitch and it will be easy to do. You can use a comparable size regular crochet hook for this portion if it makes it easier. Slip stitch in mod-tss insertion across. Fasten off.

Finishing

Without twisting scarf, using yarn needle and yarn, seam short edges of scarf together. Block as desired. Weave in all loose ends securely.
