Neon Lights Infinity Scarf for Girls
I recently received some sample yarn from Red Heart Yarns and I was so excited when I saw this beautiful skein of Red Heart Medley. It’s colorful and exciting! I couldn’t wait to make something with it. I wanted to make a beautiful cowl but since I only had one skein, I ended up making something for Kaylee for the fall/winter. The Neon Lights Infinity Scarf was born! It’s smaller than a regular infinity scarf (since it’s for a little girl) but with some more yarn, you can easily make a larger one using the multiple and gauge found in the pattern. The pattern is super simple and works up in less than an hour. I hope you enjoy this quick, one skein pattern! Happy Crocheting! (P.S. – Isn’t my model the cutest??? :D)

Happy New Year! I love this scarf, and your daughter is very cute. I want to make this for my toddler twin nieces, do you have a hat pattern that goes with this scarf? Thanks!!
Hi Sandra! Unfortunately I don’t have a pattern but my friend Rhondda at Oombawka Design has a ton of hats that would go great with this scarf 🙂 https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/category/oombawka-design-free-crochet-patterns/hats
Thank you fo rthe free pattern. I am planning to make this for my duaghter. Will share a pic soon. Could you please tell me if the girl in the picture is wearing it doubled around the neck or only once ??? Is it with chain 70 ?????
Hi! The scarf is doubled around my daughter’s neck and was made with the pattern that is shown. She was about 3 years old in this photo.
Thank you. Your daughter is cute.❤️️❤️️
Thank you! 🙂
I see that you have the length of the scarf at 18 inches? I can’t seem to make anew infinity scarf out of this length.
Hi Ali, if you would like to make an adult-sized scarf, you will have to make a longer chain. This is a kid-sized infinity scarf 🙂
Do I.need to slip stitch to begin each new round?
Hi Jei! This pattern is worked in a continuous round so you will not be joining at the end of each round. You can just place a stitch marker in the last stitch of each round to mark the end of the round.
Love this pattern
Thank you so much Victoria! It’s one of my favorite projects because the yarn is so pretty and it only uses one skein!
i love this scarf. absolutely original and unique for girls.
I love this scarf. My grandaughter would be so happy with this. Thanks.
Hi, i want to make this cowl, I’ve only got chunky wool. would it still work out the same as yours?
Hi Lynn! Do you know what weight category your yarn is? The one I used is a chunky 5. If yours is also a category 5, it will work out pretty much the same. If it’s thicker, you might need to adjust your hook and the amount of yarn you need.
hey. yes, it’s a chunky 5 too. brill! thank you. Can’t wait to get started now.
That’s great! I hope it turns out well!!
I don’t have that type of yarn on hand. How would I adjust this for a medium worsted weight yarn? What hook should I use? I’m still new to crocheting and this seems so easy!
Hi Donna! If you are going to use ww yarn, I would suggest a size 5.5mm hook. To make this to size, you would have to chain a longer chain in multiples of 2+2. I hope that helps!
HI, I’m interested in making this scarf using a different yarn & hook size … how can I do this?
Hi Sandra! If you are unsure about your yarn/hook choice, I would suggest making a test swatch so that way, you can get a feel for what it will look like without committing to the project. I hope that helps!
After chaining the 72 do I slip stitch then do round 1? I’m not sure whether to slip stitch or not after the 72. Also round 1 says chain one then sc in the next chain. So chain 1 , skip the first stitch since that chain count as first stitch ,stitch the second and go around and stitch the 70?
If you refer to line 1 of the pattern. after the ch 72, it says to sl st into the first ch. Yes, you will sc into the next ch, not the same ch that you joined together.
Thanks for sharing this pattern. Can’t wait to try it out! I do have a question, though. I’m trying to understand what i would do if i were to do a foundation chain. What do you mean by…Multiple: 2+2 for foundation chain?
Hi Lydia. The multiples are if you want to make a bigger scarf since this one is sized for a little girl. You would chain a multiple of 2 and then add 2 more chains when starting the pattern.
Thank you so much for your help! Can’t wait to try it out! ☺
You’re welcome Lydia!
I know that this pattern is meant to be for a child but I was looking for one for myself. I made the pattern doubled sized to fit me, and it worked. I love how it looks this is a great pattern
That’s great Nicole! I only had one skein so I had to make a small one but it’s definitely a pattern that can be modified for an adult. Glad you like it! 🙂
Thank you, I was looking for an easy cowl. If I want to make one for an adult how many should I chain. I fairly new to crocheting, I get confused with gauges.
Hi Christine. I would just chain a multiple of 2 until you have the desired length and then add 2 chains.
Not good at figuring out the gauge. How long a chain for a adult scarve please?
Hi Carol. I would just chain a multiple of 2 until you have the desired length and then add 2 chains.
Love your model!!!☺ Going to try this for my granddaughters!!! Thank you!!!
Thank you Jo! Enjoy the pattern! It’s super quick and simple 🙂
