After working up the Cancer Strong Hat for the Crochet Cancer Challenge, I had some leftover yarn and want to create a coordinating accessory that was practically just as quick to make as the hat. As crocheters, especially those of us who like to donate our makes or gift them to a friend in need, I know it’s easy for us to want to take our gifts one step further and toss in an extra item or two.
I think you’re going to really love how fast and easy this infinity scarf works up! And this pattern is versatile enough that you can work it in one color, use a self-striping yarn, or scraps of many colors. I love how plushy and cozy the oversized yarn is, but the scarf itself can wrap twice around your neck without feeling like you’ve been swallowed by yarn.

Introducing the Cancer Strong Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern
Using super bulky yarn, this infinity scarf is worked in the round. You don’t turn your work at all, which allows for the texture to be identical with each row. I think it makes each round work up a little bit faster too!
With one skein of Lion Brand Hometown Bonus Bundle yarn or two skeins of the regular Hometown yarn, you can make a hat and a coordinating infinity scarf in just a few hours. You can easily adjust this scarf to be any length you want by simply adjusting the number of starting chains. And if you want to make it wider, just keep adding rounds until you get to the width you prefer.
