With only two days left in August and Autumn swiftly approaching, I thought I’d better get a jump start on my warm outerwear collection for the year!

When I was shopping for yarn, this beautiful ombre yarn from Caron Simply Soft leaped out at me — visually, not literally. 😉
The vibrant orange hues immediately grabbed my attention. I knew it was the perfect yarn for fall and my next project!
If you haven’t tried Caron Simply Soft, it is exactly what it says it is…soft! It will always be one of my favorites. Not too heavy or thick, perfect for wearables. It’s amazing you guys. I highly recommend it and I’m not an affiliate for them.
Since we are getting ready to go into fall with the slightly cooler temperatures, I didn’t want to make a pattern that was a solid panel or overly warm. Something light and lacy was the best choice for this infinity scarf!
The pattern is a four row repeat and very easy. I found this stitch in my copy of the Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs that has 500 stitch patterns in it! This is my go-to book for inspiration! You can purchase a copy for your own library at the link. I may receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you if you purchase through my link. It helps me to continue to provide free patterns to you, so thank you for your support!

- This infinity scarf is constructed in a long panel. The ends are stitched together in the final step of the instructions.
- If you want a border on the edges to give it a cleaner look, you can always single crochet evenly around both edges, however, there was not enough yarn to do this in 2 skeins. You would have to buy a third skein. So this is optional.

Repeat Row 2 – Row 5 until the piece measures 68”. Finish off. Leave about an 18” – 20” tail for weaving the two ends of the scarf together.
Making sure that the piece is not twisted, hold the two ends of the scarf together and, using the tapestry needle and yarn, whip stitch across. Tie off and weave in any ends.
