Crochet Pattern: Faux Fabric Circle Scarf

I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!). One of my best friends loves stretchy, jersey-style infinity cowls. This year, I decided to make her a crochet version as a holiday gift.

Back in November, I took a trip to Saratoga Springs for work, and I had a chance to visit Common Thread and pick up a skein of Holiday Yarns FlockSock Sock yarn in Wolverine. This color is a blueish gray that is perfect for my friend’s mostly neutral color palette.

Using a much larger than recommended sized hook and crocheting into the back loop only creates a gently textured and super stretchy fabric.

The finished circle scarf is long enough to wrap around twice. It’s very lightweight and breathable, too. Because it’s so stretchy, you can also block it to be a bit longer, if you’d like. (If you’re new to blocking, you can find tips and tutorials here.)

I had so much fun wearing this, I almost didn’t want to give it away… but it was the perfect gift for my friend so I did say goodbye.

Faux Fabric Circle Scarf

Crochet Pattern by Underground Crafter

Updated 12/7/2023

02-easy 50
US terms 50

Sock yarn, a larger than recommended crochet hook, and a textured stitch pattern create a stretchy as fabric infinity scarf.

Finished Size

  • Teen/Adult: 7” (18 cm) wide x 49” (124.5 cm) long (unblocked).


  • Holiday Yarns FlockSock Sock yarn (75% Merino wool/25% Nylon, 3.5 oz/100 g, 400 yd/366 m) – 1 skein in Wolverine, or approximately 400 yd (366 m) in any super fine weight yarn.
  • US G-6/4 mm crochet hook, or any size needed to obtain gauge.
  • Yarn needle.


  • 21 sts x 10 rows in pattern = 4” (10 cm). Exact gauge is not critical for this project. Stitches should be loose and stretchy.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern

  • BL – back loop only – Fiber Flux has a helpful video tutorial for identifying the back loop in crochet here.
  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • rep – repeat
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • * Rep instructions after asterisk as indicated.

Pattern Note

  • To make scarf wider or narrower, add or subtract multiples of 2 sts from the foundation chain. To make scarf shorter or longer, reduce or continue the repeats of Rows 2-3.

Pattern Instructions


  • Ch 40, or any even number of sts.
  • Row 1: Turn, skip 2 ch (counts as first hdc, here and throughout), *dc in next ch, hdc in next ch; rep from * across. (39 sts)
  • Row 2: Turn, ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), *hdcBL in next st, dcBL in next st; rep from * across.
  • Row 3: Turn, ch 2, *dcBL in next st, hdcBL in next st; rep from * across.
  • Rep Rows 2-3, 60 times, or until scarf measures approximately 49” (124.5 cm) long. Do not fasten off.


  • Fold in half so that short edges are together. Match up sts on each side. Seam together short edges with slip stitch seam (see video below).
  • If you can’t see the video above demonstrating seaming with the slip stitch, click HERE to watch it on Facebook.
  • Fasten off.
  • Turn right side out so seam is on the inside.
  • With yarn needle, weave in ends.

  1. Dear Marie,

    your Free pattern: Faux Fabric Circle Scarf is very nice. I made one scarf. It will not be the last. I showed the scarf on Facebook and many of my friends want to make this scarf, too. But most of them are not so good in english. If you allow, I translate the pattern in German.
    It would be nice, if I can do this.
    Please give me a response.
    Sorry, my English is not good.

    Kind regards,

    Sonja Trautner
