Ready to wow your friends and family with the perfect unisex circle infinity scarf you can wear all Winter?
Have you been looking for the internet's easiest snood pattern to crochet?
This free two colour (or more!) crochet cowl is perfect for beginners who are worried about trying different stitches and is super fast to crochet in around an hour or two.
Texture is the name of the game, by using yarns of different weights you can add variation without adding to your stress levels as a new crocheter.
It's simple design means it can be created in any number of colour combinations to match your whole wardrobe and your partners - why not make them for the whole family?
Stitches used (in US Terms): ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), HDC (Half Double Crochet)
Just a note: some patterns refer to the stitches in UK or US terms - although the stitches use the same techniques they are (rather confusingly) named differently.
For example, a chain stitch & a slip stitch is the same in both terms but a single crochet in US terms is known as a double crochet in UK terms!!
ALWAYS check to see if your pattern uses UK or US terms to avoid getting frustrated and more importantly a project that just looks nothing like you had planned!!
If you're not sure about whether your use UK or US terms in your previous projects you can use this really handy sheet to help you

What Materials Do I need to crochet a scarf?
(Yarn A) Bulky Weight Yarn (size5) - approx 200m
I used Stylecraft Special Aran
(Yarn B) Superbulky Weight Yarn (size 6) - approx 80m
I used King Cole Value Super Chunky
12mm Crochet Hook from King & Eye
Do I Need a Gauge Swatch?
I have added a gauge measurement (a 10x10cm square that you work up to test your stitch size) for you to check that your scarf will be a similar size to the measurements above.
In this pattern gauge is not important, which means that if your 10x10cm swatch is bigger or smaller that doesn't really matter, but it may mean that you use more (or less) yarn.
I know it's a step we ALL want to ignore but checking your gauge is a really important habit to get into, as once you progress to more complicated projects it plays an important role in making sure your project is the right size.
Trust me when I say you DON'T want to spend hours creating something beautiful that will only fit your six year old next door neighbour!
Gauge: 6st x 7rows = 4 x 4 inches. (10x10cm)
Notes: Pattern is worked in the round (this means it is worked as a continuous loop so you don't have to worry about joining it together when you've finished and you want to get straight our of the door), a twist is added before the chain is joined to create the mobius effect.
CH2 at the beginning does not count as stitch
If you would like your scarf to be longer you can add extra chains to the foundation.
If you would like your scarf to be deeper you can add extra rows at any stage.
If you would like your scarrf to be more (or less) colourful you can of course add colours at any stage or work it all in one shade
Rnd 1: Using 2 strands of Yarn A (Size 5) held together ch43, lay your chain in a circle on a flat surface and twist it once only, Sl st ends together. Mark the join with a stitch marker. (40)
Rnd 2: Ch2 HDC into the third chain, HDC around. Keep working in the round with this colour for 3 rows, keep moving your stitch marker up as you work each row as it can be difficult to see where your first stitch is when working in the round. (40)
Rnd 3: Switch to Yarn B (size 6), using a single strand HDC around for 4 rows. (40)
Rnd 4: Switch back to two strands of Yarn A. HDC around for 3 rows (40). Sl st at stitch marker.
Tie off, weave in ends and show off your new found crochet skills!
