You might be familiar with the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf – it’s one of the most popular patterns ever on Moogly! But there’s one request that pops up from time to time… a scarf with the same great look and style, but two ends (aka, not an infinity)! Well, at long last I present the Artfully Simple Angled Scarf!

The Artfully Simple Angled Scarf uses the same stitch pattern as the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf, but worked in rows instead of rounds. To keep the stitches lined up, there are simple increases at one end, and decreases at the other. This creates these great angled ends! And all with just one skein!
But really, it’s about as simple as the original! And the Artfully Simple Angled Scarf features just as many wearing options – including as a wrap!
I’ve made this one in gorgeous Knit Picks Stroll Tonal Sock, in Wine Tasting. I love the way the hand-painted colors blend and work together, and the large mesh keeps pooling at bay! By making it in fingering weight, it’s light enough for year round wear – so light I can pull the whole thing through my wedding ring! Try a thicker yarn for a winter weight ASAS!

HOW SIMPLE IS IT? THIS SIMPLE!
This pattern can begin with any multiple of 7, plus 4. So you could start with just 11 chains, or 18, or even 704. I’ve included a starting chain count, but I want to encourage you to make this one your own, in just the length you want! Like it’s predecessor, it’s incredibly easy – and there’s NO COUNTING NEEDED! Here’s how:
- Make the slip knot at the beginning a little loose – avoid tightening it up too much.
- Then just chain until you’ve got the length you want, and work the stitch pattern for Row 1, until there’s not enough chains left for another repeat, finishing with the decrease as directed.
- There will likely be 1-6 chains left over. Undo the slip knot (use a tapestry needle to pull it apart if needed), and un-weave the extra chains until you’re at the last finished stitch.
- Pull the end through that last loop to create a new knot at the new “beginning” of your chain! Voila! Go to Row 2!
This technique can actually be used with almost any pattern that calls for a super long chain. As long as you have *enough* chains, you’re golden! Give it a try! Now on to the pattern…
Row 1: Ch 284 (or as instructed above), dc in 4th ch from hook (skipped chs count as 1st dc), ch 5, skip 5 chs, *dc in the next 2 chs, ch 5, skip 5 chs; repeat from * until 2 chs remain, dc2tog over last 2 chs, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc2tog in 1st st and ch-5 sp, ch 5, skip the next st, *dc in next st, dc in next ch-5 sp, ch 5, skip the next st; repeat from * until 1 st remains, 2 dc in last st, turn.
Row 3: Ch 2, 2 dc in 1st st, ch 5, skip the next st, *dc in the next ch-5 sp, dc in the next st, ch 5, skip the next st; repeat from * to last ch-5 sp, dc2tog in last ch-5 sp and last st, turn.
Rows 4 – end: Repeat Rows 2-3 until you run out of yarn or are happy with the width. I stopped at 32 rows, when I didn’t have enough left for another full row.
At that’s it! Wrap it, tie it, wear it over your shoulder for a super light wrap – this is going to be my new favorite crocheted item for traveling! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
