The Autumn Sunset Infinity Scarf celebrates the season of beautiful red and orange leaves, ripe pumpkins, apple cider, and cool breezes. The color is all autumn, and the stitches are like a gorgeous row of perfect sunsets.
At 60 inches long, this infinity scarf provides lots of styling options. Wear it long and drapey like a scarf, wrapped double around the neck as a cowl for warmth, or pull a loop up over your head for that sudden chill. Make one for yourself now, and then make more for gifts this winter!

If you’re unfamiliar with cluster stitches, there are a couple of new stitches here for you, and just reading them can make them sound complicated. Look at the pictures and sit down with the yarn and hook, and I think you’ll find that they are very doable. Just pull up your loops to the height of the new st and keep practicing – you’ll have it in no time!
And that’s all there is to the Autumn Sunset Infinity Scarf! This crochet pattern should work with any worsted weight or sport weight yarn – in fact, I started it with Caron Simply Soft and loved the results, but couldn’t get any more of it in the right color, so had to start over with the cotton. And as it turns out I love that just as much! I can’t wait to see what all of you make using this pattern! (And if you call it a cowl or a scarf… talk about controversy!)
