The Loopy Love stitch pattern has inspired lots of patterns here on Moogly. But there was one more thing I wanted to try with it – a scarf that suits both men and women! Introducing the Loopy Love Scarf!

The Loopy Love Scarf is versatile, fast, and fun to make! The Lion Brand Scarfie used in this pattern has great long color changes, creating a beautiful gradient effect with only 2 ends to weave in when you’re done. The pattern includes instructions for 3 styles: Cowl, Infinity Scarf, and Standard Scarf – all of which use only one skein!
Loopy Love Scarf
- US-K, 6.5mm hook (Furls Odyssey recommended)
- 190-310 yds Lion Brand Scarfie (Bulky/”5″/12 ply; 312 yds/285 m; 150 g/5.29 oz; Colorway: Cream/Black)
- Gauge: 8 rows x 4 “loops” = 4″ in pattern

Row 1: Ch 23, skip the ch closest to the hook, sc in the next ch,*ch 3, dc in same ch as previous st, skip 2 ch, sc in next ch; repeat from * to end, turn. (7 ch-3 loops)
Row 2: Ch 3, sc in the next ch-3 loop, *ch 3, dc in the same ch-3 loop, sc in the next ch-3 loop; repeat from * to end, finishing last repeat with a ch 2, dc in the last sc, turn. (6 ch-3 loops, 1 ch-2 loop)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first st, ch 3, dc in ch-2 loop, *[sc, ch 3, dc] in next loop; repeat from * to end, finishing last repeat with a sc in the top of the turning ch, turn. (7 ch-3 loops)
Repeat Rows 2-3 to desired length:
For a Cowl, work to 36″ (approximately 72 rows), then whip stitch ends together without twisting.
For an Infinity Scarf, work to 60″ (approximately 120 rows), then whip stitch ends together without twisting.
For a Standard Scarf, work to 60″ (approximately 120 rows), then work one more row as follows: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, sc 3 in each loop across.
Simple, fun, and fast! I was able to whip up the infinity scarf shown in the photos in one afternoon. I love this take on the Loopy Love stitch pattern – using self striping yarn means no color changes and extra ends to weave in, and gives it a look that’s great for both men and women! I hope you enjoy this free scarf pattern!
