The Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf is indeed the stuff dreams are made of. Dreams of bright, bold hues, ultra-modern color blocking, super chunky scarves and cowls, and infinite possibilities!
Once the crochet pattern idea for the Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf came to me, it demanded to be made. I started it late one night, and had it finished by the middle of the next - a neon fever! And it packs a COLOR PUNCH!
It's long enough to wear a variety of ways, but anyway you wear it, it's sure to get you noticed!
Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf
Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue
- US - I hook, 5.5mm
- 460 yds (8.9oz) total worsted weight yarn, in 5 colors (Bernat Handicrafter shown, approx. 92 yds of each)
- Stitch marker (optional)
- Gauge: 14 sts x 7 rows = 4" in pattern
- Size: 8" wide x 78" long (before joining ends to create infinity scarf)
- Notes and Tips:
- I've written the pattern in standard format, starting each row with a ch 3, which counts as the first st of the row. However, I recommend using the Chainless Starting Dc instead for an even better result!
- After Row 1, dc into the ch sp when appropriate, rather than the ch itself.
- Every row will have 28 sts, including the chain sts.
- If you use a st marker to mark the side of every Row 19 repeat, it will make counting rows to stay on pattern easier.
Written Instructions: (scroll down for chart!)
Row 1: With Color A, ch 30. Dc in the 4th ch from the hook (3 ch counts as first st). Dc in the next ch. [Ch 2, skip 2 ch, dc in the next 7 ch] twice. Ch 2, skip 2 ch, dc 5. Turn. (28 sts including chs)

The Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf Chart:
Now it's time to play! Wear it long and loose, wrap it around and around, tie it in a knot, pull it over the shoulders as a wrap - the Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf is ready for whatever you dream up! It's fun in neon brights, but would be lovely in autumn colors, cool blues, jewel tones - whatever palette pushes your On button. I can't wait to see what you all do with it!

Holy WOW! I am in love <3
Thanks so much Kim! 😀
For Rows 110 - 136, shouldn't we join Color E instead of Color C again?
Thank you for the free pattern, can't wait to make this baby up! I am scarf addicted! like I may need a 12 step program... lol
Have a great day!
Whoops! Thank you - I'll fix it now!
This is awesome! I can't wait to make one! You've been featured on my blog this week!
😀 Thanks so much Kristin!
Love this pattern! ty so much!
I love all your crochet patterns that you have done but my favorite one is your Scoody. I have made at least 10 of them so far. And they are all different as well. Thanks so much for that pattern.
Another MUST make! And perfect timing as I just finished a project a couple days ago and needed something new to start tomorrow.
beautiful! It would be perfect for the chilly evenings we are having here at the moment!
Thank you Angela!
I love all of your patterns. I love crocheting gifts for my friends and I use many of your designs. What I love is that you show so many ways of how the scarves can be worn.
Thanks for sharing!!!
Thank you Scotia! I'm so glad. 😀
LOVE the Blackberry Salad stripes, blanket and bonnet. Made the bonnet in red, white, and blue and it is adorable!
I would really like to make something like this in Christmas colors, but the total would only be four stripes ( red, white, green, white) or eight (red, white, green, white, red, white, green, white). Any suggestions?
Sure! The scarf is 136 rows long, so to make it in 4 colors I would change colors every 34 rows or so instead - it's basically an 18 row repeat, so it's just a matter of shifting the color breaks around. 🙂
I love the scarf pattern and the beautiful colors. I REALLY want to win the book!!!
I love the scarf and the beautiful colors! I REALLY want to win the book!
I love it!
Love it Tamara! Beautiful.
i hope one day i will be able to crochet like you
I've been at it for over a decade! Someday I should dig up some of the messes I made while learning...
I tried this pattern and my scarf was not coming out correct. Do the skip two and chain two line up? Mine were not and I didn't always have 28 stitches sometimes I had less. I tried this several different times and could not get it. What was I doing wrong?
The 28 includes the chains, and the ch 3 at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch as well. Whenever you skip two, you also chain two. The "holes" created by the skip 2/ch 2 should form a repeating diagonal pattern across the width of the scarf. I'll try to add a chart!
Do you have any suggestions on making this a two-color scarf? I would love to do this in school colors. This would be so awesome to send to my college kids...or make one to wear to my hometown football games.
Cay, since it's 136 rows, you could do the first 68 in one color and the last 68 in the second, or change colors every 34 rows for 4 blocks of color!
Thank you for sharing this great pattern. I know some teens who will be getting this for Christmas!
Great scarf! Perfect colour balance. And I love the chart too. (I've been playing around with using free drawing software to chart crochet - it looks very nice but takes forever. I keep thinking that I could draw the darn thing by hand in ten minutes.) 🙂
😀 Thank you Sue! I'm glad the chart works - I tried using photoshop for a few, but you're right, it took ages! I'd like to think I'm getting better at the handmade ones as I go.
are you planning to make a video. I would love it. Thanks so much.
I'll add it to the list erika! 🙂
I just love the Pattern and it looks quite easy. Do you think it would look OK if I used my leftover yarns? I have a lot of partial skeins and I would like to use them up instead of buying more yarn. It would have a stripped effect than blocks.What do you think?
Absolutely! With the chart it should be easy to put the color changes wherever you like! 🙂
It's sooooooooooo great .Thank you very much
😀 Thank you fariba!
I'm working on this scarf right now, its coming out so nice. Thank you for creating this pattern, I love it.
😀 I'm so glad you like it! I wore mine this morning!
I've made up a scarf and am ready to stitch the ends together, do you twist one side to form a moebus ring or join straight? If I join straight it seems like I should frog row 136 to match the diagonal squares pattern. If I twist they do line up but then the pattern reverses. Thanks!
I sewed it straight, but if you prefer a mobius then feel free to give it a twist! 🙂
This is beautiful! I *LOVE* the colors. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
😀 Thank you so much Toqua!
just saw this one hour ago and within half hour hubby went out shopping for yarn for me for two of them! My daughter-in-law and my granddaughter each are going to love having this!!!! Thank you so much!!
😀 Thank you Vicki!

Hi Kelly! Use the green Print Friendly button at the bottom of the post to create a printable copy. 🙂
This is amazing! I'm definitely going to make one. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us!
😀 Thank you Gabriela!
Wondered if tis could be converted to knitting?
Possibly with some dropped stitches? I'm still beginner level at knitting. 🙂
I am currently working. On this for a Christmas present.love. the. Pattern
😀 Thank you Leanna!
I've just started the scarf but since I'm vertically challenged :-). I'm concerned this scarf might be too long.
This one is super long, it's true, but you can loop it 3 times to shorten it up, or just drop one of the color repeats! 🙂
Love this pattern. Am finishing up the first one in an earth tone print yarn and then going on to the brights like you have done! This has become my go to site for fast easy to understand directions. Love the chart. Saved it as a pic on my tablet and makes creating much easier. I was never a fan of chats, but you have made this easy to follow and a joy to create. I always look forward to what you make next.
♥ Oh wow, thank you so much Sandy! That makes my day!
i tried this pattern and it came out great! Each color I did 24 rows. It came out beautifully. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern.?
Thank you so much Tammie! 😀
