I can’t get enough of Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball! It’s such a great size for one skein projects, and this colorway just spoke to me – gorgeous! I was inspired to create a filet mesh arrow pattern that is worked across the whole width of this super cozy and luxurious piece – the Opal Arrows Infinity Scarf!

Here’s a closeup of the filet pattern laid flat. See the arrows created by the mesh? Simple, but appealing, and they give the scarf such great drape!
I really enjoyed plotting out this design – it makes for a very generous cowl! And as I refined the pattern, I realized it only takes a 3 row repeat and one skein – making this the perfect travel project too! And there’s a chart below for those who prefer charts – for this pattern, it really makes it easy!
It’s hard to capture just how sparkly and colorful this yarn is on camera – keep an eye out for it in stores so you can see just how beautiful it really is!
Opal Arrows Infinity Scarf
US – I, 5.5mm hook – Furls Crochet
1 ball Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball (Worsted/”4″/UK: 10 ply; 518 yds/473 m; 5.3 oz)
Colorway Shown: Metallic – Om Opal
Gauge: 17 sts x 6 rows = 4″/10cm in pattern
Finished Size: 10″ wide x 68″ long
Notes and Tips:
If you prefer a longer cowl, you will need to purchase an additional skein of Shawl in a Ball, but you can just continue with the 3 row repeats until you get the size desired.
If you do not like the Chainless Starting Double Crochet (abbreviated CSDC), you can substitute a ch 3 for the stitch.
Do NOT work into the chains from Row 2 on – just work 2 dc into each ch-2 sp.
Row 1: Ch 45, dc in the 4th ch from the hook (skipped 3 chs count as first dc of row), ch 2, skip 2 chs, *dc in the next 4 sts, ch 2, skip 2 chs; rep from * until 2 sts remain, dc in the last 2 sts, turn. (28 dc)
Row 2: CSDC in the first st, dc in the next 3 sts, [ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 4 sts and chs] twice, ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 6 sts and chs, [ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 4 sts and chs] 3 times; turn. (30 dc)
Row 3: CSDC in the first st, dc in the next 5 sts, [ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 4 sts] twice, ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 2 sts, [ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in the next 4 sts] 3 times, dc in the last 2 sts; turn. (30 dc)
Row 4: CSDC in the first st, dc in the next st, ch 2, skip 2 chs, *dc in the next 4 sts, ch 2, skip 2 chs; rep from * until 2 sts remain, dc in the last 2 sts, turn. (28 dc)
Row 5: Repeat Row 2.
Row 6: Repeat Row 3.
Row 7 – 108 (or to length desired): Repeat Rows 4 – 6; break yarn and finish off leaving an 18″ tail.
Assembly: Using long tail, whip stitch the last Row to Row 1 without twisting scarf.
The Opal Arrows Infinity Scarf kept me company through Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, and Utah! And now I just need the weather to turn cool so I can start wearing it. I think it just might be my favorite cowl this year!
Of course, you don’t have to use the Om Opal colorway – the Opal Arrows Scarf can be made with any color! I can’t wait to see what you all do with this pattern – if you share on social media, be sure to tag @mooglyblog – I love seeing your creations!
