Here in Iowa, the Winter Storm Warning is a common enough occurrence – but when it comes on a weekend, it’s not always unwelcome. It’s the perfect time to relax by the fire, and crochet something warm for when you do finally have to venture outside again! The Winter Storm infinity scarf was designed and crocheted on one such long weekend, and it was the perfect piece to set the mood for a stormy, snowy winter.

Lion Brand Ice Cream yarn is marketed for babies – and that makes sense, as it comes in bright cheery colors and is crazy soft, washable and wearable. But the Cookies & Cream colorway is a little more sophisticated… a little more grown up. And with it’s shades of grey and white, it reminded me of the layers of snow and clouds in a winter storm, making it the perfect yarn to use for this pattern!

NOTE: This pattern starts with a very long chain. I recommend using stitch markers every so often as you crochet the chain, to help keep count.
Rnd 1: Leaving a long tail before the slip knot, ch 298, skip the 2 chs closest to the hook (does not count as a st), *dc in next 3 chs, skip 2 chs, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch, skip 2 chs; repeat from * to end, join to 1st dc with a sl st; use long tail at beginning to sew bottom of Round 1 closed. (259 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), *fpdc in next 3 sts, skip 2 sts, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-1 sp, skip 2 sts; repeat from * around, join to 1st fpdc with a sl st. (259 sts)
Rnd 3: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), *bpdc in next 3 sts, skip 2 sts, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-1 sp, skip 2 sts; repeat from * around, join to 1st bpdc with a sl st. (259 sts)
Rnd 4 – 32: Repeat Rounds 2 and 3, ending on a Round 2 repeat. Weave in ends.
