One of my most favorite crochet stitches is the houndstooth! I love the visual texture it offers and I just really love the houndstooth pattern.
Today I’m sharing with you this awesome houndstooth infinity scarf pattern. One thing you will quickly notice is how I didn’t use the traditional black and white color scheme. Instead, I opted for a more earth-tone look. I had these two skeins of green and oatmeal and felt they were a perfect color match for this project!
WHAT I USED/DID:
- size K hook
- 1 skein of hunter green
- 1 skein of oatmeal
- tapestry needle
Row 1: Chain 30. Sc in second ch from hook, dc in next ch, *sc in next ch, dc in next ch; repeat from * across (change color and see special instructions for changing color) ch 1 and turn (22 sts)
Row 2: sc in first dc, dc in next sc *sc in next dc, dc in next sc; repeat from * across (change color and see special instructions for changing color) ch 1 and turn (22 sts)
Repeat Row 2 until you have the length desired. Once you have the desired length, you will want your last row to end with the opposite color. For example, if row 1 was black, you will want the last row in the scarf to be ivory. Leave a long tail and fasten off.
***When changing colors do not cut your yarn! Instead, on your last dc, work the dc as normal but when you have the 2 loops left on your hook this is where you will want to change your color and then YO and draw through both loops on the hook then continue with the instructions. You will then just take the unused color and crochet it along in the row. It will allow for a sturdier scarf and save you from weaving in all the ends! You will be changing color at the end of each row.
One thing you will love about the houndstooth pattern is how simple it is! It is only a two-row repeat and you will have it memorized after the first two rows. As I always say, I LOVE patterns like this! They help you not get discouraged and keep you on target to finishing the actual project.
