In the previous article I mentioned about the crochet gele hat. It showed you ways how to wear it on the head. This time I will show you how you can wear it around your neck and fashion it many ways. Wear it as the crochet infinity scarf. This is the crochet infinity scarf pattern in the round single extended crochet stitch.
Make it is as a crochet infinity scarf pattern in the round using a stitch I always use called the single extended crochet stitch. First of all, what is it? It is the extended version of the single crochet stitch. We crocheters know how to single crochet. In case you don’t here’s how.
Step 2: Bring yarn over hook from back to front and grab it with hook.
Step 3: Draw hooked yarn through slip knot and onto hook. This makes one chain stitch.
Step 4: Skip the first chain stitch.
Step 5: Insert hook into center of next chain stitch. Draw yarn through the chain stitch and up onto the hook. There are now 2 loops on hook.
Otherwise here is the entire technique.
Repeat Steps 5 and 6 in each of the remaining 27 chains – be sure to work in the very last chain. You have now completed one row of single crochet. Measure your work; it should be about 7″ wide. If it is too wide, try again with fewer beginning chains.
As a result, here is where the extended comes in. Step 6 says to bring yarn over hook from back to front, and draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single crochet stitch.
Instead, bring yarn over hook from back to front. Pull loop through the first loop only. There are 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over again. Draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single extended crochet stitch.
This technique is not new. I learned on Nextitch. However, the website no longer exists.
