Colorful Spring Infinity Scarf Patterns

Spring Lace Infinity Scarf

Brighten up your collection of spring clothes with these light, lacy and colorful designs for circle scarves.  If you're wavering between two yarn choices, just look to nature for some inspiration — new flowers are budding and blooming into life every day during this season that's centered on regrowth.  Once you've settled on a pattern and a yarn, just pair any of these spring knitted cowls with a flowy top and jeans to create a winning combination that's perfect for all your weekend endeavors — or for a drafty day at the office.  My personal favorite is the Cool Breeze Infinity Cowl; this infinity scarf pattern has a basic design that provides an exceptional backdrop for bolder yarn colors.

Fashionable Fall Knit Circle Scarf Patterns

Brioche Rib Infinity Scarf

While it's easy to get swept up in the beautiful hues that autumn brings, let's not forget that the weather is also chilly.  Bundle up in style with these classic patterns that are ideal for a fall climateBeginner knitters can put their skills to the test with the straightforward Cozy Autumn Cowl; while more experienced knitters can build upon existing talents with the attractive Lavender Magic Scarf, which boasts large, twisted cables.

How to Knit an Infinity Scarf for Winter

Stockholm Scarf

When the weather is particularly brutal, it's best to select a chunky circle scarf that can be looped around the neck multiple times to create a dense layer of warmth.  Did I mention that because these patterns require thicker yarn, you'll be able to whip up multiple circle scarves in a matter of hours?  Select your favorite yarn this weekend, sit down with one of these patterns, start knitting and watch as your new accessory begins to come to life right before your eyes.  Now, there are many insulating patterns out there, but if you're having trouble choosing which one to knit first, know that you can't go wrong with any of these fabulous projects below.  Each one, with its unique charm and soft textures, is essential for colder seasons.

I am a complete sucker for a good infinity scarf. I like that these patterns are fairly universal. You can use different weight yarns and get completely different results. These would make stunning and affordable gifts for any occasion! I'm definitely going to knit up a couple as Christmas presents. I'm looking forward to trying the Brioche Rib pattern next!

One of the things I like about a collection like this is, no matter what type of yarn you have on hand you can find a pattern that uses it. So if you just have regular yarn (worsted weight) or you have chunky (bulky) yarn you'll find a fabulous scarf for it!

Loads of infinity scarves in one collection - obviously meant for me. I enjoy knitting almost anything, but the infinity scarf and the cowl have become obsessions I have a basket full of cowls and infinity scarves and no idea what I am going to do with them LOL - more than I have people to give gifts to!! and still I am happy to find more

Red Cross would love them!

These are beautiful. I will be making several for presents as

The best one is the Pure Luxury Scarf

My favorite is Sunset Brioche Cowl

I logged in and you wanted me to rate the scarf. I did and submitted it and nothing happens. I would like to print the pattern and that is not possible. This is not a site that I find helpful for me. the picture of scarf prints, but no directions. Will have to look elswhere. Thanks anyway. Pretty scarves but too much trouble to copy

Hello! I'm sorry you're having trouble printing a scarf pattern. Which pattern, in particular, are you trying to print? In most cases, the pattern will have a "Print" button at the very top which should print the instructions in full. - Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeKnitting

Help! I'm looking for the Ashes to Ashes Cowl pattern featured on the AllFreeKnitting site. The pattern called for 10.5 needles and Bernat Roving yarn in Cobalt and Lazuli.

Hello! The Ashes to Ashes Cowl can be found on our blog, Stitch Unwind. Here is the link http// == om-yarnspirations/ Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeKnitting

The link in my previous comment does not seem to be working. My apologies! If you head to and click "Full Patterns," the cowl you are looking for will be at the bottom of the first page. Thank you!

This is not actually an eBook collection. To find the pattern you want, just click on the pattern and then click through to the blogger's page.

After a bit of touring the site to figure the how's & where's I find it an enjoyable site to collect free patterns. I save all my fave's in the pdf format & print when needed....too kewl!! Thank you for providing awesome patterns in crotchet, knit & loom making. :)

Where do I find this pattern? I am not able to download any instructions

How do you open 12 infinity scarfs to knit?

You should not be asking for credit card info if your patterns are free. Just give the download if it is free.

How come there is no pattern for the one on the third row on the right?

Thank you for this wonderful pattern! It seems so simple to do, but it looks so elegant when it's done. This is a perfect pattern for a somewhat beginner such as myself. I'm going to make one of these for my mom. Thanks again!
