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.

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 love seeing the people I care about smile and gifting them with something handmade is one way to do that. Infinity scarves knit up so quickly and are always appreciated.

I love the way they not only keep your neck warm but they are a beautiful way to add a stylish excessory to your outfit plus I love knitting them.

They're versatile. So many varieties, long or short!

Love making scarves.

Infinity scarves are so easy to wear and fun to make!!! Great list.

I love that they feel like you are getting a hug the whole time you are wearing one, they're so snugly. I also love how beautiful they are and can be worn with most anything. They are a joy to make as well.

I like the infinity scarves.

I love the ones that are really wide, and not too long. I have 3 like this that I use as miniskirts with leggings and a long sweater.

I've been making infinity scarves for my bike-riding friends and they adore them!

With many sisters, nieces and grand-nieces. I love to see them in my handy work.

Infinity scarves are one of the most forgiving projects... and make me look like a more proficient knitter than I probably deserve. Yay!

Infinity scarves are my daughters favorite. She wears one nearly every day.

I love that they can wrap cozily around the neck without coming open or "undone", and you can't lose them )

I love infinity scarves because they stay around your neck without falling off. You can either wear them double or single.

I like infinity scarves because they stay in place and don't fall in your food.

Classy looking - really make the outfit.

They can't fall off my neck, and I can make them out of any kind of yarn and pattern.

I love working on round needles. Spent my winter making baggy hats... now it's time for matching infinity scarves.

I love not having loose ends dragging along and keeping in place to stay warm!

I love making scarves in the first place, but I like infinity scarves because they can be any length, keep your neck warm in colder weather, look good with a winter coat, and really make statements when just worn over your everyday clothes long or short. Really makes your appearance "pop" with I love to do.

I love them because one side doesn't get pulled or out of place like a normal scarf. They are also fashionable

I love the colour it brings to my face and the fact that I don't have to worry about ends!

A pleasure to knit and to wear. Keeps me war.

They look classy, neat, professional. No ends hanging or getting hung in the car door, dragging around on the floor as your scarf falls off your coat...

Easy to make for friends and family and they all love them!

I love how filmy, intricate and delicate the spring infinity scarf is. It appears to be so lightweight that you'd barely feel it on. It would go well dressing up an outfit whether it were a night on the town or heading to lunch with a friend. Beautiful...just beautiful. Can't wait to put it on my needles.

Best thing ever knitted! They never fall off.

THey do not constantly have to be readjusted.

They are so versatile wrapped in many different ways they are a high fashion necessity

I always feel safe a cozy. When I tuck my nose in, it's like being in bed.

Any kind of yarn or fabric can be created with an infinity scarf pattern. From delicate lace to bulky weight yarns. If you want a challenge or just need a fast gift. Infinity scarves are it!

These scarves are so easy to knit or crochet and work up so fast-such a pretty thing to throw on on a cold day!

I love these, they are so fast and easy to knit. I always make them throughput the year and in the fall I have a box full for the homeless.

I like that they stay in place and look good in any weight of yarn.

Since I am cold natured, infinity scarves are perfect for added warmth and the can be worn with so many different styles for a new look. Hope they never go out of style!

What I love most about infinity scarves is their versatility....you can wear them in so many different ways that it looks like you have this huge wardrobe of scarf accents.

Infinity scarves are ideal projects for beginning knitters.

I love making infinity scarves, They are in fashion and with all the pretty yarns out there the textures and the colors the scarves really are pretty, besides I like that you can not get hung up on anything like a long scarf. They are easy to take along to.

I enjoy making scarves. A quicker way to try a new stitch. Infinity scarves work up quickly.

What's not to love about them. They are flattering on everyone! They stay in place even with quick movements, they don't fall down or come undone when you bend over and they stay in place over the head when worn as a hat/scarf combo.

I love how they stay in place, not having ends that fall off my shoulders.

My favorite thing about infinity scarves is that you never have to worry about how to wrap or tie them. Thanks for offering this nice giveaway!

I like that infinity scarves won't fall off your shoulders constantly!

What do I NOT love about infinity scarves is the better question? My favorite thing about winter is sweaters and scarves. So cozy!

What do I love most about infinity scarves? They're so easy to throw on and run out the door in! I mean, I could go on for INFINITY about them, but...you know...

Okay, seriously, infinity scarves are the best thing ever. They're beautiful scarves without the flailing ends of a normal scarf. They are easy to wrap and go. I like that they loop twice unlike cowls, because cowls can be so finicky with how they lay. Just, infinity scarves are amazing. I have so many. I once knitted an infinity scarf and it took two years but gosh darn it, it was worth it. Because it's an infinity scarf. They are the best. The absolutely best. And they're simple to make because they're a big rectangle with the ends sewn together usually. Gauge usually isn't critical. I love them. That is all I think.

Love this scarf pattern. Infinity scarves are really nice, and they go with everything. Very comfortable to wear.

Infinity scarves are so comfy and versatile!

What I love about infinity scarves is that the possibilities are endless...because, you know...infinity. Also, they're less bulky than traditional scarves and they're typically way faster to make!

I love that they don't come untied. I feel like traditional scarves are also more difficult to drape - I always feel like the ends look weird.

I love infinity scarves because they are so much cozier than traditional scarves. They also look a little more polished than normal scarves because you don't have to worry about the tails!

I am trying to find Knitting Patterns for Toy Food items - knitting them for a Group of special small children, anything help in this matter will be very appricated.

My favorite thing about infinity scarves is that they're so easy to knit!! Perfect for beginners. And I ALSO love that you can style them in multiple ways, so they're versatile and cozy.

I love infinity scarves because they are cozy and cute! Plus, traditional rectangle scarves are a little more awkward to wear and can come untied. Infinity scarves are also a great way for beginners like myself to get into knitting.

I feel like the neck-warmth-to-fashionable-ness ratio is on point for infinity scarves, something that is sometimes lacking with "regular" scarves. Poor regular scarves.

I love infinity scarves because they always look great without having to tie them! You can just wrap them and go.

I love infinity scarves way more than regular scarves. It's easier to make them wrap around your neck and achieve ultimate cozy. Plus, they won't fly off your neck when strong winter winds hit you in the face.

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//www.stitchandunwind.com/knit-cowl-pattern-fr == 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 stitchandunwind.com and click "Full Patterns," the cowl you are looking for will be at the bottom of the first page. Thank you!

What if I don't have an ebook How do I get the patterns?

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!
