The Filet Infinity Scarf is a very fast and easy way of using up some leftover yarn. In my case, I used some leftover caron cake I had from a while back that I always wanted to use, be never found the right project for it. Well, even though this specific caron cake color combo was discontinued, you can pretty much use you caron cake or worsted weighted yarn for this free pattern.
The scarf which I call the Filet Infinity Scarf, is short in circumference so it is meant for spicing up your outfit. However, you can easily make the scarf much longer by adding more chains in the beginning which then turns the Filet Infinity Scarf into a scarf that can be looped around your neck multiple times.
The pattern features the stitch called the Filet Squares which is all about double crochets and some extra chains in some places to make these window like squares in between walls of dense double crochets.

As some of you prefer a video tutorial, I created a full video on the Filet Square stitch. I also have the free written pattern below as well as a link for you to purchase the pdf of this pattern if you choose to.
So let’s get right into what you will need in order to make the Filet Infinity Scarf
Materials (click the names below to see which ones I used!):
- less than 1 Caron Cake (the one I used was discontinued, so any color combo works)
- 5.0mm hook
- tapestry needles
4 dc’s x 2 rows = 1 square inch
Stitches used (US terms):
- ch = chain
- dc = double crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
30 inches in circumference and 6.5 inches tall
This stitch is made using a multiple of 12. So if you like to make this pattern larger, just add a multiple of 12 stitches to the chain number mentioned below.
For the infinity scarf, make a chain of 96, but you can also make it longer so you can wrap it around you neck multiple times, just remember the multiple count for this stitch.
Sl st to the first ch to make a loop.
The turning chain does not count as a stitch.
Round 1: Ch 2, 1 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook, 1 dc in the next 6 chs, [ch1, sk 1 ch, 1 dc in next ch] repeat 3 times, *1 dc in each of the next 6 chs, [ch1, sk 1 ch, 1 dc in next ch] repeat 3 times, repeat from * all around, sl st to the first st

Round 4 – 6: ch 2, 1 dc in the first st, ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 dc in the next dc, [ch1, skip 1 st, 1 dc in the next dc] twice, 1 dc in the next 6 sts, *[ch1, sk 1 ch, 1 dc in next dc] repeat 3 times, 1 dc in the next 6 sts, repeat from * all around finishing with 5 dc’s not 6, sl st to the first st
