This pattern is available for free.

For the first part of this pattern you’re going to need to head over to Ambassador Crochet, and follow her Astoria Infinity Scarf pattern until the end, then you’ll come back here for the add-on.

Note: For my remix I used Hobby Lobby’s Soft & Sleek yarn in Teal Stripe, but did a bit of yarn hacking to make it fit my vision. You are welcome to follow the hacking instructions below (yes, yarn cutting is involved), or you may use the green color that the original design calls for. Either way I think you’ll be pleased with the results.

Materials Needed:
5mm (H) hook for add-on
6mm (J) hook for scarf body
4 balls Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek in “Teal Stripe” if you plan to follow the yarn hacking tutorial
If you do NOT plan to hack your yarn, 25-30 extra yards of the main body color should be plenty.
25-30 yards #5 Artiste Crochet Thread in “Chamois”
125-150 yards I Love This Yarn in “Linen”
Teal colored strung glass beads t suck the scarf in along the edges. If you notice your edge is starting to suck in, go up a hook size or two.

Original pattern calls for 60” of length, but if you want a longer infinity scarf, you are likely able to get 72” from 3 balls of the Soft & Sleek, provided you have chosen the balls that have mostly lighter colors in them.

Additional Notes:
-You can use this add-on pattern to trim any infinity scarf or cowl you wish, provided your stitch counts are in multiples of 4.
-Because this pattern uses beads, please do not give this piece to children. It could pose a chocking hazard.
-The original Astoria Scarf calls for a beautiful green yarn, but I used a faded tonal aqua color. If you want to use the same color I did then this project requires some yarn hacking. Yarn hacking is very easy, and you’ll get the hang of it in no time. You will have more ends to weave in, but that’s a minor inconvenience. Note: If you do not want to hack your yarn, “I love This Yarn” in “Mint Lace” will be fairly close in color (just a bit darker), and it is one tone all the way through. You will need 2 skeins.
