The Scarlet Snowberry Infinity Scarf – Free Pattern by MadameStitch
This infinity scarf pattern is just gorgeous!! I am thrilled to have Debbie from MadameStitch come and guest design for me! And her yarn choice was a special one..
You see, back in March I had the fantastic opportunity to go to Colorado, USA and meet up with some fantastic designers. Debbie was one of them! Can you name the other designers in this pic?
What a trip that was! I enjoyed it so much. Anyway, when I was packing to go I wanted to take the other ladies something that they wouldn’t be able to get easily in the USA – I was the only ‘foreigner’ going. So I decided to take them some yarn that while readily available here was not necessarily the case there.
Debbie has designed this infinity scarf with the yarn I selected and took especially for her. And I LOVE what she did with it!
Say hello to the Scarlet Snowberry Infinity Scarf.
Debbie adores the granny stitch, and her designs usually have an element of it in them. This infinity scarf is stunning.
More about Debbie and MadameStitch
My name is Debbie, aka MadameStitch. I absolutely love to crochet! It starts and ends every day, plus it goes with me almost everywhere. Not only do I design for the business, I crochet for my family and friends, and adore giving my handmade goods away.
At MadameStitch, I design with the busy crafter in mind, someone just like me. I pair easily acquired stitches and repetitive patterns with complimentary yarns and colors to create timeless, stylish looks. Crocheting one of my designs helps the mind unwind. You’ll find patterns that are just as much fun to make as they are to wear and use.
Granny squares are my absolute favorite crochet design element. They are so simple yet offer so many possibilities. I love playing with the granny stitch, finding new and innovative ways to incorporate it into many of my designs. However, if you don’t love granny squares as much as I do, you’ll still find a MadameStitch design that tickles your fancy.
Outside of MadameStitch, I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, and companion to my sweet mini Aussie-poo, Daisy. I love to cook (because I love to eat), to read, and to spend time outdoors walking and hiking. Family time usually includes lively board games or watching baseball and football.
I hope you enjoy this new MadameStitch design. When Helen gave me a ball of this beautiful Jewelspun, I knew I had to design something special just for her blog. No surprise…it includes granny squares!
I live in Oklahoma, USA with my husband, four children, two rescue dogs, and one cranky cat. I moved around a lot in my young childhood years, as my father was in the Air Force. When I was eight years old my family settled in Oklahoma and I’ve, more or less, been here ever since.
I have wonderful memories of sitting next to my mom while she would cross stitch. I loved how she would make little patches of color that seemed unrelated, but then gradually, as she filled in more squares, they would turn into a picture. She also quilted, sewed, and knitted. I grew up with a tradition of beautiful needle arts in my family. My loft studio today has cross stitch pictures made by my grandma, myself, my mom, and my sister. I have two antique quilts hanging over the banister. I have doilies crocheted by my grandma, and many other loved handmade treasures.
In addition to crochet and knitting, I love to spin yarn, hike, kayak, and listen to audiobooks. Lately I’ve been listening to the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson and still have a sunburn and some scrapes on my leg from my last kayaking adventure.

- To make the join in the square as invisible as possible, Rnds 2-8 begin with a ‘ch 1’ followed by a dc in the same st. Pull up the chain to almost the height of the dc to avoid pulling. Do not turn after any round.
- A ‘ch 3’ may be substituted for the STsc if you prefer. It will not alter the construction; however, an STsc blends into the fabric more easily than a ‘ch 3’.
- Pay close attention the number of dc worked in each corner.
- The corner counts are different to accommodate the difference between the granny stitch and solid dc sections of
beg – beginning
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
hdc – half double crochet
hdc 3lp – See Special Stitches
rep – repeat
rnd(s) – round(s)
sc – single crochet
sp – space
st(s) – stitch(es)
STsc – See Special Stitches
YO – yarn over
Half double crochet in the 3rd loop (hdc 3rd loop) – YO, insert hook in 3rd loop (on backside of st), YO, draw up loop, YO, pull through all 3 loops on hook.

The assembly schematic shows you the orientation of each square. Be sure to line the squares up with solid edges matching and granny stitch edges matching according to the schematic.
Note: When the squares are lined up properly, one edge of the ring will all be granny stitch, the other edge will be solid double crochet.
With wrong sides held together, slip stitch each seam (or use the seaming method of your choice).
Without twisting, sew the ends together to form a ring.

- Do not turn after any round.
- Be sure the first hdc 3lp of the round is worked behind the ‘ch 1’ of the previous round. It may be difficult to see.
