This quick-and-easy crochet infinity scarf is perfect for those times when you need to make something and you need it done now. (Yep, we've all been there.) Crochet is almost always fastest when you work the same stitch across a row and the same stitch for many rows. That's exactly what this cowl brings to the table: the first half is worked in half double crochet and the rest is double crochet. Simple. Fast. Perfect.

The best thing about learning to crochet? All stitches essentially build off what you've already learned. Once you've mastered the basic, must-know stitches (such as chain stitches and single crochets), you've got a solid foundation.
