Criss Cross Scarf

You may know this already, but I have been addicted to the criss cross stitch lately!

This week, I used my Criss Cross Stitch Infinity Scarf pattern and made a few changes to make a child-sized scarf to match the beanie and ear warmer I made for my 4 year old daughter recently.

Below are the changes I made to the pattern to make the child sized scarf. If you’d like to make this scarf, it would be a good idea to read through the original Criss Cross Stitch Infinity Scarf pattern before making the child-sized adaptation below.

 Important Notes:

  • Chain 2 at the end of each row. This counts as a DC stitch towards your stitch count.
  • Last DC of each row will be in the top of the ch 2 of the previous row.
  • See photos and important notes from the Criss Cross Infinity Scarf Pattern.
  • Finished scarf measures about 6 inches wide and 43 inches long. You can make it any width and length you’d like, just start with an even number of FDC stitches.

The Pattern

Row 1: FDC 22, chain 2 turn

**If you are choosing to start with a chain instead of the foundation stitches, the instructions are chain 23, DC in 3rd chain from hook and into each stitch across. Ch 2. Turn (22)**

Row 2: Criss Cross stitch row – DC in 3rd stitch, then DC in 2nd stitch, *skip a stitch, DC in next stitch, DC in skipped stitch* Repeat from * across. DC in last stitch (in top of ch 2 from previous row). Ch 2, turn.  (22)

Row 3: DC in 2nd stitch and in each stitch across. Last DC will be worked into the top of the Ch 2 from the previous row. Ch 2, turn. (22)

Alternate rows 2 and 3 until your scarf is the desired length.

I made mine about 43 inches long for my 4 year old daughter. Depending on the size you are making, you might want to make it a different length.

Use your yarn needle to weave in ends, or you may even want to sew the ends together to make it into a child-sized infinity scarf.
