Basic stitches and a unique yarn come together to make the Toasted Marshmallow Infinity, a loop scarf pattern you’ll reach for time and time again.
I love designing fun wearables, but every now and then I like to return to basics and make something simple and easy. The Toasted Marshmallow Infinity was inspired by the new Cuddle Me Softly yarn from Wool and the Gang, currently available at select JOANN stores and on JOANN.com.

My crochet design career started when I first decided to sell my items at craft fairs. First came the Mega Pom Beanie, my signature hat pattern, and I followed that up with a series of simple scarves like the Level 4 Infinity and the Holey Cowl.
My design library has become a bit more advanced, but I still yearn to go back to the basics every now and then. I had an idea to make a beginner-friendly infinity scarf that really highlighted some of the chunky and unique yarns available in the winter time. The Toasted Marshmallow Infinity was the result and I couldn’t be happier!
The Toasted Marshmallow Infinity is made using a small variation on the single crochet stitch. Instead of working in both loops of the stitch, I work in the back loop only. When worked in the round, this technique produces an eye-catching texture without making the pattern more complicated.
There are dozens of lovely super bulky yarns on the market right now, but I was drawn to the Cuddle Me Softly yarn from Wool and the Gang that is currently available at select JOANN stores. It’s an acrylic blend that’s
If you can’t find Cuddle Me Softly in your yarn store, go for another hefty super bulky weight yarn. I’d suggest trying Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick or Hometown USA. You could also hold two strands of bulky weight yarn together to get the same effect. If I made another Toasted Marshmallow Infinity, I’d try holding two different color strands of Patons Classic Wool Roving together for a marled effect.
Aside from the yarn and the stitch used, the Toasted Marshmallow pattern is elevated by several crochet techniques. This project is worked in the round and is completely seamless due to the use of foundation single crochet stitches. From there, I worked in a spiral and finish by weaving the last end in so that you can barely tell where the final stitch was. I cover all of my techniques in this tutorial video:
