I was asked to design a scarf that could also work as a wreath.  My brain cells went into overdrive!  My customer wanted a lightweight yarn, but gift cards would need to be attached to the scarf.  What stitch do I come up with?  I decided to do a modified version of the Fairy Stitch.  If you need a last-minute Christmas gift for someone special on your list…the Maria Infinity Scarf can be worked up in a few hours!

This modified stitch pattern makes it  easy to create many looks from this pattern.  I named this pattern after my beautiful great-niece!

I used one of my favorite yarns for this project…Lion Brand Heartland Yarn.  It’s soft, silky, & allows you to create beautiful textures with a numerous amount of color choices to pick from.  I have great design plans for future patterns with Heartland.



Skill Level:  Intermediate

Gauge:        Approx. 8 1/2 Stitches x 10 rows = 4″

Yarn:          1 Skein Lion Brand Heartland Yarn (251 Yards) (Badlands Shown)

Hook:         H/5.0 mm

Finished Size:  Before seaming – 34″ Wide x 10″ Tall


This scarf is worked in rows then seamed together at the end.

The best way to remember the stitch pattern beginning in Row 4:

  • [SC, CH 2, SC] in the CH 1 SP of Shell ST from previous row.
  • Shell ST [2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC] in CH 2 SP of [SC, CH 2, SC] from previous row.
  • Odd number rows = 1 DC beginning of row
  • Even number rows = 2 DC beginning of row
  • If you want to make scarf larger or smaller:  Your beginning chain count will need to be divisible by 6.  Add 4 for the beginning chain.  For example:  102/6 = 17.  102 + 4 = 106 (the number of chains we start with below).


  • Shell Stitch – In the same stitch [2 DC, CH 1, 2DC]

Leaving a 14″ tail, CH 106.

Row 1: CH 2.  SK 3 SC.  SC in 4th ST.  *SK 2 ST.  Shell ST (see NOTES) in next ST.  SK 2 ST.  [SC, CH 2, SC] in next ST.*  Repeat from * to * across to last 6 ST.  SK 2 ST.  Shell in next ST.   SK 2 ST.    [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Row 2:  CH 2.   2 DC in 1st ST.  *[SC, CH 2, SC] in CH 1 SP of Shell ST from previous row.  Shell in CH 2 SP.*  Repeat from * to * across to last CH 1 SP. [SC, CH 2, SC] in CH 1 SP.  [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Row 3: CH 2.   DC in 1st  ST.   *Shell ST in [SC, CH 2, SC] from previous row.  [SC, CH 2, SC] in Shell ST from previous row.*   Repeat from * to * across to last CH 1 SP.  Shell ST in last CH 2 SP.    [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Rows 4 – 20 :  Repeat Rows 3-4.

Row 21:  CH 1.  SC in 1st 2 ST.  [SK next ST.  SC in next ST.]  Repeat from [  ] across.  SC in last ST.  Turn.

Row 22:  CH 1.  SC in each ST across.  Turn.

Rows 23 – 25:  CH 1.  SC in each ST across.


Fasten off.  Fold scarf in half with the side you want to face out on the inside.   Using beginning tail, whip stitch end rows together.   Fasten off, weave in ends.
