Fantail Shell Stitch Scarf - free crochet pattern and video tutorial!


Want a scarf to match your fingerless gloves? Your wish is my command!





Here is a simple fantail shell stitch pattern for an infinity cowl, you can however leave it as a long flat scarf if you prefer! I simply sewed the ends together using a whip stitch to convert it to a long loop I can wrap around my neck.



Without further ado, here is the pattern!
