The Ginger Snap Infinity Scarf is warm and toasty like a wonderful ginger snap cookie. Worked in alternating rows of puff stitches and double crochet stitches, this scarf makes for an interesting texture and visually appealing stitch sequence.

To make a puff stitch, wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up another loop (5 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (7 loops on your hook). Wrap yarn around hook one more time and bring it through all 7 loops on your hook. (Scroll down for a more detailed photo tutorial)
Foundation Row: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a (puff stitch, ch 1). *Skip 1 ch and in the next ch, work a (puff stitch, ch 1). Repeat from * until you have two chains left. Skip the second to last ch and in the last ch, work 1 dc. There should be 8 “puffs” on this row.
Row 1: Chain 3 and turn. Work a (dc, ch 1) in the top stitch of each puff from previous row, for a total of 8. Work a dc in the top stitch of the turning ch.
Row 2: Chain 3 and turn. Work a (puff stitch, ch 1) into each dc from previous row, for a total of 8 puff stitches across. Work a dc in the top stitch of the turning ch.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until scarf is desired length.
Here is a video to crochet the Ginger Snap Infinity Scarf stitch by stitch:
Weave in all ends and seam the ends to make a long loop.
Alternatively, you could skip the seaming and make it a traditional scarf.
