How long should I crochet an infinity scarf?

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. The obvious answer is “as long as you want it”.

Some people like their scarves shorter and hugging their necks while others prefer longer infinity scarves. It also depends on whether or not you like to wrap the scarf around your neck multiple times.

You can do a trial run of sorts with a regular scarf. Simply, safety pin the ends together and wrap it around your neck. That will give you an idea of how long your crocheted scarf needs to be.

According to Wiki How, 60″ is a good average length.

What crochet stitch works up the fastest?

In my personal opinion, I would have to say the Double or Triple/Treble Crochet Stitches are fastest because they are tall stitches.

AllFreeCrochet actually did a survey on this question and found that the fastest crochet stitch is the Double Crochet Stitch.

All that being said, I have seen some crocheters work so fast that you can’t see their hands move. My guess is they are using a simple stitch and can therefore work it very quickly.

It all depends on your expertise and years of practice.

Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?

Yes, absolutely! The reason a bigger hook uses less yarn is that the hole you create while crocheting is larger. Your finished piece will therefore be lighter, more open and airy which is great for summer wraps and triangle shawls.

Note: when I say ‘less yarn’, what I mean is length of yarn, not weight.
