I have seen these infinity scarves all over Pinterest, and in every store, and fashion magazine lately. So, sooner or later, I had to make myself one! Sam has been bugging me to teach her how to knit, so I took her to Michaels yesterday. Of course, I ended up coming home with more yarn than she did. I loved the colour of this yarn, and it has even has sequins too! You can never have enough sparkle!
I looked up a few patterns, and what I decided was that a length of about 6 feet would make a nice scarf that would wrap around three times. So I did a double foundation stitch to end up with a chain about 72 inches long. I used the biggest hook I could find which was a 7mm.
I had bought three balls of the yarn, so I just kept crocheting until I ran out of wool, which was five rows of double crochet, then I had just enough yarn left to add another row of single crochet. Here is the finished product:
Because it was such a chunky yarn, and I used a pretty big hook, it turned out nice and fluffy, and the best part was that I had it done in less than a couple hours!
Every little bit of warmth helps me when I think about the long winter we have ahead of us. I know it’s only fall, but man am I looking forward to spring, I am not loving the Canadian winters the last few years!
Keep warm! -Unless of course you live in a country that is warm all the time… I am so jealous! 🙂
