Hi there everyone! I hope you've had a happy holiday and are looking forward to a fun New Year's celebration! Given my circumstances, I won't be posting Christmas gift photos for a while yet, but today I will be showing you the infinity scarf I made during final to de-stress during study breaks.
So the inspiration behind this one came from this Forever 21 scarf. I saw the scarf in the store and loved it, but being the stingy stitcher that I am, the first thought that jumped into my head was, "I could make that!" And I did! If you look closely at the pattern, you can probably figure it out for yourself as well...it was quite simple. And is anyone else secretly amused that F21 called it a knit scarf?
Here's a shot of the scarf in its entirety. It's probably the most true to color. I have start remembering to take pictures in natural light!
For those who are curious, I used a little less than a skein of Caron Simply Soft Berry Blue and (I think) a J hook. Here is a shot of the stitch pattern, since I think it's upside down in the product shot.
If you'd rather not do the work of figuring it out, here's the pattern.
Ch multiple of three plus 2. Ch 4 (counts as beg tr). *Sk 1 st, tr in each of next 2 sts. Dc around the 2 trs into the previously skipped st. Rep from * until one st remains. Tr in last st.
For clarification, when you are doing the first row, your first actual tr should be going into the 7th chain from the hook.
And there you have it! Start each row with the ch-4, then simply FO when the scarf is long enough and whipstitch the ends together (or whatever joining method you prefer). And you have your pretty, lacy yet warm infinity scarf!
Edit: So clearly my sketchy explanatory skills are just as bad as I suspected they were. I actually put some thought into this and have posted an actual pattern. Happy crocheting!
