Infinity Scarf… Oh How I Love Thee

19 Jan

I finished my infinity scarf that I have been working on for a few days, and I am in LOVE! It’s so cozy warm I just want to take a nap in it! I actually started the infinity scarf project a week ago but the yarn I chose at firts was uber scratchy. I went to wrap in around my neck for a little test drive before I finished, and it felt like I made a scarf out of scotch-bright dish scrubbers lol.

I headed to Micheals to pick out the softest yarn they had (on sale). People were probably thinking I was strange because I was rubbing all the different yarns on my face and neck to see which one was soft. I didn’t care though. I didn’t want to make the same mistake twice.

I ended up purchasing a “Vanna’s Choice” yarn by LION BRAND in mustard and for the stripe I used the same brand in taupe.

 

 

 

Here is the finished project. Well I think it’s finished. I might put another stripe. I’m not sure. What do you think, should I add more stripes?

 

 

How to:

1. Start with a chain stitch and make it as long as you want ( measure it losely around your neck twice)

2. When you get your desired length, chain an extra three from the end.

3. Put a half double chrochet stitch in each chain until the end

4.Chain three turn your work and repeat step three. Continue until you reach your desired width.

5.For the stripe I slip stiched to add the new color,  and cotinue with the slip stich all the way around the scarf.

6. Join ends using a yarn needle and the tail end from your last row of your scarf or an extra piece of yarn.

 

TAA-DAHH! Enjoy your scarf! so easy huh!
