This Easy Velvety Infinity Scarf is fun to crochet and wear! Bernat’s Velvet Yarn (by Yarnspirations) is sooooo soft and easy to crochet with. I love how it feels while crocheting and how it feels around my neck. This yarn comes in some beautiful colors and in large skeins which is plenty to make this project.
This project has just 2 stitches in it – single crochet and a simple textured stitch I like to call the “Yarn Over Slip Stitch” – see the explanation or watch the video below to know exactly how to make this stitch. You’ll realize that it gives great texture and interest without being complicated. Plus, I’ve made a video tutorial (see below) to help you with each step of the project.
