Have you ever seen a skein of yarn in the store that is so pretty you just have to buy it right then and there? And, of course, you have no specific plans for it but you just gotta have it? 🙂
Well, that is what happened when I saw the yarn pictured below by Yarn Bee – their “Sugarwheel Cotton Sparkle” in the color “Just Relax” – ahhh. Pretty blues with the name “Just Relax” . . . .
So, I came up with this easy crochet infinity scarf project using a one row repeat stitch pattern – and sure enough, it was so relaxing to crochet! Once I got into the rhythm of the stitches, my hook was cruising along taking the soft and sparkly yarn quickly through my fingers.
I think you’ll enjoy crocheting this project – I love how you can’t see the rows clearly (so there are no row-lines) and it even looks like it’s been knitted. This stitch gives it a lot of stretch so be sure to store it rolled up or folded in a drawer (not hanging).
Let’s get to the specifics! **UPDATE: Now there is a video tutorial for this scarf project -scroll down to see it!**
