Denim Infinity Scarf

The first time I saw the Lion Brand Jeans yarn in the craft store I fell in love with it! Who doesn’t love the color and feel of denim? And this yarn has both! It comes in several colors but this one here – “Classic” – was my favorite. This scarf works up quickly and feels great around your neck. The mini-puff stitches (that are explained for you below) create a gentle texture that creates a perfect “channel” for the[Read more]

I used a Super Fine (1) yarn that is similar to sock yarn (which would also work) and I love how the Super Fine yarn shows off the pretty stitch pattern. Then in January my sister, Alice of Geekamuffins, suggested we do a fun collaboration for[Read more]
