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.

I also love beautiful edgings and thought it would be fun to take a piece of the oversized edging from the Colorida Hammock Blanket project (a FREE pattern found here on our blog) and turn it into this quick and unique home decor item. I love how this project[Read more]
