Two Skein Knitted Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year! It is the beginning of the year and it is still quite cold so this two skeined knitted infinity scarf will help with the chill in the air. I used some really soft Loops and Threads Facets yarn for this project and completed it with just two skeins of it, including sewing the edges together.

Here is the pattern:

Materials
Two Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (110 Metres/120 Yards each)
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Pattern
CO 30 STs.
Row 1: Knit till end of row (30)
Row 2: Purl till end of row (30)
Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until you have used up most of the yarn.
Cast off, leaving a long tail to sew the ends together.

To sew the ends of the scarf together, you can use the mattress stitch or any other type of sewing methods that you prefer.

Complete!
As you can see, this pattern is very simple and just uses the basics of knitting to complete.

Vacation Knitting

Hi Everyone!

In one of my previous posts, I said I was away visiting the UK, but that hasn’t stopped me from working on some crafting projects. I have completed an infinity scarf and a two toned scarf. Both are simple knitting patterns that I will sharing on the blog. I also want to make a midwife blanket that I always see people making. In this post, I wanted to share with you some pictures of the scarves.

Here is the completed infinity scarf I made using Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Velvet:

Here is the two toned scarf I made using Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Mushroom and Moss Green:

I had a lot of fun knitting these scarves since they were so quick to knit up and the colours look so pretty. I really like the brightness of the velvet yarn and the contrasting mushroom and moss green yarn. The scarves are really soft and the contrasting colours look better than I thought they would.

I will be posting the patterns for these scarves in the next couple of blog posts so look out for those!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Basic Crochet Cowl Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Back again with another basic crochet pattern. This cowl can be adjusted to any length and width. You just have to adjust how many chains you start with and how many rows you do. I made this using Red Heart’s Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the Winery colour. This yarn is a little hard to work with, but once you get used to it, the colours of the yarn are really quite nice.

Crossover Crochet Cowl

Hello everyone!

Today I will be sharing a pattern I made up that was inspired by Karin’s Tunisian Cowl. I wanted to Tunisian crochet, but I am not brave enough to try it yet so I just did this in double crochets. I recently bought an afghan crochet hook so I might use that for my first Tunisian crochet project! This project was really simple and with a little folding and sewing it changes the look of the cowl.

6.5 mm (K) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn – Roving Yarn (I used Red Heart’s Boutique Unforgettable Yarn – Petunia)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

BLO – Back Loop Only
FO  – Finish Off
DC – Double Crochet
ST – Stitch
SLST – Slip Stitch

Pattern – Cowl

Row 1: HDC in 3rd CH from hook and till end. Turn.
Row 2: CH 1. HDC in BLO in each ST from previous row. Turn.
Continue Row 2 until piece measures 80 cm (~32 inches)
FO. Leave long tail for sewing cowl together. Refer to pictures when sewing the piece. The short ends should overlap for about 10 cm (~4 inches). The slight fold on the top piece should be about 2.5 – 5 cm (~1 – 2 inches).

Crochet Hat

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another hat pattern I want to share. I made this for my boyfriend because it is starting to get cold. It is a simple pattern that I adjusted because he wanted a ribbed edge for the hat. I found the pattern on Jenni’s By Jenni Designs blog. I followed her pattern until row 25 and finished off to work on the ribbing separately. Her pattern was really easy to follow and there are different patterns for finishing the hat off on her blog post.

Here is the pattern for the ribbing:

Materials
5.00 mm (H) Hook
Grey Yarn (Craft Smart Yarn)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
FO – Finish Off

Pattern
CH 8.
Row 1: SC into 2nd CH from hook and till end. Turn. (7)
Row 2 – 74: CH 1. SC across. Turn. (7)
Row 75: CH 1. SC into both loops of the original CHs. (7)
FO. Leave long tail to sew ribbing onto bottom edge of the hat.

Note: Try to match the ribbing to the hat evenly so it doesn’t get stretched out in one area of the hat.

Done! Make your own for the upcoming cold weather 🙂
