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.

Knitted Scarf Pattern (Contrasting Colours)

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share the pattern for the second knitted scarf I made in the UK during my vacation. This one isn’t an infinity scarf like the previous pattern, but it is worked up quickly and if you like the look of the scarf you can sew the ends together to make an infinity scarf. I used the same needles and yarn for this project because I like how quickly I can finish knitting it. Here is the pattern.

13

Materials
10.0 mm (Size 15) Needles
2 Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (I used Loops and Threads in Mushroom and Moss Green) (82 metres ((90) yards) each)
Scissors
Tapestry Needles

Abbreviations
CO – Cast On
K – Knit
P – Purl

Pattern
CO 16 Stitches.
Row 1: K1, P1. (16)
Repeat Row 1 until you are happy with the length of the scarf. For the one I made, I just knit each colour until I finished up the skein of yarn.
Cast off. Weave in ends.

147

This is a very simple pattern that can be completed very quickly. I like how the contrasting colours turned out and since there are many different colours to choose from, there are many combinations of colours that would look nice together.

Knitted Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Last week I shared some photos of the scarves I knitted while I was over in the UK. This week I want to share with you the pattern for the purple infinity scarf. This is a very simple pattern that you can knit up for a last minute present. I used large needles and thick yarn to accomplish this and it turned out really soft. I am usually a very slow knitter so this kind of knitting project was perfect for me. Let’s get started.

16

Materials
10.0 mm (Size 15) Circular Needles
2 Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Velvet)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Note: If you do not have circular needles you can just use straight needles to knit the piece and sew the ends together with a tapestry needle.

Abbreviation
CO – Cast On

Pattern
Circular Needles
CO 120 Stitches.
Round 1: Connect the loop and place stitch marker. Knit around. (120)
Round 2: Purl Around. (120)
Round 3: Knit Around. (120)
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3 until you are happy with the width of your scarf. I did about 20 rounds in total.
Cast off. Weave in ends.

19

Straight Needles
CO 120 Stitches.
Row 1: Knit across. (120)
Repeat Row 1 until you are happy with the width of your scarf. I did 20 rounds so it will be about 20 rows in total.
Cast off. Leave a long tail to sew the ends of the scarf together to make an infinity scarf.

Finished! These patterns are really simple and would make a great beginner project for using circular or straight needles that require thicker yarn and needles. Next week I will be sharing the pattern for the other scarf I made during my trip.

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!

Fibi the Fox Lalylala Amigurumi Pattern

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share with you an amigurumi that I am very happy to have completed! It is the Fibi Fox Amigurumi that I made using Lalylala’s pattern.  I have wanted to make one of these dolls for a really long time and am very glad I finally did! The pattern was pretty straight forward to follow and the final product turned out so cute! Even the little knitted scarf was enjoyable to make. I don’t usually make amigurumi and I always forget that they work up fairly quickly. The only problem I have in making them is crocheting with a smaller hook, but you get used to it.

Here are my results:

Isn’t she adorable? I had a lot of fun making this project and definitely recommend following one of the Lalylala patterns. I don’t usually purchase patterns, but this project definitely made it worth it! I used Kroy’s Sock Yarn for the scarf and Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice, Loops and Thread’s Impeccable, and Red Heart Super Saver for the body.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy making your own Lalylala doll!

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.

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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).
