Infinite Spring

In celebration National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) I am participating in Crochetville’s Designer Blog Crawl.

This is my new pattern, Infinite Spring Scarf, an infinity scarf in 3 colors of DK weight yarn. It could easily be adapted to another weight yarn, however I chose the lighter DK for spring. It’s perfect for a chilly spring day. The scarf above is done in Berroco Vintage DK (wool/acrylic blend). This has a nice soft feel to it and I am a fan of wool, even in the spring and summer! Added benefit, if you make this cowl with Vintage DK you should have enough yarn leftover to also make my Tri-Tone Tunisian Cowl.

This version is done in Bernat Cotton-ish (cotton/acrylic). I  like how the cotton acrylic blend feels light around my neck, no cotton dishcloth feel with this yarn.

Both the Vintage DK and Cotton-ish come in a variety of complimentary colors that make color choice relatively easy. For these scarves I used two bright mid-tone colors and one lighter neutral color. This seems to be a good rule of thumb for creating a pleasing color combination with this stitch pattern.

In honor of NatCroMo I am offering this pattern free on my Ravelry store for the rest of March. Use coupon code NatCroMo2016 at checkout.

Thanks to Amy and Donna of Crochetville for letting me participate in the blog crawl. Hop on over to Crochetville to check out an interview with me and see all the other crochet designers who are featured this month.

Thanks also to my local yarn shop Windy Knitty for the use of the mannequin for photographs. I’ll be teaching some classes in Chicago at Windy Knitty. In April I’ll be teaching the Whispering Flowers Infinity Scarf, and in May a class on Tunisian crochet fingerless mitts.
