Happy New Years Eve!! I just can’t believe 2014 is over. I have no idea where the time went! I had a great year, and I’m really excited to see what will happen in 2015!
Today I want to show you a chevron infinity scarf I just finished. I think it is one of my favorite things I have ever made! I started it several weeks ago in my effort to use up yarn I already have. You may recognize it from this blanket I’ve been working on. I really need to get that one finished! I gravitate towards blues, greens and grays, as you can probably tell if you look through my projects. I keep making goals to branch out and try new colors, but I always come back to my favorites.
I used Patons Clasic Wool in Seafoam, Aran, Lemongrass and Grey Mix and a 5.5mm hook. This is a very simple pattern that can be customized to your liking so many ways. You can choose your favorite colors and make it as wide or as long as you want. I made mine long enough to make it an infinity scarf that can be wrapped around twice. You can easily just leave it as a long scarf and add a fringe or make it into a cowl. I love the versatility!Here is how I made my chevron pattern!
1. Start with a chain that is a multiple of 11. This is 33 chains wide as a sample. I like my scarves wider, so I actually made my scarf 55 chains to begin.
2. In second chain from hook, work 2 dc. Work one dc in next 3 chains. You should have 5 dc total. Skip next two chains and work one dc in each of the next 5 stitches. 3. Chain 2 and make a second dc in same chain stitch.4. Work one dc in each of the next 4 stitches. Skip two chain stitches and work a dc in each of the next 5 chains. Continue to the end of the chain. In the final part of the last chevron, work 2dc in the second to last chain stitch, and finish with a dc in the final ch stitch. 5. Chain 2 to turn (counts as first dc)6. Skip the first dc and work 2dc in the next stitch. Work one double crochet in each of the next two stitches.7. Skip the next 2 stitches and work one double crochet in each of the next 4 stitches. In the ch2 space from the previous round work dc,ch2,dc. Continue by working one dc in each of the next 4 stitches. 8. Continue working the same pattern until you reach the end. I think the most important thing is to make sure you have 5 dc in each section. It’s easy to accidentally skip a stitch and have your chevron’s end up a little crooked, so make sure you keep count!If you choose to make it into an infinity scarf, all you have to do is sew up the ends. I leave a long tail and just whipstitch the two ends together. I usually go over it twice to make it a little stronger.I made these stripes completely random and I love it! I think I will definitely make another scarf like this! I would love to see anything you might make with this pattern! You can follow me on Instagram or Twitter to share your projects!
