Short Infinity Scarf

This snugly scarf is a shorter version of the one I shared here.


The yarn I used was bulky and super soft.
Our granddaughter, Keri Jill was kind to model it for me even after a tiring day at school.
This precious girl is who I had in mind when I made it.
I found the yarn at AC Moore in a $1.00 bin and love the color and texture.  It took about 1 1/2 skeins to make this scarf. It does require hand washing and has a peculiar smell that I hope dissipates with a little time, although it doesn't bother Keri at all.

Braided Infinity Scarf

Yarn used: Nicole Basic II Yarn
Crochet Hook K

chain 45
Row 1: dc in second chain from hook and in each chain across; chain 2 turn.
Row 2: hdc across
End off.

Make three strips

Lay on flat surface and braid the three strips.
Fold into a circle carefully matching ends.
Using a matching thread and needle, sew the ends together.
Knot yard ends and trim

See this post  for how-to photos of braiding, folding and stitching the scarf.

This is MY FAVORITE yarn. I just found out its discontinued and ACMOORE is the only one that carries it. Of course they don't have an online store! I am looking for the grey version of the yarn you used on that scarf. :(( Can't find it anywhere, so so sad. If anyone comes across it online message me on FB PLEASE www.facebook.com/magenta.bard7 You did an absolutely beautiful job on this scarf! And your picture captured well :)
