{DIY}: infinity scarf

Okay guys.  I finally made my first infinity scarf of the year.  It only took me like 5 months haha. I crocheted mine,  but you could easily knit or Knifty Knit/Loom one. 

What you need:

~crochet hook size N/10.00mm (the bigger the better for infinity scarves. That way the gauge isn't too tight and you can manipulate the finished product in anyway you want)
~yarn (I used the generic acrylic yarn. you know, the kind you use in elementary school with glue and paper and stuff. :)

I used a simple double crochet stitch the entire pattern. I used 60 inches worth (I have no clue how many stitches I did) of chains using my crochet needle and yarn. I think it was about 120 stitches??
*Chain across the entire row, and chain two at the end. Turn and repeat, for 8 rows.*
To finish connect the two short ends of your scarf with a simple slip stitch all the way across.  And you're done!! The slip stitch (instead of sewing) creates an invisible seam that is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. If you're into that sort of thing. :)

Now mine was just used with some left over Grey acrylic yarn.  But if you were to splurge on some nice chunky yarn it would be simply DIVINE.

This is the finished product!

There will be more to come! I also make these ruffle scarfs with the sashay brand yarn from Joann's or Michaels.  This one was a wonderful gift for Arianne!

Happy Sunday!
