Oatmeal Infinity Scarf

This chunky cowl is fast to make, but with the neutral color and fluffy yarn, it will become a staple for cold winter days. 
I used two skeins of Loops & Threads Country Loom in Shale with an N hook. 

Ch 127

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in next ch, *sk next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, dc in next ch; rep from * to end across to last 2 ch, do in last ch

Row 2: ch 3, turn, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch 1 sp across to last ch 1 sp, dc in ch 3 sp of turning ch

Rep row 2 until the scarf is the desired width. Seam or sc ends together, and fasten off. 
This infinity scarf is big and fluffy, making it perfect to snuggle into. My finished cowl is 9"x78". 
Enjoy this pattern!

Purple Lace Wrap

This beautiful lace wrap is very time consuming, but well worth the effort. It is made with a delicate lace yarn and a rather simple pattern. 
I used two skeins of KnitPicks Gloss Lace in Lilac with size 8 needles. 

CO 80 sts, longtail method

*yarn overs (yo) are done purlwise in this pattern. 

Row 1: k across

Row 2: p2, *yo, p4 tog; rep from -* to end across to last 2 sts, p2

Row 3: k2, *k1, (k1, p1, k1) in yo from previous row; rep from * to end to last 2 sts, k2

Rep rows 1-3 until you have knit the desired length. Fasten off and weave in all ends. 

I blocked this, just by wetting it and pinning it out. It really helped open up the lace and helped it sit flat. 

My finished scarf is 15"x102". 
This is definitely a time consuming scarf, with the delicate lace yarn. I actually spent about 10 months working on this scarf on and off, maybe an hour or three one week and then not working on it for a few weeks and then going back. I worked on it between projects, when I was getting ready to start something new. Since it was so time consuming and fidgety with the lace yarn, I would recommend not trying to knit it all at once, with nothing to break it up. The beauty of the finished lacey project will certainly make up for the effort though!
Hope you enjoy this pattern!

Chain Infinity Scarf

This scarf is super easy to whip up, and I think it looks great with this variegated yarn. I ordered this yarn online, and the little picture of the swatch only showed the red, pink, and pale pink/ white color. Needless to say, I was surprised when it came and had blue and yellow in it! Even with this little surprise I think it makes an interesting scarf, with a really nice, fluffy texture. 
I used 2 skeins of Kaleidoscope in color #51, Item 147 with a J hook. 
Ch 124, join in 1st ch with sl st
Row 1: ch 3, (counts as dc), dc in next ch, *ch 3, Sk next 3 ch , dc in each of next 2 ch; rep from * across to end of row, ch 3, sk next 3 ch, join to top of begininning ch 3 with sl st. 
Row 2: ch 3, (counts as dc), dc in next dc, *ch 3, sk ch 3 so, dc in each of next 2 dc; rep from * across to end of row, ch 3, sk ch 3 so, join to top of begininning ch 3 with sl st. 
Repeat row 2 until desired width, or almost out of yarn. Fasten off, and weave in any remaining ends. 
My finished cowl is 21"x 38". I wrapped it once, but to make it longer, just add a few more multiples of 5. The colors are actually pretty interesting, even though I was completely thrown off by the blue and yellow. 
Hope you make one of these scarves!

Breezy Night Sky Scarf

This ombre ripple scarf is made with yarn in pretty blues, allowing the pattern to fade through the shades of blue and white. 
I used one skein of Patons Lace in Porcelain with size 6 needles. I used circulars to accommodate the large number of stitches. 

CO 344
 
Row 1 and 4: k across

Row 2: k1, p to last st, k1

Row 3: k1, (yo, k1) 3 times, (k2tog) 6 times, *(yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 6 times; rep from * to end to last 4 sts, (yo, k1) 3times, k1

Rep rows 1-4 until you have reached your desired width. 

BO loosely, or using JSSBO. Fasten off and weave in all remaining ends. 

I blocked this lightly, just by wetting it and pinning it out, making sure to pin the ripples. 
I love the Patons Lace yarn, in all their ombre colorways. 
My finished scarf is 9"x75". 
Hope you enjoy this pattern!
