Braided Infinity Scarf

image Today I finished my first summer project, a braided infinity scarf.  I had been wanting to do something like this for a long time, I just never made the time.   I have attached an outline of the pattern I created to make it. This scarf was created with Lion Brand Heartland in Glacier Bay, Joshua Tree, and Grand Canyon (less than one skein each), and a size K hook.  I made one long strip from each color.

The pattern for each strip is as follows:

Foundation:  Ch 12, turn

1st Row:  Skip the first ch stitch closest to the hook, sc in each of the next 11 chain stitches, ch 1

2nd Row:  sc in first stitch, back loop sc in the next 9 stitches,  sc in the last stitch

Repeat the 2nd row until the strip is about 60 inches. When tying off, make sure to leave a tail to sew the opposite ends of the scarf together. image I then attached the strips together at one end using stitch markers. image Next, braid the three strips together, fairly tightly (the braid loosens after the last step). Match up the opposite ends of the scarf and stitch them together.  Tuck in the ends and you have a nice snugly scarf.

If you have any questions about the pattern leave them in the comments and I will try to clarify.

Of course it is almost July so using it is a ways off, but at least I have that to look forward to.

What are you working on?

Crochet Meet Up

Last week I attended my first crochet meet up.  I worked on finishing a scarf that had been languishing in my crochet bag for months!  The finished project looked something like this.  I gave it to my grandma who came out for a visit.

I found the FREE pattern on Ravelry!  It is easy to follow and quick to finish.  The pattern is on the blog Fiber Flux, and there are many other great patterns on this blog, I highly recommend a visit!

Here is the link to the pattern:  http://www.fiberfluxblog.com/2013/01/free-crochet-patterngelato-infinity.html

The meet up was wonderful too, I plan on attending on a regular basis.  The two women who started the group crochet blankets to donate to charity and auctions.  The group was really nice, and I look forward to getting to know these women better.

What projects do you have waiting to be completed?
