To infinity and beyond.

I've seen lots and lots of infinity scarves and have been wanting to make one for quite some time. It's when I saw Lorraine's post for her crochet braided scarf that I was inspired to give it a try. You can find the pattern on her blog.

Pardon the bad pictures but this is what I got.

Duke helped me out and modeled my first scarf. This one I did following the pattern exactly

I liked it but maybe because of the yarn I used or the fact that I tend to crochet a little on the tight side, it turned out just a bit stiff.  That doesn't mean it's not a perfectly good scarf but it was a perfectly good excuse to try again and make an adjustment.

For the second one I used a larger hook and started with a shorter chain. It ended up coming out almost exactly the same length but looser than the first one.

After I finished these two my next project was a crocheted cowl. I'll show you that one tomorrow.

  2. I LOVE seeing YOU, that is a rare sight indeed. I have never heard of this kind of scarf. So it is circular? I think Duke should have the first one. He looks good in it. The one you are wearing is the bomb, I love it and I love the colors as well. And the pattern...it is really gorgeous! I think you could sell these big time!!

  6. I love them, Ann. I have to try to make one of those this coming week. I can actually double crochet so that doesn't look too hard for me. I love your colors better than the tut! You and Duke look stunning. :)

  8. Your scarf is beautiful! Duke makes such a great model - I think it is the contrast of his beautiful white fur against the colorful scarf!

  9. i like the colors and it fits perfect for your cold days that are on the way. can't wear scarves here, to hot even in the winter.. but baby would love it, she loves soft things. duke looks great as always, hope he did not try to walk with it on though... is it crocheted together? or do you tie it on....

  16. I like them both and Duke doesn't appear to be appreciating this very much.

    Have a fabulous day. My best to Duke. ☺

  18. Oh I love them both! I have been thinking about trying one of those too, love that pattern. Very nice.

  19. It's 89 degrees here...they look hot right now. But they'd looks great with a sweater or turtleneck.

    Love the tighter stitched one myself...better.

  21. You did a nice job making the scarf...they are so popular this year...and it was a nice treat to see a photo of you.

  22. Although Duke looks very handsome in blue, he does not seem to be enjoying his modeling career.

    Your scarf is gorgeous and looks so nice on you! LOVE the colors. It will go with lots this winter! Happy you got it just as you liked :)
