I was recently asked by a friend to make her an infinity scarf. I decided to do the entire thing in the half double crochet stitch, as it's one of my favorite stitches. I love the way it turned out. I was able to complete this in two evenings. It comes together really quickly. So if you're looking for a great Christmas gift idea that you can finish in time (it's only 23 days away! Eeek!!) then this is for you. :)
Here's how I did it:
Finished size: 78" around x 5 1/2" wide
270 yards worsted weight yarn (I used 2 skeins of Cascade Yarns Pastaza in the color Russet 010)
Size L (8mm) crochet hook
ss: Slip Stitch
hdc: Half Double Crochet
blo: Back Loop Only
Ch 176, join with ss, being careful not to twist stitches
Row 1: Work hdc in each ch, join with ss in first hdc, ch 1
Row 2: Work hdc in blo of each hdc, join with ss in first hdc, ch 1
Repeat rows 1 and 2 four more times, until you have a total of 10 rows
Weave in ends and block.
You can use any weight yarn you like and make this any length and width you like. This is just what I did to make this particular one. I plan on making more of these with some bulky weight yarn and a larger hook.
Until next time...
