I have been bitten by the crochet bug! I have a list a mile long of all of the projects I would like to make. Since I am just getting started I'm trying to keep them as simple as possible. I see many scarfs in my future as I become more comfortable with the different stitches.
After looking at several patterns for infinity scarves on Pinterest I came across this one. I like how it was worked in a flat piece then stitched up at the end. Another great benefit is it only takes 1 skein of yarn. Jay's Boutique Blog has several cute free patterns that I'm sure I will be making in the future.
This scarf isn't very long but wrapped around your neck twice makes a great cowl. The color is hard to see. The yarn I used was mostly tan with flecks of navy, red and green in it. It took me about a day and half to make. Not to bad for a beginner ;) My next project is a coffee sleeve using the left over yarn from this project!
