Once you've been crocheting for a few years, it becomes apparent that there are two main types of projects: those that you can basically do with your eyes closed, and those that require your full and undivided attention. This beginner crochet infinity scarf is an eyes closed kind of project. Three stitches are used in total and it's a one row repeat! That means that it's perfect for: beginners, those who are learning to read patterns, and the seasoned pros who just want something to do while binging Netflix. And the result is fantastic! It's modern, cozy, and works up quickly.
So, a little bit about this yarn. I'm using Yarnspirations, Caron Latte Cakes in Plum. There are quite a few other beautiful color options available. This yarn is so soft and the colorways that it comes in are the same.
I have been known to dismiss novelty yarns in the past, but not this one! It's easy to work with and feels delicate. Even Ravelry users agree and give this yarn a 4.6/5. This is definitely pretty rare for a fuzzy yarn like this!
I'm definitely looking forward to making another one of these. Maybe in a pink, or a bluish, hue 🤔. They take just a few hours to make, which makes this a great gift project for the ladies in your life!
This infinity scarf is named after Miss Saeki from the book "Kafka on the Shore". If you haven't read any books by Haruki Murakami yet, I highly recommend him. That book in particular!
- Caron Latte Cakes, (530 yds/485 m ; 250 g/ 8.8 oz)
- Plum, 1 skein
- Hook — J-10 (6 mm)
- Yarn needle
4”x4”: 12 hdc x 9 rows
Ch 2 does not count as a stitch
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd st from hook, hdc in each st across, ch 2, turn (22 sts)
Rows 2 -120: Hdc in each st across, ch 2, turn (22 sts)
At this point the cowl will be about 54" long.
Bring ends together and join. Do this by whip stitching across ends, or by slip stitching across. Whichever you choose, the seam will hardly be visible because the yarn is so fuzzy!
