I had so much fun creating this beautiful crocheted infinity scarf. Usually when I choose a new project, one of the things I look for is its accessibility and ease of construction. Crochet is therapy and stress relief for me; I want something that makes the hook sing! This double wrap infinity scarf did not disappoint.
It’s funny sometimes where inspiration for a new pattern comes from. I happened to be preparing a pattern for a sampler cowl (of course, I couldn’t find what I wanted already in print), the basis for teaching my first class at The Knitter’s Edge, and during my research I happened upon this stitch. Because of its easily attainable repetition – alternating Y-stitches and fans – I thought it would make the perfect stitch for a class of beginning crocheters who needed a bit of a challenge. After I saw how it worked up in the sampler cowl, I simply had to try it on its own.
The Crow’s Foot Lattice Stitch is the foundation stitch for this scarf. The recurring stitch pattern looks strikingly similar to the imprint a bird’s claw might make…hence, the name. The yarn I chose is Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Reindeer. The depth and variation of Madelinetosh’s hand-dyed yarn paired with this lacy, openwork stitch makes for the perfect combination of luxury and utility.
The pattern for this infinity scarf is now available on Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy. You’ll need to be at least an advanced beginner to tackle it but it really isn’t difficult at all. You’ll gain immense satisfaction from crafting this beautiful accessory for you or someone you love! Enjoy!!!
