To Infinity and Beyond.......

Ok, so there is no beyond, but I have made a couple of Infinity scarfs.

This little one was made using one skein of Vanna's Choice in Mustard. The pattern I used was Caron's Bellflower Infinity Scarf.  I needed another skein to make it long and able to loop around, but I didn't have one so a short one it is. It's very warm and would have probably been too thick looped around anyway. Has anyone else noticed that Mustard is a popular color right now?


Now for my second one. I made this one in about 4 hours on Friday. The yarn I used is Lion Brands Tweed Stripes in color 206 Woodlands. LOVE this colorway! This was my first time using a self striping yarn and will definitely use it again.  

I started out similar to the patter for the Mustard scarf, and changed up the shells a little. 
Here's how I did it.
-2 skeins of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
-H hook

Start with a chain of 34.
ROW 1-
DC in the 4th chain from the hook.
*Skip next two ch's.
2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc in the next ch.
dc in each of the next two ch's.*
Repeat from * to the end. Ending with dc's in last two ch's.
You should have 4 shell clusters and 5 two dc spaces.


ROW 2-
ch 3 and turn, dc in next dc.
*in ch 1 space of shell- dc, ch 2, dc
skip to 2 dc's and dc in each.
repeat from * to the end with a dc in the last dc and a dc in the top of the ch 3.

ROW 3-
ch 3 and turn, dc in the next dc.
*in ch 2 space of shell-2 dc, ch1, 2 dc
skip to 2 dc's and dc in each.
repeat from * to end with a dc in the last dc and a dc in the top of ch 3.


Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach the desired length. You could leave this as a scarf or sew the two ends together to make a Mobius or Infinity scarf.  I hope I explained the instructions well enough, but if not please feel free to leave me a message.

I have dinner simmering away in the Crock Pot, Beef Tips and Gravy. Pammy Sue at Scotty's Place posted the recipe a while back. This is always a hit with my family. Basically you just add a package of beef tips, (I use the large pack, got a lot of mouths to feed here) and 2 cans of Beef Gravy. Throw it in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. I am going to cook some egg noodles and add them to it. Perfect for a chilly day. I am gonna go now and make a Butter Pecan Pound Cake. If you would like the recipe let me know, I will be glad to share.

TTYS!

Hi Cally, I used two skeins of the yarn to use this. I hope you enjoy!

I started this last night, but I end up with 6 shells and 5 dcs - even when I try the math and count the chains, I cannot see how you got 4 and 5. Regardless, it is still working up beautifully! Thanks for sharing!

Hi all! I just started this beautiful scarf and it took me 3 tries until I reviewed the mustard colored scarf instructions. That one calls for a beginning chain of 32 and skip 2 ch's between the shell and dc's in next 2 ch's also. When I changed it then the pattern works up with 4 shells and 5 dc's spaces! That is as far as I've gotten, so we'll see if there are anymore corrections needed.
