Continuing on with my obsession for DIY…
I was in search for a cowl scarf / infinity scarf. Per the name, it’s circle scarf with no ends that wraps around your neck.
The one I really wanted was $75 (gross), BUT I found the pattern to make one pretty much just like it! I had done some crocheting years ago, but only on a very basic level (single crochet). This pattern called for crazy things that I didn’t understand. Terms that were so foreign. My sister is a crochet master and has her own shop on Etsy where she makes the cutest hats and scarves for kids – check it out! I turned immediately to her to help me. She gave me a quick tutorial, which was all I needed. Well… that and YouTube :)
I purchased the pattern off of Etsy for $4. I went to Michael’s and bought 3 skeins of yarn (I ended up using 4). Each was $4 (so $16 total). PLUS if you get a 50% off coupon, you’re set! The yarn I used was Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Oatmeal. It took me a bit of time to get started, BUT once I got the hang of it I was rolling so fast. I started on it Christmas Eve night (Saturday) and was finished by the following Tuesday night.
I noticed the scarf was pretty stiff and wouldn’t shape to my neck at all. It was like two metal rings laying on my shoulders. After blocking it, it softened up and is now perfect. Again, forgot to take pics along the way. If you have questions, let me know. Here’s the finished product:
Until next time
