Living in New England, this year it had been hard to remember that’s the season we’re currently in (It’s currently in the 30s). All I want to do is spend my days watching Gilmore Girls, snuggling under cozy blankets with a hot beverage. But I will not let this yucky weather get me down!
This very simple moss stitch infinity scarf has been the cure to my winter blues!
I just absolutely love the beautiful gradient balls of yarn that are so trendy in craft stores now. I picked up some Lion Brand Mandala a few months back and I tried so hard to find a pattern that would showcase the beauty of the color of the yarn. When I couldn’t find anything worthy of this yarn, I spent some time designing the simplest scarf, in my very favorite stitch pattern.
The moss stitch is a very simple stitch that only uses chains and single crochets but the results are so pretty, its hard to identify if the piece is knit or crocheted.
What you will need:
– 1 ball/590 yds of Lion Brand’s Mandala or similar #3/ light worsted weight yarn. (color pictured is Unicorn-201)
-5.5mm/I crochet hook
-Tapestry needle to weave in ends
-Length: 37 inches, width: 7.5 inches
Abbreviations (US Terminology):
-Sc: single crochet
ROW 1: Chain 40.
ROW 2: Make 1 Sc in the 2nd Ch from the hook, *Ch 1, skip 1 chain, Sc in next Ch; repeat from * to end of row. Turn.
ROW 3: Ch 1, 1 Sc in next Sc, 1 Sc in next ch 1 space, *Ch 1, 1 Sc in next ch 1 space; repeat form * to the last Sc. Turn.
ROW 4: Ch 1, 1 Sc in first Sc, * ch 1, 1 Sc in next Ch 1 space; repeat from * to last 2 Sc, Ch 1, skip 1 Sc, 1 Sc in last Sc; Turn.
Repeat ROWS 3 and 4 until you have 37 inches in length of your scarf or until desired length and tie off.
Finishing: Fold scarf and match up the ends, whip stitch across, weave in ends and wear it proudly!
