There may be a digital copy of this on the web. This was the pattern (from a Caron Simply Soft skein) I used in making two scarves (see first here and second here) using this exact pattern and one infinity scarf without the fringes. This could even be modified into a cowl.

This is a great pattern for beginners who would like a different texture to their scarves and cowls 🙂

Other Yarncraft

Earlier this month, I picked up my needles and got back into knitting. I was able to quickly re-learn casting on, the knit stitch, and purl stitch. I also learned several different ways of casting on, and a couple of ways in working the knit stitch and purl stitch.

I must say that I think you need to have a little more dexterity with knitting, because you’re handling and working with another tool, along with the challenge of the yarn slipping and sliding on the needles. But I know that with ongoing experience, all of that can be managed easily and efficiently.

I also got back into loom knitting with the circular or round looms.  I have yet to knit with the long, rectangular looms, which I plan to include in my yarncraft. Loom knitting definitely produces items quicker than needle knitting or crocheting. To me, I think using thicker yarns is ideal for loom knitting.

YouTube has greatly helped in relearning these methods, while learning new things within the craft. I’ve learned that each method of yarncraft can be used for specific projects, at least personally to me.

The yarn I used is I Love This Cotton! in Dark Denim, with a size I hook. There wasn’t a particular pattern I used. The band is made with single crochet (sc) stitches, crocheted in the back loop only (blo). The rest is made with double crochets (dc) and front post double crochets (fpdc).

With the cooler weather coming up, I made this specifically for my father 🙂


This scarf was made by using Caron’s “Lacy Scarf” pattern. I used two full skeins (left with less than seven feet of yarn) Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! in Rosy, with a size I crochet hook. 

I followed the pattern as written, but did not add the fringes in order to create the infinity scarf. The final piece measures 8″wide and 63″ around.

It turned out so beautifully! And it wears very well. This will be given as a gift to my mother, which I’ve simply wrapped in blue tissue paper 🙂




I’m not sure when I made this piece, but I know it was within five years from 2016. It was my first time making this pattern. I used Caron’s “Lacy Scarf” pattern. The yarn used is Caron’s Simply Soft Brites in Berry Blue, with a H (5.00 mm) hook.

The Berry Blue color has either been discontinued or renamed to Blue Mint.

This piece was made in Spring 2015 using Caron’s “Lacy Scarf” pattern. The yarn used is Caron’s Simply Soft in Autumn Red, with a H (5.00 mm) hook.

Fingerless Gloves

Crocheted fingerless gloves with Patons Silk Bamboo in Coal. The next pair that I make will have a partial thumb covering.
