Hey all! 🙂 I’ve always wanted to create a Valentine’s Day themed scarf, but never got the inspiration beyond just thinking about it until now. Of course this scarf will look great any time of year- just change up the yarn colors according to the season! 🙂
This infinity scarf measures 54″ around and about 9″ wide. It uses boulce and 4-ply worsted weight yarn, alternating colors throughout that gives it an almost ombre effect. It can either be worn as an infinity scarf or doubled up and worn as a cowl. I used colors that are traditional for Valentine’s Day, but you can use any mix of colors you want. And since it uses a variety of yarn, it’s a great stash buster pattern!
