Roundabout Crochet Infinity Scarf



I came up with this scarf because I loved all the infinity scarfs that I've been seeing on Pinterest lately. My days are mainly consumed with kids and work so I really needed something that wouldn't take very long. This scarf is made in a simple v-stitch that works up pretty quickly. It only took me a few hours to make. 

Materials:

I Love This Cotton (2 skeins)
Size K crochet hook
Tapestry needle

ch 29

Row 1: dc in 5th ch from hk, ch 1, dc in same ch, skip 2 chs, *(dc, ch1, dc) in next st, skip 2 chs, repeat from *to end of row, turn


Rows 2-75: ch 3, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 space, repeat from *to end of row


Assembly

Fold scarf in half long ways. With tapestry needle, whip stitch ends together. Then, whip stitch the short ends together. Weave in ends.

Not a very good pic, but I thought I was cute :-)


Enjoy!!!
