I used to love long floaty winter scarves (even better if they had super long full tassles)! Only problem with this type of scarf is the possibility of serious bodily injury - as they always seem to get caught on and in everything.
My new winter favourite is the Infinity Scarf (lovely and warm, fairly loose around the neck and so out of the way!
The Diagonal Granny Stripe is also a big favourite of mine - I just HAD to use it to make an infinity scarf:
Here is my pattern in case you would like to make one (I have tried to make it as accurate as possible - I am only human though - so please leave me a comment if you find an error)!
Start with: 5ch
Row 1: Into 5th ch from hook - 3dc, 1ch, 1dc (first corner formed)
Row 2: 4ch - turn; 3dc into 1ch sp; 3dc, 1ch, 1dc into corner space
Row 3: 4ch - turn; 3dc into 1ch sp, 3dc into space between clusters; 3dc, 1ch, 1dc into corner space
Repeat Row 3 13 times (16 rows in total)
In order to form a long rectangular strip you will now continue to increase on the one side of your work, while decreasing on the other:
Row 17: 4ch turn; 3dc into next sp between clusters (decrease = 2nd corner formed), 3dc into each subsequent sp, into last sp on row work 3dc, 1ch, 1dc (increase)
Row 18: 4ch turn; 3dc into 1ch sp (increase); 3dc into each subsequent sp up to 2nd last sp; 1ch, 1dc into last sp
Repeat rows 17 and 18 until you have a total of 130 rows
At this point you will continue to decrease on the one side as you have been doing and you will begin decreasing on the side where you were previously increasing:
Row 131: 4ch turn; 3dc into next sp between clusters (decrease), 3dc into each subsequent sp up to 2nd last sp; 1ch, 1dc into last sp (decrease - 3rd corner formed)
Repeat until second last row = 1sp, 1 cluster, 1 sp
Final Row: 4ch turn 1dc into sp at end of row.
Fold in half and join the bottom and top seams:
I gathered my seam slightly (I find it sits better at the back of the neck) - but this is up to you.
Yarn used: Stylecraft Life - Fuschia, Melon, Clover (four rows of each in that order)
Hook used: 5.00mm (my tension is a bit on the tight side though).
Fun to make - lovely to wear!
