I thought that my first few incidents of crocheted scarves were going to be short stints. But these crocheted infinity scarves have been so easy to make, and help keep my neck warm that they’ve become a staple project.
Recently, Lovely Daughter (LD) asked me for a gray infinity scarf and allowed me to use variegated yarn.
Excited to use a variegated yarn for her, I select a worsted weight yarn from Knit Picks – their Chroma style, in the Fog Bank color: “A subtle series of grays, Fog Bank rises from dark charcoal, to medium blue-gray, to a light mist.” Unfortunately, this also had some brown in it and I wasn’t sure if LD would like it. I told her about it and she was iffy.
I then went to Webs, and found a lovely yarn with its strand having the different colors, rather than having it as a series of colors along the yarn. “Rowan Drift is a bulky single ply yarn that swirls several colors together to create a stunning appearance when knit or crocheted.”
This one is definitely not brown!
I’m visiting LD at college this weekend and brought both scarves up for her to see. I would have been satisfied if she had liked one and sent the other home with me…that I would use!
I received even better results. She wanted both!
Now on to some knitting?
