Seafoam Circle Scarf


Over the last couple of months I have made several scarves/cowls that I have been meaning to post patterns for and I just haven't had time to do it. I am finally getting around to posting one today. Part of the reason it has taken me so long is because I wanted a picture of someone wearing it and didn't want to take a picture of myself. Finally I just broke down and took the picture so that could get the post up.



I used Red Heart Boutique Infinity yarn to make it. The bulky weight yarn made for a quick project and it only took one skein to make. I think this is one of my new favorite yarns for things like scarves. Red Heart actually sent me some to try out a few months ago and I really liked it, then one day I was looking at yarn at Walmart and I noticed that they had put some of it on clearance so I grabbed a couple of skeins in colors that I had been wanting to use. They had a lot of skeins marked down in a few different colors and it was really tempting to get more but I limited myself to just 2 skeins. The seafoam colorway that I used for this scarf was one of the skeins that I bought. It is one of my favorite colors, I love anything in that light blue-green/aqua/seafoam kind of color family. In fact, my laptop case is that color, my phone case is that color and I think when it comes to picking presents my kids are pretty sure I will love anything as long as it is that color. In addition to liking the color, one thing that I really like about this yarn is the subtle color change. That combined with the bulkiness and soft feel make it, in my opinion a great yarn for scarves.


For this scarf I used a stitch that is called Zig-zag Lozenge. It alternates rows of v-stitches and double crochet clusters. It is a pretty simple stitch and one that I had been wanting to use in a project for a while. A scarf seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it. I decided to make the scarf flat and then sew the ends together to make the circle.
