Myriad Infinity Scarf

 

Sometimes you look at yarn either in a ball or in a skein and can't see how gorgeous it really is until it is worked up.  Shangri La by Countrywide Yarns was one of those yarns for me.  It looks quite different in the ball and the beauty of this yarn can't really be appreciated until it starts to 'become'! 

I had been itching to have a play with it but really needed to find the right project first.  When Texyarns released their gorgeous Peppin 14 I just knew this would be the perfect pairing.

I looked for the right pattern to use these gorgeous yarns together but couldn't find a pattern that showcased both yarns the way I hoped.  So in the end I decided to create something myself to show how beautiful these yarns are together.  As many of you know I love texture and so this had to feature in the design.  I have called this infinity scarf 'Myriad' due to the myriad of colours that emerge from Shangri La, some I wasn't aware of looking at the ball!

  

Materials:

  • Fiddlesticks Peppin 14 (or other 14 ply / Super Bulky yarn),
  • Countrywide Yarns Shangri-La (or other 14 ply / Super Bulky yarn),
  • 7.0 mm crochet hook (I used a Clover Amour)
  • Needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers

 

 

Hints & Tips:

Myriad Infinity Scarf is worked in the round.

Optional border is attached to the foundation row, not after row 16.

Half Double Crochet Foundation Stitch 

This stitch has been an absolute game changer for me, I used to detest that first row when I had to double or treble crochet into the chains I had made.  I always found it fiddly, and more often than not that first row of chains was a different tension to the rest of the project. With the foundation stitch I don’t have these issues, it’s fantastic, I hope you get as much use out of it as I do!!! 

  1. Slip stitch on hook
  2. Chain 2 
  3. Put hook through 2nd chain from hook making sure you place your hook through 2 strands. Yarn over, pull up loop. (2 loops on hook)
  4. Yarn over, pull through the first loop only (chain stitch made) 
  5. Yarn over, pull through all loops on hook (half double crochet made)
  6. Put hook through 2 strands of previous chain stitch. Yarn over, pull up a loop. 
  7. Yarn over, pull through the first loop only see picture 2 (chain stitch made) 
  8. Yarn over, pull through all loops (half double crochet made) 
  9. Continue from 6-8 until desired length achieved.
I find it easier to turn my work so that the foundation stitches are working down, like a normal chain would.
