I couldn't quite figure out the the benefits of an infinity scarf over a normal scarf when I was shopping the other day, but I was totally convinced of its awesomeness after seeing this pattern at On the Wings of a Dove. It is the perfect quick and easy Christmas present, so if you are a friend of mine, and a girl, you might be getting one!
The pattern requires 2 skeins of Wool Ease Thick and Quick, but you can also use any bulky yarn. I used some yarn I had bought years ago for a quilt that I never got around to, and then bought some more at Michael's on Black Friday.
Of course, being me, I forgot my wallet on the busiest shopping day of the year, so I had to fight the traffic, the crowds, and stand in line twice to buy my yarn.
So far, I've made 2, for a friend at home and for my mom. Each takes a couple of hours of work, while watching tv or watching mr. bubs totter around.
Brooke at On the Wings of a Dove has another infinity scarf pattern that uses a single crochet instead of a double crochet. Maybe I'll switch it up and try that one too!
