Winter has come early to Victoria, British Columbia where I live. Most years we’re lucky to not see any snow but this year, it arrived on the second day of November. Now, to be honest, it didn’t stick around for long but it definitely was a shock to the system.
As soon as I felt that cold Arctic air, I knew it was time to start working a new crochet scarf. My original idea was to use a block stitch but as soon as I started working on the scarf, I knew it was a little bit too boring of a stitch for what I was after. After fooling around with a few ideas I came up with this much more interesting cross-over block stitch pattern.
The cross-over block stitch has a lovely texture and look to it and could be used for blankets, washcloths, bags, hats and more. I’m really pleased how this infinity scarf pattern turned out and I’ve decided it’s going to make the perfect gift for a special someone this Christmas.
