Hi all! I hope you’re enjoying this chilly weather as much as I am. It’s the perfect weather to wrap up in a crochet scarf, don’t you think?
Well, I wanted to share my latest creation with you too. I tested out the intricate Lily of the Valley stitch in my Lily crochet cowl. This crochet stitch is so easy. It’s only a series of double crochet in a one-row repeat but it looks complex and impressive.
The detail of the stitching in this infinity scarf crochet pattern looks beautiful with the Karaoke yarn. It only took about 440 yards of yarn, so it’s a quick and easy crochet cowl pattern to stitch up. I initially liked this yarn because my daughter’s favorite color is purple, and I knew she’d love whatever I made. And I had 4 skeins of it, so it was perfect for this crochet cowl.
The yarn has a subtle gradient, which adds a rich dimension to the crochet infinity scarf pattern. The Karaoke is a soy silk/wool blend. It’s soft and great for felting too. And it comes in a ton of vibrant shades.
With the lacy crochet stitches, this crochet neck warmer would make a great gift this holiday season. Or keep one for yourself. It’s perfect for chilly weather and the color is beautiful on anyone. And it’s one of my many free crochet cowl patterns, which is always a plus!
I’ve been stitching up crochet projects like a madwoman. I’ve even been experimenting with stitch patterns, such as the shell stitch in my new Simple Shells Light Wrap. It’s perfect for a walk outdoors or to take on vacation. You could even wear it as a neck warmer.
