Infinity Scarf

 I learned to crochet late last year, something I have been wanting to do for ages. You might recall I made some Christmas decorations as my first proper project and then forgot all about crochet for a while.

Anyway I have picked up the hook again and thankfully I remember most of what I was originally taught.  My first finished project (and first scarf ever)  is the infinity scarf that you can see in the photos, which is basically a scarf that is one big circle.  To wear it you wrap it around your head twice.

It's so easy to make that you don't really need a pattern.  I have made mine in treble crochet  using Cleckheaton Country Silk 8ply, which is a wool that has flecks of silk in it, giving the yarn some texture.

It's very warm to wear so I will be making a few more once winter comes around again.  The only change I would make is to shorten the length a little.
