Every spring, cherry trees bloom in a symphony of lacy, fragrant flowers. I love the contrast of the millions of delicate pale pink flowers contrasted by the sturdy, darker branches that provide support. This infinity scarf gives a nod to this springtime marvel with each stripe color paying homage to the strikingly beautiful blooms and branches. Crocheted lengthwise in chunky granny stripes, it is a perfect piece for those who are having springy thoughts while still needing to bundle up.
Cherries In Bloom Infinity Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson
- N (9.0 mm) Crochet Hook
- 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color A (Fig)
- 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color B (Blossom)
- 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color C (Fisherman)
- Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Note: You’ll have some yarn leftovers from each skein, unless you make yours wider than shown.
- Width-Scarf shown is 7 inches wide, but you can easily make your scarf wider by working more rows.
- Circumference-Scarf pictured is 66 inches long.
Scarf is worked in one color per row beginning with the light pink.
Ch 105 loosely (Note: multiples of three if you desire a different length).
Foundation Row: In the 2nd chain from hook, work one sc. Then work one sc in each ch all the way across.
Row 1: Chain 3 and turn. Make one dc into the first stitch and chain 1. *Skip 2 stitches, then work 3 dc and ch 1 into next stitch. Repeat from * to end of row, but in the very last stitch, only work 2 dc.
Row 2: Chain 3 and turn. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the first space (in between the 3 dc clusters from the previous row). Then work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the last (turning chain) space, work 1 dc.
Row 3: Chain 3 and turn. In the first space, work 1 dc, ch 1. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the very last (turning chain) space, work 2 dc.
Row 4: Chain 3 and turn. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row. In the last (turning chain), work 1 dc in that top stitch. (Note: The last dc is worked in the top stitch (loop, not space) this is because if is worked in the space it would “split” the cluster in half. Working it in the stitch instead keeps the cluster intact, the rest of the pattern is worked in the spaces).
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until scarf is desired width.
Before you seam your scarf, if you wish, you can add a twist or a “mobius” to your infinity scarf:
Whip stitch the two ends together. Weave in all ends and you’re finished!
