Loving this Stitch? Make a Matching Hat and Mittens!
Now on to our first pattern! Like I said earlier, this infinity scarf was inspired by one of my most popular Scarfie patterns from last year: the Snowball Slouch Hat. This pattern uses the grit stitch and my absolute favorite colorway of Scarfie yarn to create a perfectly cozy infinity scarf with amazing texture. I love this stitch pattern so much that last January I also designed mittens to match. So basically - if you decide you love this scarf - you can move right onto the hat and mittens and someone will get a VERY nice gift set this holiday season!
