This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for this sample was generously provided by Galler Yarns. I also loved marled yarns where two different colors of fiber are twisted together to create a tweedy look. Galler Yarns Peruvian Tweed brings together soft alpaca, a marled yarn, and a jumbo skein (8 ounces/227 grams!), and you can make two of these infinity scarves out of one skein – one for you, and one for a gift. Don’t forget to share a picture on Ravelry or with my Facebook page if you make one! If you want an easy print format, you can buy an ad-free PDF version on Craftsy.
