Free pattern: It’s a Snap! Infinity Scarf

It's a Snap! Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground CrafterBy the time you read this, I’ll be getting ready for my trip to the 2016 Snap! Conference. It’s an annual event for creative bloggers in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I wanted to make an impression while I’m there, so I decided to choose some bold colors and make myself an accessory for the trip. I found these two vibrant skeins of Red Heart Soft at Michaels, and I was instantly smitten.

It's a Snap! Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground CrafterI was pretty sure these would stand out! In other great news, apparently turqouise and red are popular colors these days. (You may remember that color is my 2016 word of the year, so I’ve been added more variety in the colors I use, too.)

It's a Snap! Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground CrafterSince I didn’t have much time to get the scarf finished before the conference, I decided to choose a quick and simple stitch pattern. This is a one-row repeat stitch pattern, so it’s easy to remember, too. To keep things interesting, I alternated blocks of red, turquoise, and stripes.

It's a Snap! Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground CrafterI was able to finish it in just a little over one commute. It’s long enough to wrap around three times, but it’s got some lacy eyelets, too, so it’s a perfect year-round infinity scarf. You can wear it in the air conditioning or on a chilly night in the spring and summer, or wrap it around snugly for colder fall or winter weather.

Free pattern: Mock Bobbles Cowl (#HolidayStashdownCAL2016)

Mock Bobble Cowl, free #crochet pattern by Underground Crafter #HolidayStashdownCAL2016I’m thrilled to share the third pattern in this year’s Holiday Stashdown Crochet-A-Long. (If you’re new to the Holiday Stashdown CAL, you can find all the details here.)

This post contains affiliate links.

A few years ago, I received this lovely skein of Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a swap. It happens to be in my favorite color (purple) but it sat in my stash for a while, waiting for its true purpose to be revealed.

Mock Bobble Cowl, free #crochet pattern by Underground Crafter #HolidayStashdownCAL2016It turns out it wasn’t meant for a hat (the destiny of most solo skeins in my stash), but rather a cowl.

This pattern uses two of my favorite stitches, crossed double crochet and mock triple crochet bobbles. The texture is a delight to watch as it develops in front of your eyes.

Mock Bobble Cowl, free #crochet pattern by Underground Crafter #HolidayStashdownCAL2016This makes a great unisex project that works for almost any adult on your holiday list. Make it with one color, like I did, or with striped edges, or with stripes. Either way, it’s a great way to use up stash yarn.

To join the Holiday Stashdown CAL…

  • Share your progress and post pictures of your finished projects. Tag your projects and posts #HolidayStashdownCAL2016 on all social media.

Free pattern: Mariuccia Reversible Infinity Scarf

Mariuccia Reversible Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterEvery year, I try to make special handmade holiday gifts for my mom and sister. Back in October, I came across some beautiful yarn at the Farmers Market, and knew it had to become a gift for my mom.

Mariuccia Reversible Infinity Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

Two skeins of yarn from the Catskill Merino Sheep Farm.

This is a beautifully soft, Merino wool from the Catskill Merino Sheep Farm called Saxon Merino Sport. I was drawn into the booth by the skein of Half and Half, which is half green and half undyed. (Unfortunately for you, this beautiful yarn is only available at the stand.)

I wanted to make a pattern that was reversible, and here’s the stitch pattern I came up with. On the left, you can see the “right” side, and on the right you can see the “back” side. I think both look wonderful, making this a very versatile infinity scarf.
