Earlier this week, I shared the free knitting pattern for the Seeds and Cables Scarf. It was made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle yarn, a larger skein of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick with enough yarn for a scarf. I loved the idea of crocheting a larger project quickly and without weaving in a lot of ends, so I decided to make a crochet pattern using Bonus Bundle, too.
I took some of the photos at the Brooklyn Promenade (which you may recognize as the backdrop to the Promenade Shawl). It’s got the best view of the Manhattan skyline around.
Let me tell you a little about the Crunch Stitch Infinity Scarf. I used the crunch stitch, which is one of my favorite stretchy, ribbed patterns. I sometimes use it for hat bands. It makes a really squishy, cozy infinity scarf.
The crunch stitch in the back loop also has a knit look, and it’s very unisex.
