Amy from The Stitchin’ Mommy and Rhondda from Oombawka Design are some of my favorite blogger buddies, so I’m very excited to be part of their fourth annual Scarf of the Month Club.

Free crochet pattern: Crunch Stitch Infinity Scarf in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Bonus Bundle by Underground CrafterEarlier 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.

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.

Knitting Pattern: Seeds and Cables Scarf | Finishing Touches Knit Along #2

Free knitting pattern: Seeds and Cables Scarf in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle yarn by Underground Crafter |Today’s knitting pattern is the Seeds and Cables Scarf. It’s the second pattern in the Finishing Touches Knit Along with KAL Corner. If you love the bold look of cables, this may become your new favorite scarf. And, the seed stitch background sets off the cables while keeping your project from curling.

I love the look of cables, but I’m a relatively slow knitter. When Lion Brand released the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle yarn, I was pretty excited. It’s a larger skein of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick with enough yarn for a scarf in one skein.

Free knitting pattern: Seeds and Cables Scarf in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle yarn by Underground Crafter | Scarf with shawl pin on smiling womanI love that the cables really pop, but with a super bulky yarn, I can knit up the scarf much faster. And, of course, there are fewer yarn tails to weave in with one skein than with two!

Free knitting pattern: Seeds and Cables Scarf in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Bonus Bundle yarn by Underground Crafter | Scarf as infinity scarf with ends tucked inIf you prefer an infinity scarf, I’ve included instructions for seaming the scarf together. You may want to leave off the garter stitch borders, but I actually think they would add a nice touch on an infinity scarf.
