Vibrant Infinity Scarf Pattern

The first time I saw this yarn, I knew that I just had to have it! What to do with it, was another story … My idea for this infinity scarf didn’t come until later, which is kind of the opposite of how I try to do things. But hey, sometimes it pays to work backwards.

Now I have really been trying not to buy yarn unless I have a specific project in mind, but let’s be honest, sometimes yarn is just too soft, too pretty, too squishy, or just too [insert your chosen reason here] not to buy it.

I was so proud of myself because I had been resisting this beautiful yarn for awhile because I didn’t know what I would do with it. Then, for my birthday one of my good friends gave me some money with the stipulation that I had to use it for yarn. (Isn’t she the best!?!) Immediately I knew this was the yarn I wanted to buy!

After tossing around some ideas, and a little bit of Pinterest-research, I came up with this fun pattern. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Sunflower Applique

 

What’s the best part of fall? Honestly, I don’t think I could pick just one thing … or even two things. There are so many amazing parts to love about fall. To me sunflowers are a beautiful way to usher in this wonderful season. So of course I had to create my own sunflower appliqué.

 

I created a large and small version for you to enjoy. I also included some different ideas of how you can use your sunflowers.

I used Caron Simply Soft in Chocolate and Super Duper Yellow
G/4.5mm
Yarn Needle
Scissors

Measurements:

Small – 3 ½ “
Large – 4 ¼ “
Sunflower sizes can also be made larger by using a larger hook size,  or smaller by using a smaller hook size.

Stitches:

sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
tr – treble crochet
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
rnd – round
