We have yarn stashes for a reason, right? It’s about creating and mixing and experimenting. Most of the time, I stick to what I know but every once in a while, two skeins of yarn will end up side-by-side somewhere and I think, those look nice together! And this was one of those times. Some of my new Go For Faux from Lion Brand was laying on the floor and while I went through my Caron x Pantone yarns, these ended up together. So I went with it!
These fur yarns are so soft that you just want to rub them on your face, so what better to work first with them than an infinity cowl that will sit close to your neck and face? Caron x Pantone yarns are known for being super soft and luxurious. so you can imagine what this scarf feels like!
Alternating the colors with the fur gives this an interesting texture when it’s worn. I love this pairing!
Here is a quick guide to how I put this cuddly girl together. I won’t call it a pattern since it’s not exact, depending on your tension, but this is the general idea:
1 Skein Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn (Baked Alaska shown)
1 Braid Caron X Pantone yarn (Peach Blush Parfait shown)
1 Crochet Hook Size N (10mm)
1 Yarn Needle
Using your Go For Faux, chain 13
Row 1: work 1 hdc in the 2nd chain from hook and one hdc in each stitch to end (12 st)
Row 2-4: Ch 1, turn, hdc in blo of each stitch to end (12 st)
Switch to first color of your Caron x Pantone
Row 5: Ch 1, turn, 2 hdc in first st, *1 hdc, 2 hdc* to end (17 st)
Continue rows with your Caron x Pantone until you have used all of the first color, approx. 8-10 rows, depending on your tension.
Switch back to Go For Faux
Row 1: Ch 1, turn, work 1 hdc in first 2 st, *skip next st, 2 hdc* to end (12 st)
Row 2-4: Ch 1, turn, work 1 hdc in each st to end (12 st)
Repeat the above, alternating between the fur yarn and your colors until you have worked the last color ball, leave enough yarn for stitching scarf closed (if desired)
If you would like to keep the scarf open, work another set of 4 fur rows and finish off, weaving in ends.
If you want to make an infinity scarf, finish off last color with a long tail for sewing.
Using a mattress stitch, stitch first fur row and last color row together and finish off, weaving in ends.
Enjoy your new cuddly creation!!!
Happy Hooking, Hookers!
