I enjoyed the herringbone bootcuffs so much, I decided to make a scarf to go with them. I’m pretty happy with the infinity scarf that has resulted! Loops and Threads Charisma yarn is soft and cozy, which will make this a handy scarf to have in winter. Working alternately in back loops and front loops only adds a bit of texture, and the pretty pocket stitch around the edge adds flair. This one will make a great Christmas gift for anyone on your list.
What you’ll need:
Yarn: Loops & Threads Charisma, off-white; 2 skeins
Amount of time needed for project: About 4 episodes of Jane the Virgin

FLO=front loops only
HDC= Half-double crochet
Ch 132, join (note: if you want to make the scarf longer, be sure to increase in multiples of 3)
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as 1st HDC), Herringbone HDC in each stitch around (132 HDC). Do not join, continue working in the round and use a stitch marker to indicate the first stitch in round 2.
