Oversized scarves are such a popular trend right now, as they always add such a luxurious touch to any outfit, especially when they’re in sophisticated neutrals, resulting in timeless pieces to be added to your wardrobe… This happens to be the very reason why I was delighted when “We Are Knitters” reached out to me to see if I might be interested in designing a fun and chic crochet pattern using their chunky wool!
I jumped at the opportunity as I’ve been a massive fan of their yarns and wools since months ago when I crocheted up their Samasana Blanket, a extra soft and cosy blanket to snuggle underneath thanks to their gigantic balls of lush wool!
For this Marshmallow Infinity Scarf I knew that their chunky 100% Peruvian Wool would be the perfect fit, as it comes straight from the Peruvian Andes and is very soft to the touch (just like a plushy marshmallow). They had over 35 shades for me to choose from, making the colour selection all the more fun yet also tricky. In the end I landed upon this gorgeous hue, “Pearl Grey“, which I felt closely resembled all those marshmallows I ate as little girl!
Here is a close-up of “The Wool”! Doesn’t that texture look like the most perfect thing to snuggle in this Winter? Now that I had a basket full of some of the most beautiful wool known to crocheters, it was time to search for the perfect stitch to use for this design. Crochet has always been my forte (unlike knitting), so when I recently discovered the “Crunch Stitch” I knew it would be a match made in heaven. This stitch has one of the loveliest textures I’ve seen in a while, that I happily found closely resembles the purl stitch in knitting!
I used my 20mm crochet hook for this infinity scarf, which not only gave the scarf an airy and lovely flexible feel, but because I used a jumbo hook with such chunky yarn the scarf itself worked up in not time at all!
I’ve really loved working together with the creative team over at “We Are Knitters” on this fun design!.. Don’t forget that you can use my code “HONEY4WAK” to get 20% off your orders (good until the start of March)… And guess what, they are now shipping to Australia too! *claps hands excitedly*
