Chevron Infinity Scarf

Astri over at Apple Blossom Dreams is total inspiration when it comes to crochet.  She makes the most fabulous things, with the prettiest color combinations ever.  I am always in awe of her talent.

One of the things I like best about her blog is that she takes the time to post great pictures and tutorials, especially for those of us who are crochet challenged.  Like me! 

In December Astri shared a tutorial for a chevron infinity scarf that I fell in love with.  I had never even tried a ripple pattern, but her photos were so clear and her tutorial was so well written that I was inspired to give it a try.

I crochet very slowly and it took me almost a month, but here it is....

 




If you'd like the link to her tutorial, here it is.
 
 
Thank you Astri for all your help and encouragement.  Go check out her blog and be inspired!

  1. Very nice! One of my grandmothers made scads of ripple afghans in the 60s and 70s.

  6. Excellent Kim! The colors are awesome and the scarf looks so cute with the polka dots. I'm particularly fond of polka dots. You did a really nice job on this project. Thank you so much for all your kind words and the link up. :-)

  9. That's really beautiful! I'm really impressed. I don't crochet -- or at least, I crochet whatever little project they give me every time I take a class at JoAnn's but then forget the skill as soon as I stop. But projects like this make me think again that I should really learn. :)
