Crocheted Infinity Scarves

Sharing two Infinity scarves crocheted for my sister and a friend using
Melanie Ham's pattern which you can find HERE on her blog and HERE on YouTube

For my sisters scarf, I used 2 x 50g balls of Stylecraft DK, Batik Elelments
in the shade Titanium 


I purchased this yarn from The Cheap Shop, Tiptree, Essex


For my friend's scarf I used 1 x 100g ball of James C. Brett Stonewash DK
in the shade: SW14 Heather


I purchased this yarn from Hobbycraft and used a 5mm crochet
hook for both.


These are easy projects to make and are good for making 'on the go',
as everything fits into a zip-lock bag.

A Crocheted Throw/Blanket

 Today, I am sharing a crocheted throw blanket I made for one of my great nieces. 

I used the lovely textured Sedge stitch which I found HERE on 
the 'Blossom Crochet' YouTube channel.
Rebekah’s tutorials are really easy to follow and she has lots of different
 crochet stitches to share.

I started by deciding how wide I wanted the throw to be. 
I chained 141 stitches, and crocheted rows of the same stitch until I 
reached the desired length.

I finished by crocheting a border of four rows of half trebles.

I purchased the yarn online from The Wool Box
using eight 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the colour ‘Lavender’
