Free Crochet Pattern...Cherries In Bloom Infinity Scarf


Every spring, cherry trees bloom in a symphony of lacy, fragrant flowers. I love the contrast of the millions of delicate pale pink flowers contrasted by the sturdy, darker branches that provide support. This infinity scarf gives a nod to this springtime marvel with each stripe color paying homage to the strikingly beautiful blooms and branches. Crocheted lengthwise in chunky granny stripes, it is a perfect piece for those who are having springy thoughts while still needing to bundle up. 



Cherries In Bloom Infinity Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson


Materials:
  • N (9.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color A (Fig)
  • 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color B (Blossom)
  • 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Color C (Fisherman)
  • Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Note: You'll have some yarn leftovers from each skein, unless you make yours wider than shown.



Sizing:

  • Width-Scarf shown is 7 inches wide, but you can easily make your scarf wider by working more rows. 
  • Circumference-Scarf pictured is 66 inches long.


Instructions:

Scarf is worked in one color per row beginning with the light pink.

Ch 105 loosely (Note: multiples of three if you desire a different length).


Foundation Row:  In the 2nd chain from hook, work one sc.  Then work one sc in each ch all the way across.


Row 1:  Chain 3 and turn.  Make one dc into the first stitch and chain 1.   *Skip 2 stitches, then work 3 dc and ch 1 into next stitch.  Repeat from * to end of row, but in the very last stitch, only work 2 dc.


Row 2: Chain 3 and turn.  Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the first space (in between the 3 dc clusters from the previous row).  Then work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row.  In the last (turning chain) space, work 1 dc.

Row 3: Chain 3 and turn.  In the first space, work 1 dc, ch 1.  Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row.  In the very last (turning chain) space, work 2 dc.

Row 4: Chain 3 and turn.  Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space across row.  In the last (turning chain), work 1 dc in that top stitch.  (Note: The last dc is worked in the top stitch (loop, not space) this is because if is worked in the space it would "split" the cluster in half.  Working it in the stitch instead keeps the cluster intact, the rest of the pattern is worked in the spaces).

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until scarf is desired width.
  



Finishing:

Before you seam your scarf, if you wish, you can add a twist or a "mobius" to your infinity scarf:

Whip stitch the two ends together. Weave in all ends and you're finished!

  4. Hi Jennifer on that infinity scarf does it have to be wool can it be Lion Brand Super Bulky 100 % Acrylic? I'm a new at crocheting, only know how to make granny squares, and trial and error making up stitches that I found out where double crochets and my granddaughter brought me this yard and wanted me to make this scarf and I've never read a pattern before if I need help can you help me under stand reading patterns she wanted it for Christmas. I joined your blog. Thanks Ardie S.

  5. Thank you for this wonderful pattern. It was so easy to follow, and worked beautifully. I was looking for Christmas gifts to crochet, and came across this tutorial. Here is my finished project: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=677943648904140&set=ms.677943648904140.677943642237474.677943895570782.677946642237174.bps.a.677943002237538.1073741832.217980648233778&type=1&theater

  8. Almost done with mine. I used green, dark green and yellow. It looks decent but it seems loose, like I should have used a smaller hook size(I used 9 mm), but maybe my stitches are just not tight enough. Anyway, thank you so much for the pattern, I love it. :D

  10. Thanks for sharing this lovely pattern! Using different colors, but making it for a birthday gift for my boyfriend's amazing grandmother! Hopefully she will like it as much as I do! I'm going to make one for myself too before the cold sets in down here in the south! :) Thanks again!

  11. Beautiful pattern, just wondering how you finished the last row? Did you do any decrease scs so you had an even amount of stitches to make the beginning?

  12. love it! I just did this pattern with one color and added 12 extra stitches, to make a bit longer, looks and feels great! Thank you!

  13. Just printed out your raspberry buttercream infinity scarf pattern and realized that this blog was the same place I'd found this pattern! I made a "cherries in bloom" infinity scarf in November. I used three orange/rust shades from simply soft (persimmon and I can't remember the other two). It turned out lovely...I wear it with a pumpkin-y colored long sleeved tee and get lots of compliments. Thanks for sharing your patterns :)

  14. Hi Jennifer. New here and loving it! Is there a way to join this scarf's ends when you've completed the chain row so that it truly is an infinity scarf? It's just that I do not like seaming, and would prefer to have a seamless 'flow' when I make scarves. Many thanks!
