The Violet Tones Infinity Scarf is super soft with lots of drape. It is truly a sampler-type project because it uses lots of different basic stitches. This makes for a fun and engaging project that is perfect for both newer crocheters to learn and practice and for seasoned crocheters who are after something simple and engaging.
The Violet Tones Infinity Scarf, with its sampling of stitches, was inspired by our summer CAL, the Crochet Class Cowl pattern.

Note: The Caron Simply Soft Eco contains white "flecks" that are actually recycled plastic bottles (pretty neat!). You can kind of see them in the photo above...they have a slight tweed-like effect. If you're into a more solid color appearance, try the regular Caron Simply Soft.

How to make a "spike" in the row: The elongated stitch, or "spike" in the row is created by working a single crochet as you normally would, but when working the stitch, insert the hook a few rows down. Work the stitch as usual and proceed to the next stitch. This photo tutorial will show you how:
How to Work the Blanket Stitch
Foundation Row: In second ch from hook, work a sc. Work a sc in each ch to end of row.
Row 1: Ch 4 and turn. Work a tr in first st and in each st to end of row.
Row 2: Repeat row 1.
Row 3: Ch 3 and turn. Work a dc in first st and in each st to end of row.
Row 4: Repeat row 3.
Row 5: Ch 2 and turn. Work a hdc in first st and in each st to end of row.
Row 6: Repeat row 5.
Row 7: Ch 1 and turn. Work a sc in first st and in each st to end of row.
Row 8: Repeat row 7.
Row 9 (Change colors before beginning this row): Ch 1 and turn. In the first st, work a sc. In the next st, work a sc. In the next st, work a "spike" by inserting the hook a few rows down and then work a sc stitch as you normally would. Keep following this sequence (sc, sc, spike) until you reach the end of the row.
Repeat rows 1-9 until desired length is reached, ending on row 8.
Weave in any ends and seam the ends of the scarf together. You can sew it with a tapestry needle and some matching yarn or slip stitch it together.
