The One With Koi

Lookee here! A post on time. This here is solid proof that wonders will truly never cease.

Last week I kinda sorta promised you an infinity scarf pattern, and here it is! It’s a One Skien Wonder to help you use up some of that gorgeous yarn that you bought only to realise that you don’t have enough to really do anything 😦

(Or it’s an excuse to go out and buy more yarn, because now you have a pattern for it!)

The yarn is hand dyed by Dyeing 4 Ewe, who creates the yummiest colour combos! She was at a market we had a stall at a few weeks ago and somehow, I don’t really know what happened, I ended up with two skeins. Koi Scarf

Of different colours.

Both with predominantly orange, for some odd reason *shrugs in confusion. (My P-I-C reckons that the yarn reminds her of a koi pond)

And after I brought them home I soon realised that I had no idea what to do with them, spent a couple of hours on Pinterest and in the end decided to create my own scarf.

And let me tell you, that wasn’t the easiest thing in the world! After many do-overs and crocheting the last third with a broken hook because I somehow cracked it but didn’t want to go to the shop to get another one, I wanted to keep crocheting and the discovery of a mistake near the beginning when I was near the end, I bring you the Koi Infinity Scarf! Enjoy, and please use the hashtag #knotwhatitseams on Instagram when you’ve finished, we would love to see your completed creation πŸ™‚

I will be putting the pattern up onΒ Knot What It Seams, but just for you lovely people it’s here free πŸ™‚
