It’s late November 2015. I’m in a major cro-jo funk since my nanny had passed at the beginning of the month and I had just finished a week long visit to see my pop-pop in Arizona. It’s coming dangerously close to Christmas and I had nothing for my mom. I was starting to think I was going to have to buy something (when was the last time I bought someone a gift…?) because I just didn’t have it in me to pick up a hook.
I’m not sure exactly what got me started again but this was the first thing I sat down and started and finished since my funk. I wanted something to match the hat I made her earlier in the year. I stumbled on Dandelion Daze’s Chevron Infinity Scarf pattern and fell in love! I used RHSS in Black and Dark Orchid with a 6.0mm hook. I used her pattern exactly for the width and chevron look but not stripe order.
The coolest thing about her pattern was that she used a random stripe generator and it is amazing!! All I had to do was click my colors, how wide I wanted each stripe to be, and how many total rows I wanted. I just went with it a checked off 1-20 rows wide and I believe 200 rows total. Then I clicked the “Generate My Stripes” button and kept clicking refresh until I found a layout I liked. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
The one thing I did make sure of was that my first and last rows were the same color. I didn’t worry about that on the generator but just worked it in. I also bordered each side in black.
Now she has a truly one of a kind scarf! I need to make one for myself in a couple different colors I think. Definitely some pinks. Maybe a dark blue. Or a gray! The possibilities are endless!!
