The Lacy Infinity Scarf pattern is the most popular post on my blog, and I get tons of compliments as well as questions about it both in the comments and in e-mails.
I decided to make a tutorial for those of you who need extra help with this project. I hope it will be helpful.
For the demonstrative purposes I use red yarn. I think the pictures are pretty much self-explanatory, but I will make some comments about the ends of rows (that’s the trickiest part).
When you get to the end of row 2, the pattern reads: dc in last dc.
Note that in reality it's not a dc at all, it's actually a turning chain (but as some of you might know, turning chains oftentimes "act" as double crochets).
When you have made the last shell of row 3, you have a turning ch-6 left.
Here make a dc into 2nd ch (counting from bottom) of the turning ch-6.
Then you simply repeat rows 2 and 3.
When you get to the end of row 2, once again you are not making a dc into an actual dc, but into a turning ch-3.
In order to keep your edges straight, make that last dc not into 3rd, but into 2nd ch of turning ch-3 (this is a little trick that I came up on my own).
In the picture below I show you what a difference it can make for your edge:
Another question that I get quite often is how to make the twist.
Here is how:
Lay your scarf on a flat surface.
Flip one end to the other side to form a twist. Maintaining that twist, stitch the ends together.
