Infinity bubbles scarf…

Nothing is what it seems and there’s a trick even behind this scarf!! If you give a first look at it, you can immediately recognize the bubble texture and think that it’s all thanks to the pop corn stitch. Well, the truth is that the same fluffy texture can be achieved in a way a lot easier and quicker , by simply alternating treble crochet and single crochet stitches.picVIt’s the different size of the two stitches that creates the magic! The treble crochet, a tall stitch, tends to fold on itself when it is between the two smaller single crochet stitches and this is where the puffy look comes from. This technique works better with a bulkier yarn since it will emphasize more the difference between the two stitches used.

picIVTo make this scarf I used 4 balls of Rugby yarn which make a total of 200 gr. I am sorry but I wasn’t able to find an online link for this product, but anyway you can buy any type of yarn with the same features. I chose this intense blue color which I am really into lately and my 8 mm crochet hook.

Except for the initial counting, that will give you the size of your scarf, there is no counting at all and this makes the pattern very relaxing and easy to follow.

I love wrapping my scarf at least twice around my neck, then I chained 110. Alternatively keep chaining until your piece will be approximately 140 cm long. Then join the first and last chain making sure your work doesn’t twist.

row1: ch1, *1 sc into the first ch, 1 treble crochet (tr) into the next ch*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row. Sl st into the first ch.

row2: ch4 (it counts as the first tr), *1 sc into the next tr, 1 tr into the next sc*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row. Sl st into the top of the intial ch 4.

row3: ch1, *1 sc into the first tr, 1 tr into the next sc*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row. Sl st into the first ch.

row4-end : keep repeating the sequence row1-row2 until your scarf will be about 22 cm wide.

Then fasten off your yarn.

I took advantage of a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon and went to the park near my house where I took some pictures with my new ‘bubble scarf’. Yes, I like to think of this amazing texture as bubbles..isn’t the same for you too?
