Loopy (An Infinity Scarf)

Image
"Loopy" is a neckwarmer that's made as a loop, a scarf with no ends. It can be made skinny or wide. It can be worn looped or unwrapped, or maybe even as a shawl or capelet if it was the right size.

Crochet Girl Garland Anklet Yarn: Acrylic Yarn in DK, Sport or Fingering Weight. Choose two colours to alternate the flower motifs. I chose purple and yellow.

Chain spaces at the tips of the pet
