A Mixed Stitch Crochet Beanie with Tons of Texture
Welcome to another pattern in our Seven ONEderful Skeins pattern collection.

The simple 3 row repeat of easy, texture enhancing stitches make this infinity style scarf one that anyone would be happy to have!
Seven ONEderful Skeins
Welcome to Seven ONEderful Skeins - the spin off from my popular Seven Days of Scarfie pattern event. This year all of our patterns will be made with one skein of simple worsted weight acrylic, BUT I also made them with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. You get to decide what yarn you're going to use. But one way or the other - we are going to make 7 projects in 7 days with 7 skeins (or less) of yarn!
I hope that you love each of these pattern collections as much as I do!

Modify the Gingersnap Scarf to Suit Your Style
You can see that I crocheted the Gingersnap Scarf in both worsted weight acrylic yarn and Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. I wanted to highlight how stunning pieces can look either way! The solid colored yarn really allows the textured stitches to shine, while the ombre effect of the Scarfie yarn adds its own visual interest. You also have the option to keep going with the pattern to adjust the length, leave it open so that it's not an infinity scarf. There are so many ways to modify this pattern to suit your taste! I can't wait to see what yours looks like.
