Crochet the Faded Stripe Infinity Scarf with hand dyed yarn and the moss stitch. The subtle fade create an ombre effect that looks great in any color! Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Crochet an Infinity Scarf with the Moss Stitch
The moss stitch creates an infinity scarf with beautifully flowing stripes by combining three different colors. This infinity scarf can easily be made in any length by adjusting the number of rows, and you can also customize it by adding additional colors.
Crochet the Moss Stitch Infinity Scarf with Hand Dyed Yarn
Something that makes this scarf really special is that it is made with beautiful hand dyed yarn. These colors that I picked from my order of Sewrella Yarn weren't made to go together, but with the gradient stitching it looks like they were!
Make this Cowl with Scrap Yarn or Stash Leftovers
No hand dyed yarn in your stash? No problem! The moss stitch combined with this striping technique can be used with any yarn that you have on hand. Play with different color combinations to find your favorite!
