Remembering Summer Infinity Scarf
REMEMBERING SUMMER INFINITY SCARF
The yarn that I used for this pattern has been expired. However, I provide 12 alternative yarn recommendations, as well as color combination recommendations (1, 2, 3, 4, or 7 colors) on my Remembering Summer Infinity Scarf Yarn & Color Recommendations blog post.
ABOUT THE PATTERN
As the days get cooler and shorter, it is fun to think back to warm, sunshiny days on the beach, surrounded with laughter and love, and relaxing to your heart’s content. This summer scarf does all of that, recalling the progression of spring through fall, including seeds, garden rows, rain, sunshine, buds, and blossoms.
This project is the perfect stash buster, especially with mini skeins! The scarf is designed to use (7) 20-gram mini-skeins. I used 7 differing colors, but feel free to adjust the color numbers and combinations as you wish. This pattern is easy to adjust in length -- just knit until you want to end that section! An entire section may be omitted if you’d like. Section lengths differ, because the scarf is designed to use a complete 20 gram mini skein.

A breakdown of colors:
Color 1: This color will be used for the plain, open field sections between each texture. I used gray, and I recommend a neutral color that can tie together all of the colors in your project. A speckled yarn would be perfect as well.
Color 2: This color will be used for the “Opportunity” section, which resembles a layer of seeds. I used dark orange, because it reminded me of the color of seeds before they’re planted.
Color 3: This color will be used for the “Potential” section, which represents rows of planted seeds in a garden or field. I used green, as we start to see little sprouts come out of the ground.
Color 4: This color will be used for the “Refreshing” section, which is the dropped stitches that look like rain falling on the seeds that have been planted. I used blue, because this is the color we most often associate with water.
Color 5: This color will be used for the “Hope” section, which is the bobble stitches, represents the sun that allows our plants to grow. I used light orange, because that is a color we often associate with sunshine.
Color 6: This color will be used for the “Life” section, which represents the beginning of sprouts and buds in the garden/field rows. I used dark turquoise, because it reminded me of the darkening leaves and buds.
Color 7: This color will be used for the “Beauty” section, which represents the flowers blooming into beautiful color. I used purple, because it seemed like the perfect blossoming color.
