As much as I hate it when the wind starts blowing a little bit colder and I have to actually start wearing a jacket everywhere, I do love the fashion opportunities this type of weather brings. My favorite fall accessories, infinity scarves and cowls, are such simple but versatile pieces that really pull any outfit together. Plus, with so many types of fabric (yarn? cloth? silk?) and color (solids? patterned?) choices, the style possibilities are truly endless.
Crocheting your own infinity scarf is so easy, and there are so many patterns out there so anyone with any skill level can find something that suits him or her. You can stick with a simple, uncomplicated stitch pattern and a solid color if you’re a novice for a basic style staple, or you can work with lightweight yarn and incorporate lace designs and motifs if you’re more advanced. Infinity scarf patterns also range in warmth from a lightweight and purely decorate design for the hot summer months to a tight-stitched and chunky-weight piece for the icy winters. Then, from a construction standpoint, you can choose to work the scarf flat and then seam the ends together or start working in the round.
With the fall temperatures starting to set in, it’s time to start layering up slowly, and infinity scarves are the way to go. For my own personal style, I like to alternate between something of a medium weight with a bit of flair to it, like the Autumn Sunrise Scarf up and to the left, and the chunkier and cozier Frosted Snowflake Cowl on the right. I’m a very cold person so I much prefer the more weighty scarves than something purely decorative.
