Be carefree with the Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf!

Inside: Loom knit Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf pattern with easy to follow tutorial video and chart.

I love water.

More specifically, I love the ocean. The salt air, the gentle breeze, the sound of the waves splashing on the shore. There are few things in life more relaxing than sitting by the ocean. Unless it’s sitting by the ocean at sunset.

I love the play of color as water and light dance with each other as waves ripple towards the sand.

I designed the Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf to reflect the sparking waves of color and transport me back to the beach. Summer may be over, but the memories don’t have to be.

Loom Knit Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf

By Kristen Mangus

This pattern is available as a downloadable PDF at the locations below:

This scarf features the sea foam stitch, a garter stitch pattern that uses dropped stitches of varying heights to create rippling waves. The Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf plays right along by creating movement in one color and then shifting to a two-color design and back again. Stitching it all together makes the waves and breezes continue forever in this fun infinity scarf pattern.

The sea foam stitch pattern is a multiple of 10+6.

Each 8-row repeat of the sea foam stitch pattern will add approx 1.75”+ to your scarf.

Kyo2x: Knit the peg and wrap the same peg 2 times with the working yarn.  Kyo3x and Kyo4x are worked the same way but with more wraps.  

Color changes can be carried along side of edge, but cutting yarn and weaving tail is recommended for best results. 

Block scarf before connecting ends.  Unblocked dropped sts create uneven ripples.

    Love this and going to try it! Would you know if the Loops & Threads Knit Quick Round Loom Set is the same as the KB Chunky Loom Set, ⅝ gage? I couldn’t find mention of the gauge on the Knit Quick package to know if it is. Is there an easy way to measure the gauge on a loom? Thank you!
