Take it easy with the knit Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf

Inside: 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.

Needle Knit Coral Breezes Infinity Scarf

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.
