This week is all about the CB Infinity scarf! A few weeks ago I introduced you the cherry blossom and we learned how to work this stitch in turned rows. In this post you will learn to work this same stitch in continuous rounds. Learning to work the stitch this way will get you ready to make your Raven Kimono that is due to release later this month.
If you read my last post then you will already know that this is the picture that inspired it all. Sass, class, and a bit of smart ass! That is Raven.
The CB Infinity works up quickly. What I love most about this stitch is how it doesn't get boring, since it is worked over four rows to complete on sequence it will keep you engaged yet not overwhelmed.
CB Infinity is step two in learning what you will need to know to crochet the Raven Kimono. It is worked in continuous rounds so you will not join or turn at the end of each round.
I think what truly sets this pattern apart from other patterns is how one round seamlessly works into the next. At the end of one round you will immediately start the next round with the first stitch of the next round and it will actually belong there! So see how this plays out.
Yarn: approximately 350yd, #3 DK or similar weight yarn. I used 1.5 skeins of Lion Brand Truboo; 3.5ox/100g; 241yd/220m; color Seafoam
Hook(s): 3.5mm/ E, Yarn Needle, Scissors, Stitch markers
What you will look for between labels is,
Is the weight the same?
Are the fibers similar, such as Acrylic, wool, alpaca, nylon, etc.?
Is the gauge similar or close enough to make it work?
Are the recommended hook sizes the same?
Another piece of information you can look for is the number of wpi (wraps per inch). This information is not always available so me be more difficult to compare.
10 puff sts / 6 puff rows = 4” / 10cm of worked pattern
To make a swatch begin the pattern and work the row repeats until you have a 6x6 square, measure from the outer most part of the first puff st to the 4”/ 10 cm mark. Count how many puff sts are within that 4”/ 10 cm. To measure rows, find the lowest point of the triple puff stitch (tpst); measure from this point to the 4”/ 10 cm mark. Count the number of puff rows within that 4”/ 10 cm.
Length- 20” /51 cm
Width- 4”/ 10 cm
Yo- yarn over
Dc- double crochet
Tpst- triple puff stitch
Puff (puff stitch)- (yo, insert hook, yo, draw up loop) 3 times in same st or sp, with 7 loops on hook; yo, pull through all loops on hook, ch1. Note: this ch-1 is a closing stitch and not an independent ch st.
Tpst (triple puff stitch)- (puff, ch2, puff, ch2, puff, ch1) all worked in same stitch or space
The number before the abbreviation represents how many times to work the same stitch into the appropriate stitch. Ex: 2sc = work two single crochet into the next stitch.
The number after the abbreviation represents how many times to work one type of stitch consecutively. Ex: sc2 = work one single crochet into each of the next two stitches.
Numbers within < > represent the total number of stitches per row.
Stitch combos are shown within ( ) and worked into the same stitch of the previous row.
Stitch sequence repeats are represented within * * and followed by the number of times they repeat.
ch 184; being careful not to twist your chain, sl st into the 1st chain, ch1
Rnd 1: sc in same chain sp, ch2; sk3, 3dc in next, ch2; sk3, sc in next, ch2, sk3, 3dc in next, ch2 repeat from * to * around; sc into next sc, place sm, ch1. (continue to move the stitch marker at the end of each round)
Rnd 2: Tpst in 2nd dc of the 3 dc cluster of previous row, ch1; sc in next sc, ch1; tpst in 2nd dc of the 3 dc cluster, ch1; repeat from * to * around; tpst in 2nd dc , ch2.
Rnd 3: Sc in top of 2nd puff of the next tpst, ch2; 3dc in next sc, ch2, sc in top of 2nd puff of tpst ch2; repeat from * to * around, tpst in 2rd dc of next 3dc cluster, ch1.
Rnd 4: Sc in next sc, ch1; tpst in 2nd dc of 3 dc cluster of previous row, ch1; sc in next sc, ch1; repeat from * to * around to last sc of previous rnd, ch2, sc in top of 2nd puff of next tpst, ch2.
Rnd 5: 3dc in next sc, ch2; sc in 2nd puff of tpst, ch2; 3dc in next sc, ch2; repeat from * to * across, sc in last sc, ch1.
Repeat rows 2-5 until the scarf measures 4 inches wide, or until desired width.
Weave in all ends and enjoy!
