Guest Post with Carissa Miss

Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to introduce Carissa here. She has a lovelier than lovely blog and I'm so incredibly envious of her cooking/crocheting/everything talents! She has a wonderful tutorial for us today, so enjoy!


Hi! I'm Carissa from the blog carissamiss. I love the process of creating; whether it is building our own kitchen table, refinishing furniture, or sewing something from scratch! I also love working in Photoshop--editing photos, designing announcements or cards, and creating printables.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial! I know you've been wanting one of your own! I can't wait to share this little project with you. We have a bunch of birthdays in January, and since I'm still recovering {financially, emotionally, mentally, etc} from the craziness of the holidays, I always seem to do last minute things for gifts. That's totally not my style and I feel bad for my sister in law and three of my sisters and two nieces that all have birthdays in January.

This year, I resolved to do differently. I think I succeeded. Well, partially at least. I've seen these adorable chunky scarves at Nordstrom, Soel, and lots of other great retail stores and I knew I could do one for myself! However, Eliza needed a scarf more than I did, and I haven't seen many infinity scarves for toddlers {or any scarves for that matter}, so I decided to make one for her first. Well, it turned out more than adorable. Best part? It didn't take more than a half hour. {Or that it was only 1 skein of yarn, or that it was only $3...}so I made one for all my nieces :) And now you can whip some up for all the little fashionistas in your life.

Here's the pattern:

I used  lion brand yarn in Los Angeles tan. super bulky weight 6. Crochet needle N size 9mm
chain 28 and join in a round with a slip stitch {make sure to keep from twisting}
chain 2, double crochet into next chain. double crochet 26 more times. {28 double crochet total, including chain 2} slip stitch into chain 2.
repeat 7 times for 8 rows. knot and weave in ends. 

feel free to ask me for any clarifications! 





Stay tuned for the adult-sized version!

Oh my cuteness, how adorable is Carissa's little model? I love this scarf and think I might need one for myself. Ha! Thanks for sharing such a great tutorial, Carissa! This is so cute and not only are your sisters-in-law and nieces extremely lucky to have you in the family, your cute daughter is as well! I hope you can all hop over and see my extremely simple tutorial I'm sharing over at Carissa's place today as well!
