After making this infinity scarf for a dear friend I really wanted to make one for myself. I’m sure similar patterns must exist out there but this one came out of my head one evening after reading about a new-to-me stitch that I wanted to see in a finished project. This new stitch is a herringbone and I am in love with how it looks.
