Inspiration of the Cobblestone Infinity Scarf
The Cobblestone infinity scarf was inspired as I designed the crocheted “Birthday Sorbet” baby blanket for Mary Maxim. When they shipped me the yarn, they surprised me with a couple of skeins of the Mary Maxim “Purely Soft” yarn and it just screamed to me to be an infinity scarf…so, the Cobblestone Infinity Scarf was born!
When I shared the design with Mary Maxim, they liked it so much that they created a kit from it! If you’d like to check out the kit, please visit: https://shrsl.com/3zdp9 and check out the “Related Kits” section.
About the yarn
The Mary Maxim “Purely Soft” yarn has a squishiness that is simply uncomparable to any other yarn I’ve ever worked with. Have you ever walked down the yarn aisle and just couldn’t stop squishing one particular yarn?? Yep…this is like that! It’s so soft and light!
Each skein has approximately 147 yards / 135 metres and is 70% Premium Acrylic & 30% Polyamide. The skein is 5.3 oz / 150 grams and is a #5 / Bulky weight yarn.
The Cobblestone Infinity Scarf uses size US 10.5 / 6.5 mm knitting needles and uses 2 skeins of the Purely Soft yarn.

About the Cobblestone Infinity Scarf
The Cobblestone Infinity Scarf is a quick and easy project to work up as a last-minute gift or as a little something to keep yourself warm that uses bulky yarn and large knitting needles, so that it comes together quickly. The Mary Maxim “Purely Soft” yarn used for this scarf is really unique and, I think, is what makes this scarf stand out. It’s very soft and has a gorgeous halo that really adds amazing texture. This pattern is easily adjusted to make larger or smaller, as the stitch pattern is worked in multiples of 2 with a 4 row repeat. To get the same striping effect, there is a color placement chart that shows the color and which row to repeat.
