Today I am so excited to share with you the FREE crochet pattern for the Sunny Skies Infinity Scarf! The Sunny Skies Infinity Scarf was inspired by a YouTube tutorial I did for the Cable Crochet Stitch. I recently started getting requests for a pattern using that stitch, so the inspiration for this scarf was born. When I felt how lovely the King Cole Drifter 4ply yarn is, the yarn was calling to be used for this particular scarf.

About the yarn
The yarn used King Cole Drifter 4 ply. This yarn is a #2 / fingering weight yarn and is oh-so-lovely to work with; It’s light and airy and works up wonderfully. It’s a blend of 69% Premium Acrylic, 25% Cotton, 6% Wool and contains approximately 437 yards / 400 metres. This yarn can be machine washed on gentle in cool water and machine dried on the cool setting. In working with it, I found very few knots and it’s so soft on my hands.
This pattern is an EASY project. Therefore, a beginner could try this out, too. I showed a girlfriend that just recently started crocheting how to do this project, and she breezed through it in just a few days.
This free crochet pattern has been tested – thank you to all my lovely testers!

Repeat rows 1 – 2 until 58” / 147 cm, desired length or approximately 3 yds / 2.75m of yarn remain, then ch1.
With right sides facing, use stitch markers or scrap yarn to mark stitches intermittently through both sides in order to align all stitches prior to seaming.
