Various Shells Infinity Scarf

If you like all of these great freebies and deals, make sure you sign up for my newsletter.  


I'm not sure how many of you crochet but it has become my new obsession again.  My grandmother taught me a long time ago, when I was in elementary school.  


Through the years, I've gone through cycles of crocheting where I do it non-stop and then don't do it again for years.  Well, I started crocheting again when I got real sick a couple of months ago and couldn't do anything else.  You know when I pretty much disappeared the last few months.  I even ended up in the hospital but that is another story.

So, anyway, I designed this infinity scarf.  It is pretty easy and uses 3 different shell stitches.  I hope you like it.  Please let me know if you have any problems with the directions.  This is my first time writing a pattern.  I'd love to see your scarves, too.  Here we go.
