knitted infinity loop with crocheted edges
About this pattern:
A peregrination is a journey, traveling from place to place. The subtle nuance to this word is that it is a meandering, possibly circuitous, rambling journey. It is one of my favorite words, imbued with the promise of adventure taken at leisure.
Peregrination begins as a simple garter stitch infinity loop scarf knit in the round, and continues with two crocheted, arching edges reminiscent of arched doorways or soaring domes overhead. Long enough to wrap twice, but beautiful when left hanging down, Peregrination is a lightweight loop that you will find to be an excellent and versatile traveling companion.
You must be able to: knit and purl in the round on circular needles as well as make basic crochet stitches: single crochet, double crochet, chain, and slip stitch.
