Horseshoe Pattern Hat and Scarf (Part One)

Horseshoe Infinity Scarf

Casey modelling her presents

I made this set for a really good friend of mine. She wanted an infinity scarf, but that was the only request, so I decided to try out a stitch pattern I found in an old knitting book. I really like the way it worked out. It’s called a horseshoe stitch, even though I think it looks more like leaves or something. Enjoy 🙂
