Millie Infinity Scarf: A New Pattern from Brownie Knits!

A few weeks back I blogged about my obsession with infinity and silk scarves. Well, of course, that meant I needed some knitted ones for spring! Over the last few months, while I dreamed of spring, I have been working up a new pattern and today it is now available for purchase! Please meet Millie...


I had to get Kiki in on some of the photos...


...she wasn't into it! Check out that look in her eye.


The pattern is available for $2.99 in Ravelry, Craftsy, and Etsy.

Millie is a lightweight infinity scarf for spring and summer or for a warmer winter climate. Wear it with a jacket or as an accessory to your outfit. Millie is reversible and can be worn in a variety of styles, including around the neck (singled or doubled) or looped. Knitting a Millie Infinity Scarf is such fun because you can select a painted, variegated, or solid sock yarn, and because it is knit on larger-than normal needles for sock weight, the scarf works up quickly. The pattern is an easy one to remember and you fall into a knitting rhythm as you work in the round.
