The Getaway Crochet Infinity Scarf

But first, a story

One thing you’ll notice influences my crochet designs is travel. Whether it’s the colors I choose or the design itself, I often have travel in mind.

You see, in February of 2017 I brought up the idea of full-time RVing to my husband Todd. We both worked remotely. We had one daughter in college, one son about to graduate and another son begging to do online school and go on an adventure.

From the moment I brought up this idea to Todd, to the time we drove away from a house that no longer belonged to us and in our new home on wheels, it was 100 days.

Yep, you read that right. We executed this idea, from selling our house and about 90% of our belongings and buying an RV and a truck, in 100 days.

Needless to say, it was one exciting whirlwind.

We spent 17 months traveling full-time and in that time visited 36 states and 5 Canadian provinces.

You can read more of our story on our RV travel blog TREKKN.

I tell you all of this so you’ll know just how important travel is to me and how it truly dictates so many of my decisions in life. Including my crochet designs.

The Getaway Infinity Scarf Name

I named this scarf The Getaway Scarf because I never travel without one. It doesn’t matter what season it is, I throw a scarf in my bag.

If I’m on an airplane I’ll most likely get cold. And I’ve been on many airplane trips where that scarf has come in handy. Same for car trips.

This scarf truly is a perfect size, weight, and color to throw in your getaway bag for a fall or winter trip.

The Stitches

This crochet infinity scarf is made with the herringbone half double crochet stitch, going through the back loop only.

The stitch itself is beautiful. It has a slight slant to it, which gives your crochet project such a gorgeous look. But then when you add going through the back loop only, it creates a texture you’ll love having up close and personal as you wear it.

Here’s a quick tutorial showing you how to work the herringbone half double crochet stitch.

The Color + The Yarn

It only makes sense to make a scarf with the name ‘getaway’ in it, by using a yarn line that references some of my all-time favorite getaways – National Parks.

I’m talking about Lion Brand’s Heartland line, named after U.S. National Parks.

(Check out the Heartland link of yarn at LionBrand.com or Amazon.com as well.)

For this scarf, I chose Smoky Mountains, which is a beautiful neutral dark gray color.

I also highly recommend visiting this National Park. Not only is it free to enter, but its the most visited National Park and for good reason. One visit and you’ll quickly see where it gets its name from.

Here’s a picture from our trip to this beautiful destination.
