My first Spring project has been testing the gorgeous Athens Infinity Scarf for Miranda of I Don’t Give a Knit
For this project I used Caron Simply Soft in Soft Green. This is the first time I have used this yarn and I am really impressed. The colour is perfect for making any outfit look good for spring, with the slight shine to the yarn itself helping to give more depth to the colour.
The detail of the stitches leaves a lovely airy feel to the piece. And the drape on this is gorgeous. In her pattern are easy to follow instructions for each of the stitches used so there is none of that annoying googling each stitch to find a Youtube video just to get started!
The pattern itself is very easy to follow and I completed it in roughly 3 hours since I had quite a few breaks between. It was super easy to pick up and leave off as the repeat is fairly recognisable and allows you to jump back in whenever needed. Another great spring/ summery yarn for this pattern would be to use Paintbox yarns DK cotton. It would make the scarf a little airier and perfect for warmer weather.
To make your own Athens scarf don’t forget to follow Miranda on Instagram where you can find details to get her pattern.
