Puff Stitch Chevrons Make The Best Texture Ever

Two classics collide and the results are SO worth it. Puff stitches give this pattern all the texture, but they don't complicate the chevron shaping one bit — that happens on totally different rows. In other words, this deliciously textured, delightfully zig-zaggy pattern is easier than it looks.

This easy (and quick!) crochet infinity scarf is the perfect for those times when you need to make something and you need it done now (come on, I know I'm not the only procrastinating crafter out there). What makes this project so quick? Crochet is almost always fastest when you work the same stitch across a row and the same stitch for many rows. That's exactly what this cowl brings to the table: the first half of the scarf is worked in half double crochet and the rest is double crochet. Simple. Fast. Perfect.
