My Bellflower Infinity Scarf Pattern is probably my most popular design. It has been offered as a free pattern on Naturally Caron’s website and sadly Caron yarns has discontinued their line of Naturally Caron yarns and pulled their website and along with it, all their free patterns. So I am posting the pattern here for free on my blog.
The Bellflower Infinity Scarf was made originally in Naturally Caron Joy! yarn, but you can make it in any worsted weight yarn. The softer the yarn, the better– I recommend a yarn with a bamboo blend for a nice drape. You can have fun experimenting with lighter and heavier yarns and just see what you like. Just remember that a lighter yarn is going to result in a narrower and shorter scarf and a bulkier yarn is going to result in a wider and longer scarf, so plan accordingly.
