Vajra infinity scarf – Pattern release!

Hello everyone! I am excited to share my latest pattern with you all – the Vajra infinity scarf. It is made using the cro-hook technique (using a double ended Tunisian crochet hook worked in a round). I am in love with the brioche effect that you can achieve with it.

Please leave me a comment if you like this pattern. I’d love to hear from you! You can add this pattern to your Ravelry queue. A print-friendly ad-free pattern is available for purchase in my Ravelry and Etsy shops. It is available at a 40% discount until Friday night (March 1st, 2019). No coupon code needed.

Do you all like diamonds? I am not a very big fan of diamonds in general (My husband is a very lucky man! :)) but I find black diamonds very interesting. They are very rare and are the primary inspiration for this pattern. The name Vajra means diamond in Sanskrit.

This is a reversible pattern and looks great both ways even though the front and back are very different (brioche in the front only).

I am very grateful to my dear friend Nidhi who volunteered to model for me. She is one of the sweetest people I know and I think the scarf looks great on her!

She decided to pair it with outfits of different colors and I think the scarf goes well with all of them!

I picked a gradient yarn for the background and I am very pleased by how it turned out. This was my first time working with the Scheepjes Whirl / Whirlette series – I used one Dandelion Munchies Whirl* and one Liquorice Whirlette*. I am very happy with the gradient and love how the fabric feels and drapes. I plan to try a few different colorways in my future patterns so they are going to show up a lot more on my blog 🙂

This is an intermediate level pattern so if you are looking for a bit of a challenge, this is for you!

  1. I love this scarf !! It goes well with so many outfits.. I’m sure that the pattern will work wonders on other colors too.. loved being a part of your creation and blog. I cannot say this enough – YOU ARE SUPER TALENTED! And have a great way with crocheting and knitting 🙂

  2. Stunning this is. Loved the way model has carried the scarf making it more attractive.

  3. Beautiful work! Just gorgeous! I’d like to make this as a scarf for a man (he’d like red foreground, navy background)… Shorter and not connected as an infinity scarf. Is there an easy secret to making it a straight scarf rather than an infinity scarf? It will be my first time doing something like this! But it’s so beautiful, I can’t help but try!

  4. Thank you Janean! I would love to see how it turns out for a man. To make it a straight scarf, you could start every row on the same side – That would mean that you will have to cut both colors at the end of every line and re attach at the beginning of the next line. And, you are welcome to join my Facebook hangout group to share pictures and ask any more questions:

    I am also planning to host a CAL that will start later in the month. You are welcome to join that too 🙂 I will post more details on my blog soon!

  5. WOW ! – and WOW ! again.
    I’m just knocked out by this beautiful cowl.
    As I know about the cro-hook; and as brioche is my favourite thing, Vajra is going to be added to the NFPs list (next favourite projects, of course).
    You’re about as creative as they come, Arunima !
