Hummingbird Cake is a favorite served on Southern Menus, and because of its rich flavor, many tasters assume it’s also made of rich, ingredients. In fact, it garners that rich flavor in combining three mildly exotic fruits, and one not so exotic nut: bananas, coconut, pineapple and pecans. It’s frosted in the velvety everyday condiment known as Cream Cheese. And yet, when these simple ingredients are combined the result is a rich, complex bakery experience. The secret to a successful Hummingbird Cake comes in the specific way the ingredients are combined.

The same holds true for this lovely Infinity Scarf lovingly named Hummingbird Cake. Combine 3 different colors of chunky yarn knit using garter stitch with a simple added edge technique. The result is a rich looking, finished knit that looks fabulous dressed up or as a completer piece to a basic outfit. Everyone will assume it was far more complex to make that it really was.

This infinity scarf is a wonderful pattern for a newbie knitter. It will help build several new skills without being stressful. Video links are included with the pattern so that all the techniques are clearly demonstrated. The pattern is written simply and with a lot of extra instructions to help a new knitter better understand what to do.
