This pattern was originally hosted as a 3-day crochet along (CAL) over Dec 9-11, 2016 by CAL - Crochet A Long group on Facebook.

Shin-yu 真友 (pronounced shin ewe/you) means true friends in Japanese. This infinity scarf was designed with my dearest friends in my heart. This crocheted cowl is worked up in 3 sections, starting with a Japanese old favorite stitch called pine stitch (松編み/matsu ami), known as a fan stitch in the west. A larger version of this simple stitch is expanded with special stitches in subsequent sections. Coupled with chain stitches placed throughout the pattern, the end result is a beautiful lacey scarf that would make a perfect gift for your 真友.

Difficulty: Adventurous beginner & intermediate

Yarn: Any weight yarn (recommended: Fingering/sock, DK)

Crochet Hooks: Corresponding to yarn weight; may need 2 different sizes depending on tension

Gauge: Not essential; Depends on yarn and hook used

Notions: Tapestry needle, Stitch marker (optional)

Size: Adjustable; Google “cowl length” for ideas

Note on Length: The pattern needs to start with a stitch count of {multiples of 40 } (e.g., 120, 160, 200, etc.). Therefore, choose a length range to target (for example, 24-26 inches) rather than an exact length.

Yardage: Yardage needed depends on yarn weight, cowl length, and your tension. One 100g skein of sock/fingering weight yarn will make a double wrap, while one 100g in double knit (DK) weight will make a single wrap.
