Are you tired of spending your hard earned money on a crochet pattern only to find it poorly written? Is a free pattern or tutorial really better?
This is a series where I review a crochet pattern and give my honest opinion! I am doing these reviews secret shopper style! The pattern designer doesn't know!
This month's pattern review is the Airy Puff Infinity Scarf crochet pattern by Ello Baby Boutique. Please remember that this pattern review is just my own honest opinion! Scroll down to find out if I thought this pattern was a bargain or a bust!

Let's Talk Price!
This crochet pattern is available for $4.00 USD over on Ravelry. I did some searching around Ravelry and this pattern is priced fairly. I found a variety of patterns for infinity scarves and the priced ranged from $0.99-$5.50 US dollars.
As a fellow designer I know how much effort goes into writing a pattern so more often than not I respect a persons pricing. As a mom I also appreciate the occasional discount when I happen to stumble upon one! Ello Baby Boutique was kind enough to create a discount code for my readers! You can use code OSAGE at checkout and receive 50% until 7/13/19! The pattern is available on both Ravelry & Etsy!
Materials needed for this project:
-6.00 mm or 7.00 mm crochet hook

Was it a bargain or a bust? How do I overall rate the pattern?
The pattern was fairly easy to follow but I have been crocheting since I was 7-8 years old and I am 26 now. I used a combo of Gazzal Rock n Roll yarn and Premier Yarn Candy Shop. I followed the pattern exactly as written. I was able to casually finish this project in one day while still breaking to handle all of my other mom obligations.
Overall I would recommend this pattern! It would make a great addition to your craft fair arsenal. While it may not be a free pattern the price is still pretty reasonable! I don't mind paying for patterns because I am very familiar with the hard work that goes into them!
I really don't have any complaints or big critiques! It was a concisely written pattern. I personally just find infinity scarves daunting to make. (I have been on an amigurumi kick lately!) It's a good pattern if you want to add some variety to your scarf options for craft fairs or gift giving.
