Dream Puff Messy Bun Beanie & Infinity Scarf

The Dream Puff Set was designed with Caron Cakes in mind, you can make both the Messy Bun Beanie and Infinity Scarf from a single Caron Cake!

I’m a huge fan of brightly coloured self striping yarn and managed to accumulate quite a stock pile of Caron Cakes last year when I wrote this pattern. I seem to only ever buy a single cake in each shade so I had been on the hunt for a good single cake pattern, there were a ton of infinity scarves and scarves but I really enjoy matching sets so I designed one.

The trick to making sure you have enough yarn for both pieces is to make the messy bun beanie first, then use whatever yarn is left to make the infinity scarf. Easy.

You can substitute any worsted weight yarn you like, the dream puff set looks fantastic in every yarn!

  • One Caron Cake from Yarnspirations or Approximately 380 yards of worsted weight yarn

  1. Thank you! I have a Caron cake over from a blanket project. Now I know what to do AND I can wear the beanie and scarf to games with my matching lap blanket!!!

  2. As soon as I saw this I wanted to try and make it! I have a question: For the brim, row 6 “sc in the third loop of each stitch around”. There is a third loop on a HDC, but these are fpdc…. can you explain how to do this into a dc? I can’t find anything on YouTube that would help…. THANKS!
