Wow, how many knitting projects can I have going all at once? Today I counted 5!
There is a dark red sweater vest for Brice's Christmas outfit, a scarf for our church donation, an unfinished infinity scarf and the new infinity scarf. Not included is the hat I've slowly been making myself! Hmmm...do I start projects and not finish sometimes....yes.
But here is a pattern for one I did finish! Have you seen or heard of infinity/cowl scarves? Basically they are a long, wide loop. Super comfortable and easy to wear. Here's a pattern that I made up.
For a scarf that is about 80" around and 8 inches wide you will need:
size 15 (10mm) circular knitting needles
a chunky ball of yarn - I used a super bulky acrylic yarn. It called for size 11 needles and had 104 yards.
basic knitting/purling skills.
Cast on 120 stitches. Place a marker and join, careful not to twist. Knit 2 purl 2 all the way around (and around and around!)
Be careful when you are going to cast off. I recommend ending with WAY more yarn than you think you will need - definitely don't want to cast off halfway around and run out!
