infinity scarf pattern

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! 


  1. Do you mean 2 purl and 2 regular knit?

  2. Just finished knitting mine! Absolutely perfect, and so much cheaper than buying one. :)
