An infinity scarf is a bit more challenging than a regular scarf, but not so hard as to scare off beginners.
It’s a project that introduces a few essential techniques that will move you beyond noob territory and closer to the realm of hats, socks and mittens!
Best of all, this infinity scarf is knit with super bulky yarn, which produces a thick fabric that highlights the sculptural and springy qualities of garter stitch. Super bulky yarn also knits up quick for instant gratification! Win-win!
Materials & Notes
Yarn: 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rasta Super Bulky Yarn in color Pearl Ten
Recommended Needles: 1 pair of 32″ US 17/12mm circular needle (use a needle size that gives you the gauge listed below – every knitter’s gauge is unique!)
Finished Measurements: circumference is 50” and width is 7”
Gauge: 8 sts = 4″(10cm) in garter stitch
Using the long-tail cast on, cast on 100 stitches and join in the round, making sure not to twist stitches.
Place a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round.
Round 1: knit all stitches to end of round
Round 2: purl all stitches to end of round
Repeat these two rounds until piece measures 7″ or desired width.
Bind off loosely on a knit row and weave in ends.
