Well I started an infinity scarf in February, but with the move, new job, etc – I just finished it! And just in time for next year – yeah!!! A friend of mine had one and she always looked so cozy that I had to make one. I could not find a pattern that I liked so I went to my handy and favorite knitting book The Knitters Bible by Claire Crompton. I love this book it has so many patterns, ideas and helpful how-to’s.
3 – 4 skeins yard ( I used chunky, 100 g per skein, approximately 121 yards per skein)
Size 10 1/2 straight needles
K2tog – knit 2 stitches together
yo – yarn over
ssk – slip 2 stitches one at a time, knit 2 slipped stitches together (1 stitch decrease)
sk2po – slip 1 stitch , knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over (2 stitch decrease)
Cast on 41 stitches (the pattern is in multiples of 8 plus 1).
Row 1: Right Side (RS) – K1, *K1, K2tog, yo, K1, yo, ssk, K2; repeat from * to end
Row 2 and every WS (wrong side) row: Purl
Row 3: K1, * K2tog, yo, K3, yo, ssk, K1; repeat from * to end
Row 5: K2tog, * yo, K5, yo, sk2po; repeat from * to end, ending last rep with ssk
Row 7: K1, * yo, ssk, K3, K2tog, yo, K1; repeat from * to end
Row 9: K1, * K1, yo, ssk, K1, K2tog, yo, K2; repeat from * to end
Row 11: K1, * K2, yo, sk2po, yo, K3; repeat from * to end
Row 12: Purl
Repeat these 12 rows until you have the length you want. Mine measured 63″.
End with a purl row and then cast off.
1. Weave in all ends
2. Press and block your scarf
3. Match right sides together and sew the ends together.
Your scarf is ready
