Since I got a lot of compliments on this particular scarf, and it really is sooo easy to do, I thought I’d put up the pattern so all of you aspiring knitters out there can give it a go! This scarf was originally featured in last week’s post.
What you will need:
- Size 13 (9mm) 29-inch round needles (really, far less intimidating than you think they are to use)
- At least 2 balls of bulky wool (I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Velvet)
1) Cast on 81stitches (make sure it’s an odd number, as you will have to drop one stitch when joining together with knitting in the round).
2) This scarf was actually done in a seed stitch, differen than what I previously stated (sorry, guys – was looking at another scarf pattern and frankly it’s been a few years since I’ve put this guy together! It’s still a very, very easy project). For information on how to seed stitch, check this out (if you can knit and purl, you can seed stitch).
2) Check out this YouTube clip on how to join yarn together when knitting in the round (saves time later and looks way neater!).
3) Continue straight knitting until you’re at your desired thickness (I honestly have no idea how many rows I did…I just do it by eye).
4) Cast off.
Ta-da! Gorgeous new infinity scarf/snood. Perfect for yourself or as a gift for someone else! Tips: Make sure your stitches aren’t crazy tight (loosen up a little, lady!), and that you leave plenty of tail for casting off. Let me know if you tackle this awesome, glorified tube!
*Shani – I’m sorry if I messed you up with the change in instructions!! Please forgive me!
