Part of my 2012 pledge to myself is to cleanse…to rid myself of useless “stuff” that’s just taking up space in my new little apartment (pictures coming soon!).
First up is to work my way through my yarn stash. I’ve taken up and given up on knitting since high school…but I really want to get back into it now. I’m learning new stitches and experimenting with cool patterns…and my latest discovery: how to knit an infinity scarf!
This pattern is easy to follow and best of all, FREE! Knit scarf patterns are totally adoptable, so feel free to experiment with length, color, width, etc.
These directions create a super comfy two-color infinity scarf. It’s made using Ridged Ribbon Eyelet stitch, but you can do the good ol’ K2, P2 if you’d like. I will say, though, that Eyelet stitch is so easy and fun, once you get the hang of it!
Two-Tone Infinity Scarf
1 skein of white yarn
1 skein of teal yarn
Size 8 knitting needles
Cast on 21 stitches.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: Knit.
Row 5: *Knit 2 together, yarn over*. Repeat from * * to last stitch. Knit last stitch.
Row 6: Knit.
Repeat row 1-6 42 more times.
If you’d like, switch to another color and repeat rows 1-6 15 more times…or you can just continue with the first color for 15 more rows.
Bind off and weave in ends.
To make the scarf continual, you’ll need to sew the two ends together. I used the teal yarn and a tapestry needle for this step. Join the two sides together so the wrong side is facing out. Then simply weave the yarn through the first stitch on the white row and the first stitch on the teal row. Continue working your way down the row until the scarf is knitted together. Weave in ends.
And there you have it! Warm infinity scarves like this can be worn indoors and out…I wear mine almost all the time! I’m going to try crocheting a flower in the coming weeks to add to it. I’ve never crocheted before, so any helpful advice would be appreciated!
If you use this infinity scarf pattern, feel free to post your new scarf on the Hob-bee Hive Facebook page! I’d love to see how yours turned out!
