(01.25.15 UPDATE) This post has been getting a lot of traffic lately, thanks for stopping by! This pattern, and all of my patterns assume a basic knowledge of knitting, i.e. you already know how to cast on and off and know basic stitches. Enjoy the pattern!
It’s December! It’s cold! It’s time for scarves and other warm things!
If you’ve been into any retail store the past month or so I’m sure you’ve seen these chunky knit accessories gracing every display shelf and mannequin. I thought they all looked so warm and cozy and not to mention FUN to make so I decided to make one of my own. Since it’s made out of thick yarn and huge needles this is a quick project that is perfect to work on road trips (or really any time you feel like knitting). Keep reading to see how I did it!
Chunky Infinity Scarf
- 2 Skeins Chunky Yarn – I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick in Taupe
- Size 17 Knitting Needles – Or the biggest needles you can find
- Tapestry Needle
I kept knitting until I had just enough yarn to sew the scarf together. The final dimensions were 11″ wide by about 60″ long.
Of course you could make the scarf wider or skinnier by casting on more or less stitches, just be sure to keep it an odd number so you can start every row with a knit stitch and not have to worry about what row you’re on.
Have fun with this project! It’s a doable project for any skill level and would make a great Christmas Gift!
