SEED STITCH INFINITY SCARF
Materials you will need:
- 3 hanks / 300g of Billow by KnitPicks
- size 11 US straight needles that are at least 10 inches in length
- darning needle
6.5 stitches x 8 rows = 2 inches square
I know we haven't talked about gauge yet, so for the purpose of this pattern I only want you to use this as a rough guide. If the gauge of your knitted piece is slightly different that's ok because this is a very stretchy knit.
Cast on 33 stitches (click here for instructions on how to cast on).
here, and how to purl here. You'll have to remember to bring your working yarn (the yarn you wrap around the needle) from the front of your work to the back of your work when alternating between knitting and purling.
First row: (k1, p1) repeat until one stitch remains on your needle, k1. Turn work over.
Repeat the first row until your scarf measures 62 inches in length or approximately 232 rows (width is 10.5 inches).
Cast off (click here for instructions on how to cast off). Use scissors to break yarn, leaving a long tail of approximately 22 inches for stitching together the two ends of your scarf.
To complete your infinity scarf, lay it on a flat surface and bring the two ends together (while still lying flat) so that they meet. Stitch the two ends together using the tail from your cast off edge. Next darn in any ends using a darning needle. DO NOT trim your ends with scissors without darning them in first as all your hard work will unravel. If this sounds complicated, don't worry, I'll have a post on how to do this later on.
