Nice! Like it a lot. -Kerlina
I love this scarf - it turned out so well that my sisters and mother are begging me to make them one. Thanks so much!
made this in one day and it was amazing! THANKS SO MUCH!!!
Hi there I'm from Australia and have to convert the needle and wool ply .. Can anyone help me with this ? I'm guessing this would be a 12 ply wool .. Not sure of the needle size .. Thanks molly .. Molly247@bigpond.net.au
Could someone tell me if this pattern should have an odd number cast on?I find that if I do an even number, it doesn't work right. Your K2,P1 pattern is off then.Thanks!
90 it is! K2P1=3stitches repeat 30 times, 90 stitches!
Odd or even is not important. It has to be in multiples of 3. 90, 93, 96, etc.
To change the pattern, chose a CO number that's divisible by three.... That should work!
what if i want to knit this with straight needles vertically and sew the ends together. any idea of what the pattern would look like then? something like knit row, knit row, purl row, etc? so cute, btw! i just don't have the skill for a loopy needle :)
The pattern is almost the same.Cast on an odd number of stitchesRow one: [K2, P1] acrossRow two: [K1, P2] acrossRow three: purl across.The second row changes because you're going in the reverse direction instead of around.
I think I will try the straight needle method too, since I have had to mishaps with getting the yarn twisted on the circular needle. Has anyone tried it yet?
Do you have scarfs for crocheting?
Hi! if I have a US19 29 inches instead of 24 inches... I guess I should increase the number of stitiches until get the extra 5?Thank you!
Noooooooooooo. It just means you will have 5 extra inches of dead space on your wire! Follow the pattern. It's gorgeous and really does do up in one weekend or less.
I have the same question, cause the knitting lady at the store told me both ends have to meet at the end and 29" would leave too much space at one end so that I couldn't join properly. Of course, since I am a beginner, I don't know how to figure this out! THANKS!
Are you using the Magic Loop technique?
The "space at one end" you speak of is actually in the center of your work while you are knitting. It is not hard to join the first stitchto the last stitch (making sure that you place a marker between the two so you know where to start the next round). I made thisscarf using 29 inch circular needles and had no trouble at all joining the stitches together.
So I just tried this pattern on a straight needle, and it turned out great! Here is the slightly altered pattern:R1: (K2, P1)R2: (K1, P2)R3: (Purl)*Repeat 1-3 six more timesFinish:R1: (K2, P1)Bind Off: (K1, P2)Seam the edges together. I used a mattress stitch.The finished project looks just like the original!
What size needle did you use and did you cast on 90 st?
I used the same size proscribed in the original pattern (19), and I did cast on the 90 stitches.
Hi Unknown,so the total number of rows is 9 for the whole project?
How many stitches did u cast on when using the straight needles?
How did you fit 90 stitches on the straight needles? I'm using the same yarn but can't fit 90 on mine.
Sorry not 9 rows....21 rows is the whole project?
I am almost complete. Love the pattern, however, after being away from knitting for several years I am having problem with the last row which states bind off using K2 P1 pattern. How many rows do I need to do to finish this, I can`t seem to get the end result here. PLEASE HELP
I'd say it's as many rows as you want the scarf to be wide; an end user preference on that.
If I used less bulky wool and smaller needles would that still work?
Could you do this pattern starting with casting on the width on a straight needle? I am a beginner and I don't know how to knit in the round.
I am starting this pattern and do not understand how it gets to the measurements listed in the directions. I am using size 19 circular needles 24" and if I knitting in the round how does the scarfs diameter get to be longer? It appears that I will just end up with a tube the diameter of my circular needles. Please let me know if I am missing something, I am new to circular knitting. Thanks!
I have the same issue. It is still very pretty, but I want that length! :) Easy pattern to follow, though. Any tips would be appreciated!
It's always a surprise to me to see how long my infinity scarves actually are when knitting on circular needles. It'll stretch out to be longer, the stitches just get kind of cramped onto the circular needles! Don't worry!
I have never knitted with a circular needle until this project. Should it be loose? I have tried three times and it seems too loose. Also I just started knitting about 2 months ago.
I have made this scarf 2 times using size 13 circulsr needles ans cast on 120 stiches. Its awesome
I used size 17 circulars and added a twist. The scarf turned out slightly smaller but awesome. The biggest tip I have is to use a stitch marker every 9 stitches (you will have 10 sections) as not to lose track. I used a different stitch counter for the end of the row.This was my first knitting project and it was doable and it looks great. Thank you!
Correction, end of the round :)
Cant wait to try this but confused over last part. Can you explain on detail the last part. Knit 2 purl 1 bo in k2 Im totally lost and I am a knitter!thanks
"bo" is "bind off". You knit 2, pass the first knit stich over the 2nd, then purl 1, pass the second knit stitch over, knit 1, pass the the purled stitch over until you finish off all the stitches
I knitted tons of these for all the women in my family for xmas and they LOVED them :) I made some longer, some thicker and even one inside of another (like a figure 8). It's really cute with an "accidental" twist in it. Thank you very much for the pattern!
I'm going to make this for my sisters all six of them
Can someone tell me how it is suppose to end? I don't understand the BO in K2; P1 pattern. Please someone explain. I haven't started the scarf yet, but I do want to know ahead of time.
You knit one, then knit another (K2). Pull the first knitted stitch over the second and off the needle completely. Then purl the next stitch (P1). Pull the knitted stitch over the purled one. Then knit the next stitch and pull the purled stitch over the knitted one. Then knit another stitch and pull the first stitch over and off the needle. Continue this process until you no longer have any stitches on the needle. You should have no more than two stitches on your right needle at all times during the binding off process. Hope this helped!
The biggest needle I have is a 15. I'm guessing I just cast on ?? extra stitches to make it the same width?
Just wondering, but I'd like to try the pattern with US 10 (6.0 mm) circular needles. Any idea how many stitches I should cast on?
Why does this pattern call for two skeins of yarn? It does not say to cast on doubling the yarn. I did this and restarted it 3 times bc I thought I was doing something wrong. It only took me not even one full skein to make- as a single yarn cast on. I think the pattern needs correction?
I now know my own answer... (above!) I was not given the right yarn to use. She gave me regular homespun and not the hometown yarn. Just picked up the hometown last night and had the scarf done by bedtime. It was really driving me crazy when I just knew something wasn't right! Nice easy pattern-thanks and looks just like the picture now! thanks!
Olá ! Parabéns, adorei o blog , vou passar a seguir , bjs..
How can I tell what size my circular needles are? I just found them in a bag
If you have straight knitting needles, you can lay your circular needles beside them and see which ones match in size and then get the number from your straight needle.
I just finished mine! I love how it turned out, but miner's not nearly as long as it appears here. And I have a ton of yarn left. I used a 15 needle (biggest ones I had). Next time may try slightly longer cord to see if I can get the desired length. But wonderful pattern, easy to do. Thank you for sharing!
I can't wait to try this! Nice and simple....perfect! I hope it's okay that I featured this on my blog today at http://whittskitsfabricscrafts.blogspot.com/2013/03/find-it-free-on-friday-5-knitting.htmlThanks for the great pattern - Carrie
So, i just finished this scarf, size 19 circular needles, it was turning out great until i was done, and it's way shorter than the picture? I followed the pattern exactly..
make sure you check the gauge: Gauge6 STS and 12 rows = 4 inches in establish pattern [see rows 1 - 3]
I am on row 5 and realize that the scarf is turned on the needles. It is looks like it would if you twisted and doubled it on your neck- like an 8. I will pull and start over but wondered if anyone knows what I did wrong. I don't want to repeat my mistake.
silly question but if you cast on more stitches will that make it longer or wider? or both? thank you
If you cast on more stitches, it will make the scarf longer. To make it wider, just add more rows. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
thank you so much for the reply i am really enjoying this!! :D
I'm sort of new to knitting but I've made a cowl and hats in the round before. What I don't understand is how does knitting in the round make an infinity scarf? Wouldn't it end up being a cowl/ tube?
Thanks for stopping by Sharilyn! So in this case, you're casting on a lot of stitches to make the scarf really long in circumference. It is essentially a cowl/tube, but just a really wide one. Does that make sense?
Ok so I noticed that every third row is purl. But when I do it, it makes my project look badly made. Is it necessary to do that purl row?
Nevermind. I answered my own question
omg i loveeeee this pattern!! i've made 10 of these, they're great christmas presents, even though they don't come out like the picture :) I made one in just one day thank you so much!! :-D
Thank you for posting these patterns. I'm knitting scarves for a local homeless shelter and was getting anxious; time is moving fast and my fingers are getting slow. These patterns will help me so much. Thank you, Thank you!!
can someone help me? I finished my first row with a purl and started my second row with a knit but the pattern does not look right. Am I doing it right?
Depends on how many stitches and whether you are doing straight or circular needles
I finally got my needles and made this, but I think I got the wrong yarn. I used Lion Thick and Quick, which I thought was also the super bulky weight, but it looks a lot more bulkier than the photo. I also only did the 3 rows 5 more times, as it was getting too wide and almost to the end of my second skein. Nice pattern!
I tried this again with the Hometown yarn and it turned out looking more like yours, except I didn't have enough to do 6 repeats of the pattern, only 5. I also inadvertently ended up with a twist in it, but decide to leave it in, because if you wear it looped, when you loop it, it untwists.
I am a newer knitter. I tried multiple different times knitting in the round for this pattern. The problem I am having is when I get to the repeat step, the thread gets caught under the previous rows and snugs them up. I gave up and tried to do this pattern on strait needles. I am still having the same problem. Someone please help!!! This is a Christmas gift =(
Thank you so much for this great pattern! Made it up this weekend for my daughter and it was exactly what she wanted.
If you use straight needles will the pattern be horizontal like the picture or vertical using the pattern above?
Can someone explain to me the join in the round after casting on. I haven't knitted in awhile and can't remember what to do. Thanks!
Just continue knitting the first stitch which will "join" the round (just make sure there are no twists in the row)
Thank you for the pattern. I made one for my mother for Christmas. She loves it so much that she asked me to make one in black for her birthday. Using the same pattern, I made a matching hat.
Hi there! I am a beginner knitter and would like to make this. However, I never tried circular needles before. I do have the straight needles though and would like to use that instead. I would like to know how many stitches do I need to cast on if I use straight needles? Many thanks!!!
Hi Speaking from the Heart. Any chance of you sharing the matching hat pattern. I would REALLY appreciate it. Thanks Maizee.
Thanks for sharing this tutorial as well as for showing us your beautiful scarf. Really love this infinity scarf as I want to make one for me. Infinity scarf is one of the best accessories and gifts you can have and shared to others.
Could u go into more detail about the binding off process?
That's the part I don't understand but no-one seems to be answering. I don't understand the instructions. lol
Look back to the previous posts in the thread, I had the same question and it was explained there. ��
Do you use two threads at one time or just one?
I'm glad I'm not the only one who is wondering. Would someone who has made the scarf and it turned out answer the question for us thank you
I've tried this 3 times and the pattern doesn't turn out right. I'm following the instructions exactly, and even recount my number of stitches each time to make sure it's right. I don't understand the purpose of the all purl row--it seems to throw everything off. I'm an intermediate knitter and don't understand why this pattern, which seems simple enough, is defeating me!
All the pearling makes the design. I just finished one and it came out really really nice
Thanks Bruce, maybe I'll give it one more go!
I love the length. I will be making this pattern this weekend. Will I need to use 2 strands of wool at the same time, I am using Red Heart Super Saver Worsted 4. the weight says 5 oz. My color is Zebra. My needles are 15 mm I will be using 2 needles, I need to know what the length will be. I would like to have the same length as what is in the pattern when knitted on a circular needle even though I will be using straight needles
I get everything but the binding off row. Can someone break that down for me please? I am used to the simple way of just taking a knit stitch and placing it over the other stitch one at a time until you are at the last stitch. Also, I've never worked with circular needles. My daughter wants me to make her an infinity scarf so I want to try this because it looks easy until the end.
You bind off the way you're describing but instead of just doing knit stitches, you're going to continue the pattern as written and bind off in k2, p1
Thank you Ashley. I am a bit confused but I'm sure will get the hang of it once I get there. I'll check back here. Thanks again.
Haven't tried this myself yet, but I'm thinking that you can cast-off any way you want, just the same as you can use a cast t-on that you like. In the end I don't think it will matter much. I am going to try it.
Thanks a lot for the pattern . The scarf is beautiful. I am a beginner and want to try to make one but with straight needles. Is that possible? And if so, do I have to change anything in the stitch sequence knit knit purl? Waiting eagerly for your answer and thanks again.
