FO Friday: Infinity for a Friend #2

It's been very busy at school the past few weeks. I've started a few new knitting projects (including my own designed aran sweater - it's very exciting! Expect pictures Wednesday!) and am still chugging away on my Amiga. However, I wanted to share another FO that I completed just in time.

I don't know if you all remember this post from a few weeks ago, but I was able to finish a purple version of my Blues Infinity Scarf for my friend Candace for her birthday. She has graciously allowed me to use a photo of her wearing it (and looking her fall-best)!




Happy birthday, Candace!


Interested in knitting this scarf for a friend of yours, too? Blues Infinity Scarf is a free pattern of mine that only takes one skein of yarn to create! If you've already made one, I'd love to see pictures, please send them to me!

Have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Got a question... When you sew the ends of the scarf, do you give them a twist (like making a moebius strip) or do you just join them without twisting? Either way is fine with me, I just want to know if you HAVE TO twist them or not.

  5. I joined mine without twisting (I find in the course of wearing it, it gets twisted enough), but it's totally up to you which way you want to do it. (No 'have tos' here!) Let me know if you have any more questions! :)

  6. What about the length? How long does it have to be for this type of scarf to wear well? The one I did measured like 53 inches, that when sewn at the ends, was not too long or too short. Still, I thought it could be a tad longer. What do you think or recommend?

  7. For this scarf I recommend 54 inches. The one you see here is a bit shorter than that because I wanted to get it done before her birthday. Anywhere between 54 and 60/65 inches should be fine.
