FO Friday: Cozy Scarf (also a free pattern!)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was able to knit myself (and others) a few things while in Spain. One of my most favorite scarves while I was there was a dreamy silk/wool-blend cozy infinity. I didn't cheap out on the yarn this time as I really wanted to make this to not only stay warm during their unusually cool winter, but to remember my time in Granada.



This is a VERY simply scarf using only twisted rib and kitchener's stitch.



In case any of you out there wanted to make something like this, here are some simple instructions to get you started:

The scarf is twisted rib.

Materials:
Size 10 (6mm) straight needles
Any bulky weight yarn of your choice. 300-400yds
(I recommend a soft, single-ply yarn. I chose a super-soft silk blend)

Cast on 35 stitches (or provisionally cast on 35 stitches - tutorial here)
Row 1: K1tbl, P1tbl
Row 2: P1tbl, K1tbl

(Don't know how to knit or purl through the back loop? Check out this video)

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until scarf measures 54 inches long.

Graft two ends together.

(If you provisionally cast on, use the 3-needle bind-off)



Happy Friday!

  1. Thank you for your comments on my blog! Your infinity scarf looks wonderful. Wool and silk are my favorite fibers to knit with. I think you and I both have a little obsession with infinity scarves/cowls! I'm thinking of making a nice cowl with my pokeberry dyed yarn. :)

  2. Your scarf looks wonderful. Your dyed wool yarn is good. I like that kind of infinity scarf. This kind of infinity scarf is what I’m looking for. Thanks for sharing!
