Choose your yarn and needles
Choose a medium to bulky weight yarn and appropriate needles. You will need about 100 yards (91.4 m) of yarn. If you are a beginner, choose a thicker yarn and needles so that your stitches will be easier to see and fix if you make a mistake.
Start by casting on 40 stitches using the long-tail method. You can also use the knit-on method, but the long-tail is faster and results in a neater edge.
Cast on your stitches
To start knitting your infinity scarf, you will need to cast on your stitches. You can use any type of stitch you like, but we recommend using a basic knit stitch.
To do this, start by making a slip knot on your needle. Then, insert the needle through the loop of the yarn and pull it through until you have a new loop on the needle. Continue doing this until you have the desired number of stitches on your needle.
Join your work in a circle
When you’re ready to join your work in a circle, start by threading the end of your yarn through the needle. Then, holding the two needles together so that the right sides of your work are facing each other, insert the needle into the first stitch on the left-hand needle and pull it through to the right. Next, insert the needle into the second stitch on the left-hand needle and pull it through to the right. Now you should have two stitches on your right-hand needle.
Knit your infinity scarf
In this scarf-knitting tutorial, we’ll show you how to knit an infinity scarf in just five easy steps. You’ll need about 200 yards of worsted-weight yarn and size 10 needles. Once you’ve gathered your materials, just follow these simple instructions and you’ll have a cozy infinity scarf in no time.
Step 1: Cast on 50 stitches using the long-tail method.
Step 2: Join your work in the round, being careful not to twist your stitches. Knit one round.
Step 3: Now it’s time to start the stockinette stitch. To do this, simply alternate between knitting and purling each stitch as you work your way around the scarf. Continue until your scarf measures 60 inches long.
Step 4: To finish off your infinity scarf, bind off all of your stitches using the basic bind-off method.
Step 5: Weave in all of your loose ends and enjoy your new infinity scarf!
Bind off your stitches
After you have finished knitting your infinity scarf, it is time to bind off your stitches. This will ensure that your scarf holds its shape and does not unravel. To bind off your stitches, follow these simple steps:
1. Cut a tail of yarn that is about twice as long as the width of your scarf.
2. Thread the tail of yarn through a tapestry needle.
3. Insert the needle through the first two stitches on your needle, from front to back.
4. Pull the yarn all the way through so that you now have one stitch on your needle and one loop of yarn on your tail of yarn.
5. Insert the needle into the front of the same stitch again.
6. Now insert the needle into the first stitch on your needle (skipping the stitch you just worked), from back to front.
7. Pull the yarn all the way through so that you now have two loops of yarn on your tail of yarn.
8. Repeat steps 5-7 until you have only one stitch left on your needle.
Weave in your ends
The final step in finishing your infinity scarf is to weave in your ends. You will need a tapestry needle and some scrap yarn in a matching color.
To weave in your ends, start by threading the tapestry needle with a length of yarn. Insert the needle through the side of the fabric, come up through the center of a stitch, and then back down through the side of the fabric. Pull the yarn through, leaving a small tail. Repeat this process until you have woven in all of your loose ends.
Once all of your ends are woven in, trim off any excess yarn and enjoy your new infinity scarf!
Block your infinity scarf
Once your scarf is the desired length, it’s time to block it. Blocking is a process of wetting or steaming your finished piece and then shaping it to the desired size and shape. For an infinity scarf, you’ll want to block it into a large circle.
To wet block your infinity scarf, soak it in lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes. Gently squeeze out any excess water and then lay the scarf flat on a towel. Use your hands to smooth it into shape, making sure the edges are all even.
Once the piece is shaped how you want it, pin it in place and let it dry thoroughly before unpinning and wearing.
Add fringe (optional)
To add fringe to your infinity scarf, cut 48 pieces of yarn, each 12 inches long. Fold the yarn in half, and then use a crochet hook or needle to pull the folded end through the end of the scarf. Pull the loose ends of the yarn through the loop, and then tighten to secure. Repeat this process at regular intervals along the length of the scarf.
Wear your infinity scarf with pride!
If you’re looking for a quick and easy knitting project that will keep you warm all winter, look no further than the infinity scarf. This stylish piece can be knit in a variety of different yarns and stitch patterns, making it a great project for both experienced and beginner knitters.
