Hooters Hall Handspun Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

If you fancy a super speedy knit using our Hooters Hall handspun yarn this infinity scarf is the pattern for you.

What you need.

100g bulky weight Hooters Hall handspun yarn. The pictures show a scarf knitted using our Fenland Mist bulky weight yarn.

10mm (US size 15) knitting needles

Pins and a towel or blocking mats

Tapestry or weaving needle

How to make it.

Leave a tail of about 18cm of yarn and cast on 5 stitches.

Knit every row. Don’t knit too tightly or you will struggle to move the yarn along the needle.

Cast off when you get to the end of the ball of yarn. Remember to leave enough yarn for your casting off. If you misjudge it just undo a couple of rows and try again.

Block your scarf. Fill a sink or bowl with warm water. Put your scarf in the water for a few seconds holding it under the water. Remove and roll up your scarf in a dry towel. Give it a quick squeeze.

Lay your scarf on another towel or blocking mats. Pin at one end and work your way along the scarf gently stretching it out and pinning as you go.

Once you’ve finished it should be at least 1m in length. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bit longer. Leave to dry for a few days.

Sewing Up

Fold your scarf in half so it in a V shape like this

Fold the ends inwards so they line up with each other like this

Your scarf should look like this

With a tapestry or weaving needle sew the two ends together using mattress stitch. You can use the long tail of yarn from your cast on edge. Alternatively you could use a different yarn but you will need to tie it to a stitch on  the edge of your scarf first.

That’s it. Your scarf should look like this. You can wear it as a single loop or twist and loop it around your neck twice.

 

 

Happy Knitting

Super chunky infinity scarf knitting pattern

Infinity scarves are perfect for wearing when you’re busy doing smallholding tasks. No flapping ends or trying to secure your scarf around your neck in force 10 gale. This scarf has a moebius twist so lies nice and flat on your chest and easily twists up and around your neck; you can even pull it up onto your head like a hood.
You can use any Hooters Hall 3-4 wpi super bulky yarn it looks great with our self striping yarn as well as the Shetland Silk or any of the natural undyed British wool yarns. If you have a low tolerance to ticklishness from wool then the self striping yarns or the oatmeal Blue Faced Leicester will probably work best for you.

What you need ?

  • 500g Hooters Hall 3-4 wpi yarn available in our Etsy farm shop click on the Hooters Hall Farm Shop tab above
  • 15mm size 19 circular needles with at least a 1m cable
  • large darning needle

This infinity scarf is knitted from the bottom up which is why you need the long circular needle although you won’t be knitting in the round.

The Pattern

Leaving a tail of yarn approximately 65 cm cast on 69 stitches (this tail of yarn will be used to sew together the ends of your scarf)

Row 1: Knit all stitches

Row 2: Knit 1, * yarn over, Knit 2 together, repeat from * to end of row

Row 3: Knit all sitiches

Row 4: Knit 2, * yarn over, Knit 2 together, repeat from * until there is one stitch left and then knit this stitch

Repeat rows 1 to 4 three more times making a total of 16 rows

Cast off using the stretchy Knit 2 together method.

Knit 2 stitches together giving you one stitch on the right needle

Slip that stitch back onto the left needle then knit it together with the next stitch.

Repeat until you have only one stitch remaining on your needle.

Pull your yarn through the final stitch as usual to complete the bind off.

Blocking

Your scarf will need blocking before you sew it up with a moebius twist. Blocking will help open up the  lace holes and improve the drape of the scarf. I tend to prefer a full wet blocking for super chunky yarn.

Dunk your scarf into some hot water (no soap and don’t agitate it). Roll it up in a large towel to squeeze water out don’t wring it.

Place some thick towels on a flat surface and pin your scarf out so that the holes are opened out. leave to dry naturally, it will take a few days.

Sewing up

Fold your scarf in half short sides together

On a flat surface arrange your scarf in a v shape as shown in the picture

 

Then fold the ends in and sew together with your darning needle using mattress stitch and the long tail of yarn left when you cast on.

You may also have some yarn left after casting off and could use this to sew up the ends if you prefer.
