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.

 

Three Easy Peasy Scarf Patterns with Hooters Hall Super Bulky yarn

Scarves are really easy to knit and with Hooters Hall super chunky yarn and a pair of size 50 needles you can have a beautiful, long winter scarf all finished in an hour, two hours at the very most.

What do I need ?

  1. 500g of any of our 3-4 wpi yarns will be enough to give you a nice long scarf for any of these three patterns. Some of our heavier ( 6g /1m)  yarns will give a slightly shorter scarf than the approximate measurements given below.
  2. A pair of size 50 (25mm) knitting needles

Beginners Moss Stitch Scarf

A really easy pattern for beginners. If you can knit and purl you can make this scarf.

500g will give you a scarf  approximately 2m x 25cm (79 inches x 10 inches)

Cast on 9 stitches

Row One : Knit 1, Purl 1

Row Two:  Knit 1, Purl 1

Continue to repeat rows 1 and 2 until the scarf is as long as you want and there is enough yarn left to cast off.

Cast off and weave in loose ends.

 

Simple Lace Scarf

One of the ways to get more drape with super bulky yarns is to use lace stitches. This pattern uses a really simple garter stitch lace pattern.

Cast on 8 stitches

Row 1: Knit all stitches

Repeat from row 5 until the scarf is as long as you want and there is enough yarn to cast off

Bramble Stitch Scarf

I love the big puffs of yarn you get with this pattern I think they look like roses. It makes for a super snuggly scarf.

500g of yarn will give you a scarf approximately 180cm x 21 cm (71 inches x 8 inches)

Cast on 10 stitches

Row 1: Knit first stitch * (Knit1, Purl1,Knit 1) into the next stitch, purl 3 together. Repeat from * across the row, knit the last stitch

If you want to knit a bobble hat to go with your scarf here’s a free pattern: http://www.hootershall.co.uk/2014/03/26/bobble-hat-knitting-pattern/

 

Bobble hat knitting pattern

A simple pattern for a super bulky bobble hat using Hooters hall 3-4 wpi yarn.

Use any of our 3-4 wpi yarns you will need approximately 75 m of yarn including the bobble. I am planning on spinning some self striping yarn specifically for this bobble hat pattern so keep a look out for it in the farm shop.

Use 10mm (US size 15) circular knitting needles

Cast on 28 stitches in colour A (I’ve used grey in the pictured bobble hat)

Mark the beginning of each round with a stitch marker or a loop of contrasting piece of yarn.

Knit in the round

Round 1 *Knit 2, Purl 2 repeat from * to end of round

Continue to work in a Knit 2 purl 2 rib until hat measures 10cm and if you want to have a contrasting colour change to your contrast colour B ( In the pictured bobble hat I’ve used purple) and continue in a knit 2, purl 2 rib until your hat measures 25 cm from the cast on edge. (If using Hooters Hall super bulky yarns you can needle felt the two ends of yarn together when joining a contrasting colour.)

If you don’t want a contrasting colour simply continue to work in a knit 2, purl 2 rib with colour A until your hat measures 25cm in total from the cast on edge.

Shaping the crown

Round 1 Knit together the 2 stitches of each knit rib you will end up with 21 stitches

Round 2 Work all stitches as they appear Knit 1, Purl 2

Round 3 Work all stiches as they appear Knit 1, Purl 2

Round 4 Purl together the 2 stitches of each purl rib you will end up with 14 stiches

Round 5 Work all stitches as they appear Knit 1, Purl 1

Round 6 * Knit 2 stitches together and repeat from * to end of round you will end up with 7 stitches on the round

Round 7  Knit all stitches. Cut yarn with a long tail and pass the yarn end through the remaining 7 stitches, pull tight and fasten off. I prefer to pull the tail of yarn through into the inside of the hat and secure it.

To finish Make a pom pom and sew onto the hat. I use a chunky yarn to sew the pom pom on and a tapestry needle.

The 2 2 rib is quite stretchy so the hat will fit most adults.
