This is my take on an infinity scarf.  It might be a little confusing, but once you get it going, it's pretty easy.

Originally posted on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Infinity-Times-7-Scarf/



Supplies:
  • Size 10.5 Circular Needles
  • Yarn, colors of choice
  • Row Markers and Yarn Needle

*Pretend the light blue ring is upside down.

The stitch count, for me, produced a small scarf that just fit and only needed to stretch a little to get over my head.  So if you want it longer, either knit looser than me (which is easy to do since I knit so tight) or cast on some more stitches.

I had a tail of a little more than two arm spans for casting on, but you'll figure out what you need after doing the first ring.

C/O 110 sts. on circular needles
Knit 10 rows in a circle
Cast off.

Your done with one!


Once you have the first ring done, you are going to have to weave in the others.  Before you weave, cast on your 110 stitches.

With your first ring laying upside down (the side where the two long edges meet) weave in your needle with your yarn on it; the side without the tail and ball hanging from it.  It is only weaved through twice and is really easy to do (Pictures 3-6).  Just make sure your stitches aren't twisted when you start your knitting.  (You don't have to have the rings upside down to start, but if you want them all the same way you do.  I didn't with one, so just that dark bluish gray one is the wrong way.  Live and learn.)

Now do this with each of your rings until you have your desired thickness. 

When I went to weave my needle in, I chose a ring already done and followed it with my needle.  Though I wasn't really picky about it.  I never, necessarily, followed the same ring each time, it was just a nice guide to get them generally woven the same.

I first throught it was an i-cord bracelet - which is a cool idea too - but I also do love it as a scarf - I love the colours you chose!

Thanks!  I didn't even think of using an i-cord when I was making it, but I think it would look even better as that!

Since I don't know how to do i-cord, I appreciated your fun and easy tutorial a lot!  I hope I can finish before Monday night so I can give it as a gift! Cheesy

I just learned how to make i-cords, not my favourite thing to do (I have no idea why it took me YEARS to figure them out Roll Eyes )  I think I would rather knit the loops in the round, with them already joined.  I love knitting on circular needles though...

I love the different colors, that is so clever! it would be great as a stash buster idea for all the yarn I bought when I first started knitting and thought I could make anything with just 1 ball of yarn. Smiley
