Chunky Infinity Scarf

20170502_185644

Infinity scarves may just be the best thing that ever happened to Fall and Winter fashion. They are stupid simple to wear, they keep you toasty warm and they can be warn by anyone, regardless of age.  This pattern is for a chunky, ribbed infinity scarf with a mobius twist. I know it sounds like alot, but it will probably be one of the easiest things you have ever had to knit. In fact, you might just end up knitting a bunch for holiday presents!

Materials:

Size 13 needles

Super chunky yarn – 6 weight (I used Loops & Threads Country Loom in Driftwood)

Sewing Needle

Pattern:

CO 18 sts

All Rows: K1, P1

Repeat until you reach your desired length (I used all 104 yards of my yarn)

Finishing:

Bind off you project and create a mobius twist by holding your project flat and rotating one end so there is a single twist in your scarf. It may seem unnecessary now, but the twist helps it look better when looped over your head.

Sew your project’s ends together, keeping this twist in your scarf. Weave in your ends and cut the excess yarn.

Ta-da! Now wrap that bad boy around your neck twice and you are ready to go. Easy peasy.

A great, simple beanie can be the best staple of any outfit.  This beanie is light weight, best for spring or fall and will fit the average adult head.

Size 8 circular and/or double point needle

Worsted weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft Charcoal Heather)

Stitch marker

Sewing Needle

Pattern:

Body of the hat:

CO 88 & join in the round

Row 1-6 rows:*K2, P2

Row 7 onward: Knit in the round until project reaches 7 inches tall

Crown of the hat:

Row x: *K2tog

Row x2: *K

Repeat until you have 11 stitches left (You will have to switch to dpn if you have not been using them all along.)

Take your yarn and sew it through the 11 live stitches to make a circle. Take your yarn through the center hole so your hat is inside out and weave in ends.

The end!

Simple Knitted Coasters

2015-07-14 20.05.32Here is a quick and easy way to use up some scrap yarn to make something you might ACTUALLY use.  (Because let’s face it, most other ideas for scrap yarn are pretty sad…)

Start off with some worsted weight (4) yarn.  I used Caron Simply Soft in Pagoda and Sunshine.

Next, pick up a pair of size 5 needles, or something close, honestly it doesn’t matter too much.

1. Cast on 25 stitches.

2. Knit the first 3 rows.

4. Purl a row and knit a row  (making sure to knit the first and last 3 sts) until you have a square (about 28 rows with my needle size).

4. Knit the last 3 rows.

5. Bind off and sew in.

BOOOOOOOOOM! That is it. Dead serious. Dead simple. Now go make a cup on tea and put your creation to work! Cheerio!
