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!
Size 13 needles
Super chunky yarn – 6 weight (I used Loops & Threads Country Loom in Driftwood)
CO 18 sts
All Rows: K1, P1
Repeat until you reach your desired length (I used all 104 yards of my yarn)
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)
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 6.5 inches tall
Crown of the hat: (You will have to switch to dpn if you have not been using them all along.)
Row x: *K2tog, K9
Row x2: *K2tog, K8
Row x3: *K2tog, K7
Row x4: *K2tog, K6
Row x5: *K2tog, K5
Row x6: *K2tog, K4
Row x5: *K2tog, K3
Row x6: *K2tog, K2
Row x7: *K2tog, K
Row x8: *K2tog
Take your yarn and sew it through the live stitches to make a circle. Take your yarn through the center hole so your hat is inside out and weave in ends.
Good afternoon everyone! Sorry for the delay between my posts, I have been busy getting a new job! Whoo hoo! But we’re not here to talk about how well I’m adulting, we’re here here to discuss my new wrist warmer pattern.
So…every year my boyfriend and I go to the Southern Californian Renaissance Faire, you know, like a bunch of nerds. We go all out…like I have a corset and he has armor type of all out. Well anywho, it was rainy and cold for opening weekend and my outfit is built for SoCal temperatures. No good! So I needed a quick solution to make my costume more weather ready. So I thought and thought and then boom, wrist warmers that come up to the elbow. The pattern I came up with is simple and easy, I fact, I finished both in 2 days with the many interruptions of life. The pattern is designed for a smaller person, such as myself, but could be adjusted to be larger by simply adding on multiples of 4 for the CO and increasing the button hole size. So without further delay, here it is.
On size 6 needles, knitted in the round, with worsted weight yarn.
CO 36 sts & join in the round
R1-R5: K2, P2
R6-71 (or until you have your desired arm length): K
R72: Create an 8 stitch, one row button hole for your thumb and then K the rest of the round
R75-80: K2, P2
Bind off and weave in ends
So there you have it! Told you it was easy! I hope they keep you as warm as they kept me! Until next time…
Here 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!
