April 2013 - Vintage Circle Scarf

 

It seems like infinity scarves, or circle scarves, are everywhere lately. This is a simple pattern that can be transferred to a variety of yarns of different fibre contents and weights. In the sample pictured, one skein of Berroco Vintage was used with 5mm needles until the yarn ran out. With a simple stitch pattern like Mistake Rib, we can make this scarf thinner or wider by adding or subtracting mutiples of two stitches, always maintaing an uneven number of stitches.

 

 

 

 

 

Materials:

1 or 2 skeins of Vintage or any worsted weight yarn
4.5mm or 5mm needles, straight or circular

Directions:

Cast on 27 stitches.
K1, P2, *K2, P2* repeat from * to * across row. This is called Mistake Rib.
Repeat this row until the scarf is your desired length.
Cast off all stitches.

To join ends:
Cut a length of yarn about 3 or 4 times as long as the width of the scarf; thread onto tapestry needle. Being careful not to twist unless on purpose, sew ends together one stitch at a time.
When you reach the end and have a complete circle, weave in ends.
