I have been wanting to make an infinity scarf for a while now and just during the holidays, I got a circular needle set so I had to try it out.  I am quite happy with the outcome. 

Step 1: What you Need

  • YARN!  I chose to use 7 different colors (I have a weird obsession with rainbows and colors), but I think this design would look really cute in all one color, or having all but one ring in one color and then the last ring in a contrasting color (like all white and one black).
  • Circular Needles Size 10.5 (you can use a different size, but my stitch and row count are based on this size)
  • Row Markers
  • Yarn Needle

Note: To get the best outcome, or at least more symmetrical, use all the same brand yarn.  My red and yellow were different, but they weren't that different, so it was okay.  
<p>Do you know how many yards of yarn you used?</p>
<p>I'm actually not sure, but as you can see in this <a target="_blank" href="http://www.instructables.com/file/FJPJC03HAQ37LXT">image </a>I was using a new skein of yarn and didn't use too much of it.</p>
<p>I want one ! </p><p>Please come to Paris - France with what you have so I can buy one, pleeeaaase ! No, no expenses paid : I'm on a budget. No I don't know how to knit and I don't want to learn to. Just come &hellip; LOL</p><p>It's just another way to say I like your work.</p><p>Thanks for posting.</p>
Great instructable and awesome scarf! I've never used circular needles before, but I really want to try this, How did you get them to fold onto themselves? Is it the number of rows or the type of knitting that did this?
It is a combination of both I would say. It is mostly because I only knit going around. If, when I reached my starting point, I had switched to purling it would have been flatter, but since it was all knit in all the same direction it wanted to fold on itself. I actually didn't know that was going to happen until I started doing it and then decided I liked that look and kept doing it that way :)
I'm not a knitter, but I love this project - very cute and vibrant! I wish there was a way to convert it to crochet, but (unfortunately) crochet edges don't curl like that. :(
What if you crocheted a circle tube? Like amigurumi? I'm sure we could think of something :)
Yeah, maybe. I could use a smaller, softer yarn too. Hmmm...something to think about - thanks!
Love it!!
Thank you!
i love it i may have to attempt to make one, :)
I'd love to see it if you do! It's pretty easy and so warm :)
Such a great idea! My 10 year old daughter has a little i-cord knitter and is always looking for new things to do with the finished i-cord. I think we have a new project. Thanks!
Yes! This would be perfect for that :D
Hmm.. I've been seeing that weird tube yarn, which has lately gone on sale, and been clueless about what to do with it. I think that could make a really cute, quick and easy version of this.
I think I've seen what you are talking about and I agree! That would look really cute, too!
Wow! This is absolutely amazing!
Thank you :)
So pretty! I almost thought it was a bracelet. :)
After I made it and was looking at it, I thought it would make a cute bracelet too! Just need double pointed needles or smaller circular needles.
I love the scarf! You might talk me into taking up knitting after all! Have a beautiful day!<br>Sunshiine
I really think it's worth learning! I used to only make scarves for the longest time, and I've finally started branching off (though, this is a scarf too, it's different than I used to do).
Really nice scarf
Thank you!
Great design! I'll have to give that a whirl (groan).<br><br>And you do look good in pictures, BTW!
Thanks! It's really easy and you can alter it any way to make it perfect for you :)
Ahhhh! That's so pretty. Love the texture. :D
Thanks! I like the way it came out too, kind of like chains.
I LOVE it!
Thanks ma!
Aww super cute! great job. I would totally make this and wear it if I was any good at this kind of project lol
Thanks! If you can knit, it really isn't that hard! You just need to know who to knit in a round.
