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

Supplies:
  • 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.  

Step 2: Getting Started

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.
  1. C/O 110 sts. on circular needles  (150 seems to be good for a roomier scarf)
  2. Knit 10 rows in a circle
  3. Cast off.
  4. Done; wasn't that easy?  I chose to knit all rows so that the ring would fold in on itself like you can see in the pictures.  I liked the effect for the overall scarf design.

Now just do this 6 more times :)

I want one !

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 … LOL

It's just another way to say I like your work.

Thanks for posting.

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. :(
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  smileee21 year ago
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, :)

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!

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).

Great design! I'll have to give that a whirl (groan).

And you do look good in pictures, BTW!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  doxsys2 years ago
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.
