This holiday season at work I decided to make my Secret Santa recipient a hand knit scarf. I wasnt certain of what color they would like so I made it multicolor. 

Step 1: Supplies

I have a big basket of yarn with remnants left from other projects

Step 2: Needles Etc

You will also need knitting needles, I used size 15, as well as scissors and a needle. Oh and basic knitting skills!

Step 3: Cast On

Cast on 20 stitches and begin to knit.  I chose a bulky yarn and a thinner yarn and knit with both strands. I only use the basic knit stitch. I love the look of row after row of just knitting. 

Step 4: Knit

knit for about ten rows and then change either the thin strand or the bulky and replace 
it with another color.

Step 11: Near the End

When I get near the end I feed back in the colors I began with that way when I sew the seam the colors match. 

Step 12: Finish Knitting

Knit till you have reached about 4 feet. 

Step 13: 4 Feet

I like to use 4 feet because it gives the scarf a bulky loose look. If you want it a bit snug stop knitting sooner. 

Step 14: Bind Off

Bind off the needles by knitting two stitched
s together and then returning to the first needle.

Step 15: Sew Seam

On the last stitch pull the yarn through the stitch with enough length to sew the seam. Thread the needle and stitch up the infinity scarf. 

Step 16: Finished

That is awesome! I love how you changed only one strand at a time so it flows together so well and is so, so colorful at the same time!

Thanks...great to figure out what to do with that big-ol basket of odds & ends!

Ooh I love this. I agree with Penolopy about how you changed the strands for consistency. Very nice. I wish I had more bulky yarn in my stash!

Thanks so much...and.... thanks for the Dremel and apron prize in the Thanksgiving challenge!
