Wake and Whimsy

The Transitional Infinity Scarf


This may be one of my favorite knitted creations so far for several reasons. But I really love it mostly because it is so warm, it’s super soft, and it’s very versatile.

In fact, you can wear it at least three different ways:

Wear it as a regular infinity scarf

As an infinity scarf

Wrap it around

Wrap it around

Pull the back up over your head for a cozy hoodie

Pull the back up over your head for extra warmth

What I love most is the functionality. It’s easy to just throw on and go, and it matches almost everything. I plan on making a lot more of these to get through the rest of winter.


You Can Do It Too:

For the yarn, I used Lion Brand-Homespun Thick&Quick.

With size 13US needles, cast on 30 stitches.

All I did was a basic knit stitch, although you can really do whatever stitch you’d like.

Just keep knitting….you want to make sure it is long enough to wrap around, and pull up over your head.

Once you reach the length you want, simply cast off, and sew the ends together using a yarn needle.

It’s that easy!

To answer some frequently asked questions about this project:

  1. This scarf takes only one skein of the Lion Brand Homespun Thick&Quick yarn. If there are smaller skeins AND larger skeins available, get the largest one.
  2. Once completed, my scarf measured to be about 38 inches long (after sewing it together), and about 26 inches wide.
  3. It may appear that there isn’t really a pattern, but that’s only because this project is so easy! Just follow the directions above which tells you how many stitches to cast on, what size needles, what type of yarn, and then you seriously just do a basic garter stitch through the entire thing. Lastly, just sew it together once you’re finished!

  1. Can I use Lion Brand Wool Ease thick and quick wool.

  2. I’m new to knitting but my scarf is turning out beautiful. When I sew the ends together do I use the same yarn or just thread? It seems like the yarn would make a ridge that you could see. Thanks

  3. Could it be possible the knitting needle size should be large?. I’m using the size 13 us which is 00..my scarf is only 15 1/2 inches wide….I sure my ball of yarn is not going to give me a 38″ long scarf. Im not a tight knitter but I think that this yarn could provide a looser stitch than what I am getting.

  4. Would a 160 yard skein be enough?

  5. Beautiful–thanks for sharing this!

  6. Can you use size 10 mm needles. ..the store did not have 9mm needles…thanks

  9. I made this scarf on circular needles and I just loved it. I used one and a half of the thick & quick. Really warm and soft.

  10. Couldn’t you use circular needles to avoid sewing the ends together?

  11. When I go to allfreeknitting it says click here for the pattern, it brings me here. I do not see any pattern or link to pattern here. I love this scarf and have some beautiful yarn to make it.

    • Hi Carolyn! This project is so easy, it’s almost as if you don’t even really need a pattern. I cast on 30 stitches, using size 13 US needles, and Homespun Thick&Quick yarn. All I did was a garter stitch or knit stitch throughout the entire thing. It took just one whole large skein of the yarn I bought, and ended up measuring around 38 inches long. Once I was finished, I simply sewed the ends together, and that’s it!

  12. how long did your infinity scarf end up being? looks great!

  13. So one skein does this scarf?

  14. How many skeins did you use? I love Lion Brand, it’s so soft!
