{Hand Knit Infinity Scarf}

I have a funny relationship with knitting; either I love it or I don't. I tend to start projects but rarely finish them resulting in bags and bags of unused yarn. Right now I happen to be on a knitting kick and I actually finished something! I'm not a pro knitter but I know the basic knit and purl. This project is great for beginners or people with short attention spans because it doesn't require a lot of concentration and you can easily pick up where you left off. The finished scarf is simple but impressive, the different textures add dimension and make it look more complex than it really is! Instructions after the break.
DIY Handknit Infinity Scarf
Like I mentioned, I'm not a knitting pro, so the easiest way I can describe this pattern is to purl a bunch of rows, then knit a bunch of rows until you get the length you want and then you sew the ends together.

• medium weight yarn
• size 6 (US) needles

  1. With size 6 needles, cast on 40 stitches.
  2. Purl 15 rows.
  3. Knit 20 rows.
  4. Repeats steps #2 and #3 until you get your desired length (finish with purl rows to ensure your pattern is alternating when complete)
  5. Bind off.
  6. Sew the ends together with yarn and a tapestry needle. (I tried being clever and cast both ends off together so I could skip the sewing...I don't recommend this unless you have some knitting experience. I needed an Advil afterwards.)
FUN TIP: The bulkier the yarn and the bigger the needle, the faster this project will be complete because there is less knitting involved. If you choose to work with bulkier yarn, reduce the number of rows accordingly.
