This stranded colourwork infinity scarf was inspired by old-fashioned woven gingham. Knit in the round, and then grafted to form a loop, the scarf showcases a simple gridded check that is most often used as a background or filler to more complex colourwork designs, but which I think looks lovely on its own.

Ronnie Hazelhurst - meister of 1970s British light entertainment - gave his name to this design. I found designing and knitting this scarf strangely like a Hazelhurst tune - I just couldn’t get it out of my head.

2 skeins (2 x100g / 734 yards) of Renaissance Dyeing Organic Poll Dorset in shades Carmine and Ecru. Short (20cm) circular needle, or dpns in size to get gauge. Waste yarn in a contrasting colour. Spare circular needle or dpns for holding stitches. If substituting yarn, you will need 2 skeins of sock- weight or light 4 ply in 2 contrasting shades. The scarf uses less than 340 yards of each shade.
