Wow!! I can’t believe the amount of love this scarf has received in such a short time! Except that I can believe it because it’s fabulous, and I’m so excited to share it with you all. As requested, here’s a basic recipe to make your own! Thank you all so much for all the kind words!

The ‘My Favourite Things’ Infinity Scarf is a stranded colourwork scarf knit in the round as a long tube, then grafted at the ends. This pattern calls for a comfort level with simple stranding and gives lots of space for creativity and customizing. It is knit in worsted weight yarn and the result is a very bulky, happy scarf that will wrap around twice.

It is recommended that you use at least ten colours to give yourself variety in your combinations, but it could easily be done with as few as two colours. This project is a great way to use up scrap yarn.

In the attached file you’ll find some basic tips and motifs to get you started. Below I’ve linked to some useful videos and charts that helped me along the way. I hope that if you make this scarf you’ll share your project! I’d love to see what everyone else would do with this scarf!
