Saturnalia Infinity Scarf
Big, bold stripes of soft, colourful yarn, in an easy project with a nice rhythm to it: just the kind of knitting that makes me happy when the grey of winter has gone on too long.
Saturnalia is knit in the round on the bias, yielding a 7.5”/19cm wide scarf from a 24”/60cm circular needle. The doubled fabric and fine, springy, lofty yarn provide surprising warmth for the weight, while keeping the wrong side hidden from view. This infinity scarf uses a simple yet unusual technique that gives almost invisible increases without leaving a tighter increase edge. Saturnalia starts with a provisional cast on that is grafted to the end stitches using Kitchener stitch for a completely seamless look. The pattern includes instructions for using a regular cast on and seaming the ends, if the thought of grafting sends you screaming from the room. Saturnalia is designed to go twice around the neck; length is adjustable in increments of ~5”
You will need a 24”/60cm circular needle size US4/3.5 mm or size to obtain gauge, 2 skeins of light fingering to fingering weight yarn (one in each colour), a stitch marker, and a needle for grafting/seaming & weaving in ends.
