This fun and easy pattern makes a really beautiful infinity scarf, very cozy and nicely textured.

Scarf is knitted with three strands which makes this scarf a fast knit. You can adjust the pattern to another yarn, change the size or length of the finished object, and play with the color choices!

The stitch I used for this scarf is sometimes called double moss, double seed, british moss, 2x2 checkerboard, etc. I prefer to call it “chunky checkerboard” :) If you want your scarf to look more chunky and cozy, I suggest not to block it in order to save that amazing fluffy structure. On the other hand, blocking can reveal the real checkerboard texture. I would consider knitting a 4”x4” sample and looking at it both blocked and unblocked so that you can decide which one works better for you.
