I love snow, through a window, while curled up with a mug of hot chocolate, but I have kids and they always want to go out and build snow creatures, so I need to make sure I can wrap up warm!

The Snowflake infinity scarf features a tesselating snowflake design based on traditional Scandinavian knitting. The infinity scarf is designed to be long enough to wrap round the neck twice for extra warmth. The Snowflake infinity scarf is knitted as a long tube in the round with the pattern being incorporated using stranded colourwork. The tube is seamed at the end after blocking.

The Snowflake pattern is provided as both a chart and as written instructions.

One size: 33 cm tube circumference x 155.5 cm length circumference (13.25 in tube circumference x 62 in length circumference)
