Let the words tick off your needles as you knit your favorite quote, lyrics, poem, or saying into an unusual infinity scarf.

Fully charted English uppercase alphabet, punctuation marks, and numbers for vertical knitting. Knit in the round with a provisional cast on, the ends are grafted together with kitchener stitch.

Skills required: provisional cast on, knitting in the round, stranded knitting, grafting.

Sample spells out the first four lines of Robert Frost’s poem Mending Wall:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

SIZE: Any length you want! Let the text come clicking off your needles and keep going.

Sample is 192” in length. Two skeins of medium weight fingering yarn should be adequate for a very long scarf. Sample uses 490 yds of each color, or approx. 1 1/3 skeins each of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock.
