PLEASE NOTE THAT JEFF GILLIES ORIGINAL PATTERN HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR HANDKNITTERS!!!

Nakia Infinity Scarf

This is not a pattern. These are just notes that I took as I went along. This is my interpretation of the charts…they may or may not be correct, but this is how I Made my version of the scarfblush

Provisional Cast on 90 with Noro (3 stitches knit selvage on each side selvage is UNDERSTOOD and continued throughout project. It is NOT MENTIONED again moving forward in any stitch counts, etc.)

I READ CHART LEFT TO RIGHT FOR ODD ROWS AND RIGHT TO LEFT FOR EVEN ROWS

Rows 1-8 stocking stitch
Row 9: knit, twisting stitches 15, 26, 37, 48, 59, 70, knit to end
Row 10: purl
Row 11: repeat row 9
Row 12: repeat row 10
Rows 13, 15 and 17: knit, remove stitches 15&16 to stitch holder, twist 180 degrees and replace on left needle, knit. Repeat for stitches 26&27, 37&38, 47&48, 58&59, 69&70, knit to end
Rows 14, 16 and 18: purl
Row 19, : knit, remove stitches 14&15&16 to a stitch holder, twist 180 degrees and replace on left needle, knit. Repeat for stitches 25&26&27, 36&37&38, 47&48&49, 58&59&60, 69&70&71, knit to end
Row 20: purl
Row 21: knit
Row 22: purl, remove stitches 69&70&71 to a stitch holder, twist 180 degrees and replace on left needle, Purl. Repeat for stitches , 58&59&60, 47&48&49, 36&37&38, 25&26&27, and 14&15&16, purl to end
Row 23: knit

Row 27: knit
Row 28: purl

Row 36: knit
Row 37: purl

((For Rows 38, 42, 46, and 50 Bring in a single strand of Noro, using it to weave in front and behind knitted stitches))
IT WOULD PROBABLY BE EASIER TO KNIT EACH WRAP ROW, THEN TAKE A STRAND OF NORO ON A TAPESTRY NEEDLE AND WEAVE AND WRAP ACCORDING TO THE CHART. OR YOU COULD KNIT AS FOLLOWS:
