You can arm knit this lovely chunky blanket in just 45 minutes! View the Free Pattern with Video here.

This infinity scarf pattern is perfect for beginners since it’s made up entirely of knits and purls.

With just these two stitches, you can knit up a squishy, textured scarf using the mistake rib stitch. This is one of my favourite stitches because, despite looking complicated, it’s actually deceptively easy!

Best of all, this infinity scarf is knit up in super bulky weight yarn, making it a very quick knit.

A note about construction: this scarf is knit flat and then seamed together at the very end.

Materials & Notes

Yarn Used: 4 skeins of Lana Grossa Ragazza Lei (100% merino wool; each skein is 44 yds/50g; color Hellgrau Meliert #31)

Other Similar Yarns:

    (gorgeous hand-painted yarn) in Cape Cod Grey or Sombras: (slightly thicker merino) in Tweed Grey (a budget acrylic option) in Dallas Grey

Recommended Needles: one pair of 10mm needles

Notions:

Finished Measurements:

  • Width: 7.5”
  • Circumference: 48”

Gauge: Gauge: 9.5 sts = 4”/10cm in stockinette stitch

Infinity Scarf Knitting Instructions:

CO 21 sts (or a multiple of 4+1)

Row 1: Sl1 knitwise, K1, *P2, K2; repeat from * to last 3 sts, P2, K1

Row 2: Sl1 purlwise, P1, *K2, P2; repeat from * to last 3 sts, K2, P1

Repeat Rows 1-2 until scarf measures roughly 42” or your preferred length.

Cast off, but don’t cut the yarn from the cast off edge. With the yarn, measure a length that is 7 times the width of the cast off edge. Cut the yarn at that point.

This length of yarn will be used to seam the scarf together to make an infinity scarf.

Fold the scarf in half with right sides facing. Hold the two ends of the scarf evenly together.

Thread the length of yarn onto a tapestry needle and seam the two ends of the scarf together using the backstitch method. As you seam, make sure the knit columns of the pattern are lined up.

Weave in loose ends. Block the scarf so that it measures 48” in circumference and 7.5” in width, or to desired length.

Abbreviations:

CO: cast on
K: knit
P: purl
Sl1 knitwise: slip one stitch as if to knit
Sl1 purlwise: slip one stitch as if to purl
* * : repeat instructions between asterisks the number of times indicated

Welcome to a week of easy, handmade scarf tutorials. It’s Scarf Week – like Shark Week, but far less frightening! From today until Friday, I’ll share with you 5 super-duper-simple handmade scarf tutorials that would make great gifts for your friends and family this Christmas season. These are seriously easy to knock out. I made all 5 scarves in a couple of little girl nap times over two days!

The first DIY scarf I want to share with you is a cozy, chunky arm knit scarf. I love how mine turned out! I’ve always wanted to try arm knitting, and it’s everything I imagined it would be. It’s SO fast, and a lot of fun.

Materials:

  • a couple balls of really thick yarn – I used Premier Yarns Couture Jazz in Swan, but you could use any size 6 yarn, or double up some thinner yarn
  • a fat crochet hook (I didn’t have one, so I used my fingers)
  • your arms

Directions:

This is the yarn I used (I ordered it online here), and it’s so fat and soft:

How to arm knit an infinity scarf

I think I’d prefer to use a really thick yarn like this rather than working with two thinner yarns together to avoid snagging and a lot of holes.

Here’s my arm with yarn on it as I sit by the fire an knit. This thing seriously took me 20 minutes to make. That’s including me figuring out how to tighten the yarn on my arms the best to achieve an even gauge.

Since it was virtually impossible to take photos of myself while doing this (the girls were sleeping and Hubby was at work), I’ll leave you with this lovely video tutorial from Simply Maggie. It’s the one I used to learn how to arm knit this scarf, and she does a fantastic job of explaining everything:

I followed Maggie’s directions exactly except for when she joins the scarf ends together. I didn’t have a massive crochet hook, so I just used my fingers to stitch through the scarf ends. It worked just fine.

So pretty, right? The one I made is more like a large cowl, and it’s very soft and warm. I’m going to try to make another one this week and I think they’ll make great Christmas gifts!

So here you go. I have created four different cuff patterns. One including a button hole . If you don’t know how to knit a button hole then try one of the patterns that you permanently attach to your scarf for now.

  • Size 13 (9mm) knitting needles
  • Size 10.00mm crochet hook
  • Large button
  • Yarn needle
  • Sewing needle and thread if you get a button with small holes.

This pattern for the beginner infinity scarf is for all those knitters out there that can’t stand just going for it and knitting anything that comes to mind. They like rules, and they like to know exactly how something is going to look when it’s done. That’s the kind of knitter I was starting out. I literally googled the “average scarf length” and “average scarf width.” So if you’re an experienced knitter and just want a super quick and easy knit, or a brand new knitter who doesn’t quite understand the magic of making a scarf quite yet, here you go…

How to arm knit an infinity scarf

Yarn Needed for the Beginner Infinity Scarf:

Two skeins of Knit Picks Chroma Twist Bulky in Surf’s Up. You of course can choose any color you prefer, but Surf’s Up is in all the photos and videos on this page.

Knitting Needles Needed:

Size 10 US Size, or 6 mm.

10″ Sunstruck Straight Needles used in all photos and videos on this page.

Notions Needed:

Optional Good Things to Know:

It’s a scarf, so if yours comes out differently then mine, it’s totally fine and not a big deal at all. Knitters naturally have different styles and tensions. But…if you’d like to know the specifics of the scarf I knitted here you go. Keep in mind all measurements were taken after I washed the scarf.

Finished Measurements:

58 inches total. Folded over, after it was sewn, 29 inches.

Gauge:

14 stitches and 12 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch, machine washed and air dried.

The Beginner Infinity Scarf Pattern:

Cable cast on 28 stitches.

Knit every row! How to do the knit stitch:

For more on how to knit check out my original How to Knit post. You are going to knit both skeins of yarn. When you notice you’re getting to end of your first skein of yarn, join your yarn, like this:

For more tips on joining yarn, check out my original How to Join Yarn post.

Knit until you have about five feet left of the second skein. How do you know you have about five feet left of the second skein of yarn? Just measure against your body. Is it about your height? Cool, plenty of yarn left. The tail should be long enough to bind off and to sew together.

Cast off all your stitches:

For more tips on casting off, check out original post How to Cast Off the Easy Way!

How do you sew it together? However you darn well please. I twisted my scarf once because I think it drapes better.

Fine, if you insist here’s how I sewed mine together:

If you want to help yourself keep it even while sewing, use a safety pin (without a coil, like this) to pin the ends together while you sew.

Weave in your ends in 2 directions for 1-2 inches. Then cut off end. Don’t stress and don’t knot!

Once you’re done, you’ll want to machine wash your Beginner Infinity Scarf. I prefer to put mine in a delicates bag to make sure it doesn’t catch on any of my other laundry, and wash on cold/delicate. Do not be surprised when it comes out way longer! Superwash wool has a tendency to STRETCH. The magic of washing your scarf will be all of your stitches will significantly even out. This is called blocking in knitting. I air dried my scarf flat. Enjoy your beautiful new scarf! Be sure to add your project photos to Ravelry! (New to Ravelry? Check out my guide to this awesome social network here.)

Good morning! It’s spring… well, sort of. We still have snow falling this week. But hey – that’s Michigan for you. I know I’m a little biased toward northern accessories like a spring scarf (don’t laugh, all you readers down in Florida) but the truth is, a lightweight scarf like this one makes for a cute accessory year-round up here. You may have caught my preview of this project the other day when I posted some silly mother-daughter photos over the weekend. I’ve become an arm-knitting junkie. The first project I made was a blanket, and today I’m going to share a tutorial for a slightly smaller project: an arm-knit infinity scarf.

How to arm knit an infinity scarf

Because your arms are much larger than knitting needles, arm-knit projects work up really quickly. By my 3rd or 4th project, I was cranking out scarves in about 15-20 minutes, so you can do this on a lunch hour, during naptime, or while you watch your favorite TV show. All you need is your yarn and your arms! This project uses one skein that’s 35 yards for 18-20 rows of 8 stitches (I say 18-20 because it depends how large your arms are and how tight or loose you make your stitches. This isn’t as uniform as specifically-sized needles.) If you’ve chosen a yarn that’s only 30 yards, that should still work all right – you can always make your scarf 6 or 7 stitches wide instead.

How to arm knit an infinity scarf

This project is a little different than the tutorials I’ve seen out there. Instead of using 2 skeins of a bulky yarn, I picked a yarn geared specifically toward scarf projects so that I could make it more lightweight and more suited for the changing weather. See, you don’t actually need several skeins of yarn to arm-knit. You will have a lot leftover. What you need more than one skein for is to double or triple the bulk going into your weave – to work with more than one strand to make your piece thicker – to compensate for the large knit. Less yarn also makes this a lot more cost-effective project: this scarf cost me $4.19. Granted, I used a 40% off coupon for my yarn, but you can do the same, and you don’t need ANY tools but the ones you were born with. 🙂

What You Need:

This scarf is a really quick and easy project. You’ll only need about an hour of time, a little practice, and of course, your two arms. I’ve found the best results in using two strands of bulky yarn at the same time.

Here are a few of the bulky weight yarns I recommend:

You’ll need two skeins of bulky yarn at approximately 100 yards each.
