Autumn Infinity Circle Scarf (free pattern)



About the Autumn Infinity Circle Scarf: 
Circle scarves are not only fashionable, but undeniably warm and cozy! This scarf has a simple ribbed pattern that can be knit up with just two stitches: knit and purl (watch the knit stitch 'how to' tutorial here, and the purl stitch tutorial here).  The yarn I chose to use is a beautiful earth-tone brown, thus, I decided to call this the "Autumn Infinity Circle Scarf".  My scarf ended up being about 52 inches in circumference, making it long enough to wrap around twice for some extra warmth ;).


Materials I Used:
- Bernat Satin  (color: sable); 1.5 skeins (~250 yards)
- 36'' circular needles US size 9




The Autumn Infinity Circle Scarf Pattern:
[ If new to knitting, watch a video about how to follow knitting patterns here ]
Using 36'' US 9 circular needles, cast on 260 stitches.
For each round: *K2, P2*
Keep knitting in the round until desired size. I went on for 35 rounds.
Bind off.



Abbreviations used in this pattern:
K2= knit two stitches
P2 = purl two stitches




Have fun and send me pictures if you decide to give this pattern a try!

  1. I bought this same yarn and needles and it doesn't look as "tight" as yours. This is my first time using the non-chunky yarn. Any advice?

    1. Hi!
      I am naturally a "tight knitter". For some reason I always pull my stitches tighter than they are supposed to be. I think this is just the natural way I knit.
      To help tighten your stitches, you can either pull the stitch tighter after each stitch (which is very time consuming), OR try to use smaller size needles (i.e. US size 8).
      Hope this helps! Good lucks!

  2. Is it possible to knit this on straight needles?

    1. This specific pattern is not for straight needles -- but you can use straight needles to knit a similar pattern and just connect the two ends of the scarf by weaving them together with yarn.

  3. Hi Lisa!
    I just wanted to say how excited I am that I came across your blog! One of my new year resolutions is to find a new hobby and I decided that I want to try knitting. I can't wait to try one of your patterns once I get started and get used to knitting and learning about it -- I just started subscribed to your YouTube channel, so I'm sure that will help me out a lot. :D
    Happy New Year!

    1. You would probably need a little less than 2 skeins : )
