Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round
  • cross yarn tails and yarn beginnings over working yarn to weave it in during knitting will be an advantage

Pattern Description:

I've been always fascinated by the elgegance of horses...
As the horse beanie became very popular I longed for a matching scarf to go with it.
And as loop scarves or infinity scarves can be seen everywhere I thought I give it a try.
There are three different horses on it, the bands divided by a little easy-to-knit horseshoe chart.
I knit the horses in two colors (light brown and black), but you can certainly knit them in your favorite colors or your favorite horse colors.
You can only use two colors (e.g. black and off-white through the whole scarf).
The horses are bigger this time ;-)
So there was more room for detail.

There is a running (black) horse with flying mane, a prancing horse and one just jumping round the meadow -head down, tail up, enjoying him-/herself!

See these proud and gorgeous horses develop during your knitting!
It will take some time to knit it but in the end ...
everyone will envy you for this great and unique horse scarf!

The scarf is completely knitted in the round and grafted together at the ends. I used 4-ply sock yarn. You can use Acrylic yarn or Merino yarn of similar weight (214 - 230 yards/50g). Anything similar will do.
Gauge is not that important.

You can also make it longer or shorter if you like or turn it into a plain simple scarf and close the ends afterwards and put tassels or a fringe at both ends.

Enjoy and happy knitting!


Is not important, but my gauge was:
Knitting gauge: 8 stitches and 9 rows = 1 x 1 inch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Infinity scarf measurements: measuring flat: length: 70 cm (140 cm all around), width: 18 cm.


  • used 4-ply sock yarn leftovers of different manufacturers. But you can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight or thicker. The complete scarf weighs about 200 g. I needed about 4-ply sock yarn (230 yards): 80 g in off-white, 45 g in black, 45 g in dark brown, 30 g in light brown

You Will Also Need:

  • Circular needle 40 cm 3.0 mm (alternatively 3.25 mm or 3.5 mm).
  • a tapestry needle to weave in the ends and to graft the scarf together
  • Love of horses! :)

Suggested yarn:

230 yards of Fingering weight
