Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Either: Grafting / Kitchener Stitch join
  • Or: Three-Needle Bind-Off

Pattern Description:

Knitters might call this a "Moebius Scarf". The fashion industry prefers to use the term "Infinity Scarf" - but whatever you call it this is one accessory that is going to be worn over and over again.

The key to this scarf's success is the twist. It sits neatly whether you wear it just draped loosely around your neck or wrapped around twice for a fuller finish. You can even wear it over your head like a hood to keep your ears warm against the oncoming breezes.

The pattern is worked in one of the softest and coziest fibres around - 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, which can either be hand-spun or purchased.
