Winter Seeds : Free Seed Stitch Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

free seed stitch infinity scarf pattern


Happy September! Who’s ready for fall yet? I’ll admit, after a year in the Caribbean, I’m excited to break out my jeans, boots, and of course, my yarn! I knitted this infinity scarf in Belize, awaiting the day when I’d actually be able to wear it. Unfortunately, that day has not come as it is 95 degrees here in Ohio. I’m in no rush to say goodbye to the sun, but I am ready to say hello to my cowls!

This is a really simple pattern, and great for beginners. What I love most about my pattern is the yarn. The mint green and gray colorway from Nerd Girl Yarns was so amazing I bought 5 skeins so…. matching hat to come? I think so. Ok, onto the knitting!


Please note: This pattern is available to view on the blog for free, if you would like a printable version, it is available for purchase in my Ravelry shop.

    If you cast on an odd number of stitches, you can join and keep working without having to count rows! I’ve made seed stitch cowls… use a super loose cast on!

    What size needles?

  3. Hi! I like this pattern very much! I bought some yarn, but I think it is a little bit thinner than yours. My question is: how long is your scarf? I would like to measure number of stitches for cast on by myself, according to gauge.
    Thank you!

  4. Lovely scarf! What cast on method did you use? Thanks :)

  5. Could you tell me which yarn base your purchased? Is it Squishy?


  6. Hi.
    I am currently using your pattern to make the infinity scarf. I cast on 161 stitches on size 11 circular needles. I’m using bulky yarn. Currently it seems like the width/circumference of the scarf is too small. Does it become larger or should I cast on more stitches? Help please!

    • Maybe your needles are longer? I’m not sure, but you can cast on any odd number of stitches if you want to make the scarf longer
