Gargantuan Scarf

Gargantuan scarf free infinity scarf knitting pattern

I’ve been having a lot of fun with super bulky yarn lately. I wanted to find a way to knit a huge scarf without spending $100 on yarn. So I bought myself a pair of size 50 (25mm) knitting needles and got to work! I realized that if I held 2 strands of super-bulky yarn together, I could achieve the same effect as those beautiful Loopy Mango chunky knits.

I would love to get me some Loopy Mango yarn, don’t get me wrong. But after the holidays I decided that it wasn’t the right time to splurge. So for my first project, I used 2 strands of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick N Quick held together. It was a great substitute, though I have a feeling I’ll be trying out some more luxurious yarns on these huge needles soon.

You can order the needles on Amazon, and have them at your door in 2 days, which gives you enough time to finish whatever’s currently on your needles, and start this amazingly huge scarf! The cost of yarn for me was only about $16. A pretty good deal I think! You can grab your yarn on Amazon too, and some colors are really cheap ($3.99 for some colorways that qualify as an “add on” item). So are you ready to begin? Cause I’m already knitting this baby in gray!

You can head over to Ravelry to download the pattern, or follow along here!

    Where do I find size 50 needles?

    Did you find that curling was a problem? It looks like you’re doing a stockinette stitch which is notorious for curling. Or do you find that this chunkier style lays flatter? Thank you!

    • Hi Shaqueline, because the yarn is so heavy, I didn’t have a problem with curling. The edges curl in a little bit but only enough to hide them. It had a really nice effect!

  11. Andrea Cennington says:

    I just made this, I’m having a challenge with it laying correctly. Pls help.

  12. Cute Scarf!!!! Was wondering what you mean when you say you hold the yarn together? Do you actually knit them together?
