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!

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern: $5.00


I’ve been on a serious crochet binge lately! I think I just love how fast it is to finish something really impressive. Sometimes you just need those quick projects to keep you going. Although this hooded infinity scarf is huge- I finished it in an evening.

If you haven’t noticed- I’m kind of a big baby when it comes to cold weather. I knit and crochet a lot of things that never get worn. Not because I don’t like them, but because I have a serious aversion to leaving my house when it’s below 40 degrees. And let’s be honest, is there really any real reason to leave your house in the winter? Can’t we as humans develop the technology to hibernate already? You would think.

But if you find yourself needing to brave the sub 40 temperatures this year, I’ve got you covered. Literally! (That’s a scarf pun for you). If you want something that will get you from point A to point B without even noticing a chill, this is your garment!

The Serendipity hood is a blast to make, and a blast to wear. The oversized look adds a bit of drama, and it’s kind of… dare I say…. sexy? Sexy and ninja-esque. And warm. And let’s be honest- warm, sexy, ninja are the only 3 words that matter in fashion this fall!

Free Pattern: Textured Knit Purl Cowl

IMG_1633 copy

An Ad-Free, printable version of this pattern is available in my Etsy Shop! Click Here

As you’ve probably guessed, I’ve been going through a little bit of a cowl phase. I love how easy and quick it is to knit up a 1 skein cowl. So I may have gotten a little carried away, but here’s another one. I bought 3 50g. skeins of Karabella Margrite Bulky yarn on ebay for $18 over a year ago- and I decided it was time to stop hoarding the cashmere!

I was overthinking it- afraid to use up “the good yarn”. This cashmere blend yarn is luxurious- it doesn’t need a complicated pattern, just something elegant and simple. This textured cowl is so easy to make, and the pattern is one of the easiest to memorize that I’ve found! I was able to knit and watch TV without messing up once (which is something I’ve never been able to say.)

If you know how to knit in the round, knit, and purl, then you can make this deceptively simple cowl!

What you need:

Yarn:

3 skeins (approx. 230yds / 210m) bulky yarn (I am using Karabella Margrite Bulky)

Gauge:

4 sts. and 6 rows = 1” in stockinette

Needles/Notions:

Us Size 10 (6.0mm) 16inch (40cm) circular knitting needles

stitch marker

Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Abbreviations:

CO – Cast On

K – Knit

P – Purl

BO – Bind Off

pm – Place Marker

 

Begin Pattern:

CO 120 sts. Join in the round, pm, and begin round 1

 

Round 1:  *[k3, p1, k1, p1] twice, K3; rep. from *

Round 2: k3, p4, k1, p4, k3

 

Rep. rounds 1 & 2 until scarf is about 9 inches (23cm) tall. BO with a stretchy BO. Weave in all ends and enjoy!

New Fall 2015 Infinity Scarf Pattern

Arborista cowl pattern margoknits.com

I am so excited to share my latest pattern with you! Some of you may have seen a little preview on Instagram, and it’s finally here and ready to put on your needles! The Arborista Cowl features an alternating pattern of lacy leaves, and contrasting solid ribbing for a truly eye-catching effect.

I wanted a lace pattern, but I also wanted a break in between where I could watch TV. and knit this infinity scarf. (You see where my priorities lie!) I wanted something that captures the spirit of fall (is that too corny?) and something that is truly fashion forward and unique. I think this infinity scarf achieves all of these things- and the pattern is so much simpler that you would imagine!

You will also need size 10.5 knitting needles, and a yarn needle for seaming and weaving in ends.
