Baskin pattern by Rhiannon McCulloch

I’m in love with this pattern by Rhiannon McCulloch and after browsing through her designs- it’s not the only thing I was drooling over…
“The shawlette is an elongated crescent shape and knit from the top down, starting with 3 stitches and ending with just over 300. Zig zags grow in size as they reach the hem and are tipped with a triple picot bind off. It’s knit with a single skein of Superstar, so if you wanted to try out this delicious yarn, it could be a good project for you.

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.

Free super chunky infinity scarf knitting pattern

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!

Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick n’ Quick 212 yards (2 skeins)

Or in this case, alpaca! I knitted up this asymmetrical cowl in an evening of T.V. watching, and man do I love it. The free pattern is a really simple one, and I modified it a little bit by using K1 P1 ribbing instead of Garter stitch. Some nights making up an entire pattern on my own takes too much brain power, so I like to let another designer do the thinking for me.

I grabbed this awesome pattern by Susan Chang on Ravelry, and it only took a couple hours. I wasn’t watching the clock but I’m pretty sure by the end of 2 episodes of The Walking Dead I was done.

All you need to make this cowl is some super bulky yarn ( I used Yarn Bee Effortless Superbulky, which is a nice Alpaca Acrylic blend that you can find at Hobby Lobby), some size US13 (9.0mm) knitting needles, and a yarn needle for weaving ends and sewing the asymmetrical seam. This pattern didn’t even use up the entire skein. In fact I could probably get another one out of it!


Check out the pattern here on Ravelry, and to make my modified version simply work in K1, P1 ribbing and always slip the last 1st st. of the row. I also seamed it a bit differently, more in the middle as you can see in the last photo.

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!

Details:

The cowl is knit using bulky yarn, for my cowl I chose Cascade 128 Superwash in the colorway: Camel

3 skeins, approximately 384 yards of yarn are used to knit this scarf.

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

Gauge: 4 sts. & 6 rows = 1″ in stockinette (though since this is an infinity scarf, gauge isn’t terribly important).

Faux Cable Cowl Knit & Purl

Wow. I’m still amazed by how much this pattern looks like cables. This was one of the most satisfying projects I’ve ever done and here’s why:

1. The pattern was easy to memorize (it’s just knits and purls!!)

2. I could knit this in front of the TV without looking at my knitting (the first time I’ve ever been able to do this)

3. I didn’t mess up once. (The first time this has ever happened.)

I’m so glad I discovered this stitch pattern on Knitting Unlimited! I can see turning this into a longer infinity scarf, fingerless gloves, maybe even a bag or pillow cover….

I think you’ll be addicted to this stitch pattern too as you knit through each row, you’ll start to see how deceptively simple it is. This cowl knitting pattern pairs nicely with a bold merlot, and your favorite binge-worthy show on Netflix.

Ready for the pattern?

Ok, ok, but first you will need:

Size 8US (5mm) 16″ (40cm) circular knitting needles

1 Skein Lion Brand Heartland

Co. 120 sts. & join in the round

In the round:

Rounds 1-4 : p2, k4 to end of round

Round 5: K2, *p2, k4, rep. from * until 4 sts. rem., p2, k2

Round 6: k2, p2, *k4, p2 rep from * until 2 sts. rem., k2

Round 7: Rep. row 5

Keep warm, and enjoy!

The Never Ending Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

One of the things I love about crochet is the ability to create a long chain and crochet all the way across. I wanted a scarf that was high-fashion, yet inexpensive and easy to make, ridiculously long, and dramatic. I came up with this very simple pattern that works for worsted weight yarn- and love the results! It’s a great T.V. crochet project, with it’s long rows, and simple stitches. It is also surprisingly quick to make since you only turn your work 8 times! The scarf wraps around 3 times, and is still dramatically long!
