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! So are you ready to begin? Cause I’m already knitting this baby in gray!

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

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!
