Why is our lovely friend Helena smiling? Because she’s wearing a cozy, luscious infinity scarf that’s a cinch to knit—any beginner can do it, but it’s fun, mindless knitting for experienced knitters too (hey, we all need a break once in a while, right?).
Wind it up snug around your neck or let it go to show off its beautiful drape. The easy to work stitch pattern has a rippling texture that’s knit right in, so the scarf naturally falls into lovely folds. And it’s reversible—who doesn’t love that?
Shown above, the medium size infinity scarf was knit in spirit trail holda, a smooshy, 12-ply lambswool/cashmere/angora blend in colorway sorbet. As the years have gone by and I started producing my own natural yarns under the Bare Naked Wools label, I have several suggestions for yarn choices:
Cabecou Sport – Get gorgeous sheen with this luxe blend of Coopworth, mohair and just the right amount of tussah silk.
Chebris Sport – A super-soft blend of yearling mohair and merino wool. Chebris creates a cozy, luxury fabric that blocks beautifully and has delightful versatility.
Ginny DK – Get the comfort of cotton combined with the warmth and versatility of wool. Ginny is breathable, light and oh-so-gentle on the skin. Perfect for kids, babies and sensitives.
You can get all the details as well as download the pattern from the Bare Naked Wools pattern shop.
Many, many thanks to Helen and Hattie for test knitting this pattern—where would we be without their enthusiasm? Helen knit hers in a special gift skein of holda, shown below in colorway purple haze. i don’t know if Helen looks happy enough to be wearing it; what do you think?
And lastly (but not least), a big round of applause for Helena, who never hesitates to offer some time for modeling and helping in myriad ways; she’s a delightful friend, thank you Helena!
