I love hand made gifts, especially when they keep you warm. This is a pattern I originally made for my mother-in-law. She wanted an infinity scarf that wasn't too bulky while still thick enough to look and feel warm.
-US 13 knitting needles
-100yds Super Bulky wool blend (you'll want a blend or 100% acrylic so it won't be itchy) I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool. Not a bad yarn but mine did eventually start to shed.
-Cast on 20 stitches
-Begin working straight and Knit every row
-Work until you have about 50 inches of yarn left.
-Sew ends together.
Optional: Twist your scarf before you sew the ends to keep your scarf from looking like a turtle neck.
You can use one skein for a simple scarf or two for more drama!
