Infinity, revealed

We were away for Thanksgiving weekend, and I had some time to knit. There was even a little snow.

It was cold enough that a tiny snowman might need a scarf.


The snowman is wearing the fingering weight version of my new Infinity infinity scarf, in progress. No, I’m not repeating myself. It’s named Infinity for the infinity symbols on the center rectangles, and it’s an infinity, or loop scarf. Here’s the first version, in DK weight Noro Silk Garden Lite.


It’s really long!

It doubles up to make a wonderfully cozy, drapey cowl.

I finished the fingering weight version; it’s knit in Crystal Palace Mini Mochi. I knit it shorter than the Noro version, and I love the length. It doubles to make an airy, light as a cloud cowl.

I’ve been dying to show these to you, ever since I finished the first one! The pattern is available through the Infinity pattern page.

To celebrate my new design, I’m giving away two copies of the pattern, along with yarn to make your own Infinity. One will come with 2 balls of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi (in the green and purple colorway shown) and the other will have 3 balls of Noro Silk Garden Lite (as shown above). The Mini Mochi is enough to make the scarf as shown, and the Noro will make a shorter (but still plenty long) scarf (I used 4 balls for the sample, but I think it’s longer than it needs to be). Do you want one? Leave me a comment and let me know which one!

Don’t wait to buy the pattern if you want it now. If you’re a winner, you can choose a different pattern from my collection, and I’ll send it when I send the yarn for Infinity. Of course, you can knit anything you want with the yarn; I won’t send the knitting police after you if you choose to knit something else!

Contest closes next Tuesday, December 7, at midnight. Go!

  1. What a wonderful design combining entrelac and lace. I love them both but am partial to the Mini Mochi. Another way to wear this infinity here in chillin’ desert is head wrap/cowl. Perfect gift for the holiday too!

  2. Gorgeous! I like the noro. I just cut all my hair off and need some cute cowls to keep my poor naked neck warm!

  3. It’s beautiful! Very nice job….I’d love the Noro version. (It was so hard to choose!)

  4. i’d like to knit the mini mochi version. bring on the knitting police!

  5. I’m not fussy either would be great.

  6. Do I want one? Of course I do! I’d love to knit the mini mochi one.

  7. Love the colors in the mini mochi and I’ve never knit with it or done an entrelac pattern. 😉

    They both came out beautiful!

  8. I like the design and yarn. I just took an entrelac class. This would be a nice project to improve my skills.

  9. I’ve knitted your entrelac cowl a bunch of times and I love each one, but it will be nice to have a different version to play with. Either yarn would be fabulous and I do have a skein or two or six or ?? of sock yarn that will do quite nicely if I don’t win.

    These turned out just lovely! I really enjoy the idea of double infinity; seems lucky somehow!

  11. I love both and am intrigued by the pattern! I was in one of your Christmas stocking classes last year and I would happily knit either!

    Lovely, lovely, lovely! I’d love to win the fingering weight wool. Living in Kuwait you would think it never gets cold, but it does and a light infinity scarf would be perfect. I’m a math teacher and what would be more perfect than this gorgeous infinity scarf in my favorite purples? I’m dreaming already . . . . win or lose, it’s in my queue.

  13. Michelle, those are lovely! What a perfect use for those long color changes. I’m a Noro person, I’d use the Silk Garden! Or maybe some of the rose/ green/ brown sparkle merino top I got at Urban Fiber last week, navajo plied?

  14. Great Job….I like them both, but if I had to choose I’d choose the Noro. I’m going to put this in my Ravelry queue.

  15. The scarf reminds me of a quilt, I love the way the different colors play off each other – really appealing. The scarf with the purples and greens is just plain gorgeous!

  16. I simply love the colorway you used; so very comfortable looking. I see myself in one of these. Being left-handed causes me alarm about following patterns yet this one makes me say I can do this! Would love to win and start it the day I get my hands on it. Your snowman is just the cutest think I’ve seen for the season-all decked out in the scarf-what a imagination! Hope it is ME

  17. Have never done entrelac but your cowl makes me want to try it.

  18. It looks beautiful. You did a great job! Love that Mini Mochi but then I am a pushover for purple. 😉

  19. What a great pattern. Love both of them. Pick me!!!

  20. Oooh an entrelac infinity scarf? LOVE IT!

  21. Truly lovely!

  22. I am tremendously impressed. It would be a totally new skill for me so I think I’d prefer the shorter version in Mini Mochi. It might be a great idea for Christmas 2011. I know1 I know! I shouldn’t go there yet. Lovely design; lovely photographs. Cheers and red wine, Hazel.

  23. Very pretty! If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with the Mini Mochi, but I love them both.

  24. Your scarf really jumped out at me as I was trolling through my Ravelry groups. It is just gorgeous. I love both of them, but I love the green and purple one just a bit more!

  25. Love the Infinity! I’ve been telling myself that I WILL learn how to do entrelac in 2011…

    and I am absolutely smitten with the colors in both yarns. *sigh*

  26. I would love to win either one, but the Crystal Palace yarns in the Mini-Mochi really call to me. Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

  27. Ive wanted to learn entrelac for months now and the mini mochi Infinity Scarf would be the perfect intro project. It’s really a great pattern!

  28. I would love to win the purple/green mini mochi. I have never tried entrelac and your pattern looks terrific. Is that a Botero(sp) statue in one of your pictures. His sculptures always seem so cheerful!
