Lacey Arches Infinity Scarf

By: Tina Keenan of Made For Ewe

This lacey infinity scarf is a really fun and easy knit. It’s

knit in the round on fairly large needles. The lace

pattern is a 10-stitch repeat so it’s easy to enlarge the

diameter of the scarf. For every lace repeat added (10

stitches), the diameter of the scarf will increase by

approximately 2”. The scarf pictured has a diameter of

48” and will wrap comfortably around your neck twice.

Size: 48" in diameter - 12" wide Gauge: (in pattern) 3 sts/inch 5 rows/inch *It’s always a good idea to knit a swatch. This is what the gauge for this pattern is based on.* Materials Needed: 24" size 10.5 circular needles Approx. 300 yds. of a worsted weight yarn (Scarf pictured was knit using Plymouth Yarn Encore Knitting Worsted Weight…2 skeins with plenty left over from second skein) Stitch markers Instructions: Cast on loosely 150 stitches using Old Norwegian Cast On (or any elastic cast one that you prefer). Join in the round taking care to not twist the stitches. Place marker designating beginning of round (BOR). Knit one round. Instructions/diagrams for the Old Norwegian Cast On can be found here. http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/howto/archive/2008/05/15/old-norwegian-cast-on.aspx


**I chose the Old Norwegian Cast On because it is a very elastic cast on. It looks the same on both sides and complimented the Icelandic Bind Off very nicely.**

Following chart, knit until piece measures 12" (or desired width).

Be sure to end after a full lace repeat.

Bind off using Icelandic Bind Off.


Icelandic Bind Off: Knit the first stitch. Slip it purl-wise

back to the left hand needle. Place the tip of the right

hand needle into the first stitch on the left hand needle

purl-wise, then slip it through the second stitch on the

left hand needle knit-wise. Knit and pull the new stitch

through both stitches allowing them to drop from the

left hand needle. Repeat until one stitch remains. Cut

the yarn and pull it through the last loop.

Block using your favorite blocking method. The scarf pictured was knit in an acrylic blend (Plymouth Yarn

Encore - 75% acrylic, 25% wool) and responded well to steam blocking. With the lace pattern used, one

side of the scarf will block straight. The other side of the scarf will have a nice wave to it. Do not try to

block this side straight. The peaks of the lace can be pinned out during blocking to make them more

prominent if desired.

**I chose this bind off because it

gave the edge a nice finished


**When I knit this I placed a stitch marker after each lace repeat. This made it easy to find any mistakes that I may have made.**
