Super Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf

I got these lovely balls of yarn from We are Knitters (WAK) at the end of the year when I first opened my Handmade by Phanessa Etsy shop and I just got so caught up and busy with pattern writing, it got put on the back burner. The color Bordeaux is amazingly rich and the yarn is so soft!

I originally started a blanket and then thought "Who am I kidding?" A scarf or something smaller would be better (for me) and faster. I had the idea of using only half of what I got to make the scarf & the other half will be part of my giveaway on Instagram. 

When I first signed up for Instagram strictly dedicated to my handmade items, I never thought I would get where I am now. 1 year later and 17k followers. I hit 1k in August and then it sort of spiraled out of control (in a good way). It has been amazing and I absolutely love doing these giveaways too. 

I wanted to create something simple and beautiful. Personally I'm a circular needle kind of gal but since WAK uses straight needles, I decided to make a chunky scarf using the moss stitch. In the end, I did switch to circular needles because it was much more easier on my wrist and hands.  

Super Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf | 10.5" Wide | 64" Circumference

Skills Required:

Long tail cast on
Casting off
Adding new ball of yarn
Seaming the ends
Weaving in ends


The Wool Yarn (2 balls) 400 grams total | 160 Meters
15mm Knitting Needles
Yarn Needle (large eye)


co - Cast on
k- Knit
p - Purl


Co 18 stitches (if you want your scarf thinner and longer, cast on less stitches)

Rows 1-2: *k1, p1. Repeat from * across
Rows 3-4: *p1, k1. Repeat from * across

Repeat rows 1-4 until you have just enough yarn to cast off. Add new ball of yarn at the beginning of a new row (not in the middle of a row). Then, cast off in pattern. With the 2 short ends together, sew the edges with a yarn needle.

Weave in all ends.

  1. This scarf is so beautiful! I'm a new knitter, found your site through ravelry and am really enjoying checking our your work and patterns. How "sheddy" did you find The Wool yarn compared to other brands? I love the way super chunky single-ply looks when it's knit up, but I'm worried about the shedding.


    1. Hi Tina, thanks for stopping by! I Honestly don't know. I gave this away as a giveaway prize on Instagram after making it (@designsbyphanessa) and so I don't know how much it sheds (if it does). It was really nice to work with though!
