Interestingly enough, knitting is fairly new to me but once I began knitting cowls and scarves, I could not stop. I love the look of hand-knit items. They look intricate in their designs and cozy. Something about them makes me think of my grandmother (who I don’t ever actually remember seeing knit). Knitting is something that should be done in a comfortable chair in front of a fireplace while sipping hot chocolate and listening to a audiobook. It seems strange that I would imagine such details for a craft that I have not been doing for long, but I find great pleasure in both the idea and the art of knitting.
I’m a newbie when it comes to creating patterns, but I had an idea for an infinity scarf and could not find a pattern to suit the image that I had in my head. I am happy the the finished product came out EXACTLY as I had pictured (minus the small error of twisting the yarn). It’s heavy and thick and soft and warm.
The pattern is quite simple and, I know it was for me, and easy pattern for those getting used to knitting and purling in the same project, and knitting in a round. My nine-year-old daughter was able to do a few stitches too and found it quite simple. So even if you think you aren’t too good at knitting, give this one a try.
