Infinity Scarf Super Chunky

I love a quick knit and so much more when it is a chunky yarn. A quick and easy project you can finish in a night.

I bought this yarn last year, named super bulky, suggested needles were 10mm. I tried them, but the scarf was going to be sooo stiff, as to be unwearable. A softer drape in order, I decided upon my chunky 15.00mm needles.

I cast on a few stitches and set about in garter stitch, for all the patterns out there I so love a basic garter, so simple and stunningly textural. No thinking involved just knit...

Two and a half balls of my chunky pink pepper coloured yarn and two cuppas later, Here we have it. FINISHED.
Modeled on the gorgeous Paper winning dress. Check it out here. :)

Chunky Yarn two balls and a half about 130m.

15 mm needles  Cast on 20 stitches AND knit. knit knit. Then join when you have tried it on a few times to your liking.

A normal standard length Infinity scarf is suggested 60 inches - a whopping 1.5metres. I just knitted up the two balls that I had and added another HALF.

A short scarf is about 55 inches long
A medium scarf is about 70 inches
A long scarf is aprrox. 82 inches.
Widths of scarves vary also : Men's scarves are normaly 6 inches wide, while women's scarves vary from 5 to 10 inches wide.

Mine vary all over the place. Depending on the yarn. Its all about what you want to do with it...

Have fun looking around and if you need anything else just holler.
