quick knit: infinity scarf

Challenging myself to use my stash 
it's really getting me into the mood.



The first few days felt like "being on a diet", but now I am enjoying the process and the end results:
#1 - having less leftover yarn and less clothes in my "to-re-do" pile
#2 - I have few more pieces of clothing that are actually "new"


First: pick the yarn.
Because I wanted a fast knit, I joined together several leftovers until I've got it right to be knitted with 6 mm needles.


Time to knit:
* cast on 59 stitches
* and keep knitting, following the pattern on the picture above, for about 21"
* join the two ends on the wrong side

... voilà!

xox, d.

will party here

  1. Ok, I can totally do this, except the cabling. I need to learn that and then possibly I could totally make this!!
