...Super Simple 2 Needle Infinity Scarf...

...a sweet friend wanted an infinity scarf...so we went together and picked out a nice fuzzy super soft yarn...

...I didn't have a great big circular needle...so I cast on 120 stitches...and crammed them onto my size 15 straights...and knit in stockinette stitch for 35 rows...

...that's it...you're pretty much done...
...now make one twist in the scarf...and line up the ends...and just duplicate stitch them together...starting with the working yarn to the left stitch up through the last loop on the right then bring the yarn across the empty space and stitch down through the last loop on the left...then bring the yarn under the base stitch and back up through the hole...creating a duplicate knit stitch...then just start over from there...come up through the next stitch up on the right...etc...

...this type of seam works perfectly...lies flat and creates an invisible seam...
...of course this is me modeling the scarf...
...and me modeling it with a double loop...
...and here it is all by itself...see the twist...

...I really hope she likes it...

~Have a lovely day!
