What makes this infinity scarf unique is its lovely herringbone knitting pattern. It takes a bit to get the hang of this knitting stitch, but if you only stick to your regular knit/purl – drumdedum… you’ll never make anything fancier.
So, I am helping you here to get to the next step up in sophisticated when it comes to infinity scarf patterns to knit. You can do it. here’s a pattern, video tutorial and tips. Everything you’ll possibly need besides the actual yarn and patience.
Prep things by Ordering your Yarn Now
Purlbee has made this infinity scarf using Alpaca yarn, You’ll need 5 skeins for this scarf, besides an US #17, 32" circular needle and a replaceable jumbo stitch marker. As this yarn is $13/skeins, I thought that it was going to be a tat expensive to make this scarf. That was my first thought. But then, … given how beautifully hand-dyed and cuddly soft this yarn is, it’s worth the cost. Just make yourself 1 scarf, not 10. This one is going to be a keeper.
Have a look at all these amazing colored yarns:
Make it in this lovely bone color, aloe, periwinkle blue, honeydew green, or whatever color you fancy. (thank you for using the above affiliate link when you purchase your yarn as these small commissions are what keeps this blog going.)

The Gauge, Size & Stitch Count for this Infinity Scarf Pattern
This yarn with this size needle gives you a gauge of 15 stitches = 4 inches in herringbone stitch. If you want your scarf to match this size that is shown in the example here by Purlbee (finished size: 14×58"), then you should cast on 220 stitches.
If you want your scarf to become larger or smaller than in this pattern, adjust either the needle size or your stitch count. If you want to adjust the stitch count, you should really first make your practice piece to check your exact gauge as well the way the stitch pattern works…
Check your Gauge
This little ‘before you get to start the real-thing’- piece of work is really worth it. And did you know that gauge- patches of 10×10 stitches or 15×15 really make lovely dishcloths, you can gift away at Christmas??!! So there. Do it. Check that gauge before you begin.
