Easy Loom Knit Wool Infinity Scarf

It’s been a long time, so this first week of 2019 I’m sharing a just-finished, easy-to-make loom knit, wool infinity scarf.

I’m not new to loom knitting, but wanted to challenge myself beyond a basic e wrapped hat, so I looked (for the first time) to Craftsy https://www.craftsy.com/ for an easy-to-make project. There I found a pattern for this double knit infinity scarf using a 38 peg oblong loom. That patterns are rated for level of difficulty made it easy for me to choose one I felt confident tackling. Even so, getting this cast on and into the groove of the four row pattern was tough at first; after that-cake!     

What a lovely wool lap blanket while working on it!

Icelandic cream colored wool used.

So here it is-ready to go out on a cold, windy day without any ends to flap around!

Though I’m happy with the outcome of this easy loom knit scarf, I plan to do another with a more colorful, multi yarn. And after that, back to Craftsy for more inspiring projects!
