Introducing the Neck Nuzzler Infinity Scarf!

Schnapps loves the Noggin Nuzzler hat and the Body Nuzzler blanket square, so he decided to put that pattern to use and create the Neck Nuzzler Infinity Scarf!  This scarf works up very quickly and used just one skein of Lion Brand's Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.  He just knit until he had just enough for the bind off!  

The Neck Nuzzler is knit in the round, eliminating the need for any seams.  This can easily be made into a mobius infinity scarf too by just twisting your stitches before joining in the round.

He liked this so much that he's raffling it off to a lucky winner.  Raffle tickets can be purchased online - just email robin@delawareheadhuggers.org and let me know you are interested.  Raffle tickets are $1 each and 6 for $5.  Once I receive payment, I will email you the ticket numbers that are for you.  Payment can be made via PayPal.  The drawing will be on October 10, 2015 or a few days later depending on if we are waiting for people to pay.  We don't want anyone to miss out.

The Neck Nuzzler
You will need 106 yards or more of 6-weight yarn and size US 15 circular needles (24 or 36 inches in length)

 
Cast on 128 stitches, place marker and join, taking care not to twist stitches.

Work Pattern:

Rows 1 & 2:  *k2, p2*, repeat around
Rows 3 & 4:  *p2, k2*, repeat around

Repeat Rows 1 - 4 until piece measures 4.5 to 5 inches in width.  End with a Row 2 or a Row 4.

If you are using one skein of yarn, just be sure to leave enough to bind off your stitches.

Bind Off all stitches knitwise.  Weave in your ends.
 

This pattern is in multiples of 4, so feel free to make it longer by casting on extra stitches in multiples of four.

 The scarf is about 60 inches in length.  Feel free to shorten it by casting on fewer stitches, again, decreasing in multiples of four.

To make it a mobius infinity scarf, twist your stitches before you join in the round.

  1. SO cute but easy pattern. Is this the stitch called "mistake rib"? So to make it mobius simply twist one needle before joining? Please sign me up for the Headhuggers newsletter also. thanks!

    1. No, this is a box stitch - worked lengthwise. But, yes, just twist a needle before joining.

      I can not sign you up - your email isn't displayed - you have to fill in your email address in the box above.

  4. Twisting stitches does not a mobius make! A mobius is a HALF twist. Sorry, I'm a math, as well as a knitting freak.

  7. It says twist your stitches.....I can't explain that in any other way....I suggest that you look for a video on making a mobius scarf.

  8. Just a thought...this pattern really should be worked over 4 stitches plus two. The current method results in 4 stitches of the same type in a row at the join. Depending on the yarn used this may be more or less noticeable. I suggest Row 1 being *K2, P2* ending with K2 and Row 2 being *P2, K2* ending with P2. This makes the pattern truly 'infinite'.

    1. No, when it is knit in the round, as written, it is worked over 4 stitches. There is no 4 stitch of the same type at the join......you join the first row after casting on and work k2, p2, which is 4 stitches.

      You are writing about a 2 row pattern, while this is a 4 row pattern. Rows 1 and 2 end with a P2 and rows 3 and 4 end with a K2 already........adding 2 stitches would make the pattern incorrect.

  9. Centering your type makes it hard to read.

    1. I always just copy & paste, making my own document to print. That way I can rearrange photos and usually print on fewer pages, plus, it's saved. Hope it works for you! -S.Jarvis
