About the Acai Infinity Circle Scarf:
The name of this scarf was inspired by the color yarn I chose to use for this project; although it's referred to as 'grape', the color personally reminds me of Acai berries. The entire scarf is just a 1x1 ribbed pattern, which can simply be completed with the knit and the purl stitch (watch the knit stitch 'how to' tutorial here, purl stitch tutorial here). I chose to use straight needles to create a long rectangular shape (like a regular traditional scarf), then just join the two ends together. Using one full skein (256 yds), the final measurements of my scarf ended up having a circumference of 44 inches and width of 5.75 inches.
Materials I Used:
- US size 9 (5.5 mm) straight needles
- Red Heart Soft Yarn (color: grape 3729); 1 skein (256 yards)
(this yarn recommends using US size 8 needles, but I chose to use size 9 for a more "loose" knit)
