The Lotus Flower Knitted Infinity Scarf – Free Instructions and Video

The Lotus Flower Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern and Video Tutorial are here for you! Lotus Flower Infinity Scarf Knitting

It’s an elegant, and quite unique design Joanne created for an infinity scarf. Knitted in the round with circular needles.

 

This is one of the favorite projects we’ve made lately along with our very gorgeous Knitcrate yarn.

 

We used one of our favorite yarns so far from Kitcrate: Vidalana. Getting our Knitcrate box in the mail every month truly feels like a blessing, like you’re getting a gift every month. This is particularly true fon yarn-aholics like us.

We start with a few rows of ribbing and finish it with the same amount of ribbing as well.

If you’d like, you can adapt the pattern to make the scarf a bit more loose (add more stitches to the main lotus repetition).

Here’s the video tutorial to go along with the instructions:

INSTRUCTIONS

Note: Since we will be working in the round, rows 1 and 3 are different than working with straight needles.

Use 2 numbers bigger needles than the yarn calls for. 

I used #6US needles.

Use 29 inch long needles for the Cowl or a hat (or 2 circular needles, or double-pointed needles, or the magic loop).

Cast on 144 stitches  (Chain Cast on) preferably.

Work 6 rows of knit 4 purl 4 ribbing, in the round. (Multiple of 8).

On the next round, add 3 stitches ( in order to have a multiple of 7, for the stitch)

Round 1.- *purl 2, knit 5*

Round 2.- *purl 2, knit 5*

Round 3.- *purl 2, knit 5 with a double turn of yarn around needle on each*.

Round 4.- *purl 2, *unravel 5 stitches, one by one, knitwise, return to left needle,

             pick-up the first 3 stitches knitwise  and return them to the left needle (these 3 are now twisted),

             then knit all 5 stitches through the back: knit, yo, knit, yo, knit*.

Repeat these 4 rows 12 more times. 13 times in total or longer if you wish.

On the first round of the ribbing, you need to knit 2 together 3 times, throughout the round,

              in order to have the original 144 stitches. 

Work 6 rounds of knit 4, purl 4 ribbing.

If you want to create a flat project with this pattern, we also have the pattern on a flat version:

Flat version Lotus Flower Knitting Stitch Pattern:

Multiple of 7 plus 2 for the edges.

Use the needles that the yarn calls for.

k=knit

p=purl

yo=yarn over

Repeat from * to *

Row 1.- K1 for edge, k1, *p5, k2,* end with p5, k1 and knit last stitch for edge.

Row 2.- K1 for edge, p1, *k5, p2,* end with k5, p1 and knit last stitch for edge.

Row 3.- K1 for edge, k1 *purl 5 with double turn each, k2* end with k1 and k1 for edge.

Row 4.- K1 for edge, p1, *unravel 5 stitches, one by one, knitwise, return to left needle,

             pick-up the first 3 stitches knitwise  and return them to left needle (these 3 are now twisted),

             then knit all 5 stitches through the back: knit, yo, knit, yo, knit. Take the 5 off the left needle,

             p2,* end with the special twist on 5, p1 and knit last stitch for edge.

Repeat these 4 rows for pattern.
