Tiffany Infinity Scarf

Once all this snow melts it will finally start to transition into spring, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring is the Tiffany Infinity Scarf! This scarf is knit with Patons Lace yarn in "vintage" (although any lace weight yarn works) and is very light and fluffy-- the perfect companion for a cardigan or tee shirt!



The Pattern:

You will need: lace weight yarn (0.5-1.0 skeins, I used 0.75); size 13 needles

CO (LOOSELY) anywhere from 20-40 stitches

Row 1-7: knit
Row 8: purl
Row 9: knit
Row 10: purl
Row 11: knit

Repeat these 11 rows for the entire length of your scarf. You can alternate stockinette and garter whenever you'd like, I chose to do 7 rows garter and 4 rows of stockinette for the majority of the scarf mixed in with larger and smaller intervals.

At end, BO LOOSELY! Sew both ends together with excess yarn.


Although this could be knit in pure stockinette (as long as you block out the curls), I think the "stripes" that the garter stitch creates adds a nice variability to the scarf. Ravelry page found here.





My scarf turned out to be 5 feet long which sounds like an awful lot, but ends up being quite short. I double wrapped the scarf around my neck and it nicely drapes for 15 inches.


This is the perfect spring or summer time scarf because it is so light weight (you'll forget you're even wearing it!) and the lace allows for plenty of breathing.

  1. Great scarf and such a simple but effective pattern. I can see this teemed perfectly with a t-shirt in the spring.

  5. Hi, I clicked your link from the Blogging group on Rav. Your blog is great! I love this scarf, it's beautiful and you did a great job. I think it's really great that you're such an avid knitter, I wish I'd taken up yarn crafts at a younger age myself. I'm following your blog now. I'm looking forward to reading more. :)

    1. I'm so glad! I suggest using large needles (ie size 13) because then you don't need to do any fancy lace stitches, doing just garter or stockinette produces a beautiful and interesting faux lace. Let me know how your scarf comes out!! :)

    I have some very expensive, like the second or third most expensive, yarn that I bought to make something for one of my daughters some day. This may be just the thing. I have two 40 gram balls of this luscious pink yarn that has been waiting for the perfect pattern. She likes pink. I think this is a perfect match. Thank you.

  11. The scarf is beautiful, and I plan to make it as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter. How many stitches did you cast on when you made this lovely scarf?
    Many thanks. Barbara

  12. Hi, I am making this scarf right now and just a quick question - is the five feet long before or after you join the ends? I guess I am wondering if I actually have to knit until it is ten feet long and then join it?
