Knitting a continuous scarf can be done in several ways. You can knit a large, long scarf and then sew the ends together so they connect. Or, you can knit it in loops if you have experience knitting. Both methods produce a good continuous scarf.
Method 1 of 5: Simple Concatenated Scarves
Basically, it's a long scarf, sewn at both ends so that it connects into a loop.
Step 1. Make the initial 60 stitches
Step 2. Make K 2 P 2 along the rows
Step 3. Repeat this row until the scarf is at least 180 cm long
- You can also make it shorter if you want, the recommended length if you want it shorter is 95cm.
- You can make it longer but remember that this is a thick scarf that hangs around your neck!
Step 4. Make a loose final rib stitch, twisting slightly as you finish knitting
(Rib stitch = K1, P1 to end of row.)
Step 5. Make the final stitch
Align the side of the initial stitch with the side of the final stitch and sew the two together, facing the edges inward as you sew.
Some people recommend twisting one end before joining the two ends together, to create a looped scarf that twists. It's all up to you, because when you wear it, you will also have to twist it
Step 6. Done
Method 2 of 5: Sequential Scarves Made in Rounds
If you know how to knit in a loop, this scarf is super easy to make. You just choose the pattern and type of stitch.
Step 1. Use long circular knitting needles
If you're using a short one, you'll only have enough to make a neck scarf, which is a small continuous shawl you just can't wrap it around multiple times.
The needle you use must be 4 mm or larger
Step 2. Choose the type of stitch and pattern you want
Easy stitch for beginners-top stitch in even rows, bottom stitch in odd rows. You can adjust the number of rows as you work on it.
Step 3. Choose the length of your scarf
You will have to measure the final length of the stitch you are using by making a sample cut with the initial 15 stitches and estimating the size. This will help you calculate how many stitches you need for every 5cm, so you can calculate how many stitches you need to complete.
Step 4. Make the initial stitch
Using your calculations from the previous step, make the initial number of stitches you need for the length you want. Then connect the start and end of the row and start knitting in a loop.
Step 5. Knit continuously in a loop
Step 6. Continue knitting until you reach the width you want
Make the final stitch and your scarf is done.
Method 3 of 5: Hooded Neck Cover
This pattern can be worn as a neck cover or pulled over the head with some still covering the neck. On a note-usually these aren't long enough to wrap around.
Density: 7 stitches for 2.5 cm
Step 1. Use a needle with a size of 2.25mm first
- Make an initial 152 stitches on 3 double-ended needles (for a total of 50-50-52).
- Merge; don't get the line twisted
- Make a rib stitch K 2, P 2 in a loop to a height of 3.8 cm.
Step 2. Change your needle to 3mm size
Knit with the following pattern:
- First round: Top stab
- Second round: Top stab
- Third round: Top stab
- Fourth round: Stab down
- Fifth round: Top stab
- Sixth round: Stab down
- Seventh round: Top stab
- Eighth round: Stab down.
Step 3. These eight rounds form the pattern used
Repeat 13 more times, for a total of 14 repeating patterns.
Step 4. Switch back to the 2.25mm needle
Make a rib stitch K 2, P 2 to a height of 3.8 cm.
Step 5. Make a loose end stitch on the rib stitch
Step 6. Weave the ends of the thread into the stitch neatly
Your neck cover is done! Try wearing it to fit.
Method 4 of 5: A Simple Stitched Shawl Using Your Pattern
Step 1. Choose a pattern
A continuous shawl can be made with various shawl patterns, provided that the size is long enough and the shape remains rectangular. Also must have sufficient width. Experiment to find out which pattern gives a nice finish to your scarf.
Step 2. Knit the pattern
Step 3. Sew the ends together when you're done, to make a loop
A shawl in your favorite pattern!
Method 5 of 5: Abbreviations
- K = Knit / Top Skewer
- P = Purl / Bottom Stab
- If you use wool, don't wash it in hot water; always use warm or cold water to clean it, also use laundry soap suitable for wool or use hand soap. Always support wet woolen clothes to prevent them from spreading, including when lifting them from the sink.
- A continuous scarf is also known as a neck scarf, although a continuous scarf is usually longer than a neck scarf. The end result is almost the same, depending on the length of the scarf.
