Purl Ridge Scarf

I just finished a dance performance this weekend in Urbana so I had some time these past few weeks to knit while waiting in the theater and during long evenings of tech/dress rehearsals. One of the projects I worked on was an infinity scarf requested by a friend and I have to say he picked the best yarn for this project from my stash (Hedgehog Fibres silk/merino singles). It was a pleasure coming up with a simple design because the yarn was amazing to work with and I hardly had to think about what I was doing. Long rows of easy knit or purl stitches are a favorite of mine.


I'll have to make one of these for myself soon because it's so easy to wear several different ways.





Best of all, this new pattern is free so here's the download link!

The scarf is gorgeous -- I can see one in each nephew's future. However, I have a question. I've read the instructions several times, and I don't see what stitch you used to sew the ends together to make the knitted strip into a loop. (I'm assuming it's a mobius-strip type of infinity scarf.) Did I miss that?

Thanks! Annag
