Birthday Cake Infinity Scarf

Celebrate AllFreeKnitting's tenth birthday with a good-enough-to-eat knit infinity scarf pattern, a gift from us to you!

Updated May 31, 2021
Birthday Cake Infinity Scarf

As thrilled as we are that AllFreeKnitting has turned ten, we're even more thrilled to have an audience as passionate about knitting as we are. For this reason, we're celebrating with the Birthday Cake Infinity Scarf, an easy lacy scarf knit on circular needles made to look like a quintessential cake.

Panels of pure white are broken up by stripes of variegated yarn for a tooth-achingly sweet frosted look, and for a little bit of party fun, ten tassels each (one for each year AllFreeKnitting has been around!) dangle from either side. Knitters of any skill level can easily master this lacy infinity scarf because of its easy-to-memorize repeat, but the stripe pattern helps keep things interesting for the easily-bored.

This incredible pattern is tenth in a series of printable patterns we're releasing to celebrate AllFreeKnitting's 10th birthday!

Check out the rest here!

Tassels:

Step 1: Place ten locking stitch markers spaced evenly along the CO edge of your infinity scarf, approximately 27 stitches apart each. These stitch markers will indicate where you place a tassel.

Step 2: Cut 40 8” strands from CC. Strategically cut the colors of your choice from the variegated yarn if that appeals to you. In this example, 10 strands of 4 different shades each from the variegated yarn were cut, and mixed and matched together in the tassels for a colorful look.
Holding two 8" strands together, make a tassel by folding strands in half together.
