Loom Knit Fair Isle Infinity Scarf (Free Pattern)

Premium Loom Knitting Pattern (free) 

By This Moment is Good Designer, Nicole F. Cox

Recently I've been noticing many more loom knitters venturing into the area of Fair Isle loom knitting. This technique is named after the island of Fair Isle, which is one of the Shetland Islands. This technique is easy to do on the loom as it requires no extra skills if you already know how to do the regular knit stitch. That doesn't mean that it doesn't require work, you will have to pay attention to color changes and carry your yarn on the back of your work. After your efforts, you'll be rewarded with a WOW piece to show off to all of your friends and family!

The pattern is both charted and written so work off whichever method you are most comfortable with. It's knit in a tube so you don't have to weave in the ends, yay! Just leave them inside the knitting and they won't show. This infinity scarf came about after the new hobby lobby opened in our area and I found a wonderful Hemp and Acrylic blend yarn. I needed the perfect project to show off the wonderful texture and muted colors in this yarn. 


I'm really pleased with how the Fair Isle pattern came together with the chosen yarn. The loom knit infinity scarf has a very organic feel and suits my designing style perfectly. As you loom knit this scarf, the anticipation grows as the colorwork slowly appears from the bottom of the loom. It's what I like most about Fair Isle, it makes my heart sing.

Wear this beautiful scarf/cowl wrapped twice around the neck or hanging loose. It looks nice either way. The yarn used in this project is also perfect for those allergic to wool but still want a more natural/organic feel to their fiber. The small amount of hemp in this mostly acrylic fiber gives it a more natural feel.

Pattern Notes
  • Infinity scarf is knit as a tube so that floats remain hidden within the inside of the scarf.
  • Carry non-working yarn/color by laying it on top of the working yarn (behind pegs) as you knit. No need to carry the yarn unless you do not use a color for more than 2 pegs. The front will look much neater if you catch your floats as you go.

HI I would love to do this pattern but I cant figure out how to print it out and the page is protected so I cant copy & paste
thanks!

Nicole F. Cox said...

I'm sorry, due to theft of our blog content, we no longer allow printing or copy/paste. Patterns must be worked off of the blog. Thanks for understanding!-Nicole

Thank you for letting us know. I sure wish I could save the pattern, but I understand. It's so sad and annoying that people would steal your blog content. Maybe someday you might consider sending your free patterns to your subscribers via your email? I'm not sure how that works, I'm just thinking out loud. I think it's wonderful that you are making your patterns available for free in any event.

God bless and thanks...

Hello, shadowlight...Actually we have always sent our blog posts out to our email subscribers (for 4-1/2 years) but stopped this practice last week when the blog was updated. Unfortunately, bloggers just join the email list. I've had to send out many takedown notices and would need a team to keep up with it all. Last week I found one of my private pattern videos on a big craft website. I told them to take it down and that they should be ashamed of themselves. This is a blog with a lot of technical information, it's not just a journal type blog and it takes hours upon hours to photograph, design patterns, write patterns and knit the samples. I just can't keep making it easy for the content to be stolen. Thank you so much for your input and I'm sorry a few people ruin it for the many. I will continue to bring you as much quality content as possible and I really appreciate your understanding!-Nicole

Hi Nicole,

It's such a shame that you have had to take such measures. I think it's great that you are still trying to make available information and instruction despite the people who make it difficult for you. I can't believe that a big craft website would do something like that. :( They should know better. All your hard work shows on the website and I look forward to exploring it more when I have a little time. (I'm also looking forward to your new book).

Oh, I'm Marlicia, btw. I don't know if you remember me, but I just joined your blog recently and you sent me a very sweet email. :)

God bless and have a super day!

Nicole F. Cox said...

Thank you for your kind words! I didn't recognize your screen name but I do recognize your actual name lol. So glad you let me know so in the future I'll know who's commenting. You have a great day too Marlicia, take care!-Nicole

Lovely

Nancy Brown said...

I think my heart actually skipped a beat when I saw this......I want to learn how to make this!!!!!

Faith said...

Love this scarf. I’m not a loom knitter. Is there a flat version or double knitting pattern? Or a way to convert the original pattern to either? Thank you

Nicole F. Cox said...

Hello Faith,

So glad you like this pattern! You shouldn't need a separate pattern for this since the chart is given and you could just work off the chart on your needles. Just figure out how wide you would like your scarf to be by knitting a swatch of the chart and then do the number of chart repeats. This scarf was designed to be knit as an infinity scarf/tube in the round. I'm sorry this is the only pattern for this scarf. Have a great day!
