Crystal Palace Yarns - FREE PATTERN - Knit


Danube Aran & Merino 5

Estonian Rib Infinity Scarf

Designed by Gail Tanquary

Description:  The Estonian Rib in alternating bands of Danube Aran and Merino 5 produces an almost entrelac effect.  The bottom edge of the infinity scarf has pointed scallops for extra interest.  You can wear this long or double it up for cozy comfort.


Level: Easy - Intermediate (working in the round, k2 tog, yo's)

Size:  6" high x 52" circumference


  • 1 ball Crystal Palace Danube Aran (shown in 601 "Jardin")
  • 2 balls Crystal Palace Merino 5 (shown in 5214 "Deep Forest")
  • Crystal Palace Bamboo 35" Circular Needles in US sizes 6 and 8, or size needed for gauge
  • Stitch marker
  • Shawl pin (optional)

Gauge:  6 sts=1" in Estonian Rib pattern on larger needle




The pattern is worked in the round on a multiple of 6 sts.


Using larger needle and Merino 5, cast on 282 sts. Place marker and join, taking care not to twist sts. Purl one round.


Begin pattern:

There is only one row to the pattern, but colors are changed every 4 rows to create “entrelac-like” pattern.


Pattern row: * K2, yo, K2, K2 tog.* all around. 


Repeat this round for 4 rounds.  Change to Danube Aran and work this round for 4 rounds.  Continue in this manner, alternating every 4 rounds between Merino 5 and Danube Aran until 9 color sections are completed, ending by working Merino 5.


Continuing with Merino 5, knit one round even.


Decrease round: K6, * K4, K2 tog*.  Repeat between * around – 236 sts.


Change to smaller circular needle and work in K1-P1 rib for 1”.  Bind off in rib.


Wet thoroughly and block, placing a pin in each point.


Optional: Use a shawl pin to secure fold in infinity scarf if desired.


Suggestions for wearing:  The scarf can be worn long or wrapped twice around the neck as for a cowl.
