Easy Infinity Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, recently in season four, you have probably noticed the beautiful knitted pieces that the main character Claire and her daughter Brianna wear, including shawls, wraps, scarves and fingerless mittens.

Inspired by Brianna wearing a bulky knit infinity scarf, in Fraser’s Ridge, North Carolina, this scarf is knit flat and seamed.

You can wear it doubled around your neck as a chunky cowl or stretched out to wrap around your shoulders for extra warmth.

A basic knowledge of knitting is all that is required for you to get started.

Outlander Knitting Patterns

Both Claire and Brianna’s costumes have motivated many knitters to make shawls, infinity scarves, and more throughout the four seasons that have aired so far.

I wanted to make a collection of knits that are inspired by both Claire and her daughter Brianna, from mittens to scarves.

Infinity Scarf

The Outlander infinity scarf pattern is perfect for the colder weather, as it has been knit with bulky weight yarn (05), in Hayfield chunky tweed with wool, shade 0183 – grey.

Using knit stitches, you will create an interesting design, knit flat on straight needles, then seamed to join.

I knit with two strands of that yarn together and used one 10 mm (US 15) and one 20 mm (US 36) straight knitting needle to create large open stitches.

The Knitting Basics

The scarf uses basic knitting stitches – knitting in garter stitch to create the design.
