I had recently shared a a tutorial on how to make a blanket scarf and while creating my pins for Pinterest I started thinking about how to write the plural form of the word scarf. I always say scarves but I noticed when I write the word I tend to write it out as scarfs.
I looked it up and found that either way is correct, though most spell it as scarves. Though that is interesting, it is not the reason for this post. I am sharing my Seed Stitch Scarf Pattern today.
This is a pretty simple pattern that I wrote up a few years ago. It is a popular scarf that I usually sell out of when I bring them to craft fairs. I do have a PDF version of this pattern available in my Etsy Shop if you want a version of this pattern without ads and in a form you can download.
The pattern is easy to remember and you can also modify it easily by knitting it as long as you want, you can even play around with it so that the scarf can be wider than I have suggested.
So, with that said, let’s begin!
Seed Stitch Infinity Scarf
PDF version available in my Etsy Shop
Materials for Completion:
Needle: US knitting needle size 10.5
Yarn: 4 Medium Weight 2 Skeins (400+ yards)
Yarn used in image – Loops and Threads: Urban
You can easily use a larger size needle and yarn to make this into a chunky knit scarf, you might need to play around a bit with the number of stitches cast on and rows knit.
sl1 = slip one stitch
sts = stitches
k = knit
p = purl
Cast On 43 sts
If you decide to use a heavier weight yarn you may want to decrease the stitches so that the scarf isn’t too wide. Be sure with this pattern to cast on an ODD number of stitches.
Row 1: sl1, *k1, p1, repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Continue pattern repeating row 1 until work reaches desired length. The final length should be at least 52 inches long.
Binding Off: sl1, *k1, Insert the tip of the left hand needle into the first knit stitch on the right hand needle and pass over the last stitch you knit. One stitch will remain on the right hand needle. Repeat from * to end. Cut yarn and pull through loop, leaving a long tail (approximately 25 inches) for stitching together the two ends of the scarf.
Finishing off Scarf:
Lay scarf on a flat surface and bring the two ends together.
Stitch the two ends together using the tail.
Weave yarn up and around the knit stitch over the cast on edge.
Weave yarn down and around the knit stitch over the bind off edge.
Pull yarn tight to close the seam. By using this method, you should end with a nearly invisible seam on the right side of the work.
Weave in all loose yarn.
I hope you have enjoyed knitting this scarf, and found this pattern easy to follow.

I am new to knitting. Can you use circular needles for this?
Yes, you can use circular needles, I almost always do. You just have to turn your work like you normally would if you want to knit it flat.
So you only sl1 st once at the beginning of each row? And the repeat is k1p1 back and forth?
Hello 🙂 Yes, you slip the first stitch of each row, then repeat k1, p1 to the last 2 stitches, you knit the last 2.
