4. Cluster Stitch Infinity Scarf
This infinity scarf pattern gives you a hack for accomplishing the cable stitch…without quite accomplishing the cable stitch. Because of this slight technicality, it’s recommended for experienced beginners. Still, the pattern is made to be easy to follow.
If you love it as much as the author does, you’ll be making a set of three or more.

Some technical terms come into play, so we recommend this for advanced beginners.

A lot of these infinity scarfs are closer to a cowl in length. If you’re looking for a true infinity scarf that is nice and long and can be coiled around you for fall and winter warmth, this is the one.
