For a typical scarf, we are going to require the following, 400 yards of worsted weight yarn, 24-inch, size 7-circular weaving needles, scissors, yarn needle and stitch makers.

Assuming you have your colors right. Start by casting on 200 sews. This is the first step. Secondly place a marker to join in the round, and make sure you do not twist the stitches/sews. Next, work around one in a K1 (knit stitch) and P1 (purl stitch) pattern. That is knitting one stitch and purling the stitch around the whole 200 stitches. Do step one and two over again until you have about 2 inches of the scarf. The rows produce a seed stitch frame that ensures the long edges do not roll. Next, weave in stockinette stitch, to make the scarf about five and a half inches of width.
By now, you have already created a smooth center piece for your scarf. Continue with the seed stitch pattern up to about two inches then fix all the stitches lightly. Up to this stage, you are almost done with your knitting. You then need to cut the working yarn, but remember to leave a substantial four inch tale, for weaving the ends.
Always choose your yarn wisely and consider substituting bulky or chunky yarn for two strands of worsted weight yarn where need arise. With this simple steps, you can do great learning how to knit an infinity scarf.
