Knit Pattern: Chinese Fans Infinity Scarf

Free Knit Pattern: Learn the Chinese Fan Stitch and create a lightweight infinity necklace with sock weight yarnI had a tough time deciding whether I should post this pattern now or wait until next spring. This colorful infinity scarf is a lightweight accessory, so it's best for cool, not cold weather.

Here in Tucson, the temperatures rarely drop below freezing, so I like to wear scarves like this from November to March, so why wait?

Let's start knitting!


  • 2 - 230 yd/210 m, 1.76 oz/50 g skeins of Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Sock Yarn in Surf
  • US 4 (3.5mm) knitting needles
  • stitch markers (optional)


CO -cast on
p - purl
k - knit
ssk - slip two stitches individually, knitwise then knit the stitches together through the back loops
yo - bring the working yarn forward, then over the right needle
k2tog - knit 2 stitches together
RS - right side
WS - wrong side


It's a scarf. I didn't work out an official gauge swatch for this project, but 40 sts in the pattern is approximately 5 1/2 inches. If you work a few rows of the pattern and your scarf is significantly wider or narrower, try a different set of needles.

Also, you don't have to use stitch markers, but it makes it easier to keep your place in the pattern.

CO 40

Row 1 (RS):P40, turn.

Row 2 (WS): K 40, turn.

Row 3: P2, place marker, *ssk, yo, k1, yo, k4, k2tog, place marker* 4 times, p2, turn.

Rows 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12: K2, p36, k2, turn.

Row 5: P2, *ssk, k1, yo, k1, yo, k3, k2tog* 4 times, p2, turn.

Row 7: P2, *ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog* 4 times, p2, turn.

Row 9: P2, *ssk, k3, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog* 4 times, p2, turn.

Row 11: P2, *ssk, k4, yo, k1, yo, k2tog* 4 times, p2, turn.

Repeat Rows 1-12 until piece measures 48 inches.

Bind off leaving a long tail. Use the yarn tail to join the two short sides of the scarf. Your scarf can be looped once and worn like a cowl (as shown above) or don't loop it at all for a long and lean look.
