Infinity Scarf -- Free Pattern

This is an update from December on our newest free pattern.  Our Infinity Scarf knit with less than 1 skein of Jade Sapphire Silk Cashmere and US 6 circular needles.  It's a simple knit that creates a lovely finished project.  Thanks Laura for knitting our store sample, I have been sporting it for the last couple of cold days but now have resigned to knit my own.   I have some Jade Sapphire at home in this beautiful grey silver.

Beautiful! I surfed in while looking for patterns for Infinity scarves, and this is one of the loveliest I've seen on the Internet.

Not to be nit-picky, though, but if you twist your first row it isn't a Moebius (as stated in your endnote), it's simply a twisted ring. A moebius is a continuous one-sided surface; your twisted ring will have 2 distinct surfaces. This is a concept taught in US math curriculums in about 3rd to 5th grade.

The picture seems to be covering up some of the instructions. Can that be fixed? I am a new knitter. Thanks!

Hi, I was wondering what is a good substitute for the Jade Sapphire Silk Cashmere?

Soooo what other yarn could you use instead of this silk cashmere? What number yarn is it?

I am interested in the Infinity Scarf pattern, but the instructions are covered by the photo. Can you fix this, so the pattern is visible?

Thank you.

Okay - from a total rookie - what size/type of needles do you use for this pattern? It is just what I'm looking for! Thanks.
