The Infinity Sweater

This is the Infinity Sweater, from One Girl Circus and it is a great pattern! I made it a few weeks ago before school started, and it has been getting so much wear! It's been perfect to wear on these subzero temperature days we've been having recently. I get cold easily and it adds just the right amount of warmth!

There are so many options when it comes to styling this sweater. One of my favorite ways to wear it is knotting it in the front. So easy, but cute!

The wrap around is another one of my favorite ways to wear it, and I'm actually wearing this style right now. You just wrap the front panels all the way around and either tie it in back or tuck it in. It's nice and cozy!

You can drape the front pieces across your shoulders.

It looks like this from the back. I haven't really styled the sweater this way yet.

Dress it up a little by adding a belt around the waist. I really like this style too!

Just have fun with it!!
For this project, I used a navy blue knit from the thrift store. Between my mom and I, we got so much use out of it! The infinity sweater calls for 2 yards of knit fabric and after I made it, there was plenty of fabric left. It's a thin knit, which works well for this project. It does roll a bit, which is mostly noticeable on the sleeves since there is no hem, but I don't mind. The pattern doesn't call for hemming or finishing the edges, but if you really wanted to, you could.
The pattern includes 3 pieces - sleeve, front panel, and back. It sews together very quickly and cutting took the longest. I think it only took me about 15 minutes after everything was cut. That's my kind of project!
How would you style this sweater?


  1. That is so cool! I had not seen one of these before, but I love all the options it gives you!

  2. I need to get more knit so I can make myself one of these. I would probably wear it the ways you wear it. I miss you and can't wait until you come home next week. Hope you are having a good week at school.

  3. I love love love it belted! Super cute!

  4. Wow, I'm with Sisterino... love it. Think I may need to make one of these. It looks so cosy and easy to wear.
