Free Loom Knit Scarf Pattern: The Mossy Forest Path Infinity Scarf

The Mossy Forest Path Infinity Scarf is inspired by the green moss that grows in the forests of my hometown. We have plenty of trees that provide enough shade for these squishy plants to grow and thrive.

By mixing two shades of green, we achieve this interesting colorway that elevates the simple textures of the loom knit linen stitch.

About the Loom Knit Scarf Pattern

The Mossy Forest Path Infinity Scarf is knitted back and forth on a round knitting loom. Using the linen stitch, we will create little bumps that resemble traces of moss along forest pathways.

Before we dive into the full pattern, I’ll show you how to create the slip stitch on a knitting loom. You don’t need to connect the last stitch to the starting stitch as this pattern is meant to be knitted flat. 

The linen stitch is created by alternating the slip stitch and the knit stitch in the same row and a row of knit stitches in between. You will find step-by-step instructions below!

How to Slip Stitch On a Loom

Slip stitch is a way to skip a stitch (aka: not looping yarn through it), creating an extra tall stitch with a horizontal bump of yarn in front of it. This is the stitch that gives this pattern all that gorgeous texture!

Slip Stitch Step 1: Tug your yarn strand towards the base of the peg.

Slip Stitch Step 2: Coming in through the top of the stitch, hook the yarn strand up through the stitch on the peg.

Don’t pull the old stitch off the peg!

Slip Stitch Step 3: With the yarn still hooked, bring the yarn up over the top and to the back of the peg.

Slip Stitch Step 4: Tug the working yarn tail until it drops down and lies flat behind the peg.

Infinity Scarf Round Loom Knitting Pattern:

After casting on, you will be alternating the knit stitch and slip stitch every other row, with a row of e-wrap knit stitches in between.

Casting On:
E-Wrap cast on all 36 pegs. Do not connect the first/last stitch on the loom (remember you’re working back and forth, not in a complete circle).

Linen Stitch Pattern
Row 1: E-Wrap knit stitch on all pegs to the end of the row.
Row 2: *Knit 1, slip 1* repeat the pattern between * * to the end of the row.
Row 3: E-wrap knit stitch all pegs to the end of the row.
Row 4: *Slip, knit* repeat the pattern between * * to the end of the row.
Repeat Rows 1 – 4 until your piece is 65″ long, measured from the cast on row.

Helpful Hints: When to Start with a Slip or a Knit

Sometimes we get a little bit lost in the pattern. You can keep all the notes you want but it’s a good idea to learn how to study your fabric to see what stitch comes next. Below, we’ll help you “read” your knitting to see whether you’re on row 2 or row 4 of the linen stitch loom knit pattern.

When to start with *Slip, Knit*:
If the 3 stitches below your peg do NOT have a slip stitch, start the row with a SLIP STITCH.

When to start with *Knit, Slip*: If the 3rd stitch below your second peg HAS a slip stitch, start the row with a KNIT STITCH.

When to E-Wrap Knit Stitch Around

ALWAYS make an E-wrap knit stitch row after making a “knit, slip row” and after making a “slip, knit” row. You’ll also always make the e-wrap knit stitch row when you’re heading back toward the starting peg!

Binding Off

Take all the stitches off your pegs using the loom knit flat edge bind off

Step 1: E-wrap knit the first 2 pegs.

Step 2: Transfer the second loop over to the first peg. Knit these stitches together.

Step 3: Move the loop over to the empty peg. Knit the next peg over.

Step 4: Transfer the new stitch onto the previous peg. Knit them together.

Repeat steps 3 & 4 until you have cast off all of the stitches!

Don’t forget to knit the FINAL peg!

Cut the yarn, leaving about 40 inches of yarn tail!


Fold your finished fabric with the short ends together. Sew the short ends of your finished scarf together using a whip stitch!

Once you reach the end of your scarf, it’s time to hide your yarn tails!

Yarn Fiber Suggestions

For teens to adults, you can use the usual acrylic yarn or acrylic mix. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to use natural fibers like cotton and bamboo yarn. This will help prevent any skin irritation.

Inspired by Moss-Covered Forest Paths…

There are plenty of forests where I live and I always see many pathways covered in green moss. It’s always been a pretty sight. Especially when I spot patches of moss with different shades of green. So I thought that I’d bring that look into something we all wear!

I wanted a pattern that uses new textured stitches while also being simple enough for those just learning how to loom knit a scarf. I also wanted a loom knit scarf pattern that will look good using basic colors.
