Black Panther Infinity Scarf Inspo


If you're like us, you probably always have your 'knit-radar' (knitdar?!) on. You can imagine the surprise of knitters across the country, when a beautiful, knitted scarf showed up in movie theaters last month. The hugely successful film, Black Panther, featured the character Nakia, played by Lupita Nyong'o. Nakia fabulously wore the infinity scarf, full of green, blue, and brown tones. It was love at first sight, and we've been thinking about it ever since! 

We heard from so many of you who said you were dyeing (pun intended) for the details, as were we! Though we knew that there was some Madelinetosh in Plaid Blanket included, we weren't quite sure of the remaining yarns. Luckily for knit-nation, the designer, Jeff Gillies, released the pattern over on Ravelry last weekend!




In the original scarf, Jeff included 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden - 430, 1 skein of Malabrigo Mechita - Hojas, 1 skein of Madelinetosh Dandelion - Shire, and 2 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light - Plaid Blanket. Unfortunately, both the Dandelion line and the Shire colorway have been discontinued by Madelinetosh, but we would recommend that you substitute another skein of Tosh Merino Light in its place, such as Pheasant or Joshua Tree. These colorways are pictured below!




We have more of these colors on their way to us soon! In the meantime, here are a few of our recommendations for similar colorways that can be used, or we encourage you to select your own! This versatile scarf would be gorgeous in a variety of color combinations, so let your creative juices flow! (Just remember to send us pictures, so that we can see all of your wonderful creations!)

Noro Silk Garden: 381 Rust, Turquoise, 417 Rust, Brown, Natural, 426 Greens, Coral, Ink

Malabrigo Mechita: 416 Indiecita866 Arco Iris886 Arequita

Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light: Fir Wreath, Oak, Pool


Christine's yarn selection!
One of our sweet, local customers, Christine, was the first person to alert us to the inclusion of a knit scarf in the movie (thanks, Christine!). She has been busy planning her own version of the scarf, and shares her story below:


"My eyes lit up when I first saw the rich, earthy greens and browns of this shawl worn by the beautiful Lupita in the movie Black Panther. Knitting is a such a valuable part of so many people’s lives, and the costume designer honored that by showcasing this unique shawl.  Seeing the Instagram post about Madelinetosh’s vibrant Plaid Blanket used for the shawl was so exciting! Knitters came together as they described how the shawl caught their attention in the movie. Creative minds aren’t quiet, so people sought out the designer, yarns and pattern. Making something beautiful is rewarding but making something with a larger community is enriching. I was so excited to order my yarn from Jimmy Beans and use the Ravelry groups to inspire and support ideas. My Plaid Blanket yarn and complementing colors are wound and ready. We all start with the same tools: yarn, needles and stitches, now it’s time to collaborate to make art." - Christine

For her scarf, Christine has selected (from L to R in photo) Noro Silk Garden - 417, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light - Plaid Blanket, Malabrigo Arroyo - 416 Indiecita, and Malabrigo Arroyo - 855 Aguas. We love this color combination, and can't wait to see Christine's finished project!

It's your turn, knitters! Will you knit your own Nakia's Infinity Scarf? What color/yarn combination will you choose? Let us know in the comments below - we can't wait to create with you!

  1. Well good luck to those who can follow the pattern. I need something written in an easier to follow format. Also, at the end are instructions on how to fold the scarf, etc. I would think an illustration would have helped a great deal. I would love to see photos of anyone who successfully knits this garment.

  2. This is super helpful! Thank you, Jessica! I love the Malabrigo Indiecita so I think I'll use that one in my rendition of it! Also deciding between TML Fir Wreath and Oak! Hmmm...*thinking, thinking*. All opinions are welcome! Thanks again :)

    1. Nadia, did you decide on your colors? I love the Indiecita colorway also, and think that it would go well with Fir Wreath or Oak. Can't wait to see your creation!

  3. Unfortunately, the pattern is for machine knitting. If someone would give me a translation of weave over, weave under, etc., in handknitting stitches, I would be much happier!

  4. If someone (the designer) could give photos of what the scarf actually looks like worn and what it looks like when not on the body, we could fudge our own rendition of the wrap.

  5. I’m 2/3 done. Once I figured out that the chart was written with the wrong side showing it made a lot more sense. Apparently that’s how machine knit patterns are written.

  6. Check out the projects page on Ravelry. At least one of the Ravelers posted pictures that were taken of the shawl on display somewhere. Super helpful!

  8. fandango - Saw the trailer, wasn't too impressed, then the hype from all around got to me and bought a ticket online for afternoon show in a new theater with recliner seats. Rushed over there to make it on time, sat through no lease than 30 minutes of movie commercials and the the movie started. Looked very promising but only for the first 10 minutes then got very weird very fast. Anyway watch it since you are curious but in my opinion, first 40 minutes or so super stupid and boring. Gets much better after the fight between bp and the American black dude. Too many coming back to life, all African dialects mishmash, too much dependency on cgi etc. the Korean car chases were so bad and poorly executed. I don't think if people see others dying and drenched in blood that they will gather around to take pics, rather than Callander by for help, running away etc. super immature execution esp in the beginning. Btw I am neither black or white person

  24. About Greenland

    Greenland is the largest island on the planet and the least populated country in the world. Most of the island is within the Arctic Circle, and the majority of the island is covered by the Northern Ice Cap, so the waters surrounding the northern shores remain frozen all year. Ice as thick as two miles can be found in the middle of the island, creating incredible mountaineering opportunities.
    The history of the island goes back as far as Eric the Red and his band of Vikings who settled on the southwestern coast. There is evidence of Norse habitation for 500 years, but during the Little Ice Age, their settlements disappeared. The inhabitants of the island are now mostly the Inuit peoples who have populated the region for nearly 1000 years.
