Pattern Details

A billowy cowl or infinity scarf to knit in several sizes (petite/medium/tall) and two shapes with an openwork pattern that makes a feature of yarns with a soft halo. Knit vertical in the round as a circular cowl or begin with a provisional cast-on and work flat lengthwise to create an infinity scarf (a flat scarf is also an option). The motif is very easy to memorize and the pieces grow quickly, making this project a good choice for that last minute gift or for a beginning lace project. Use slightly fuzzy yarns that bloom to lend body to the fabric. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. This scarf and cowl are designed to coordinate with the Cirrus fingerless mitts to create a matching three-season set. Finished Size: infinity scarf: 26(50, 60) inches in circumference and 7.5(7.5, 9.5) inches wide cowl: 19(22.5, 26) inches in circumference and 5.5(7, 9) inches in depth Gauge: 18 sts and 28 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it.
