So . . . as with so many things I create, I had no pattern. It just sort of evolved into this fabulous, warm, stretchy and cushy infinity scarf / neck cowl. What is the proper terminology anyway???
I got the yarn on sale from Joann’s a few months ago with no particular project in mind. This project took exactly 3 skeins of yarn. (2 Almond, 1 Pristine)
I picked up my 24″ 15 US / 10.0mm Clover Takumi Velvet Bamboo Circular Needles (larger than recommended) and cast on 120 stitches, and joined to a circle. Then I knit a 2 x 2 rib stitch until I ran out of yarn . . . attached the contrasting color and knit, knit, knit until I ran out of yarn again. (My original plan was to continue in the rib stitch pattern, but I am glad I changed my mind.) Next, I went back to the main color and knit the rib stitch again until I felt I had about enough yarn left to bind off. (pretty ballsy, eh?)
So, this ‘over-sized’ cowl (depending on which way it stretches) is approximately 13-16″ wide by 58-62+ inches around. I absolutely love it, and have received many compliments. Because it is a chunky/bulky weight yarn and large needle, it works up fairly quickly too.
I have three skeins of this wonderful yarn left, in Almond. I think I will make another, made up on the Rib Stitch only.
I am presently a ‘happy knitter’!!!
