Pattern: Infinite


Infinite $7 on Ravelry (no account necessary)

Your very own mohair cloud! Just one skein of your favorite brushed mohair yarn will give you this perennially popular accessory: an infinity scarf. Wear it long like a super-drapey cowl, double it up for that casual scarf look, or pull the second wrap up over your head like a smoke ring.

What you'll love about knitting Infinite:
  • You get to use that luscious skein of Kidsilk Haze or any other mohair/silk blend yarn that's been hanging out in your stash or calling to you at your LYS.
  • Working in the round means you just knit, knit, knit (with a couple of super-simple rounds for variety).
  • Provisional cast-on means you'll bind off both ends in the same way - top and bottom of your cowl will match

What you'll love about wearing Infinite:
  • You get to wear that beautiful yarn right where it belongs - around your gorgeous face!
  • Surprise! Infinite squishes down to almost nothing at all yet keeps you warm and toasty on a cold day.
  • You can wear it three ways:
    • drapey long cowl
    • doubled-up scarf
    • dramatic smoke ring
