Kiss of Frost Scarves and Cowl

The fall is finally here and so is the first frost morning. Fall is my favorite season; I always look forward to the smells and colors that come with it and to the feel of comfy wool garments that I am finally able to wear.
I always liked infinity scarves as they make perfect fall accessories, but none I saw were reversible. So with that in mind I set out to create my own 100% reversible scarf. This design can be made as a regular scarf, as an infinity scarf or as a cowl, the choice is yours.
We hope that this fun pattern will give you lots of joy making and wearing it. It is simple enough for an adventurous beginner and is interesting enough for a more seasoned knitter.

The pattern was originally written for aran weight yarns, however the complete instructions for fingering, sport-dk, worsted yarns are also included.

Also, you have several edge options to chose from: garter, asymmetric, and picot.
