I can’t help but think that cashmere feels the need to be touched just as much as we feel the need to touch it. What better place to have it rest than around your neck, giving you a warm hug on blustery days. This beautiful variegated yarn calls for a simple stitch pattern so the colours can be the star of the show. Add a couple of chunky buttons for a little extra interest and you’ve got a soft, stylish accessory to show off all winter long.
Mariette is worked flat in seed stitch - TV knitting at its best! Buttons are sewn on near the cast-on edge. The scarf is intended to be wrapped around the neck two times and then buttoned closed, echoing the infinity-scarf style without having to cast on 300 stitches.
Yarn: 220 yds (200 m) Cashmere 4 Ply by Handmaiden Fine Yarn 100% Cashmere; 185 yds (170 m)/50g skein, or any beautiful variegated DK weight yarn. The pattern can easily be modified to suit other yarn weights as well.
