Mist Infinity design features reversible eyelet and lace rib stitch patterns. Made in looser gauge and with generous width and length, this accessory can add a statement to your wardrobe.

This cowl is knit sideways making the pattern easily customisable. The yardage and size is given for the long loop to wear it draped around the shoulders in a double wrap style, as shown in the sample. This design consists of two main stitch patterns that can be arranged differently, if desired, and the loop can be made shorter to wear it pulled over the shoulders, like a capelet.

The ends of a knitted piece are sewn together along the cast-on and bind-off edges to form a loop. For a seamless look, the ends can be joined with the Kitchener Stitch instead. To add more interest to this accessory, I used the yarn in two contrast colours.

Materials:

3.75mm/ US #5 needles, or size to obtain gauge;
4mm/ US #6 needles, or size to obtain gauge;
waste yarn for provisional cast on;
tapestry needle;
blocking wires and pins (optional)

Yardage required (approx):

MC: 400 yards (360 meters), CC: 100 yards (90 meters)

Feel free to use any other fingering/sock weight yarn with similar properties and which can be worked in close to the pattern gauge.

Skill level: Intermediate. (Useful links to tutorials on Techniques used in this design are included in the pattern)
