Who doesn’t need a big, scrushy seed stitch infinity cowl? I certainly, suddenly, do. This one is cast on using the brilliant moebius CO as demonstrated by the incomparable Cat Bordhi in her moebius CO tutorial video. It allows you to knit from the cast on middle of the ring, to the long outer edge, following the infinity moebius shape.
And as there’s not much more to it than that, the instructions are free on my blog.

As of November 2013, I’ve also uploaded a pdf version to Ravelry - Knit On!
