This design came out of a request from my mother-in-law, Suzanne. She wanted a long infinity scarf/cowl that she could wrap twice around, in red, with “cables and stuff”.
I came up with this reversible pattern that’s easy to memorize. For her version (red), I finished it off by knitting a faux button band between the two ends and adding buttons to both sides: two looks in the same cowl!
The blue version is grafted together and links to helpful grafting videos are provided in the pattern.
Don’t want a cowl? Nothing could be simpler than than working this pattern flat and making a scarf.
