Pattern last edited on July 22, 2016 to specify that the cast on must be loose.

This striped, mesh-like cowl (infinity scarf) features a simple, easy-to-memorize stitch pattern. Alternating sets of “k2tog, yo” and “yo, ssk” worked over alternating stockinette and garter stitch sections create a wavy, chevron-y fabric, and an interesting play of colors and texture.

The cowl is knit in the round, starting with a single garter ridge followed by several rows knit in pattern, and finally another garter ridge before the bind off. If you’d like a more prominent garter stitch border you could work 4 or 6 garter stitch rows after the CO and before the BO.

Yarn – The pattern lends itself nicely to all kinds of yarn and color combinations (solid + solid / solid + variegated / semi solid + variegated, etc). For the sample shown in the photos, I used approximately 450 yards of yarn - about 230 yards of a painted, two-color sport weight yarn (Henry’s Attic Superwash Sport Paints) as the main color, and 220 yards of a solid fingering weight yarn (Cascade Heritage Sock Solids) as the contrast color.
