Acantha infinity cowl is worked in an incredibly soft cashmere blend and an interesting stitch pattern, reminiscent of the texture found on lower section the thistle blossom. This design is all about the interplay of the rich colors of a hand-painted yarn and the textured stitches. Although it may look much more complicated, the interesting pattern is created with very simple slipped stitches and basic yarn overs.

The cowl knits up quickly and is appropriate for men and women, which makes Acantha a great last-minute gift project. The size of the cowl is easy to customize thanks to the small pattern repeat, so it can be made to fit anyone, from a small child to a large adult.

Pattern was originally exclusive to the Ply! Yarn, Art & Handwovens during the 2016 Hill Country Yarn Crawl.
