Gatesloop provides a classic infinity cowl shape with a modern spin thanks to engaging stranded colorwork and simple stockinette. You’ll find this cowl seamlessly moves across your needles since it is knit entirely in the round and in one piece! The icing on the cake is that Gatesloop includes fingering and sport weight options to make this cowl inviting for experienced and novice knitters.

Gatesloop is cast on via a provisional cast on. Then, both sides of the body are knit. The cowl is then closed with a 3 needle cast on.

QUICK TIP:
Create a multi-dimensional look by mixing and matching yarn bases. Or streamline the look by knitting with one base in 2, 3 or 4 colors. The options are endless!
