A captivating, showstopper of a stranded panel is paired with lively peerie stripes for colorful warmth in this cowl or infinity scarf. Inspired by the vibrancy of a Mediterranean market and the riot of colors and patterns you might see there on a summer day, this cowl will keep you engaged while you knit the panel and will be a project you can take with you during the pleasing peerie stripes. Wear it wrapped once or twice around the neck.

This is a perfect project for using up scraps of fingering weight yarn and would also look great in a gradient yarn against the main color!
