Meditate is a soothing, rhythmic knit that’s designed to use every last yard of a single skein of luxury yarn. Slipped stitches form tiny bands of double knitting in the mostly garter stitch design—providing small waypoints that keep the knitting engaging, and create an elegant fabric.

When you purchase the pattern, two versions will be added to your Ravelry library:

The original pattern, Meditate, is written for two sizes: a wide single loop that will scrunch cozily around the neck, and a longer loop that can be worn as an infinity scarf or doubled for extra warmth. Both cowls are worked flat from end to end.

Meditate in three colors is a fun variation on the original pattern, and uses three colors of Shalimar Yarns Aerie for the long version of the cowl.
